November 2008: Love at First Sight
For Emily and John, it was love at first sight when they met at a restaurant in 2008. "It's kind of a sad, lame story," the actress recalled on Late Night With Seth Meyers in 2018. "I was in a restaurant, he was in the restaurant. I was sitting with a mutual friend...and my friend Gray goes 'Oh my god, that's my friend John..' And that was it. He was sitting with our friend Justin Theroux, and he abandoned Justin and came over to us. He just stood there and made me laugh. I kind of [knew right away.]"
2008: A Bold First Date
It wasn't long after they met that the couple went on their first date...to a shooting range. "On our first date, I decided, 'I'm gonna really hit the gas and bring her to a gun range. I think that I was so sure that I would never end up with her...that I was like, 'You know what, I'm gonna blow it right away and then that way you don't feel bad," he revealed to Conan O'Brien. But to John's surprise, the date went well and they've been together ever since.
August 2009: A Casual Proposal in LA
After less than a year of dating, John proposed to Emily in Los Angeles. The "casual" proposal was full of tears from both the happy couple and their friends. The actor recalled, "She did cry after I cried and we cried and then everyone around us was crying. Then, I think people weren't really sure what was going on, but they were crying because we were crying. But it was great. At the end of the day she said yes which is great. It's a big part of this whole thing."
July 10, 2010: A Wedding in Lake Como
Emily and John wed in Lake Como on July 10, 2010. The private ceremony was held at George Clooney's estate and the bride wore a Marchesa wedding gown.
The Devil Wears Prada actress did have one wedding day regret, however: her spray tan! "I got a bad spray tan and I would probably change that," Blunt told James Corden on The Late Late Show. "I look at the pictures and it just has an orange hue that is unnatural to normal skin color. Why was I on a budget on my wedding day? It was a bit patchy. It stinks! And it was a very hot day so if you sweat and you have a spray tan—wearing white. Just seeping orange. It was terrible." If only Blunt read this ahead of her big day!
