Beth Ostrosky married Howard Stern at New York’s Le Cirque on October 4, 2008. The bride wore a white chiffon Georgina Chapman for Marchesa gown, with cutaway back and sides. Ostrosky clutched a bouquet of 20 deep purple calla lilies, as she walked down the aisle to a song performed by Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines.
Officiating the vows was actor Mark Consuelos, Kelly Ripa‘s husband, who became an ordained minister on the Internet one day prior. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel read a poem during the tearful ceremony, in which Howard promised Beth he would “always Tivo all of their favorite shows.”
One hundred and fifty guests were in attendance, including Donald and Melania Trump, Joan Rivers, Barbara Walters, John Stamos and Billy Joel.
Rather than wear a wedding ring, Howard had the letter “B” tattooed on his ring finger. Beth chose a more traditional band by Suzanne Wilson.
The wedding was planned by Le Cirque general manager Elli Jafari, who was commissioned by Ostrosky for the job. New York florist Floralies decorated the restaurant like a fairy tale, with 2000 weeping willows, white orchids, a chandelier and glowing lanterns.
Following the ceremony, guests dined food by chef Christophe Bellanca, including tuna tataki, scrambled eggs with white truffles, tortelloni with Taleggio cheese, and a main course of striped bass with caviar.
The reception was filled with performances by songwriter Phoebe Snow, who serenaded the newlyweds with “You Send Me,” and Billy Joel, who sang “You’re My Home.”
After dinner, guests enjoyed seven different desserts, including a four-tier wedding cake with a replica of the couple’s bulldog, Bianca, on top.
Dancing continued until after 1 a.m. in the restaurant’s wine lounge, which was converted into a disco.
