It was a rather interesting guest list for Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s surprise nuptials this week. While many of their A-list friends were in attendance, there were two surprising omissions: Jennifer’s parents!
Jennifer’s mother, Nancy Dow Aniston, confirmed that she was not at the wedding. However, she didn’t seem to be upset about it, saying:
I think it’s wonderful! Anything I say about Jennifer is super supportive.”
Jennifer and Nancy have had their ups and downs: Jennifer has said in the past that her mother was “very critical” of her as well as “very unforgiving.” The two were even estranged for a few years after Nancy wrote a tell-all book about her famous daughter in 1999 called ‘From Mother To Daughter To Friends: A Memoir.’ However, Jen and Nancy reconciled a few years ago, so I’m surprised she wasn’t there. Neither was Jen’s father.
However, plenty of Jennifer’s and Justin’s friends were there. Courteney Cox was Jennifer’s maid of honor, while Scott Campbell (a tattoo artist who’s married to actress Lake Bell), was Justin’s best man. I’m especially glad to hear about Courteney: I haven’t seen those two hanging out in ages and wondered if they’d had some kind of falling out or just grown apart. Apparently neither is the case!
Guests included Lisa Kudrow, Chelsea Handler, Jason Bateman, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer, and Jimmy Kimmel (who also reportedly hosted Justin’s bachelor party).
Jennifer reportedly wore a casual, “flowy” white dress rather than a formal wedding gown. Sia performed ‘Chandelier’ and the newlyweds exchanged rings that Jennifer Meyer designed. It sounds like a beautiful wedding, doesn’t it?
