Music was definitely in the air for Lea Michele's wedding to Zandy Reich earlier this month in Napa Valley, California. Of course, that's not surprising given her resumé that ranges from starring on Broadway in shows like Fiddler on the Roof and Spring Awakenings to her star-making role as Rachel Berry on Glee.
In a new Instagram post, Michele shared photos of several of the thoughtful ways she and her wedding planner, Lisa Vorce, wove the actress's love of song into her special day. "Growing up I was never the girl who knew exactly what her wedding would look like 👰🏻 Whether it would be big or small or what my dress would look like," Michele wrote. "And when I got engaged we didn’t know if we should do east coast or west coast or destination. But one thing I have always known....is that @lisavorce would be my wedding planner."
"You do what you do so effortlessly and your attention to detail is outstanding. You have an incredible gift and the way you work with everyone makes the process so fun and easy!" she continued. "Zandy and I can’t thank you enough for making our dream wedding come to life! We are forever grateful and miss you already. Here’s just a small glimpse at what was the greatest day of our lives... 🥂✨"
You can see that some of that "attention to detail" came in the form of sheet music accents in different parts of the celebration. Their simple, chic cake sat atop a stand covered in musical notes. They also carried over the theme in their seating charts and escort cards, as well. And those "his" and "hers" napkins featuring the recipes of signature cocktails are fun and functional.
Michele wore a strapless gown with a structural sweetheart neckline, hand-tufted skirt, and a silk gazar draped over the corset-style bodice. "My dress is very classic, which was very important to me,” Michele said of her pick. “It’s important to [Zandy and me] that we look back on our photos, and that they’re classic. I wanted to stay away from a lot of current trends.”
Given that so many Glee alums were in attendance (like Becca Tobin, Darren Criss, and Jonathan Groff), we can only hope that there was also an impromptu a cappella moment or two during the reception.
