As the host of Shedding for the Wedding she cheered for calorie-conscious couples who were attempting to win their ideal I do’s, and on May 21, 2011 actress Sara Rue achieved her own dream wedding as she exchanged vows with her intended since August of 2009, Kevin Price.
As though emerging from the chrysalis of her former life, a butterfly themed-ceremony was an apt choice for the actress as she symbolically celebrated both the physical and personal transformations which have taken place in her life. Shortly after Tweeting: “Went for a long walk on the beach w/ fiancé. About to start getting ready – thanks for all the sweet tweets and well wishes! 🙂 #weddingday” the actress who dropped 50 lbs. when she took on the role of Jenny Craig spokesperson slipped into an ecru-hued Amsale gown and strolled down the aisle at the Bel-Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades, California in a pair of butterfly-accented shoes by Aruna Seth, the designer who created footwear worn by Pippa Middleton at the royal wedding of the century.
According to People magazine, approximately 100 friends and family members–including bridesmaids who had donned vintage dresses and butterfly brooches for the big day– witnessed the bride profess her devotion beneath the shelter of a chuppah during a ceremony which joined the couple in matrimony.
Pronounced husband and wife, the soul mates’ soles expressed their joy as the happy couple danced down the aisle to the tune “Everlasting Love.”
At the reception, the Rules of Engagement cast member and her husband received well wishes from guests who dined on vegetarian fare, latkes and red velvet and pumpkin caramel wedding cakes from Jamaica’s Cakes. After playing beer pong (a game which drew the couple together at a Fourth of July party years before) the newlyweds embarked on a honeymoon excursion to French Polynesia.
