Mandy Moore and musician Taylor Goldsmith tied the knot on Sunday during a small ceremony with the biggest surprise being Mandy’s unique wedding dress.
The couple got married late in the afternoon on Sunday in Los Angeles among close family and friends during a beautiful ceremony. A source close to the couple described the wedding:
“An intimate backyard wedding at Mandy's home that started just after sundown on Sunday evening. There was a small group of family and friends that looked to be about 50 people.”
Reportedly, the wedding had a ‘very boho’ theme which included ‘rugs on the floor surrounding the altar,’ with flower arrangements ‘and with lots of large feathers.’
The reception got held at a private event space in Los Angeles called the Fig House, where Taylor sang to his new spouse and guests.

The source said there were a ‘number of food stations around the venue, including meat, chicken, vegetarian, raw food, flatbread, cheese and charcuterie and more,’ that got prepared by Room Forty.
Another station featured a whiskey station and plenty of wine. Instead of the traditional wedding cake, 12 different cakes got put out for guests to feast on.
Mandy’s dress surprised everyone, as she opted out of wearing a traditional white gown. Her choice for the big day was a gorgeous pink-hued couture dress designed by Rodarte.
Similarly to Mandy, George W. Bush’s daughter, 36-year-old Barbara, also got married during a private ceremony in the backyard of the Bush family home in Maine, overlooking the ocean.
On October 7, Barbara and screenwriter Craig Coyne got married surrounded by around 20 close family members. Barbara looked stunning in her custom Vera Wang gown.
Her ‘something blue’ was a pair of earrings from her twin sister Jenna, and her ‘something borrowed’ got represented by a bracelet her grandfather gave to her grandmother on their 70th wedding anniversary.
Being as private as she is, it is no surprise that Mandy Moore only recently shared the friendship she and Meghan Markle has. The two met while Mandy worked on the film, ‘Licence to Wed’ in 2006. The producer Trevor Engleson is Meghan’s ex-husband.
They became friends and spent a lot of time together in Jamaica while the movie got filmed and even spent New Year’s with them that year. Later on, over the summer she also spent time in the Hamptons with them.
When Mandy found out about Meghan and Prince Harry’s engagement in 2017, she reached out to congratulate the couple, and much to her surprise found out that Meghan loves her show. Mandy said:
"She was very kind and said that she really likes This Is Us. She watches the show, so that was pretty cool. She's just a normal, regular girl."
