He”s a famous funnyman, but Robin Williams”s weekend wedding to graphic designer Susan Schneider struck an emotional chord among the 130 guests, who included Billy Crystal and directors George Lucas and Barry Levinson.
The couple exchanged vows last Saturday afternoon at Meadowland Resort in California”s Napa Valley in a non-denominational ceremony held outdoors in glorious weather.
“It was a very intimate gathering of people who have worked with him, who know him really well, and her close friends and family,” a source tells us. “It was very relaxed and truly a joyful celebration. It just felt good to be there.”
The Rev. Peadar Dalton, of the Bay Area company Your Ceremony Matters, officiated at the ceremony, in which he mentioned the names of the relatives of the couple who had passed away, including Williams”s parents and brother. The final blessing was the Prayer of St. Francis.
Another source tells us, “There were tears among many people present during the ceremony.”
Walked down the aisle by her father, the bride wore a strapless ivory and blush-colored wedding gown with a train. The groom wore a tuxedo. During the 25-minute ceremony, the couple recited vows they wrote themselves.
The ceremony was followed by a sit-down dinner and dancing, with music from husband-and-wife deejays Denon and Doyle of San Francisco.
Williams, 60, and his new bride then honeymooned in Paris.
