In an interview with UsWeekly, a wedding guest described the event as quite the spectacle. “There was a singer from Iceland, Brazilian dancers and a standee for My Big Fat Chilean Wedding that everyone posed with! At midnight, roast lamb was served and people drank and danced until 4 A.M.,” the source said.

Izzo and Roth seem to be taking their separation in stride and portraying both their relationship and the split in a positive light. The Instagram post was upbeat and hinted that their divorce is the end of their marriage, but not the end of their friendship or creative partnership.
