At the start of the year, we had high expectations for celebrity weddings in 2020. Some of the biggest stars were slated to say "I do" this year (hi, J. Lo and A-Rod!) and even another royal wedding was in the works. But after the coronavirus pandemic hit in mid-March, the wonderful world of weddings took a turn.
While many couples have recently postponed their big days, some celebrities were able to tie the knot as planned earlier this year. Erin Foster and Simon Tikhman rang in the new decade with a New Year's Eve nuptials in Nashville. Not long after, football players Tim Tebow and J.J. Watt exchanged vows with Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Kealia Ohai, respectively.
2020 even gave us a small, but still every bit grand, royal wedding! With just a few more months left in the year, we predict plenty of other celebs will do the same.
We also have a feeling we're going to see a lot more celebrity elopements before 2021 rolls around—and we are so here for it! Ahead, every celebrity couple who wed in 2020...so far!
Erin Foster and Simon Tikhman
While Erin Foster and Simon Tikhman hosted a New Year's Eve nuptials in Nashville, Tennessee, we still consider it the first wedding of 2020 (after all, they did ring in the new year with all of their guests!). The couple exchanged vows under a floral covered chuppah during a Jewish wedding ceremony. Foster wore a silk gown with sheer sleeves down the aisle and later changed into a strapless dress for the reception. After their first dance, Tikhman surprised his bride with a choreographed flash mob that even included Foster's sister, Sara! Foster's stepmom Katharine McPhee serenaded the couple and Kate Hudson took a turn on the mic. Actor Jonah Hill even found himself behind the bar, mixing drinks for the bride herself!
Vanessa Morgan and Michael Kopech
Vanessa Morgan and Michael Kopech were the first couple to officially say "I do" in 2020, and their early January wedding did not disappoint. The Riverdale actress and baseball player exchanged vows at the Historic Walton House outside of Miami, Florida. From her Eisen-Stein beaded gown to the pampas grass decor and custom cocktails their wedding set the bar high for this year. Unfortunately, the pair has already filed for divorce. Yet, they do already have a baby on the way!
Tim Tebow and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters
Former football player Tim Tebow wed his former Miss Universe fiancée, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, in South African wine country in mid-January. The couple hosted a weekend full of wedding-related festivities, including a welcome cocktail party, rehearsal dinner and sunset ceremony. As the face of David's Bridal's Clean + Modern collection, the bride opted for a custom white gown from the label for her walk down the aisle.
Brandon Jenner and Cayley Stoker
On Jan. 21, Brandon Jenner wed his then-pregnant fiancée Cayley Stoker at the Santa Barbara Courthouse, according to People.

The couple welcomed twin sons the following month.

Frankie Muniz and Paige Price
While actor Frankie Muniz and his longtime girlfriend Paige Price eloped in October 2019, the couple hosted a formal wedding celebration on Feb. 21. "I always thought it was such a cliché for people to claim their wedding day as the best day of their life, like maybe it was something they had to say," he shared with People. "No, my wedding day was literally the best day of my life!"
Brittany Snow and Tyler Stanaland
In what was probably the last "normal" celebrity wedding before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, actress Brittany Snow wed fiancé Tyler Stanaland on March 14 in Malibu. The bride wore a Jonathan Simkhai gown and the couple tied the knot outside. A month before the wedding, Snow told People that she wanted her entire wedding day to be "low-key and not stuffy.“
Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell
On March 25, Bindi Irwin (the daughter of the late Steve Irwin) married Chandler Powell at the Australia Zoo. Due to coronavirus, the couple decided not to have any guests at their wedding. "This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe," she wrote on Instagram.

On August 11, the newlyweds announced they're expecting a child together!

Raven-Symoné and Miranda Maday
Raven-Symoné surprised us all when she shared her secret quarantine wedding to girlfriend Miranda Maday in June. The couple said "I do" in Symoné's backyard wearing coordinating jumpsuits. While details of the day are scarce, the newlyweds kept their guest list small. "Thank you to all those who helped and for those who understand why it was small during this time," she wrote on Instagram following the nuptials.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
After cancelling their original royal wedding plans for May, Princess Beatrice quietly tied the knot with fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on July 17. The royal nuptials were held at The Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor, a venue regularly visited by the Queen. The royal bride also wore one her grandmother's gowns down the aisle, a vintage Norman Hartnell creation from the sixties, and accessorized with the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara.

Later, family and friends celebrated the marriage in a carnival-inspired outdoor reception at Royal Lodge that included glamping and a bounce castle.
Noah Reid and Clare Stone
Actor Noah Reid got married both on-screen and off in 2020! On July 25, the Schitt's Creek actor Reid wed fellow actress Clare Stone on the shores of Lake Huron.

Comedian and actress Niecy Nash announced her surprise wedding to singer Jessica Betts on August 31, writing, "Mrs. Carol Denise Betts" along with #LoveWins on Instagram. Both the wedding and the Claws star's relationship with Betts came as a surprise to fans (Nash divorced her husband of 8 years in 2019), but the outdoor wedding looked stunning.
