Mandy Moore's Wedding Details

Moore and Goldsmith married in a backyard wedding ceremony on November 18, 2018. The couple's wedding designer transformed the outdoor space with a dreamy display of lush pampas grass, wheat sheaves, roses, and a textured, all-pink baby's breath arbor. Rugs lined the aisle for a bohemian effect, though the color palette was well-orchestrated with pops of pink and neutrals enhanced by the natural environment. 

For the ceremony, Moore wore a custom, Swiss polka dot frock in pink designed by the Rodarte sisters and paired with a baby's breath clustered hairstyle. The overall concept was styled by Moore's close friend Cristina Ehrlich, who honored the bride with a sweet message the day of the wedding. "The craft, artistry, and love that went into the making the most special dress, for an angel, a client and dear friend…" Ehrlich wrote.

Guests included the likes of Minka Kelly and other famous A-listers, all of whom were treated to a reception at the Fig House in Highland Park. The soiree included 12 different types of cake options, a whiskey bar, and a special performance by musically-inclined spouses Moore and Goldsmith. Following the wedding, Moore joked on Instagram: "Well, that was fun."


How They Met

Moore was newly single after divorcing rocker Ryan Adams when she met her soulmate. Moore happened to be a fan of her husband's indie band, so she shared an image of their album in 2015. Somehow, it caught Goldsmith's attention and he made the first move. 

"Somehow, Taylor saw it and sent a note to me," Moore told People. "We started emailing back and forth, then we went on a date and the rest is history."
