‘Wedding Bells’ and whistles

Fox celebrates new Kelley series

HOLLYWOOD — Love was in the air, or at least in the decorations, at the series premiere party for Fox’s dramedy, “The Wedding Bells,” Friday at the Wilshire Ebell Theater.

A faux bride and groom welcomed guests into the wedding-themed party, which was complete with cake, presents, a photo booth and — voila — wedding singer. Fox thought of every little detail. The only thing that appeared to be missing was the embarrassing drunk relative on the dance floor.

Even the show’s creator and executive producer, David E. Kelley, felt the evening’s decor was pretty convincing. “This reminds me of a typical wedding,” he said. “You sit at tables and hope the bride shows up.”

The series revolves around a family-owned wedding planning business and Kelley, who is leaving the world of defensive attorneys and judges in favor of flower girls and brides, said it is a fun venue to explore. “It is a familiar one and an inviting one. People at the end of a long week can sit back and go to a wedding.”
