Well, and that wasn't the only big name at the wedding, as Questlove attended as both a visitor and a DJ. Don’t believe us?? Take a look at the picture evidence for yourself (below). Since being 15 years old, I have admired, adored, and respected this enchanting human being. Last night, she ably officiated my wedding, impressing those who weren't already a huge fan of hers and deciding she is now their new favorite celebrity. Martha, how can I express my love and appreciation to you for every minute of your love and kindness that you gave to us. Thank you so much for your generous gift. And your brotherhood and sisterhood. I adore you. #family @marthaplimptonA post shared by Meredith Salenger (@meredithsalenger) on Nov 5, 2017 at 9:33am PST
