Beanie Feldstein and Bonnie-Chance Roberts Are Married: “The Most Profound Moment of Our Lives”
Beanie Feldstein is married! On Thursday, Vogue confirmed the actor had tied the knot with her longtime partner, Bonnie-Chance Roberts, on May 19 at Cedar Lakes Estate in Upstate New York.
“It is our happy place together,” Feldstein told the publication. “I grew up going to summer camp for ten years, and my parents and both sets of my grandparents met at summer camp, so camp is a lineage of love through the generations of my family. Even though we met in London and fell in love on a film set, to get married at a camp was a truly beautiful emotional homecoming.”
Of their wedding weekend, Feldstein said, “On Friday night, we wanted to take our guests on a true camp experience with bandana tablecloths and s’mores for dessert, with pennant banners and friendship bracelets: a true ‘We’re at summer camp’ feeling.” She added: “Then, we really wanted to surprise guests when they entered the barn for the reception. We wanted it to feel unexpectedly elevated and romantic and like nothing they had seen.”
The ceremony took place on Saturday outside by a lake. “It had been our vision for two years, and we just were not willing to let it go,” Feldstein said, referring to the fact that the weather had been bad all week. “It rained pretty hard leading up to the ceremony, but as we were about to walk down the aisle, the sun came out briefly.”
Feldstein and Roberts both wrote their own vows for their ceremony, and they recited them to each other in front of their friends and family. “Reading them for the first time to each other surrounded by everyone we love was the most profound moment of our lives,” Feldstein said. “It made it feel like truly there was nothing else in the world except for all of us there beneath the trees. It was genuinely the most magical, awe-inspiring moment of our lives.”
Roberts added: “To see our two worlds, American and British, sitting together under the damp trees, getting to listen to our friends and family read their personal blessings for us, a take on the Jewish tradition of the Seven Blessings, and then to hear Charles articulate our relationship in the same exact way we do, while the fog rolled in. It is no surprise that both of our vows referenced magic, because for that time, magic was present.”
Feldstein and Roberts’s romance dates back to 2018 when the pair first met on the set of “How to Build a Girl” in the UK. Roberts was a producer on the movie, which Feldstein stars in. Prior to meeting Roberts, Feldstein confessed to Teen Vogue, she wasn’t the relationship type. “It just wasn’t something I thought about or craved,” she admitted at the time. Then along came Roberts, and she said to herself, “Whoa! Now I get it . . . I get why people write songs.”
She explained to Teen Vogue, “Not to sound flippant, but I was in love with her and all of her, and she’s a woman. That’s not scaring me or deterring me. And it wasn’t just women in general; it was her specifically.”
In June 2022, Feldstein and Roberts got engaged. The “Booksmart” actor announced the news on Instagram, sharing photos from Roberts’s proposal with the caption, “i do, bon.” Roberts proposed to Feldstein with a unique engagement ring that features a flower, with one large, central diamond surrounded by 14 smaller teardrop stones that resemble petals, all set on yellow gold.
“Bonnie told me that she wanted to create the most special ring possible. Something that was kind of vintage inspired in aesthetic and really one of a kind, like a rare flower in bloom,” Feldstein explained during a June 27 appearance on “Late Night With Seth Meyers.” London-based jeweler Michelle Oh custom-designed Feldstein’s ring.
