Recalling about her big day, the 'Water for Elephants' star gushes, 'Everything went perfectly, right down to the dress, which I just loved.'
Reese Witherspoon has opened up about her "wonderful" and "perfect" wedding to Hollywood agent, Jim Toth, on March 11. The "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde" star walked down the aisle for a second time on March 26 at her lavish ranch in Ojai, California in front of star guests including Renee Zellweger, Matthew McConaughey and Tobey Maguire.
The actress has now spoken out about the big day, telling Hello! magazine, "The wedding was a wonderful experience. Everything went perfectly, right down to the dress, which I just loved. Monique (Lhuillier, designer) made it specially for me. She's been a family friend of Jim's for a very long time and it was an honor to be able to go into her atelier and have her make one of her beautiful gowns for me. I was just delighted."
Witherspoon, who has two children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal, insists she knew she had found "Mr Right" the moment Toth proposed, adding, "I knew he was 'The One' all right. A clue was when he asked me to marry him and I said yes right away. Didn't have to think about it. It just feels like the right thing at the right time in my life..."
"Everything's great with my kids. They get along with Jim really well. Well, obviously I wouldn't have married him if they hadn't... I don't profess to be an expert on love. I've had my ups and downs in relationships as you know, and as I get older I get more nervous about things, not less. And certainly I've had trepidation about getting into a relationship and getting married again."
"But you know, life is short, and happiness is just as important as any other element of your life, and I think if someone gives you an opportunity to be happy, then you should jump at it. I've never wanted fear to be a reason I didn't do something. That's no way to live."
