Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill’s Wedding: Peek at the Decor

After saying “I do” on October 10, Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill had the most lavish setup to celebrate with their loved ones. 

As seen in photos and videos posted to Instagram from the big day, The Real Housewives of Atlanta couple’s reception held at the Governors Towne Club in Acworth, Georgia, featured jaw-dropping details including luxe candles, gorgeous chandeliers, and a silver balloon display adorning a grand staircase where guests including Eva Marcille, Kenya Moore and Quad Webb posed for photos. 

Of course, there was no shortage of places for a photo op throughout the night. In addition to a photo booth, guests gathered in front of a stunning floor-to-ceiling white flower wall featuring the couple’s custom logo, an intertwined “C” and “M.” Hundreds of flowers were placed in different areas around the venue, including a vibrant floral arrangement decorating a prop tub as part of a custom Seagram’s Escapes drink display.  

The blue carpeted dance floor, where Mike and Cynthia spent plenty of time throughout the evening, was covered in social distancing dots. “Usually, my concern before the wedding would be more focused on a lot of the aesthetics of the wedding. However, because we are getting married in a pandemic, the focus has turned to: Do we have the thermometers for the temperature checks? Do we have sanitizer stations?” Cynthia told PEOPLE prior to the big day. “We aren’t messing around.” 

In addition to spacing out seating and hiring a team to deep clean the venue, Cynthia told PEOPLE that she and Mike would require guests to sign a COVID-19 waiver and undergo temperature checks. In an interview with Extra, Cynthia shared that they would also be “enforcing masks and face shields.”

Get a Peek Inside Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s New Champagne House in France

Maison de Champagne Fleur de Miraval

Set amid the low rolling hills of Champagne, the small French village of Mesnil-sur-Oger has increased its population of 1,127 by one: Brad Pitt.

The actor will release the first bottles of his new Fleur de Miraval champagne—a business endeavor he entered into and continues to operate with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie—this Thursday, and PEOPLE can exclusively reveal a sneak peek at his new champagne house in the village!

While the exact location is being kept private, it is no secret why Pitt chose Mesnil. Registered as a Grand Cru, its delimited 2,000 acres are among the most prized in Champagne. Chardonnay, as they say in France, is king and Mesnil’s parcels — home to marques such as Launay, Peters and Krug — are among the highest valued agricultural fields in the world.

Krug, for example, is located in the center of town and keeps its house and 4-acre parcel guarded behind high walls and iron gates.

Fleur de Miraval’s new home is a large, whitewashed building near the village center, discreetly indicated by only one black lettered wall sign. Inside the space is tranquil with much emphasis on light and French oak.

“It’s close to the house of the Peters family”, who are partners in the business, explains one local.

Though public visits are currently unavailable, they will eventually be available by prior appointment.

Partnering with the Peters family, owners of 45 acres in Mesnil, and the Perrin family, Pitt’s longtime partners in winemaking, the actor has engaged in a five-year long project to create a world-class rosé champagne. The process is laborious, requiring several years of experimentation, before three more aging in cellars.

After an advance tasting last week, wine professional Andreas Larsson posted an Instagram post  reviewing “the Champagne that everybody talked about, but no one has tasted yet.”

“A ground-breaking style,” Larsson, who was selected the World’s Best Sommelier in 2007, continued praising the champagne for its “notion of youthful red fruity freshness.”

“It shows a very gentle bright rosé color and a vivid mousse with fine bubbles. The nose starts out elegantly – layered and nuanced with chalky notes, fresh hazelnut, marzipan, fresh butter, pink citrus and lemongrass.” The Pinot Noir grapes, which offer the wine its distinctive pink shade, impart an aroma of crushed raspberry, cherry and gingerbread, according to Larsson.

Describing, “great flavor intensity,” he rates the wine 95/100, placing it one of the three top champagnes he has encountered in his career.

“For me champagne conjures up feelings of celebration, quality, prestige and luxury,” Pitt told PEOPLE in August. “But rosé champagne is still relatively unknown. Backed by our success with Miraval in Provence, I wanted to try to create the defining brand of rosé Champagne, focusing all our efforts on just this one color.”

The warm colors complement the rest of Hadid’s apartment decor, which can be seen in the Instagram post below that Hadid shared in July. She wrote at the time, “Spent all of last year designing and curating my passion project / dream spot. Of course it all came together right before quarantining out of the city…. but I’m excited for the time I’ll get to spend enjoying all the special corners that were made with a lil help from some of my favorite creatives (tap!) who embraced my ideas and didn’t call me crazy. 💛 ++ my mamma:) who is the greatest homemaking-sounding-board I could ask for (she called me crazy when required) ☺️ grateful to and for all.”

E! got details on how Hadid’s first days with her and Zayn Malik’s daughter have been in New York City. Hadid welcomed her daughter a week ago. “Gigi is on a high and can’t believe they created an angel,” E!’s source said. “She’s truly so in love and has had many emotional moments while holding her baby girl.”

The source added that Hadid’s mom Yolanda has been staying with the couple and helping them day and night. “She is planning on staying with them for a while and they all want to head back to the farm [in Pennsylvania] at some point,” the source said.

Sneak a Peek at Kate Middleton & Prince William in the Kitchen Together

Kate Middleton and Prince William are quite the pair in the kitchen! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to a famous East London bakery, Beigel Bake, in an effort to highlight businesses supporting their local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a video shared to Instagram Wednesday, William and Kate can be seen wearing red aprons while donning face masks helping the bagel shop with their morning routine.

Beigel Bake, opened in 1977, is a family-run business serving thousands of bagels every day. Before the pandemic, the bakery was open 24-hours — but after having to furlough many of its employees had to cut back the shop’s hours of operation.

The co-owner of the Brick Lane eatery, Amnon Cohen, told the Jewish Chronicle that the royal couple was really nice and that they weren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. And Amnon’s son, who also works at the bakery added: “they were very informal, colloquial speaking which was great to see and it was nice to see them out and about.”

The Duke and Duchess appeared to have a real knack for bagel-making. “They were really good,” Cohen’s son continued. They had a light touch.” One of the employees even joked, “you’re after my job.” According to the JC, the bakery was forced to furlough most of its staff earlier in the pandemic after reducing opening hours, but months later, more than half of workers are back.

And the bagel shop was very appreciative of the royals’ help. “We can’t thank @kensingtonroyal enough for their gratitude,” involvement and kindness. We feel truly blessed by all the support during COVID-19 and happy we can provide that Beigel fix ‼️”
