Every wedding has one signature, stand-out moment that makes it memorable. That means not just memorable for the bride and groom, but something that makes it stand out to the guests for years to come. For example, the bland buffet-line chicken? Not memorable. Catering by a taco truck? Memorable! Sometimes, that memorable spark is a sweet moment that makes you tear up, like a dad's loving toast to his little girl. Other times, it's a moment of humor, like the couple's fat bulldog waddling down the aisle as the ring bearer. Or it can be a crazy, over-the-top moment, like a fireworks display at midnight or the groom doing a choreographed moonwalk with all his groomsmen across the dance floor.
Of course, celebrities's normal lives tend to be pretty lavish and outrageous, so it's no surprise their weddings would be too. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's ceremony officiated by Elton John or Deepak Chopra? Angelina Jolie's custom Versace wedding dress decorated with kids' drawings she wore to (finally) wed Brad Pitt? Dinner at a 230-foot-long marble table à la Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Florence nuptials? Stealthy weddings plans designed to shake the paparazzi that are so secretive the guests don't even know they're attending a wedding? Those are just some of the things Hollywood's A-list newlyweds planned in 2014, not to mention the memorable moments they didn't plan, like wild storms that almost blew the entire wedding off-course.
