PEOPLE Faves: The Best of Summer '09!
BIGGEST FANTASY WEDDING
You may kiss the princess bride! Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan said their "I dos" on July 11 at an oceanside estate in front of 220 friends and family members. The couple's whimsical wedding featured a fantasy-fairy theme, with winged flower girls, a castle-shaped cake and crystal keepsakes for the guests.
BEST DAY AT THE BEACH
When you're Matthew McConaughey, any day is a good day to hit the beach! The actor – with pregnant girlfriend Camila Alves and son Levi, 1, in tow – was almost a daily fixture on Malibu's shores, hanging with the family, working out or just simply enjoying the ocean breeze.
TASTIEST HOT DOG
Nothing says summer like a fresh-from-the-grill hot dog served up on a toasted bun. While America Ferrera isn't exactly edible, she definitely dressed the part while filming Ugly Betty in New York City on Aug. 25.
MOST ENVIABLE VACATION
Sun, surf and the romantic backdrop of Capri – it all adds up to the perfect getaway for Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, who joined designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for a relaxing day at sea during their Italian vacation in August.
And you thought Macy's Fourth of July fireworks display was something to behold! It's hard to focus on her "Poker Face" when Lady Gaga literally lit up the stage at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto this June with a fiery performance.
BEST SUMMER ROMANCE
BEST SUMMER BROMANCE
Good pals Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson aren't afraid to get this close during a high-spirited wrestling match at sea while vacationing in Portofino, Italy, in July.
