Actor Beanie Feldstein and producer Bonnie Chance-Roberts celebrated their wedding in the Hudson Valley on May 19 and 20 in the most camp way possible: With a full summer camp-themed extravaganza, complete with an actual summer camp setting.
“It is our happy place together,” Feldstein told Vogue. “I grew up going to summer camp for 10 years, and my parents and both sets of my grandparents met at summer camp, so camp is a lineage of love through the generations of my family. Even though we met in London and fell in love on a film set, to get married at a camp was a truly beautiful emotional homecoming.”
The two met when Feldstein auditioned for How to Build a Girl, of which Chance-Roberts is a producer. Feldstein got the part, and the two fell in love over the course of filming. In a fitting full-circle moment, writer Caitlin Moran, upon whose work the movie is based, gave a toast at the wedding weekend.
The pair used all-female vendors for an extremely personal celebration, complete with bandana napkins embroidered with meaningful song lyrics, personalized pins and knick-knacks for guests, and personalized friendship bracelets at each table setting. Obviously, there were also s’mores. Please, this isn’t amateur hour.
The two were married by a friend in a celebration they described as “Jew-ish,” and pal Ben Platt sang “Something In the Way She Moves” for their first dance. Sarah Paulson and Kaitlyn Dever were also among the couple’s bridespeople.
And for this celebration, naturally, one bowtie simply isn’t enough: Chance-Roberts had three different bowties throughout her wedding day to coordinate with her Gucci ensemble. One for the ceremony (white), one for the reception (pink), and an “extra-big boy for the afterparty,” she said.
“From the moment we first kissed, we both knew we would get married and months after that, Bon had announced that when the time came, she wanted to be the one to propose to me,” Feldstein said. “Because of the pandemic, we were not able to see each other in person for 13 months.”
There was one thing at the wedding that definitely wouldn’t be found on a mess hall menu: Their wedding cake, vanilla with latte-flavored filling and vanilla frosting—and gluten-free and dairy-free.
“Cake is deeply important to me,” Feldstein said.
