Mandy Moore Marries Taylor Goldsmith in Intimate Backyard Wedding
Mandy Moore has tied the knot with fiancé Taylor Goldsmith
Moore’s close friend and makeup artist Jenn Streicher shared a series of stunning photos of the actress wearing a pink Rodarte wedding gown and veil.
“Yesterday was pretty magical. I laughed, I cried and I danced real hard. @mandymooremm ❤️ @taylordawesgoldsmith,” she captioned the post, which she later deleted.
A source tells PEOPLE the small, intimate ceremony took place Sunday afternoon in Moore’s backyard in Pasadena in front of about 50 friends and family members. All the decor was pink and matched Moore’s dress.
“The ceremony started right after sunset,” says the source. “It was boho chic and very romantic. There were a lot of pink decor, flower arrangements and candles.”
Room Forty catered the reception. There was no formal, sit-down dinner — instead, guests instead enjoyed food from different stations.
“It was a fun and very relaxed reception,” says the source. “Guests eat, drank and danced. Mandy looked ecstatic and stunning.”
According to E! News, the Dawes frontman groom performed.
“The most pure and poetic expression of love in a day there ever was,” Kelly wrote alongside several photos of the smiling newlyweds. “Magic ✨”
“Your collective talent is almost as impressive and inspiring as your love for each other. Last night was ✨” wrote Thompson in her own post, led by an adorable photo of the pair holding hands on stage while Goldsmith sang to Moore.
“High on love (and music) from a magical weekend celebrating two of the brightest lights. 💕” added Schuman in a separate post.
The This Is Us actress, 34, and Goldsmith, 32, got engaged in September 2017. He proposed with a custom Irene Neuwirth ring featuring a round-cut diamond on a rose gold band after the pair had dated for two years — and met on social media.
“I took a picture of their album and posted it on Instagram,” Moore told PEOPLE in October 2017 of her now-husband’s band. “Somehow, Taylor saw it and sent a note to me. We started emailing back and forth, then we went on a date and the rest is history. Thanks Instagram, for helping me meet my fiancé!”
While separated (Goldsmith is often on tour; Moore shoots This is Us in Los Angeles), “We spent hours FaceTiming each other,” she said. “We fell in love before we’d even really held hands or kissed or anything. It was great.”
And the bride always dreamed of a laid-back wedding.
“We are both pretty quiet, private people,” she said. “I never imagined myself with some beautiful dress in front of 300 people. It will be quiet and private — just for us.”
Of their relationship, the actress said, “I feel incredibly understood and supported. I feel incredibly lucky to have somebody who is like, ‘I got your back.’ I found the right person and I feel like we can handle anything together.”
This is Moore’s second marriage.
