If you've been craving more details about comedian Amy Schumer's recent wedding to chef Chris Fischer, you're in luck. Us Weekly just interviewed an insider who attended the event, and the source shared additional information about the surprise celebration.


According to the attendee, Schumer went an unconventional route and invited guests to the wedding via text. "It was, 'Hey, this is happening. If you can make it, great. If not, no worries,'" the person explained. The casual nature of the invites extended to the rest of the celebration.




The source described the nuptials as "chill," and relatively last-minute. Nonetheless, "Everyone was having a good time," on the day-of, the insider recalled. "It was very laidback—just how Chris and Amy wanted it." Schumer's only worry before saying her "very sweet, touching, and, of course, funny" vows? The weather was supposed to be bad, but fortunately, "it ended up being beautiful."


The source also shared more about the event's setup, the couple's attire, and the day's activities. The Malibu, California, wedding—which took place at a rented mansion overlooking the ocean—was decorated with succulents, roses, and anemones. At the reception, Schumer changed out of her Monique Lhuillier gown, and into a sweater and pants. As part of the festivities, she sang songs with her sister, who also served as one of her bridesmaids.


As previously reported, Schumer and Fischer had been together for just months before deciding to get married. The actress confirmed news of their union on Instagram, posting photos from the wedding. She's since shared more images documenting the big day.
