The Speidi wedding party was comprised of Heidi's sister and sometimes Hills star Holly Montag, as well as Spencer's always-instigating sis, Stephanie Pratt, both dressed in matching floor-length, yellow silk chiffon gowns, while the groom was joined by—shocker!—two nonceleb friends.
Montag filled the role of blushing bride, donned head to toe in nearly $1 million worth of Neil Lane jewels and a gorgeous, flowy, white strapless gown, custom designed by star fave Monique Lhuillier. Pratt and his groomsmen all wore Ermenegildo Zegna suits.
Montag's father walked her down the aisle following Pratt's niece Ava, the flower girl.
Afterward, guests gathered outside Westminster Presbyterian to toss yellow rose petals on the newlyweds, who were all the while playing it up and kissing for the crowd. Montag then gathered her girlfriends to toss the bouquet, only to have Cavallari—who is rumored to be replacing Conrad on The Hills next season—jump up and make the catch!
Love was definitely in the air after the vows, as Jenner and girlfriend Jayde Nicole kissed and huddled close to keep warm and Bobby and Patridge seemed happy to see each other, passing the time while laughing together.
In the hours leading up to the "I do's," the streets surrounding the Pasadena church were swarming with paparazzi staked out to get their money shot, while up above a squadron of five skywriters attempted to spell out "Spencer Loves Heidi," but the afternoon breeze thwarted their efforts.
Once the wind died down, Pratt came out for a photo-op with fans and eagerly pointed out the planes, which were now repeatedly writing, "Heidi's No. 1 Hit on iTunes." Nothing wrong with a little shameless promotion on your wedding day, right?
Following the ceremony, Speidi stopped off at their hotel room so Heidi could change into a short white dress, then headed to hot spot Social Hollywood a little after 9:00 p.m. for the first of their two wedding receptions. Guests were greeted at the door with peach margaritas and snacked on cucumber-rolled tuna tartare, salmon pancakes and chicken salad, while the room was radiant, decorated in greens and yellows. Daffodils, hydrangeas and orchids not only filled the reception area, but adorned the five-tier, candied pearl-white wedding cake.
Everyone seemed over the moon for the duo, including Heidi's father, Bill. He told E! exclusively, "It's great! I love Spencer like my own son and Heidi is the apple of my eye." And Spencer's reflections on his wedding day? When asked by E! if he was happy, he giddily responded, ""Let's think about it for a moment. Yeah, I'm really happy."
A more intimate celebration with family and close friends is set for later tonight at Sidebar at Cut in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Last night's rehearsal dinner, also held at Cut, was an affair all its own. The soon-to-be-weds both wore black and dined with guests on filet mignon, butter lettuce salads and onion rings and french fries, while guests were treated to lifesize photos of Speidi displayed around the room.
And not unlike a scene out of The Hills, Pratt and Holly went at it during the dinner when he called her "immature" while cameras were rolling. Needless to say, Holly was none too thrilled about the moment being captured on tape.
The couple are debating between honeymooning in Tahiti and Fiji, along with a pit stop in Costa Rica for the NBC summer reality series, I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!
