Inside Anne Hathaway’s ‘Rustic’ Million Dollar Wedding (EXCLUSIVE)
The wedding between Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman was a lavish affair with a white, pink and rustic theme — set against the romantic and sprawling backdrop of the Big Sur, Calif. coastline.
180 guests — 18 tables with ten people each — sat amongst more than $100,000 of flowers in a private marquee erected especially for the reception.
Each table had 12 mini centerpieces.
“The floral arrangements and wedding décor were simple and rustic,” a source told Celebuzz, noting they were transported from Los Angeles to the Central Coast of California for the occasion.
The flowers were arranged by The Velvet Garden, a floral design studio that specialized in high-end one of a kind designs. The florists previously created arrangements for the weddings of Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon and Natalie Portman.
“The flowers took over a week to create,” added the source.
More exclusive details after the jump.
The wedding was designed by the same planner who handled Portman’s Aug. 4 nuptials to Benjamin Millepied, Yifat Oren.
The reception featured the San Fransisco-based jazz trio ‘Americano Social Club’ for the first hour, before a DJ from Los Angeles had guests dancing the night away.
“The band had no idea who they were performing for,” said a source.
“Someone told them that they were playing at the wedding of ‘Catwoman’ and the bassist guessed ‘Michelle Pheiffer!?’
“They found out it was Anne’s wedding just 30 minutes before the wedding.”
Two photographers captured every moment and even used vintage cameras in keeping with the theme of the occasion.
Hathaway, 29, chose a custom Valentino gown, the same designer who last week described the Oscar nominee as being “like my daughter.” The groom, 31, wore a traditional tux.
Earlier, the bride and groom prepared for the wedding in a five-star luxury hotel.
An onlooker said: “Adam was so excited. He posed for photos with his mother who was wearing a navy blue gown with chiffon shoulders.”
The weekend started with a rehearsal dinner at the Ventana Inn and Spa.
The location of the nuptials was kept secret from the guests who were taken to the venue via shuttles. Guests had to wear neon green bracelets to gain access to the buses.
One vendor who worked on the Les Misérables star’s wedding told Celebuzz he estimated the occasion cost more than $1 million.
