Esther found her dream gown while shopping in Los Angeles. “My best friend Kim got me to try on a handful of the big ball gown style dresses for fun but I was sure I wanted something slim fitting and really chic,” Esther says. The pair was married at Terindah Estate with 87 guests, including Howard’s family from England. “The whole week leading up to it, the wedding day, and the days following it, with everyone in town together, was an amazing time that we will never forget,” she says.

Actress Esther Anderson and her love Howard Moggs were introduced at a Christmas party in 2014. She says even then, she knew Howard was the one for her. “We felt familiar to each other from the moment we met,” says Esther. Howard, who Esther describes as a romantic, surprised her with a proposal on Valentine’s Day. Esther walked down the aisle to a song she wrote especially for Howard. “It’s very personal and meaningful, all about Howard and I and our relationship,” says Esther. “Esther is as beautiful on the inside as on the outside,” says Howard. “I truly am the luckiest man in the world.”.
