She knew she would marry Pratt — and the eloped for a reason
Almost right away. “When we finally got together, it was hot and heavy in a way that I’d never experienced before,” she writes. “You might think that, fresh off an almost decade long relationship, I would be hesitant to move on to the next, but I couldn’t have fallen more headfirst into my feelings for Chris.”
Just months into dating — “It was laughter all the time” — Pratt went on a backpacking trip to Europe with his Everwood costars. On a train to Prague, he called and “said, ‘I just love you so much. I just want to marry you,'” recalls Faris.
In 2009, while in Bali for a friend’s vows, they decided to wed. “It was a gorgeous ceremony that was just the two of us,” she writes. “We had already told our parents that we were probably going to elope, and we’d promised them that we would have a party at home, too.”
That 70-person party, where her dad officiated the ceremony, was just the reason why the went off on their own. “There was some minor drama,” jokes Faris. “Just my cousins getting in a fistfight on the dance floor, and some of Chris’s friends bringing strippers as dates, and then a girlfriend of one of Chris’s friends accusing me of hitting on her boyfriend. On my wedding day. Your average wedding hoopla. Who wouldn’t want that?”Back to top
