Palm Springs, CA
Christina Applegate and Johnathan Schaech were married on October 20, 2001 at the three-acre Cree Estate in Palm Springs, California.
Over 130 guests attended, including Applegate’s “Married With Children” costars Katey Sagal and David Faustino, along with friends Cameron Diaz and her then-boyfriend, Jared Leto.
The bride walked down the aisle with two parents wearing a hand-beaded silk organza gown by Reem Acra. Her hair was styled by Ken Paves and worn in a loose chignon, with a 100-year-old Cynthia Bach diamond-encrusted comb to hold it in place.
She carried a bouquet of white and lavender blossoms to match her bridesmaids’ lavendar Reem Acra gowns.
The groom wore a black Hugo Boss suit.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, the bride and groom presented each other with a red rose, something they planned to continue on anniversaries to symbol difficulties being only temporary.
Following the ceremony, guests gathered poolside, where Chinese lanterns hung from palm trees and candles lit the water.
The dinner menu included fish, chicken and vegetarian dishes, followed by a four-tier white chocolate wedding cake for dessert.
Following their wedding night, the couple honeymooned at the Bora Bora Nui Resort in Tahiti.
