Assessing George Clooney’s weekend of wedding attire

If Kanye West's Givenchy-swaddled wedding in Mayand Johannes Huebl's in June hadn't already made this a vintage year for groom-related style, George Clooneyhas just cemented it.

This weekend in Venice, at a ceremony that was so ballsy even using the word "lavish" doesn't seem lavish enough, the role model for bachelors everywhere tied the knot to his impossibly beautiful fiancée, human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin. And, in doing so, raised the bar on how every betrothed man should dress for not only the biggest day of his life, but also the fairly important other days either side.

We're not going to lie, Clooney's casual game is usually a pretty hit and miss affair, but his first get-up was pretty darn stylish. Usually a student of the baggy chinos and zip-up hoodies school of downtime dressing, the actor got things spot-on in Venice for his last night of freedom by doing double denim the right way.

If you're going to wear a chambray shirt with your jeans, take this as proof that the way to pull it off is to mix up your washes. Of course the more straghtforward your get-up, the more your accessories will shine - as proven by the actor's choice of a blue-faced, steel-braceleted Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra (£3,490.omegawatches.com) and a pair of Persol shades - essential for not only protecting from the blazing sun during the day, but also to conceal any bloodshot eyes that might occur later at the Stag if those Limoncello shots get out of hand.

Getty ImagesWhen it came to the wedding itself Clooney did the sensible thing - kept things smooth and simple. His evening suit, made by his good friend Giorgio Armani, was excellently executed in both fit and in the accessories department: we're especially enjoying those see-through shirt studs.

However we also clocked his slick wristwear: the beautiful, black tie-appropriate and as-yet-unreleased Omega De Ville Tresor in white gold (£9,490.omegawatches.com) which we previewed at Baselworldearlier this year - and will be landing at the watchmaker's outposts from this week.

Long story short, it's an outfit that ensured he looked great, but also still guarantees that the guests notice the bride first - let's face it, it's still her day first and foremost, as any husband will tell you.

Rex FeaturesClooney's parting shot the day after was anotherArmani number - a well-tailored grey two-piece with a slight sun-reflecting sheen, worn with brown Oxfords, a white shirt, dark grey tie and his Persols. In other words, classic leading man attire that he'll look back on in years to come and just think, "Damn, didn't I look good?" Some might say it's a little formal for heading off on your honeymoon, but come on, he's George f***ing Clooney.

Jeremy Renner Secretly Marries Sonni Pacheco; Debuts His Wedding Ring

It's apparently not Mission: Impossible to pull off a secret wedding in Hollywood.

Jeremy Renner, 43, has revealed that he quietly married Canadian model Sonni Pacheco, who's the mother of his 17-month-old daughter, Ava Berlin. Then on Tuesday, the Kill the Messenger actor flashed his wedding ring at a movie screening in Washington, D.C.

In an interview with Capitol File, he responded "Yes" and flashed a smile when asked if he's married to Pacheco, but provided no details about the nuptials, saying only, "I have tried to protect my family's privacy, my wife's privacy. I don't need her to get hammered with my life. Privacy issues are important because I want her to go about her day without being bothered."

He said he kept his marriage news a secret because he feels hounded by paparazzi when he's out with Pacheco and baby Ava.

"Paps follow me, [and] that's fine. But it's annoying being followed when I'm with my family," he said. "It's not just me — everyone [in Hollywood] has to deal with that. I've been talked about a whole lot, because the less I put out there, the less people know, and it makes it interesting, I assume."

In the same interview, he went on to talk about fatherhood, which he described as "the greatest."

"It's the best thing I have ever done — doing it later on in life. By then I achieved a lot of things that I wanted to achieve; I'm so blessed for that," the two-time Oscar nominee said. "Now I can really spend time with family. The only thing I think about when I'm not with my baby is, 'How do I get to my baby?' I need to get to her, and I'm very miserable when I don't see her. I really love being a father. The only that has changed is my perspective on things. I still work, probably even more. It used to be all for myself so I'm not old and broke. All these things I still do, but I do it now for the future of my baby, and if it gets in the way of her well-being, then I stop. I can't wait for her to get older, but I really enjoy her now."

And it looks like little Ava may have to wait until she's older to tie the knot like her father. "As a father, I'm going to make it very difficult for her to find a man," he quipped.

Renner's love life has been the target of rumors over the years. In 2011, however, he candidly admitted that with his professional career thriving, he was looking for a woman to settle down with.

"There've been a handful of girls over the last years. But it's been very difficult. How does it go any further?" he told Details. "I have a wonderful life, but it means nothing if it cannot be shared. That's all I'm missing right now. It's a little unbalanced for me. Right now the only thing consistent in my life is that little dog. That's why I got it. I was getting really lonely. I needed somebody or something to be there with me through the whole journey."

Well, it looks like he found that special someone.

Sultan couple enjoys roller coaster wedding

When Sultan resident Holly Shelvock entered Star 101.5 FM’s contest to win a roller coaster wedding, she didn’t imagine in a million years that she would win. She didn’t even mention it to her significant other, Sean Schuhrieman.

And then on Thursday, Sept. 4, she had to mention it, because she learned that they were in the top five. And even then, Shelvock still didn’t think they would actually win. Neither did Schuhrieman.

“At first, I didn’t know what to think,” said Schuhrieman. “She told me, ‘So by the way, I entered us into this contest. We’re one of five, but we probably won’t win so don’t worry about it.’ I didn’t put much thought into it after that.”

But on Friday, Sept. 5, the radio station contacted her at work to inform her that she and her significant other had officially won the Washington State Fair Roller Coaster Wedding Contest. The contest awarded them an all-expense-paid wedding including jewelry, tuxedo rentals, a reception at the fair with scones and a three-tiered custom wedding cake, fresh-cut flowers and wedding night accommodations at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Puyallup.

And when Shelvock told Schuhrieman that they had won, he didn’t hesitate, quite literally, to go along for the ride.

Shelvock and Schuhrieman live in Sultan with their two sons, 6-year-old Gavin, and Declan, who is three. They met while serving in the United States Navy and have been together for 10 years. The couple explained that they always meant to get married, but just hadn’t found the right opportunity.

“We were just really happy together,” said Schuhrieman. “We always talked about doing it, but life took over and we just hadn’t had the chance.”

The contest turned out to the perfect solution. Star 101.5 FM provided them everything needed for their wedding; one of the only stipulations was that they had to act fast. The marriage license needed to be obtained right away.

“We literally went from zero to 60 on the marriage license,” said Schuhrieman.

The couple had a total of 10 days to make all the arrangements, most of which were facilitated by the radio station. They were given the opportunity to choose their wedding colors, which were incorporated into both the tuxedos and the flower arrangements, and were asked to choose the flavors for their wedding cake. Additionally, Shelvock got to select an engagement set.

“That’s when I actually realized it was real,” said Schuhrieman. “They pulled out three rings for her and it was amazing.”

When choosing their colors, the couple decided to have some fun and go with a Seahawks-theme. The Tux shop added Seahawks-blue ties and bowties along with green vests, and the bouquets and boutonnieres were festooned green and blue blossoms. The cake was Seahawks-themed, as was Shelvock’s manicure.

As for the wedding dress, Shelvock had that taken care of, except for the fact that her dress needed a minor alteration. Fortunately, once she explained her situation, Hill Street Cleaners in Monroe was happy to oblige.

“They did it in two days and didn’t charge me an expedite fee or anything,” said Shelvock. “They were so great.”

It was a whirlwind 10 days, shared Shelvock, but by Sunday, Sept. 14, everything was ready. The couple then prepared to meet the other stipulation of the contest; they had to get married early. The ceremony was set to take place at approximately 7:15 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 15. The couple arrived at the fairgrounds at 6 a.m., and after that it was a scramble of radio interviews, getting dressed, getting their children dressed, and hair and makeup for Shelvock.

Shelvock wasn’t sure their friends would be willing to come to the fair on a Monday at 7 in the morning, but to her surprise, they were more than happy to be there.

“That was just really kind of a great feeling too; you know, everybody was there to be supportive,” said Shelvock. “It was really nice how many true friends and family that we have that were willing to just come out and hang out with us for a few hours in the morning. And really early.”

Shortly after 7, the couple piled onto the roller coaster with Star 101.5 FM radio personality Kent, from the Kent and Alan Morning Show, a photographer, camera crew, several reporters and six or seven friends in the back. The vows were read as the roller coaster began its climb. Once they got to the top, it was time for Schuhrieman to kiss the bride.

The entire ceremony took one minute, 14 seconds.

“We literally started kissing as it started dropping down,” said Schuhrieman. “Once the ride was over we did the rings, and then we changed out some people and went again.”

After the roller coaster rides, the couple enjoyed their reception which had been completely set up for them. Flowers, their Seahawks cake, and a dozen famous fair scones were provided for them and their guests.

Shelvock and Schuhrieman are grateful to Star 101.5 FM and the Washington State Fair for making their wedding such a great experience. The rings were provided by Chippers Jewelry in Bonney Lake; tuxedo rentals were provided by the Tux Shop; and the cake was created by Morfey’s Cakes in Seattle. Their Seahawks-themed flowers were provided by Blooms at the Windmill Inn in Sumner.

“It happened so quickly I was just in shock pretty much up until the day of,” said Shelvock. “I’m still kind of in shock. It was just crazy; it was so much fun.”

Next, they will travel to California for a mini-honeymoon, also provided by Star 101.5 FM. The newlyweds will have the opportunity to attend a musical performance by Echosmith, an indie pop band composed of four siblings.

Shelvock stated that the roller coaster wedding suited them perfectly, and they are looking forward to their spur-of-the-moment honeymoon.

“That’s kind of how we are,” said Shelvock. “We’re not traditional; we’re kind of wild and crazy.”
