Here comes the bridesmaid...again!

Wearing a light gray sleeveless gown with a thigh-high slit and chunky-heeled strappy sandals, Lauren Conrad served as a beautiful bridesmaid at friends Cassie Herschenfeld and Ben Katz's wedding at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in Ojai, California Saturday,  six weeks after she announced she had given birth to her and husband William Tell's first child, son Liam. This marks the first time the Hills alum and fashion designer has been photographed in public in months.

Conrad was seen walking down the aisle with a groomsman wearing a yarmulke. Her former co-star Lo Bosworth also served as a bridesmaid.

Lauren Conrad and William Tell: Romance Rewind

"Lauren brought the baby with her, but he spent the day in the room with a nanny," a source told E! News exclusively. "Lauren spent some time getting ready with the other bridesmaids, but she had to go back to the room and feed Liam a lot. She was such a good sport about being a bridesmaid so soon after giving birth, but Cassie is one of her dearest friends and she didn't want to miss it."

"After the ceremony, she skipped the cocktails and went straight back to the room for awhile," the source continued. "William was with her and they were both in it together. They are doing well and this was their first weekend away with the baby. They handled it really well and had a great time. A lot of their closest friends were there and it was fun for them to catch up. Lauren looked amazing so soon after giving birth. She made jokes about her dress covering everything up, but you would never know she just had a baby."

In July, Cassie posted on her Instagram page a needlework display Lauren had made for her that depicts her, Ben and their dog, titled "The Katz Family Est, August 19 2017."

Conrad was also photographed serving as a bridesmaid at another pal's wedding almost exactly three years ago. There, Bosworth served as a bridesmaid as well.
