Although the stars twinkled in night sky over New York City on October 3, 2008, their shine could not compete with the star wattage at Le Cirque restaurant as Donald Trump, John Stamos, Billy Joel and his wife Katie Lee, Barbara Walters, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Chevy Chase, Joan Rivers and Robin Quivers gathered to witness the King of All Media crown Beth Ostrosky his queen.
The early autumn chill in the air had no effect on Stern’s long-time love as she wrapped herself in a white shawl and stepped out of the black limousine which bore both the bride and groom to their wedding destination. The fabric had a double role for the evening, also shielding the paparazzi’s view of the bride’s Marchesa gown.
According to a pre-“I do” report in Page Six magazine, Bianca– the couple’s beloved English Bulldog— was to be a bridesmaid in the ceremony, wearing a crystal-embellished collar from Hampton Hounds for her stroll down the aisle.
Although she was presented with a 5.2-carat, emerald cut engagement ring from jeweler Richie Winick after accepting the shock jock’s February 2007 proposal, the bride intends only to wear the wedding band which was slipped on her finger during a ceremony conducted by actor Mark Consuelos (husband of Live with Regis and Kelly star Kelly Ripa, who was among the invited guests). As a piece of jewelry which holds a special significance, the diamond on her engagement ring will get a chance to shine on special occasions.
Following the exchange of vows, the New York Post reports that the newly pronounced Mr. and Mrs. and those dear to their hearts dined on bass garnished with a light sauce and caviar and sampled slices of a wedding cake topped with a likeness of the couple’s “baby,” Bianca the English Bulldog.
