Los Angeles, CA (FV Newswire) - Rodney star, Jennifer Aspen, and her longtime beau, David O’Donnell, were married Saturday at actress Anne Archer’s home.
It's the first marriage for both Aspen and O’Donnell, also an actor, who have been together for nine years.
Clutching a famed Mark’s Garden bouquet, the vision-in-ivory made her way down the aisle in a Junko Yoshioka for Bonaparte-NY dress, Cynthia Rowley shoes and jewelry by Matthew’s in Studio City.
The Scientology ceremony was held in front of 55 friends and family including Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg), Catherine Bell (JAG), Giovanni Ribisi (Saving Private Ryan), Sky Dayton (CEO of Helio) and, of course, Anne Archer herself (Patriot Games). The reception found the happy couple in the garden mingling with guests while munching on taquitos from Tony’s Mexican Grill and tasting their Mani’s Bakery wedding cake.
Aspen, 32, who first caught the spotlight eight years ago as Daphne in television’s Party of Five, will be appearing in the upcoming film Mr. Woodcock (with Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott and Susan Sarandon) and the independent feature Guy in Row Five, both set for release late this fall.
With the help of her uber-organized Mother, Aspen planned and carried out the entire wedding herself in just five weeks’ time.
“I have come to the conclusion that marriage is a wonderful thing,” said Aspen, “and that I should have done it sooner. It has made my relationship with David even better. We’ve been having so much fun!”
The couple will enjoy their honeymoon at the Ritz Carlton in picturesque Laguna Beach.
