The rich and famous are well known for spending large sums of money on their wedding receptions. They want to have them at lavish locations and in many instances they want to have them in secluded areas to keep them private. Their time in the spotlight may be well appreciated at times, but no so when they have just gotten married.
Of course the details often leak out to the public through the media. With the number of people that use the internet daily as well as programs on TV giving us the latest scoop on celebrities and the rich, the details usually are released the day after the event takes place. In many of these events though it is the publicist for the couple that release that information so that they can ensure it is accurate.
Due to their work schedules and the warm weather there, California seems to be one of the favorite locations for celebrity wedding receptions to take place. Some of them are right on the beach while others are in fascinating locations. For example the Ritz Carlton in Pasadena where Marcia Cross held hers. The Beverly Hills Hotel is also a prime location in California.
Jetting off to Hawaii is also very popular for the rich and the famous. Generally the wedding receptions there take place outdoors. However, it can be very hard to keep the location under wraps long enough for it to take place. They don’t want to have helicopters and other elements hovering over them when they are trying to enjoy such a wonderful event.
The private estates and land of other celebrities and the rich are also commonly used to host wedding receptions for the rich and the famous. It is perceived as an honor to have such an offer made to many couples. There is also a better chance that their event will be kept private as it needs to be in such a setting. The estates of Elvis Presley and of Johnny Cash are two places where people really enjoy hosting their wedding receptions.
Who can forget the wedding reception of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes? Both it and the wedding took place in the Odescalchi Castle. The Kinnitty Castle in Ireland has hosted a couple of wonderful wedding receptions as well. This is where Edele Lynch and Michael Barrett held their wedding reception.
Perhaps not as extravagant as a castle, but wonderful just the same is the Rialto Square in Joliet, Illinois. Christopher Knight and his bride had an amazing wedding reception here. They are just one couple of many rich and famous though that have found this location to be very inspiring to them.
There are some well known celebrities though that do what they can to make their wedding reception as down to Earth as possible. How about a good time with a BBQ? That is exactly what took place with Sandra Bullock and Jesse James. It is also what Julia Roberts did for her wedding. Both of these receptions took place in a fabulous backyard when people were speculating about all types of locations for them to be going on. Their menu had hot dogs, lemonade, and other traditional foods you would find with any group of people eating outdoors.
While most of us are in awe at these wonderful locations where the rich and famous host their wedding receptions, the money just isn’t’ there for most of us to do the same. Don’t let that get you down though as there is no shortage of wonderful places out there where you too can have the wedding reception of your dreams.
