Lea Michele Married Her Fiancé Zandy Reich In An Intimate Cali Ceremony
You likely remember when Lea Michele first showed of her massive rock back in April 2018. Well, nearly one year after announcing her engagement via Instagram, Lea Michele married Zandy Reich, her boyfriend of two years, in an intimate ceremony in Napa, California, on Saturday evening.
On Sunday, the former Glee star shared the first photo from the wedding on Instagram, captioning it with the date (3/9/2019) and a heart emoji.
“We are so excited to be married and grateful to be surrounded by our friends and family,” the newlyweds told People. “And most of all, we’re so happy to spend the rest of our lives together.”
As always, Michele looked gorgeous, but this time, she was glowing with happiness. For her wedding dress, the bride went for a classic white silhouette. The ballgown had an extra-full skirt with tiered layers and strapless neckline with a draped bodice. The dress, she told People last year, was the first one she tried on: “I’m a very decisive person.” She wore her brunette hair in a low chignon, and finished the look with a long veil and simple drop earrings.
Michele told Brides in February that she took her time to decide what kind of vibe she wanted her wedding to have. “We’re really taking our time to make sure we’re really happy because we are from the east coast, but we live on the west coast,” she said. Turns out, the couple landed on a west coast wedding. The elegant venue was garnished with gorgeous white roses and lush greenery.
As for the star-studded guest list, according to People, the private ceremony was officiated by Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who has been a mentor to Michele for years. Also in attendance were Michele’s Glee costars Darren Criss (who she asked to perform at wedding), Jonathan Groff (who served as maid of honor), and Becca Tobin, as well as Scream Queens costar Emma Roberts.
