This summer, celebrities succeeded in sending us “regular folk” in a tizzy with a long list of wedding engagements & ceremonies. We were able to bask in our US Weekly & People Magazines who reported to us the latest and greatest in summer celebrity couple celebrations! The list includes a popular Internet CEO, the Queen of Pop, several academy award winners & the latest and greatest in the NBA.
tanaRi events shares their top ten celebrity engagements/wedding list:
Jessica Biel/Justin Timberlake – the masses have been waiting for years for JT to pop the question – and he finally has! After a rocky few years, they were engaged end of 2011/early 2012. Rumors currently circulating suggest they will have an Italian wedding next month!
Mark Zuckerberg/Priscilla Chan – Facebook CEO suprised millions when he married his longtime girlfriend in a quiet Palo Alto, CA ceremony. Chan’s choice of wedding gown (designed by Claire Pettibone) put the designer on mainstream wedding map.
Jennifer Aniston/Justin Theroux – we were thrilled to find out that boyfriend Justin Theroux proposed to our favorite girl-next-door last month. We hope this will be long lasting marriage for them!
Matthew McConaughey/Camila Alves – we were all patiently waiting for this one.. Two kids (with a third on the way) & they officially got hitched in June! They had a beautiful wedding at their home in Austin, TX. McConaughey wore a three piece Dolce & Gabanna suit; Alves wore a custom-made Ducarmo Castelo Branco design.
Avril Lavigne/Chad Kroeger – probably the most unexpected engagement on this list.. The Canadian rockers found love again while making music together for Lavigne’s upcoming album. This is Lavigne’s second engagement – she was previously married to Sum41 lead singer Deryck Whibley. (Let’s not forget to mention she helped make our work in the Picksie 2.0 launch event a success!)
Natalie Portman/Benjamin Millepied – we were all surprised when we heard Oscar winner Natalie Portman was pregnant, no less engaged to her Black Swan co-actor Benjamin Millepied. The best part? They wed in a gorgeous Jewish ceremony this summer in Big Sur, CA (with beautiful wildflowers!) Portman wore a gown by popular designer(s) Rodarte and served French macaroons as a wedding dessert!
LeBron James/Savannah Brinson – heading into the 2012 New Year, James’ long-time high school sweetheart got the best present a girl could ask for – an engagement from the most popular NBA star in the game!
Carey Mulligan/Marcus Mumford – our favorite rising actress and folk singer said their “I do’s” at a beautiful farm wedding in Somerset, England. Both Mulligan & Mumford wore Prada. Her bridesmaids also wore custom-made Prada gowns in various shades of blue.
Halle Berry/Oliver Martinez – this will make it Berry’s third time down the aisle, but third time’s a charm! Martinez proposed in March with a beautiful emerald engagement ring.
Blake Lively/Ryan Reynolds – we couldn’t end the summer on a higher note than hearing the announcement of Reynolds and Lively’s secret wedding at the Boone Plantation in South Carolina. (For those who do not know, this is the house where famously romantic film The Notebook took place.) There were no press at the ceremony and they managed to pull off the wedding of the summer! Lively reportedly wore a Marchesa gown and had Florence + The Machine perform a few songs at the reception.
