Barrymore and Kopelman on the cover of People
According to the magazine, which has the exclusive wedding photos in its June 18 issue, the 37-year-old star — who has been making movies since 1980 — wanted the event to be low-key. "They just wanted a backyard wedding," event planner Yifat Oren told People. The bride wore a custom-made Chanel dress (Kopelman's father is the former CEO of the fashion company) and more than 14 carats in diamonds. She carried pink flowers — including peonies, garden roses, and spray roses. During the traditional Jewish service, which was attended by 190 family members and friends, Barrymore pal Cameron Diaz read the E.E. Cummings poem "I Carry Your Heart with Me," which Diaz read in her 2005 movie "In Her Shoes."
During the reception, wine from the actress' own line of Barrymore Wines was served while guests including Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Steven Spielberg, and Jimmy Fallon watched the couple, who dated for a year prior to marrying, share their first dance to "No One's Gonna Love You" by Band of Horses. As they made their big exit at the end of the night — during which they drove off in a classic Mercedes convertible decorated with pink roses — the Beatles song "I Will" played.
As has long been rumored, the magazine notes that Barrymore, who has been married two times before, is expecting her first child with 34-year-old Kopelman, who is an art consultant and comes from a family that's prominent in the New York social world. Though the couple doesn't confirm their baby news directly, they pose with their hands on her stomach in one of the wedding photos and a source tells People that Barrymore "is telling people that she's ready for a more family-oriented life."
