From Erin & Simon to Hilary & Matthew: All of the Celeb Couples Who Tied the Knot in 2019
Erin Foster & Simon Tikhman
What a way to ring in the new decade! Foster married Tikhman in a New Year's Eve ceremony.
The pair were surrounded by friends and family for the occasion, with Erin's dad, David Foster, walking her down the aisle and his wife Katharine McPhee singing at the event. Her mother Rebecca Dyer and older sister Sara Foster were also in attendance. Other attendees included Rachel Zoe, Jonah Hill and Kate Hudson.
Kathy Griffin & Randy Bick
Griffin’s video of the nuptials was only of the first minute or so and showed Lily Tomlin (hilariously) officiating.
Griffin wore the dress that she wore on the couple's very first date back in 2011 — Bick chose the gown from her closet in a sweet callback to the beginning of their relationship.
Ashlyn Harris & Ali Krieger
For their “I dos,” Krieger wore a gown by Pronovias — also the designer for the mothers of the brides’ dresses and the bridesmaids’ dresses — and Harris wore a custom suit by Thom Browne. The pair exchanged rings by Great Heights, who Krieger told PEOPLE “share the same vision and support surrounding equality and LGBTQ marriage rights.”
Ahead of their big day, Harris said that she was excited for the bigger impact of their marriage, explaining, “This will be the first time in our relationship where all of our friends, all of our family are going to come together to be one and to celebrate us on a completely different level. I think so much of our support from our family and friends have been through soccer and this is just so much more meaningful, in my opinion, to be celebrated for love and acceptance and inclusion, that’s so major in the world we live in now.”
“So I’m so excited to have this type of platform to have this type of visibility to be seen as a gay couple and it be accepted and it be important,” she added.
Their ceremony comes nine months after the two exclusively revealed their engagement to PEOPLE in March 2019.
Hilary Duff & Matthew Koma
The two were first linked in early 2017, but broke things off briefly in March of the same year. In September 2017, the pair reunited for good, and announced that they were expecting their first child together eight months later, in June 2018.
A source told PEOPLE, "The wedding was at her house. It was small and low-key. Only family and close friends."
“The ceremony started at sunset and they got married inside the house. When the ceremony was over, guests cheered. The reception was in a white tent in the backyard,” the source added. “Her sister Haylie was very involved in the wedding prep too. Hilary and Haylie are very close.”
Joshua Jackson & Jodie Turner-Smith
The Affair actor and Turner-Smith were first linked romantically after being spotted together grabbing lunch — and holding hands — in November 2018.
In August 2019, the pair appeared to pick up a marriage license in Beverly Hills, according to the Daily Mail. The outlet published a photo of the pair smiling as Turner-Smith held onto an envelope.
Afiya Bennett & Lloyd Dickenson
Model Bennett, who appeared as Naomi Campbell’s protégé on the competition series, The Face, wed her actor-model fiancé Dickenson on Dec. 15 at The Palace at Somerset Park in New Jersey.
The couple, who first met while modeling for a Nike campaign, hosted an elegant black-tie affair for 165 of their loved ones. "With a name like The Palace you have to keep that going and you have to dress the part," Dickenson told PEOPLE exclusively about their "royal wedding vibe."
While they'd initially planned a destination wedding to Antigua, the pair ultimately opted to stay local near their home in New Jersey to include more family members.
Tiffany Panhilason & Adam Schmidt
The Girls Cruise star and her entrepreneur fiancé tied the knot at the historic Oheka Castle in Long Island, New York on Dec. 13.
The couple honored their Filipino and Spanish roots by exchanging both traditional and personal vows in front of their 150 guests, which included Panhilason's Girls Cruise costars Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, Mya, Vena “Pretty Vee” Excell, B. Simone and rapper Lil’ Kim, who served as maid of honor.
The reception, which the bride described as “whimsical, magical, romantic and elegant,” included a five-course meal.
Attendees — including Matt Sorum, Ace Harper, Gabrielle Dennis, AnnaLynne McCord, Jeannie Mai, as well as designer Marc Jacobs and his husband, Girls Cruise cast member Char DeFrancesco— were also served wedding cake that featured a 3-D scan of the couple.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to grow in love together and to celebrate life to the fullest,” Panhilason told PEOPLE ahead of her wedding.
Evan Lysacek & Dang Bodiratnangkura
The 2010 Olympic gold medalist in men’s figure skating wed Bodiratnangkura on Dec. 12 in Bangkok, Thailand.
“It was love at first sight,” Lysacek told PEOPLE.
“When relationships are hard, they’re impossible. But when they’re right, it’s so easy,” he said. “So for us it was so easy — and that’s kind of how I knew it was right.”
Bodiratnangkura, a real estate developer in one of the most prominent families in Thailand, told PEOPLE: “Evan knows me better than anyone and always protects me in every sense of the word. I feel so loved, cared for and protected by him. I’m marrying my best friend.”
The couple was first introduced through mutual friends after Lysacek's Olympic victory in 2010. He proposed to Bodiratnangkura in Miami on April 1, which also happened to be her birthday.
The couple exchanged rings designed by Patcharavipa, the bride’s sister’s jewelry company. Hers is a band of book-matched taper baguette diamonds, and his is a clean platinum band. Both rings were inscribed with 12.12 — the exact date and time they married.
Brooks Nader & William Haire
“I’m mostly excited to call him hubby!” she told PEOPLE exclusively. “We are also excited to just continue our adventures together. We’ve done a lot of fun traveling and look forward to doing even more.”
Ahead of her big day, Nader (who worked with wedding planner Leslie Campbell of Leslie Campbell Weddings for over a year to pull off the ceremony) said her wedding will be “chic and modern with a romantic twist and a New Orleans flair.”
After trying on nearly 50 wedding gowns, the model chose an Oscar de la Renta gown. She wore a white gold tennis bracelet, wrap ring and earrings by Ring Concierge. Later on, the bride changed into custom Viero Bridal gown, a kite ring, a simple diamond band and an emerald tennis bracelet by the same jewelry designer for the reception.
Sadie Robertson & Christian Huff
It's a weekday wedding! The Ducky Dynasty star wed fiancé Christian Huff on her family's Louisiana farm on Monday, Nov. 25.
The Dancing With the Stars runner-up and Huff said "I do" in front over over 600 family and friends on a tennis court transformed into a romantic garden space.
"Christian is so kind and so affirming of who I am as a person. He makes me a lot stronger. I just feel like equally, we make each other better when we’re together," Robertson told PEOPLE ahead of her wedding.
Maddie Marlow & Jonah Font
After eight years together, country singer Maddie Marlow and Jonah Font are married.
Marlow, who is one half of the popular duo Maddie & Tae, tied the knot in a fall and winter-themed wedding with her longtime boyfriend in front of 150 of their loved ones at The Barn at Sycamore Farms in Arrington, Tennessee on Nov. 22.
The couple, who first met eight years ago during the "Trying On Rings" singer's sophomore year of high school in Texas, were wed by the pastor from their church in Nashville.
"We both can’t hold back happy tears," the singer said. "It’s been eight years of knowing this was our goal and the fact that it’s finally here is so exciting and very emotional. I’m most excited for walking down the aisle to my dream man."
Joe Anglim & Sierra Dawn Thomas
The Survirvor: Worlds Apart stars may have started out on opposing tribes during the 2014 game, but now they're set to spend the rest of their lives together.
On Nov. 23, the couple — who met on the reality show and got engaged last April — wed at The Hideaway on Angel, a wedding venue in Layton, Utah, in front of several of their former Survivor castmates.
"No words to describe how full my heart is after this weekend," Anglim wrote on Twitter after the nuptials. "I married the love of my life, my soulmate, twin flame and very best friend. We have been blessed with incredible families, friends, and complete strangers who have affirmed us in more ways than we could ever imagine."
Angelina Pivarnick & Chris Larangeira
Pivarnick’s costars Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Deena Cortese were bridesmaids, and their male roomies Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino and Ronnie-Ortiz-Magro were all in attendance.
The bride wore a strapless, white lace Castle Couture dress, which she styled with a matching veil, silver tiara, and jewelry, according to outlet.
Prior to tying the knot, the couple had dated for a little over two years before getting engaged in January 2018.
Speaking to PEOPLE in May 2018, Pivarnick gushed about the relationship.
“This is my third engagement. Third time’s a charm!” she said. “I did not think I was going to get engaged again after my last engagement. It was toxic and it was terrible. But last summer, I went out to some big pool party in a backyard. I had known Chris for 14 years and he says the reason he never hit on me was because I always had a boyfriend. We both worked in the mall when we were younger, and he says he used to see me walk past with a different boyfriend every week.”
“But he asked me to come to this pool party and I went,” she continued. “We started hanging out from there and we’ve been together ever since.”
Devin Dawson & Leah Sykes
The “All on Me” crooner and the singer-songwriter said their "I dos" in Franklin, Tennessee on Oct. 27 after two-and-a-half years of dating. The couple spent their big day with 200 guests at the Carnton historic plantation house and museum. Ahead of their nuptials, Dawson told PEOPLE that he and Sykes chose the sprawling farm as their venue because it was the ideal setting for an autumn wedding.
Sykes wore a gown for the ceremony and reception designed by Monique Lhuillier, which she described as a “form-fitting, solid lace” dress “with a low back.” Her veil was chapel length.
“Honestly, I said I wanted to feel like a fairy princess and that is exactly how the dress makes me feel,” Sykes said.
Sykes’ older brother, Jacob, married the couple, who wrote their own wedding vows.
“We wanted to recite our own written vows in addition to traditional wedding vows,” Dawson said. “You better believe that two songwriters and artists wanted to write our own vows and promises!”
Chris Lane & Lauren Bushnell
The country star and Bachelor alum are officially husband and wife after four months of being engaged. The two wed on Oct. 25 in front of 160 family members and friends in a “secret garden” ceremony in their hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.
“I’ve just looked forward to the day for quite some time and I’m glad that it’s finally here,” Lane told PEOPLE. “I feel like I’m the luckiest guy in the world to be marrying her.”
“I feel like the luckiest girl,” Bushnell added. “We both recognize what we have is special, and we feel very lucky.”
Though the Mr. and Mrs. are planning a quick post-wedding getaway, they’ve set their sights on a “real honeymoon” to possibly Hawaii, once he completes his touring schedule this year. They’ll also be quickly moving out of their downtown Nashville apartment, along with their recently adopted mutt, Cooper, and into a brand-new home in the city.
Flea & Melody Ehsani
The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist and fashion designer revealed on their respective Instagrams on Oct. 22 that they had officially tied the knot.
Flea, whose real name is Michael Balzary, shared a stunning photo from the wedding and wrote, "My life has changed forever and I am eternally humble and grateful. The person who sees all of me and knows who I am. My wife @melodyehsani ❤️❤️❤️."
Ehsani posted a different photo from their wedding, which gave fans a full view of her gorgeous long-sleeved, form-fitting, sheer gown and Flea’s unique purple tuxedo.
“This weekend I got to marry my best friend,” she captioned the photo of the couple standing arm-in-arm in front of a brick building.
“Surely, my best collaboration to date 😁☺️” Ehsani joked, before gushing, “you’re my whole heart @flea333 🥰♥️🥰.”
Reps for both Flea and Ehsani did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
This is Flea’s second marriage. The musician was previously married to Loesha Zeviar, with whom he shares 31-year-old daughter, Clara Balzary. Flea was also previously engaged to model Frankie Rayder, but the pair never married. The former couple share daughter Sunny Bebop Balzary, 13.
Jennifer Lawrence & Cooke Maroney
The Oscar-winning actress and art dealer tied the knot on Oct. 19, PEOPLE confirmed.
The couple held a wedding reception for their 150 guests, including Adele, Amy Schumer and Kris Jenner, at the luxurious Belcourt of Newport, a mansion in Newport, Rhode Island that was designed in 1894 by renowned American architect Richard Morris Hunt. A source told PEOPLE that the bride wore a Dior dress on her big day.
The couple’s wedding reception food was prepared outside the venue on a section of the estate’s large gravel driveway. Set out on large rectangular tables were rows of squash and carrots, and there were also tons of smoked fish and beef being cooked on open fire spits.
In June, Lawrence called Maroney “the greatest human being I’ve ever met.”
“He really is, and he gets better,” she added while speaking on Catt Sadler’s podcast Naked with Catt Sadler.
“I don’t know, I started with the basics,” the actress continued, when asked why she chose to marry him. “‘How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?’ It’s just — this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he’s just, he’s — you know. He’s the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very honored to become a Maroney.”
Rafael Nadal & Mery “Xisca” Perelló
Wearing a gown designed by Rosa Clará, the bride served up sheer elegance to match the newlyweds’ picturesque big day. Perelló, in photos shared on the designer’s official Instagram, can be seen in a long-sleeved dress, which includes a jeweled neckline, floral motifs, and microbeads on hand-embroidered fabric.
“The whole process was full of emotions between all of us,” Clará captioned a video showcasing the outfit’s creation process. “We just want to thank the whole family for trusting in us, you’re extraordinary.”
While the legendary athlete has kept his relationship with Perelló private, the outlet said the two have dated for about 14 years. She hails from Nadal’s hometown of Mallorca, the largest island of Spain’s Balearic Islands, which are in the Mediterranean.
Howard & Beth Stern
DeGeneres took things to the next level by springing the wedding on the Sterns and then upping the ante by bringing former Bachelor star Colton Underwood out to officiate the ceremony.
“Beth and I are Bachelor Nation!” Howard cheered at the surprise. “[It’s] our favorite show, I’m not messing around!”
From there, the couple exchanged “I dos” for a second time.
Hilarie Burton & Jeffrey Dean Morgan
The couple and parents to 9-year-old son Gus and 19-month daughter George revealed on Oct. 14 that they legally got married over the weekend, contrary to reports that they had already wed years ago. Morgan's rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple got married on Oct. 5 in New York.
“This past weekend was the best of my entire life,” Burton captioned an Instagram post, which showed off a stunning black and white image of their special day captured by photographer Sasithon Pooviriyakul. “There are dozens of thank yous I need to make. So bear with me over the next week as I gush over the amazing group of people who gave us this beautiful moment. But before we do any of that, Jeff and I just want to put it out there that WE GOT MARRIED! For real.”
“We’ve lived as husband and wife for a decade. We’ve built a family, and a farm and found our community,” she continued. “For years, publications have reported that we got married in 2014 or 2015 and that I’ve been married and divorced before. All untrue. But WE knew our truth. So it felt silly to try and correct anything.”
She concluded: “I love you Jeffrey. I love our intimate group of friends and family who joined us. I love the various circles of loved ones who have supported us over the years. It was private and magical and everything I dreamed. So yeah. I’m Mrs. Morgan. 10.5.19.”
Dr. Paul Nassif & Brittany Pattakos
While Nassif and Pattakos exchanged vows in a private ceremony in L.A. in late Sept., the couple celebrated their marriage at a beachfront resort on the Greek Island of Santorini on Oct. 6. The couple invited 65 guests to the formal destination reception.
“Paul and I are incredibly grateful to have family and friends from around the world join us in the blessing of our marriage here in Santorini, Greece. We are equally as thankful for the family we had at our official wedding ceremony in Los Angeles on September 28th, 2019,” Pattakos told E!
“To have so many loved ones is the greatest gift,” she continued. “The Greek people welcomed us with open arms and made us feel truly at home. The perfect weather and island made a spectacular backdrop for the moments we will cherish for the rest of our lives. This was the most exciting start to our marriage. We are so thrilled to share our lives together.”
The bride wore a form-fitting white lace wedding dress for the reception, while Nassif looked sleek in a light grey suit with a pink tie.
Michael Ray & Carly Pearce
The country stars tied the knot on Oct. 6 in front of friends and family in Tennessee on a Nashville-area farm. The bride wore "a dress that felt unique to [her]," donning an untraditional gown featuring a high neckline, full-length sleeves, and a short pencil skirt cloaked in a full-length piece of sheer lace to marry Ray.
The pair wrote and recited their own vows during the rustic, charming, bohemian affair before partying the night away.

Following the vows, the guests were escorted to the post-ceremony cocktail hour ahead of the formal reception where Grammy winner Daniel Caesar performed later in the evening. The glowing bride changed into a white halter-neck dress for her reception and had on $123,000 Tiffany studs in platinum with diamonds, while the handsome groom wore a black bow tie and a new Audemars Piguet watch he’d apparently splurged on himself as a wedding gift.

Tyler Rich & Sabina Gadecki
Ahead of their big day, the couple told PEOPLE that they chose Saddle Woods Farm as their venue in part because of the “kind” owners, Jayne and Gary LeGate.
“They invited us in for dinner with their family during the holidays when we visited the venue,” they said. “We were sold right then and there.”
The couple decorated the space with pampas grass, macrame, neon lights, bulb string lights, vintage rugs, teepees and couches to bring their music festival-themed wedding to life.
“We met at a music festival and spend so much of our time together on the road at shows [and] festivals,” Rich and Gadecki said. “So we wanted to throw a festival-themed wedding so our guests could take a step into our lives for a night.”
Standing beside the couple as they wed was a bridal party made up of 13 groomsmen and 12 bridesmaids, including three best men and three maids of honor. Ayesha Curry, who attended with her husband Stephen Curry, was in Gadecki’s bridal party.
One of the couple’s closest friends, Ambrosio “Boskie” Lopez, married them. “Nobody knows us better as individuals and as a couple at the same time,” they said.

After the grooms said their “I Do’s” and were introduced as husbands, a mariachi band serenaded the guests and everyone enjoyed a cocktail hour that was set up like a street fair, complete with food trucks and market stalls.
“Visually it was one of the most exciting weddings I’ve ever planned,” said Russo of Michael Russo Events. “The coloration was pretty neutral—beige and creams — but for the flowers we did all orange, so it was a ton of marigolds, which is truly an indigenous flower of Santa Fe.”

Reinert told PEOPLE she fell in love with the couple's unique wedding venue after finding it on Airbnb. "The property is completely secluded on 19 acres of land, and it has the most perfect tree-lined path with a landing, which is where we had our ceremony."

Bachelor alums in attendance at the Michael Russo-planned wedding included Kristina Schulman, Astrid Loch and Bibiana Julian. Lindsay opened up to PEOPLE about the couple's decision not to televise their nuptials, saying that while she initially "wanted a TV wedding," she changed her mind after she and Abasolo "got to know each other in the real world and things became normalized."

Fellow NBA stars John Wall and Eric Bledsoe took part as groomsmen, and several former Golden State Warriors teammates and current Lakers teammates were in attendance.
