VOGUE – Actor Billie Lourd—who is known for her roles in Scream Queens, American Horror Story, and Booksmart as well as for being the daughter of actor Carrie Fisher and power agent Bryan Lourd, not to mention the only grandchild of Hollywood royalty Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher—met producer Austen Rydell back in January of 2011 while they were both attending NYU. Austen proposed in June of 2020 (according to his Instagram engagement announcement, Billie said “duh!” instead of “yes” when he popped the question), and their son, Kingston Fisher Lourd Rydell, was born in September.
The couple’s wedding took place this past weekend in Cabo San Lucas, and the two worked with planner Mark Seed to bring their vision to life. Festivities kicked off with a floral-Friday-themed rehearsal dinner. “I am a little bit of a procrastinator, so I didn’t start looking for my rehearsal-dinner dress until late January,” Billie admits. “I’ve always loved Oscar de la Renta’s floral designs, so I went to the store to find a white floral gown. When I arrived, they asked me when my wedding was, and I confidently replied, ‘March!’ They looked at me quizzically and said, ‘2023?’ I didn’t realize people started planning for this whole wedding thing over a year in advance and awkwardly smiled, ‘2022…’ The saleswoman smiled and told me most of their dresses are custom and take at least six months to make, but she would see if they happened to have anything in stock in my size. She went in the back and then came out with my absolute dream floral-Friday dress—a floor-length gown with flowers delicately embroidered all over it. I hit the jackpot. I decided to hem it short in the front and long in the back, and it turned out incredible.”
