Breaking Dawn Wedding Movie Magic

For Twihards the Breaking Dawn wedding is a dream come true -- but for the cast and crew it was a total nightmare.

The Twilight wedding is as highly anticipated as the royal wedding -- but for the cast and crew it was simply a royal mess.

Peter Facinelli, who plays father of the groom Carlisle Cullen, says it took more than a little movie magic to make the dismal day look glorious.

"I wish that I could say it was this magical beautiful day, but we had a lot of rain and it was kind of muddy and there [were] tarps all over," Facinelli told Access Hollywood.

"Literally, there was a couple of extras where water just poured down and dumped on top of them," continued Peter, who recently told SheKnows he loves Edward and Jacob equally. "So, it was kind of a nightmare shooting it, but [the set] was so beautifully dressed and I know that you'll never see any of that behind the scenes stuff and it will look beautiful."

Elizabeth Reaser, who plays mother of the groom Esme Cullen, agreed.

"Very beautiful, it's supposed to be a dream wedding. They spent months and months and months putting this thing together. It's everything you'd want when getting married," she explained, acknowledging the harsh weather.

"It was raining and freezing and everybody was uncomfortable, but when we were rolling, it was the most beautiful moment," she said.

I'm thankful for Twilight. It gives Star Trek nerds soinehmtg to look down on. It lets guys know that women are as flawed as they are, just differently flawed. And it provides a model for young guys wanting to figure out women: Alpha A-hole.Plus the massive success of the movie and books puts the lie to feminism. What do women and girls really want? Edward Cullen. Even in fantasy, female audiences and readers will trade independence for the uber-hot dominant guy every time.
