Celebrities share favorite memories from their wedding day

Kelly Wearstler
Wedding Date: October 19, 2003

"My wedding dress was the first piece of clothing I ever designed," says the star decorator—and newly minted fashion designer—of the off-the-shoulder feather-and-lace gown she created just two weeks before marrying hotelier Brad Korzen in Los Angeles in 2003. "It was a mix of three different kinds of lace, topped off with this incredible vintage pearl pin in back," explains Wearstler, who has decorated homes for Gwen Stefani and Cameron Diaz, and whose fourth coffee-table book of interiors, Rhapsody, hit shelves last month. Together, Wearstler and Korzen also made old-Hollywood glamour all the rage with their fantastical, high-luxe Viceroy Hotels. (She's the visionary; Korzen is founder and CEO of Kor Hotel Group.) So it made sense that the pair would marry poolside at the fabled Paramour Estate amid topiary trees and white roses, in front of 200 friends and family members. Her favorite part of the day? "The fact that I was marrying my soul mate!" she says.
