For Molly Tarlov, one of the sweetest parts of her wedding day—besides, you know, getting married—was all of the food.

“When it’s your wedding you basically get to pick your dream meal and actually eat it!” the star of MTV’s Awkward tells PEOPLE. “Plus I hadn’t eaten bread in a while, so it was great to dive into some sourdough.”

Tarlov, who tied the knot to Honor Society drummer, Alexander Noyes, at Palm Springs’ Colony 29 on Saturday, served up a variety of light bites and family-style entrees for her guests. To start, passed hors d’oeuvres like tuna tartar, wild mushroom flatbreads, french dip sliders and veggie spring rolls made the rounds from Cottura Catering.

For the main event, guests served themselves elevated classics like beef tenderloin with chimichurri sauce, roasted chicken with olive nage, and seabass with heirloom tomatoes.

And, of course, there must be dessert—but don’t expect your typical white wedding cake. Tarlov and Noyes’ cake, designed by Molly herself and crafted by Art de Gelatin, was made of pear-flavored gelatin, with pink condensed milk-based gelatin roses suspended throughout it.

“I was nervous about going with the Jell-O cake instead of the Blue Velvet we had planned but we just jumped in,” she says. “My friend Bonnie McKee had gotten one from her boyfriend on her birthday and we totally jacked her idea.”

And despite all the work that went into the planning, Tarlov says she wouldn’t have it any other way. “I couldn’t believe we put ourselves through all this stress when we could’ve gone to the courthouse and gotten a pizza! But it was all worth it, of course.”

IN THE DETAILS

Molly says she tried on "approximately 1,000" dresses before deciding to go custom. "Women have so many different facets I think it's hard to pin down one style to stand up in front of everyone and marry the love of your life. But I finally got there and I knew it was perfect because I made it up!"

She also loved that the neckline showed off the necklace given to her by her husband-to-be that same day, and layered with her Leenabell necklaces featuring his name and initial. "My 'something old' was the earrings my dad gave my mom at their wedding. Something new was the heart-shaped diamond necklace my husband surprised me with during the first look. A couple weeks ago he said 'I'm gonna get you a heart shaped diamond one day,' and then he pulled it out during our first look, so that day was March 4, 2017! I definitely wasn't expecting it so soon and I can't wait to wear it forever. On a yellow gold chain of course!" she says. "Something borrowed was a beaded clutch my mom lent me me and my something blue was the fairy dust on my nails and my powder-blue Chanel shoes I changed into halfway through the reception ... also my husband's eyes!"
