How's this idea for a female reboot? Wedding Crashers, but starring Kristen Stewart and her girlfriend, Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell. K Stew and Stella popped in on a Winnipeg wedding reception this past Saturday, surprising the two brides, Kirsten and Kayleigh Jennings, who mostly knew who their new guests were.
After Kayleigh and Kirsten's backyard wedding, they and their guests were celebrating at Pizzeria Gusto, the owner of which has "helped out at an event" for Stewart recently, according to the article. (Stewart has been in Winnipeg shooting a movie.) "The owner came up to me, and he said, 'Hey, is it OK if Kristen Stewart and her girlfriend Stella come and have a few drinks with you guys?' and I was, like, 'Yeah, totally! Yeah, no problem. Um, who is that?'" bride Kirsten Jennings told CBC.ca.
Soon enough, both couples were dancing the night away—Kirsten Jennings estimates that Stewart and Maxwell stayed at the party from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. "I actually wasn't as star-struck as I thought I would be," said Kayleigh Jennings, though Kirsten Jennings noted that her "Aunt Linda was extremely excited."
"They looked just like two normal girls. They look a little Hollywood, but if we didn't know who they were, I don't know if I would have known," said Kirsten Jennings. The couple treated their new guests like they would anyone else: with kindness. They showed them "Southern hospitality. Winnipeg hospitality" said Kayleigh Jennings, an Oklahoma native.
The newlyweds have been together since 2010, or, to put it in K Stew terms, since Twilight: Eclipse. They met while bartending in the Cayman Islands, according to CBC.Ca, and eventually relocated to Canada in part because same-sex marriage wasn't federally recognized in the United States yet. But their next move will be to Austin, Texas, to get out of the Canadian cold.
Congratulations to the brides and their many special guests!
