It seemed like every few days of 2019, a different celebrity duo took to social media to commemorate their wedding, showing off their designer dresses and tuxedos, their supremely starry guest lists, and their jaw-dropping venues. In just the first half of the year, we saw Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner tie the knot in Paris, Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre say "I do" in Morocco, and Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor take a trip far, far away from SUR to exchange vows at the picturesque Kentucky Castle.
The second half of 2019 brought us a ton of celebrity weddings too, proving fall is the new wedding season! We were shocked by Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan's surprise nuptials and Jennifer Lawrence finally said 'I do' to her art dealer beau and chose a haunted mansion in Rhode Island as her venue.
Scroll through to revisit the 45 celebrity weddings that took place in 2019.
Arie Luyendyk and Lauren Burnham
The Bachelor couple sealed the deal in an intimate, tropical-themed ceremony in Maui on January 12, during which they exchanged Neil Lane wedding bands. Not long after, in May, they announced the birth of their first child, daughter Alessi Ren. It's safe to say that 2019 is shaping up to be a pretty spectacular year for the reality TV couple.
Miranda Lambert and Brendan Mcloughlin
The country singer chose Valentine's Day to finally reveal that not only did she have a new love in her life, but that she and the policeman had tied the knot in secret a few weeks before, on January 26. "In honor of Valentine's Day I wanted to share some news. I met the love of my life. And we got hitched!" she wrote. "My heart is full. Thank you Brendan McLoughlin for loving me for.... me."
Darren Criss and Mia Swier
After nearly a decade together, Criss and Swier made things official in New Orleans on February 16. The intimate wedding was attended by plenty of Criss's fellow Glee alums, including John Stamos, Chord Overstreet, and Harry Shum Jr. The pair announced their engagement in January 2018, when Criss wrote on Instagram, "Mia and I have had seven and a half years of fun, wacky, wonderful, CRAZY adventures together. And I'm happy to announce that we're kicking those adventures up a notch. We're goin for it. To boldly go where neither of us have gone before. Engage."
Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz
The supermodel and her musician beau waited until July 2019 to reveal that they had said "I do" in secret months before, on February 22. The low-key nuptials took place exactly a year after the couple first met, and just a few months after they announced their engagement on Christmas Eve 2018. A less-secret second wedding ceremony was held on August 4th in Capri on the same yacht where Jackie Kennedy married Aristotle Onassis decades ago.
Chance the Rapper and Kirsten Corley
Less than a year after proposing on the Fourth of July in 2018, Chance the Rapper married his childhood sweetheart at the Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach, California, on March 9. They exchanged vows under a rotunda overlooking the ocean, with Corley in a strapless white gown and Chance in a crisp white tux. Guests included Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Dave Chappelle, but the real star of the show was the newlyweds' daughter Kensli, who ran down the aisle mid-ceremony and got to hang out in her dad's arms for the rest of the nuptials.
Marc Jacobs and Char Defrancesco
In what may be the most fashionable wedding of the decade, the designer married his longtime boyfriend in New York City on April 6. The stylish bash was attended by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and the Hadid sisters, just to name a few of the 700-plus attendees. In his vows, Jacobs told Defrancesco, "It is a privilege to be with you and have you in my life, and I promise that I will never take you for granted. I promise I will better learn how to listen to you, to hear you, and to understand you. What you have given me, what I have never had before, is the dream of a happy forever and I promise you that I will never, ever float away."
Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney
The "Everywhere" singer and the Black Keys musician said "I do" at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans (the same venue where Solange Knowles married Alan Ferguson in 2014) on April 20. The dreamy wedding was filled with plenty of food, dancing—and a quick breastfeeding break for the bride, who shared a sweet photo of her taking a break mid-reception, still clad in her gorgeous wedding gown, to feed the couple's baby son Rhys.
Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre
About a year after popping the question on the red carpet in early 2018, Elba married Dhowre on April 26. The couple celebrated their nuptials surrounded by family and friends in a three-day bash at the Ksar Char Bagh Hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco, with the bride in custom Vera Wang and the groom in a dapper Ozwald Boateng suit.
Giacomo Gianniotti and Nichole Gustafson
The Grey's Anatomy star became a married man on April 28—but not with Meredith Grey. Gianniotti and Gustafson married under the sun at the Villa Pocci in Rome, with Gianniotti wearing an Armani tux and his bride in a gorgeous off-the-shoulder, mermaid-style gown by Netta BenShabu Bridal. Gustafson, a makeup artist, did her own glam for the ceremony, which was followed by slices of their massive triple-tiered cake, plenty of sparklers, and a dance party that lasted well past midnight.
Jude Law and Phillipa Coan
On April 30, Law and Coan followed in the venerable tradition of countless celebrity couples before them to marry in a secret civil ceremony. Coan was spotted heading into Old Marylebone Town Hall that day in a short, cream-colored V-neck dress and a dainty fascinator, carrying a bouquet of brightly colored wildflowers, while Law joined his psychologist girlfriend in a navy suit, gray fedora and trendy round sunglasses. An hour later, they left town hall wearing some pretty important new pieces of jewelry—and clearly deserving of some major congratulations.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas
Though it's still no match for brother Nick Jonas's many, many 2018 wedding ceremonies, Joe Jonas has actually told Sophie Turner "I do" twice this year. The lovebirds shocked everyone by initially tying the knot in a late-night ceremony in Las Vegas on May 1, after the Billboard Music Awards, then hosted a more formal celebration in the south of France on June 29, following a week's worth of romantic strolls through Paris and celeb-studded parties on yachts.
Kelly McCreary and Pete Chatmon
Dr. DeLuca isn't the only Grey's Anatomy cast member to tie the knot in 2019: Dr. Maggie Pierce took a walk down the aisle this year as well. On May 5, McCreary married her director husband in a beachside wedding, wearing a beaded Made With Love Bridal gown that featured a plunging neckline and cascading train, and which she paired with a long veil and brightly colored bouquet. Chatmon, meanwhile, wore a classy black tuxedo and a pair of white sneakers. "Married, yo! In our favorite place, surrounded by beloved family and friends, and under the new moon. I am besieged by blessings," McCreary wrote on Instagram.
Gina Rodriguez and Joe LoCicero
Rodriguez married her occasional costar and longtime love on May 6, a day that she called "absolute magic." As evidenced by a video montage the Jane the Virgin star shared on Instagram a few days later, their nuptials were nothing short of stunning: The pair traded vows in a backyard ceremony, in front of a circular altar covered in pink and white flowers, with Rodriguez's onscreen flame Justin Baldoni officiating.
Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman
The Big Little Lies star and her actor husband were reportedly legally married in May, about a month before they gathered their friends, family and costars in Paris for a more traditional ceremony. Their star-studded wedding weekend began with a rehearsal dinner at Laperouse Restaurant—to which Kravitz wore chic white bike shorts—followed by the vow exchange and exclusive after-party the next day.
Cheryl Burke and Matthew Lawrence
Move over, The Bachelor—Dancing With the Stars may have the strongest matchmaking record of all reality TV. The latest DWTS couple to tie the knot were Burke and Lawrence, who met on the show's set in 2007 and said "I do" on May 23. The pair performed their mirror ball trophy-worthy first dance at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar Hotel in San Diego, as plenty of family, friends and DWTS alums looked on.
Charlotte Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam
Princess Grace's granddaughter may have a set a record for the most low-key royal wedding of all time: Despite being 11th in line for the throne of Monaco, Casiraghi married her film producer husband in an under-the-radar civil ceremony on June 1. The royal wore a short gray dress from Yves St. Laurent to the ceremony, which was attended by Prince Albert II, Princess Charlene, Princess Gabriella, and Prince Jacques, as well as Casiraghi and Rassam's three children: their six-month-old son Balthazar, Casiraghi's five-year-old son Raphael, and Rassam's seven-year-old daughter.
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger
Pratt and Schwarzenegger exchanged vows on June 8, just about a year after they were first spotted spending time together. Their romantic ceremony reportedly took place at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Afterwards, they shared matching posts on Instagram, writing, "Yesterday was the best day of our lives! We became husband and wife in front of God, our families and those we love. It was intimate, moving and emotional. We feel so blessed to begin this new chapter of our lives."
Caroline Wozniacki and David Lee
At Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany, Italy, on June 15, the tennis pro married the former NBA star in what can only be described as a match made in ESPN heaven. While Lee opted for a classic black tux by Tom Ford, Wozniacki wore a lace Oscar de la Renta gown and a cathedral-length veil, and was joined at the altar in front of 120 guests by a group of bridesmaids that included Serena Williams. "Best weekend of my life," Wozniacki captioned an adorable photo of the newlyweds watching a post-ceremony fireworks show among the Castiglion ruins.
Kimberly Hidalgo and Brant Daugherty
When the Pretty Little Liars star married his longtime girlfriend on June 15, their Northern California ceremony doubled as a High School Musical reunion: Both Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens stood by Hidalgo as bridesmaids. The wedding included approximately 200 other guests, including Sarah Hyland, and was followed by a romantic honeymoon in Greece.
Katharine McPhee and David Foster
The American Idol alum married the man who produced her first-ever single on June 28, in a gorgeous ceremony at the church of St. Yeghiche in London. The nuptials were Foster's fifth and McPhee's second; in a romantic comedy-esque twist of fate, not only was Foster invited to McPhee's first wedding, but he also sat down at the piano that day to serenade his future bride and her then-husband.
Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor
The Vanderpump Rules costars made things official on June 29 at the Kentucky Castle. As reality TV royalty, their wedding was attended by plenty of fellow Bravo stars and officiated by none other than *NSYNC's Lance Bass.
Gigi Gorgeous and Nats Getty
The beauty vlogger certainly lived up to her name at her extravagant beachside wedding to longtime partner Nats Getty on July 12. The pair traded handwritten vows at the Rosewood Miramar Beach in Montecito, California, in front of more than 200 guests, after walking down a white-carpeted aisle lined with dreamy white flowering trees. "I promise to be your shoulder to cry on. I promise to ask you and our friends and family for help when I need it. And most of all, I promise to be your person. I love you, Nats. And with every beat of my heart, I will love you more and more," Gigi said in her vows.
Chuck Wicks and Kasi Williams
Barely four months after announcing their engagement, the country singer and his now-wife married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on July 12. They tied the knot at the Cabo Azul Resort in front of 103 guests, with Williams, sister of Wicks's fellow country star Jason Aldean, wearing a spaghetti-strap gown with a deep V-neck and beaded detailing, carrying a bouquet of white flowers and sporting a loose, beachy hairstyle. Their wedding weekend included an ATV excursion, lavish pre-wedding brunch, and plenty of dancing—in short, as Wicks put it, "a party from start to finish."
Bradley Whitford and Amy Landecker
In what Whitford accurately described as a total "plot twist," he and his Handmaid's Tale and Transparent costar married in a low-key ceremony in California on July 17, just over a year after announcing their engagement. Whitford confirmed the surprise wedding in a tweet, writing, "Commander Lawrence married Mrs. McKenzie today in Santa Barbara. The shark may have been jumped, but the couple is thrilled." Praise be!
Emma Myles and Darcy Cadman
Orange Is The New Black star Emma Myles married Darcy Cadman during a colorful wedding on a Brooklyn rooftop on August 3.
