Drew Barrymore Gushes About Her 'Perfect' Wedding Day

"It was as fun and meaningful as we ever could have hoped," she tells PEOPLE


Dear friends, close family and a flower-embroidered Chanel gown designed by Karl Lagerfeld himself – no wonder Drew Barrymore is a beaming bride.

“The day was perfect,” Barrymore, 37, told PEOPLE the day after tying the knot with art consultant Will Kopelman. “Everyone we love and care about was there. It was as fun and meaningful as we ever could have hoped.”

For the June 2 ceremony at her $5.7 million Montecito, Calif., home, the expectant actress and Kopelman “just wanted a backyard wedding,” says event planner Yifat Oren.

Oren and co-event planner Stefanie Cove delivered a “vintage romantic”-themed fete, creating what Oren called an “ethereal” feel for the wedding party and guests Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Jimmy Fallon and Busy Philipps.

The decorations for the traditional Jewish ceremony included vintage lace, pink flowers and green garlands.
