“Breaking Bad” Star Marries, Has Carnival-Themed ReceptionBy: Amanda Crum - May 28, 2013
“Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul tied the knot over the weekend, and if you were hoping for some blue rock candy in lieu of a cake, you’ll be disappointed.
The reception was on the theme of a ’20s carnival, complete with a ferris wheel and other rides, burlesque dancers, an antique photo booth, and David Blaine doing magic tricks for the guests. The men in the wedding party wore top hats and bow ties, and the bride–Lauren Parsekian–and her attendants looked lovely in white vintage-style gowns with strings of pearls.
The celebrity couple did their day right, and even managed to get buddy John Mayer to sing a few tunes; he performed “Daughter” during the bride’s first dance with her father.
Paul has always spoken extremely highly of his new bride and credits her with some of his success; in a GQ interview, he said that she is “the greatest woman that has ever existed. No offense to other women on this planet, but she is hands down the best.” He also thanked her in his Emmy acceptance speech last year, and said that when he met her, he knew she was the one.
“You know when people say, ‘When you know, you know’? It was crazy,” he said in an interview. “I couldn’t imagine myself being without her. … I was like, ‘Wait, can this actually exist?'”
“Breaking Bad” resumes this summer for one last season and there’s no doubt it will go out with a bang. The actor, who plays “Jesse Pinkman” on the hugely popular AMC show, is riding high on success and the beginning of a new life with his woman, but it’s sure to be a bittersweet year as he says goodbye to the show that made him famous.
