This summer sure has been the season for celebrity weddings, hasn’t it? Twilight actress Ashley Greene wed Australian TV personality Paul Khoury in a romantic ceremony in San Jose, California on Friday. Nestled in a redwood forest, the couple made it legal in front of 120 guests, including Eiza Gonzalez and Josh Duhamel, Aaron and Lauren Paul, Zac Efron, Liam Hemsworth and Brittany Snow. Ashley’s Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson, was also in attendance.
Ashley and Paul have been dating since 2013. Paul popped the question in December of 2016, getting on one knee at the bottom of Bridal Veil Falls during a vacation to Australia and New Zealand. Ashley shared the video on Instagram, adding in the caption, “This is the most beautiful moment I could have ever hoped for. You’ve successfully made me the happiest, luckiest woman alive. I can’t wait to show you my unfaltering immeasurable love for the rest of our lives.”

A Brides magazine story detailing the day reported that the couple used wedding planner Mindy Weiss to create an unforgettable event keeping with their vision of “a dreamy woodland, inspired by the verdant nature of the venue’s surroundings.” To bring this vision to life, Mindy created a stunning floral ceremony arch that served as the backdrop for the ceremony. Ashley said it was “the perfect choice to represent the eternal and everlasting love that Paul and I were celebrating on our wedding day.”

The ceremony was officiated by the couple’s friend, Dave Osokow, who kept things light, cracking jokes during the ceremony. In keeping with the playful atmosphere, the couple employed an unusual way to choose who would recite their vows first.
