Last night, professional Beautiful People who have side jobs acting Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello were joined in holy matrimony. The truly charming thing about this is that most of the photos from the wedding weekend have been shared on Sofia’s Facebook page and are the kind of amateur snapshots that range from slightly blurry to way too much flash that look like they could have been taken at anyone’s wedding. Observe:
Honestly, I find it pretty adorable. I’m immune to most ‘Stars! They’re just like us!’ style pandering but this just looks like a fun wedding that just happens to involve a lot of famous people, rather than the over-stylized and hyper-controlled feeling I get from most celebrity wedding photos. I mean, look at the carpet in this hotel:
I feel like I’ve BEEN in that hotel, just by the carpet alone. Maybe not with the cartoonishly good-looking man at my side and a dress that probably costs as much as my college education, but it’s all so familiar.
Congratulations to the happy couple. I wish them both many years of making regular mortals feel completely inferior.
EDIT: I’m seeing some sources reporting that this is a wedding rehearsal party, and not the actual reception. That looks a hell of a lot like a wedding dress to me, and I wouldn’t put it past anyone to slip the tabloids an incorrect date to keep their real ceremony private, but it is possible that they’re actually getting married later today. Still, the photos are pretty cute and clearly still a celebration of their love.
