Talk about a picture-perfect Sunday.
Newlyweds Reese Witherspoon
and Jim Toth attended Easter services yesterday with Witherspoon's two children, Ava and Deacon, and then enjoyed an Easter Sunday brunch at Ivy at the Shore in Santa Monica.
Everyone was dressed in their Sunday best – the actress, 35, in a simple cream dress and cardigan; Toth, 40, in a white polo and slacks; Ava, 11, in a floral dress and cardigan; and Deacon, 7, sporting a blazer.
The happy family – who returned two weeks ago from a group honeymoon
in Belize, following the couple's March 26 wedding
– were seated right in the middle of the busy restaurant at first, but soon moved tables to a more private spot in the back room.
Toth sat next to Ava, sweetly going over the menu with her and chatting, while Witherspoon sat on Ava's other side talking with Deacon. The foursome waited for friends to join them and sat happily discussing the day.
Witherspoon sipped a champagne and strawberry cocktail and ordered pizzas for the kids and the group to start with.
At one point, Toth got up from the table and went over to his new wife and leaned down to give her a sweet kiss. They couldn't have looked happier and more relaxed as they enjoyed their afternoon together.
