Congratulations are in order for Kat Von D!
And her HUSBAND, Rafael Reyes!
That's right, yesterday Kat married Rafael, also known as Leafar Seyer, his stage name with his band, Prayers.
Or, well they were technically already married -- they tied the knot back in February in a quickie ceremony.
Back then, she took to Instagram to call Rafael "my soul's mate, my mind's twin, my best friend," and he was pretty gushy about her too, calling her "the girl of my dreams."
And even though it's only been a few months since then, it looks like they're more in love than ever, since they had their big wedding this weekend!
The whole thing really is just so sweet, and also so stylish -- wait till you see Kat's dress!
But before the actual wedding -- on Friday after the rehearsal dinner -- Kat took to social media once again to express her absolute happiness, along with a picture of some flowers.
"Such a beautifully emotional day today," she wrote, explaining that the next day she and Rafael "will have our wedding ceremony for our close friends + family."
"This has been the sweetest, most stress-free experience where we continuously fell in love with each other all over again with each day counting down."
As for the flowers, she said that they are three carnations that a friend brought them, and that they "represent him, me, and our sweet baby boy we are adding to our family."
Because in case you missed it, she's pregnant, too!
"All I can say right now," Kat continued, "is that I am so grateful fo my dear friends, and for my sweet husband."
"Lastly, thank you all for the love and for understanding that starting tomorrow we will most likely be stepping away from our phones for a while to be as present as possibly on such a beautiful day."
But thankfully, Rafael did grab his phone to give us a quick little peak at the beautiful bride!
Can you even handle this beautiful Beetlejuice realness?!
In the caption of the photo, Rafael told us that "In a couple hours I'll be walking down the aisle with the love of my life," and he added "EN VIDA Y EN MUERTE," which is what they've both been writing in their captions about each other for a while now.
It translates to "in life and in death," which is nice, right?
We don't have too much more information on the wedding yet, since they do seem to be off enjoying this special time together.
But in case you wanted more info on that amazing dress, it's by designer Adolfo Sanchez!
A friend was also kind enough to share a photo from the reception -- you can get a full look at the dress, plus the kind of decorations you'd expect from a Kat Von D wedding.
The friend congratulated the couple, saying "You are both beautiful people and deserve a lifetime of happiness together. Thanks for letting me be part of your amazing wedding!"
And honestly, in case you're not getting our feelings on this, it really does look like it was an amazing wedding.
For the record, this is Kat's second marriage -- she was married to tattoo artist and Ink Master judge Oliver Peck from 2003 to 2007.
This is Rafael's first marriage, but he does have a daughter from a previous relationship.
In a few months, they'll welcome their baby, a boy they've said they'll name Leafar.
Once again, congratulations!!!
As you've no doubt heard by now, Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in an unforgettable ceremony at Windsor Castle this morning.
At this point, virtually every aspect of the royal wedding has been dissected on social media and in the tabloids.
There have been in-depth discussions about Meghan and Harry's celebrity guests; the moving ceremony that incorporated elements of the cultures in which both newlyweds were raised; and of course, the fabulous dress worn by the new Duchess of Sussex.
But some of the more subtle details of the ceremony have been largely overlooked.
For example, there's been little coverage of the moving ways in which Meghan and Harry paid tribute to his late mother, Princess Diana.
The most poignant tribute to the late Princess Di may have been the inclusion of her most beloved flower in Meghan's 16-foot veil.
"The spring blooms include Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’ favorite flower," a statement from Kensington Palace read.
"The couple specifically chose them to be included in Ms. Markle’s bouquet to honor the memory of the late Princess on this special day."
For her second outfit of the day (pictured above) Meghan combined her something borrowed with her something blue by sporting an aquamarine ring from Princess Diana's private collection.
Meg also kept an unofficial British tradition alive by collaborating with a female British designer to craft the perfect dress, just as Di and Kate Middleton did.
As for Harry, his signals that his mother was on his mind were a bit more subtle but no less potent.
Royal watchers believe Harry's tendency to bite his lower lip was inherited from Diana:
"This is a micro-expression," human behavioral expert Susan Constantine tells Good Housekeeping.
"In this deeply personal moment, Harry is trying to conceal his emotions."
And that's not the only way in which Harry's body language spoke volumes, as royal experts noted that he flouted custom by watching Meg walk down the aisle:
"At a British wedding, the groom and his best man (or supporter) will face the altar as the bride walks down the aisle," says Myka Meira of Beaumont Etiquette.
"He won’t turn to look at her until she is beside him."
Those Brits, they're an understated bunch.
Check out more highlights from Harry and Meghan's big day in the gallery below:
Moments ago, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were married in an unforgettable ceremony at Windsor Castle.
Meghan looked flawless in a Givenchy dress, and Harry was dapper as always in his military uniform.
Which is all to the good, as the newlyweds had some A-list guests competing for the spotlight.
Royal weddings are typically attended by a few celebrities, but they're generally not as star-studded as Harry and Meghan's.
It's a testament to the strength of Meghan's Hollywood ties that some of the biggest names in the entertainment world made the trip to London for her big day.
For starters, the closest thing that America has to a queen - Oprah Winfrey herself - was in attendance.
Sadly, she didn't give in to the temptation to start handing out cars to the assembled dignitaries.
Of course, Oprah certainly wasn't the only A-lister on hand.
Among the few that publicly confirmed in advance that they would be attending were George and Amal Clooney.
Amal turned heads in a yellow Stella McCartney dress with an asymmetrical train.
The human rights attorney's connection to Meghan is a powerful one - sources say she advised the actress on London hairdressers shortly after Markle made her move to the UK.
Needless to say, ties don't get much stronger than that.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian were also on hand.
Alexis is a co-founder of the social media platform Reddit.
Serena, of course, needs no introduction.
Williams rocked a blush cocktail dress and got into the spirit of a royal wedding with some elaborate headgear.
Speaking of international sports icons, it wouldn't be a major UK social event if the Beckhams weren't in attendance.
Yes, Posh and Becks looked stylish as ever matching black ensembles.
Very subdued. Kim and Kanye would be proud.
Victoria might be pulling double duty today, as its being rumored that the Spice Girls will perform at Harry and Meghan's reception.
It's sort of unfair of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex to pull off such a baller event right at the beginning or wedding season.
Being a bridesmaid in your former dorm mate's ceremony next week just can't measure up, ya know?
Also in attendance were Elton John, Priyanka Chopra, Joss Stone, and of course, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Meghan's onscreen love interest - Suits star Patrick J. Adams - also made the guest list.
He posted a loving tribute to his former co-star on Twitter last night:
"Going to bed now and thinking a lot about the strange surreal and wonderful day my friend Meghan is going to have tomorrow. Meghan - wherever you are - we are so grateful to be here to watch you both take this monumental step together," he wrote, adding:
"Love deeply and live well."
Sound advice, and we're sure both Meghan and Harry took it to heart.
Well, folks, we're just hours away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Predictions for what you can expect as the global media continues to foam at the mouth include:
Yet another rundown of how terrible Meghan's family is; talking head-types pretending anyone actually watched the show Suits; and of course, painstaking second-by-second breakdowns of how the actual ceremony will play out, as though you've never seen a freakin' wedding before.
To be fair, tomorrow's ceremony is sure to be more interesting than royal weddings past, thanks largely to a last-minute curveball thrown by Meghan's lame-ass dad.
As you may have heard, Thomas Markle will not be attending his daughter's wedding for reasons that vary depending on whom you ask/believe.
The most likely explanation seems to be that Thomas is embarrassed that he was busted selling staged paparazzi photos to British media outlets, so he's decided to make the situation worse by bailing on the wedding entirely.
The decision created quite a stir, as Thomas was supposed to symbolically give Meghan away before she joins Harry at the altar.
Fortunately, it wasn't long before a suitable plan B emerged.
This morning it was reported that Prince Charles would walk Meghan down the aisle, but now it seems that's only partially true.
CNN is now claiming that Meghan will "make a bold feminist statement" by proceeding down the first stretch of the aisle "unescorted."
Of course, actual solitude is for peasants, and royals are never really alone, even when they're "alone."
So when CNN says "unescorted" they really mean Meghan will be joined by her bridesmaids and page boys, "with a senior church figure walking ahead."
The Donald's favorite news network also points out that Charles is no stranger to the task of walking blushing brides down the aisle.
In 2016, he escorted Alexandra Knatchbull during her wedding to Thomas Hooper - and who could forget the famed Knatchbull-Hooper wedding?
Just kidding, we have no idea who these people are.
Anyway, it's cool that Meghan is using her time on the world's biggest stage to make a statement that's sure to inspire other young women.
But our favorite part of this story might be the fact that Harry's grandfather, 96-year-old Prince Philip, will be in attendance less than two months after undergoing hip surgery.
We're sure he'll be there primarily to support his grandson and new granddaughter-in-law.
But we like to think he's at least partially motivated by a desire to make Thomas Markle look like a little bitch.
Meghan Markle has shocked the world.
We're barely even exaggerating here.
Nearly the entire world has moderate to major interest in Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry tomorrow, which means millions and millions of people are likely surprised by what the bride-to-be just decided.
Kensington Palace announced on Friday that Markle has asked Prince Charles to carry out the second most important duty of anyone at her ceremony tomorrow.
(The most important, of course, being Harry's job of vow recital and bride kissing.)
He'll be walking her down the aisle.
"Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel on her Wedding Day,” the Palace statement reads, concluding:
“The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way."
Markle had hoped her father would give her away to Harry, but he recently underwent a heart procedure and cannot make the trip.
Most observers had assumed that Markle would therefore be walked down the aisle by her mother.
We can't help but therefore wonder whether this last-minute change was truly Markle's decision... or if it was forced upon her by the Palace, which may not want any members of Markle's family front and center for this monumental occasion.
(Markle's mom hasn't done or said anything controversy. But the former actress has been slammed left and right by her half-brother and half-sister, neither of whom are invited to the wedding.
An insider insists to People Magazine, however, that Markle is behind this surprising decision.
“It was Meghan’s wish and she is grateful for the Prince of Wales to be doing it,” this source claims.
Charles, of course, is the father of Prince William and Prince Harry -- but he is not without his own history of scandal.
He infamously cheated on Princess Diana prior to splitting from the beloved Royal many decades ago.
Thomas Markle, meanwhile, lives a rather reclusive life in Mexico.
He isn't especially close with his daughter, but he doesn't have a bad relationship with her, either.
Aside from his unfortunate health concerns, Thomas was at the center of controversy last week after admitting that he accepted money from the paparazzi in exchange for staged photos.
He likely didn't mean any real harm by agreeing to this arrangement, but making oneself into a public spectacle is a giant no-no in the universe of the Royal Family.
Said Markle, through a spokesperson, after her dad officially backed out of the wedding:
"Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.
"I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday."
A global audience will be tuning in for the event, which has sort of become a nightmare for one of its participants.
“This poor girl. Your wedding, everyone says, ‘It’s your day. It’s your day,’” said Amy Schumer this week on Australia’s Fitzy & Wippa podcast. “She’s like, ‘No it’s not.'
"She has to meet all these foreign dignitaries she’s never met before. There’s so much pressure. Can you imagine having a worse wedding?"
Not really, no.
We hope the ceremony goes as smoothly as possible on Saturday and we hope Markle has the bes time EVER on her honeymoon.
She deserves it.
In case you somehow haven't heard by now, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be married on Saturday with their loved ones looking on.
Meghan's family won't be there, of course, but we assume they'll check it out on TV if there's nothing else on.
Anyway, the ceremony is sure to feature all the glitz and glamor and bedazzled, horse-drawn carriages that have made previous royal weddings so memorable.
But this time there's a giant elephant in the room in the room, and he's wearing a diaper.
Just ten weeks after she says "I do," Meghan will turn 37.
That's certainly not old, by any means, and anyone with functioning eyeballs can see that Meghan is a gorgeous woman who could convincingly play a character a decade her junior.
Unfortunately, it's a sad fact of human anatomy that the uterus is incapable of fooling a casting director.
That's our very idiotic way of saying that if Harry and Meghan want kids, they better work quickly.
And according to a new report from Radar Online, they're planning to do exactly that.
“Harry and Meghan want to get pregnant as quickly as possible after their wedding,” a source tells the site.
“They both know that as Meghan gets older, it can get increasingly harder to conceive – and they are both keenly aware of her vulnerability to health complications and the chance of miscarriage the older she gets.”
And, of course, they're both well aware of what's at stake.
If Meghan produces a male heir within the first year of marriage, her family will be gifted with four stout pack mules and a fowl of their choosing.
If she fails, she'll be locked in the Tower of London, where she'll remain until a knight of virtue true slays the two-headed hydra.
We haven't looked any of this stuff up, but we feel perfectly comfortable putting it out on the internet because we never learned how to be responsible.
In all seriousness, the insider adds that while there's "no chance" that Harry would have held off on marrying Meghan if she couldn't bear children, the couple has already consulted with a fertility expert who has assured them that all systems are go.
“Meghan has always looked after herself by eating healthily, and doing a lot of exercise including yoga,” says the source.
“Being in optimum health increases any woman’s chances of conceiving, and someone in Meghan’s shape should especially have no problem in that area," the insider adds.
“The only issue is that she knows she is heading for the big 4-0, so knows the sooner she gets pregnant the better.”
As you've probably heard by now, Meghan's siblings and father are all terrible, so it's comforting to know she'll soon have a family of her own.
They say the best revenge is living well.
And the second best revenge is having ridiculously photogenic children.
We're just over two weeks away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and for the most part, everything is falling into place.
The royal invitations have been sent out; the menu is set, and Meghan's gown - which is sure to be extravagant - is reportedly in its final stages of preparation.
Of course, anyone who's ever planned a wedding knows there's no way to prepare for every eventuality.
All anyone can do is take precautions wherever possible, so as to minimize the likelihood of a disaster.
And the happy couple did exactly that by snubbing Meghan's brother and sister.
Actually, Thomas Markle Jr. and Samantha Markle are Meghan's half-brother and sister, but as they've repeatedly shown us in recent weeks, they're full-blown opportunists.
Samantha penned a tell-all about Meghan, even though she reportedly hasn't spent any time with the princess-to-be in over a decade.
As for Thomas, he accused Meghan of tearing her family apart in a hilariously over-the-top interview.
And the melodrama doesn't end there.
Today, In Touch Weekly published an open letter from Thomas, in which he implores Harry to call off the wedding before it's too late!
“As more time passes to your royal wedding, it became very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history,” the 51-year-old writes.
“Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.”
He goes on to accuse Meghan of basically conning the Royals:
“I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees,” Thomas argues.
“Meghan’s attempt to act the part of a princess like a below C average Hollywood actress is getting old."
Thomas then repeats one of the most damaging - and demonstrably false - claim about Meghan, insisting that she used her father for his money and left him destitute:
"What kind of person starts out by using her own father until he’s bankrupt, then forgets about him in Mexico leaving him broke, over mostly all her debts. And when it’s time to pay him back she forgets her own father like she never knew him," Thomas says.
“It’s very apparent that her tiny bit of Hollywood fame has gone to her head,” he continues.
“Not to mention, to top it all off, she doesn’t invite her own family and instead invites complete strangers to the wedding. Who does that? You and the royal family should put an end to this fake fairytale wedding before it’s too late.”
Like, she's becoming a princess, so it's almost literally a fairytale wedding - but is Thomas aware that that's generally considered a favorable description of a nuptial ceremony?
When people object to a wedding, it's usually because they're pregnant with the groom's baby or something, not because the whole thing is too reminiscent of a Disney movie.
But hey, maybe Harry will heed Thomas' warning and call off his wedding 17 days before the ceremony.
Just kidding, he's more likely to have Thomas beheaded as part of the after-dinner entertainment.
We're just weeks away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and royal insiders say the preparations are proceeding apace.
Of course, not everyone is pleased with the news updates coming out of Kensington Palace.
Harry and Meghan's invitations were sent out last week, and while estimates on the size of the guest list have varied widely, sources concur that several members of Meghan's immediate family were snubbed.
Meghan's sketchy half-sister, Samantha Markle, has already complained that she didn't receive an invitation.
Although we can't imagine that came as much of a surprise, as Samantha has basically been making a career of trash-talking her sister ever since the world learned Meghan was dating Harry.
And unfortunately, she's not the only sketchy Markle sibling.
Meghan has a half-brother named Thomas Markle Jr., and he's also been throwing shade for anyone who cares to listen.
In fact, his assessments of Meg might be even more brutal than Samantha's - but remarkably, Thomas still believes his invitation is in the mail.
"She’s clearly forgotten her roots. It’s torn my entire family apart," Thomas recently told The Daily Mail.
"Meg likes to portray herself as a humanitarian, a people’s person and a charitable person but she is none of those things to her family."
Thomas went on to claim that Meghan is a master con artist who has successfully pulled the wool over the Royal Family's eyes:
"She is giving the greatest performance of her life. She is acting phony," Thomas says.
"I’ve read that Meg wants to be like Diana. Diana was worshipped by everyone in the world. She was loved for the right reasons. That’s what Meg wants, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. She’s not genuine like Diana."
At this stage, we'd like to remind you that despite repeatedly trashing his half-sister in the press, Thomas Markle still believes he'll be rubbing elbows with royalty next month:
"I haven’t got an invite yet but I do expect to get one," he said.
"It would be really nice [to get an invitation] and it would mean a lot. I do expect one and I’m looking forward to going. I don’t see why not. It is what it is. I am family, estranged or not.’
Markle Jr’s ex-wife Tracey Dooley and son Tyler, 26, have already spoken with the press and revealed that they were snubbed.
They might want to have a talk with Thomas and help him manage his expectations.
When Emily Ratajkowski takes off her clothing, it's not exactly a surprise.
But when Emily Ratajkowski goes out and gets married without giving the public a heads-up, this definitely qualifies as a surprise.
The 26-year-old model and occasional actress took fans by total shocked on Friday when she announced via her Instagram story that she has exchanged vows with some dude named.
He is reportedly an actor and a producer and the two got hitched a few weeks ago at City Hall in New York City.
“I got married today,” Ratajowski wrote on the selfie above, which features she and her husband looking very cute and awfully cozy.
In another snapshot, Bear-McClard smooches the model’s cheek as the couple holds hands.
We don't see any sort of huge rock on Ratajkowski's finger, but her new life partner flashed two rings on his fingers that read “EM” and “RATA.”
How sweet, right?
We don't know a ton about this couple or its history, but People Magazine talked to Oscar Boyson, who produced Good Time with Bear-McClard and is a partner at Elara Pictures.
This person tells the publication that Ratajowski’s husband is “the sweetest grape on the vine.”
So there you have it.
Sounds like a solid guy to us.
As a caption to the picture immediately above, Ratajkowski surrounded the letters "ny" with two diamond ring emojis.
As for what she donned for the ceremony and her big day, Ratajowski did not go the traditional route.
Far from it, in fact.
The controversial brunette instead rocked a mustard-colored power pantsuit ... straight off the rack from Zara.
According to People once again, Emily belted the $119 long double-breasted jacket from the brand and paired it with matching flared $69.90 trousers.
So she spent around $200 total on her wedding outfit.
We love it.
In response to the big news, social media users wrote of their very pleasant surprise on Twitter and Instagram.
“Congrats baby,” Orange Is the New Black star Jackie Cruz wrote, for example, while Kim Kardashian’s ex-assistant Stephanie Shepard also shared her well wishes by commenting with two simply emojis.
Ratajkowski and boyfriend of over four years, Jeff Magid, broke up just a few weeks ago.
Or so we had been led to believe.
A few photos of Bear-McClard and Ratajowski emerged online around that time, but they didn't make it official... until now!
Via a wedding!
Now that's how you go public, people!
It's a sentence we never thought we'd write, but here we go:
The comedian got hitched on February 13, 2018 to celebrity chef Chris Fischer, surprising fans by exchanging vows in Malibu on a Tuesday evening.
Approximately 80 guests were in attendance, including a few familiar faces featured here.
Indeed, Schumer has uploaded a number of beautiful, romantic and flat-out funny photos from her big day to Instagram.
We've collected them all below. Check each one out now and then send Schumer and Fischer your very best wishes!

5. We're Newlyweds!
Ellen Page didn't just flip the calendar to 2018 this week.
She flipped her marital status from single to...
The actress took social media followers and fans around the globe by extreme shock on Wednesday night when she confirmed that she recently exchanged vows with girlfriend Emma Portner.
“Can’t believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife,” the former Juno star wrote on Wednesday, tagging Portner in a post that included one very special photo.
The photo featured Page and Portner's hands, fingers barely touching, wedding rings on full display for all to see.
Portner also announced the surprise marriage on her Instagram page, using the same sweet snapshot and writing as a caption:
“@ellenpage I LOVE YOU.”
The actress first started sharing photos with Portner on social media over the summer.
A teacher at the Broadway Dance Center, the new Mrs. Ellen Page originally hails from Ottawa, Ontario, according to her biography on the dance school’s website.
Page and Portner have a number of interpretive dance videos online together, while the newlyweds have also occasionally sang cover songs as a duo.
Before romancing Portner, the Oscar nominee went steady with Samantha Thomas from September 2015 to early 2017.
In 2014, Page came out as gay at a Human Rights Campaign event in an inspiring speech that earned her a standing ovation at the time.
"I'm here today because I am gay," Page told the crowd, adding:
"And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility."
She concluded as follows:
"You have ideas planted in your head, thoughts you never had before, that tell you how you have to act, how you have to dress and who you have to be.
"I have been trying to push back, to be authentic, to follow my heart, but it can be hard."
Shortly after making this announcement, Page appeared opposite Ellen DeGeneres on the latter's talk show and said:
"I knew I would be a happier person. I knew that I was gonna feel better and I did not anticipate just how happy I would feel in just every aspect of my life.
"Just an ease and a comfort and it's really been quite extraordinary to feel just the shift. It was pretty much overnight."
That's so wonderful to hear.
And so is this news about her marriage.
Congrats to Ellen Page and Emma Portner!
Kaitlyn Bristowe may have gotten her happily ever after with Shawn Booth after they became a thing on The Bachelorette Season 11.
That was back in 2015, and you don't need to be a Bachelor spoilers expert to know these things rarely last as long as they have.
As far as reality TV stars go, weddings generally follow months, not years later, so fans have been speculating when the wedding will take place at all.
But what if it already happened?
In a surprising turn of events, Kaitlyn may have accidentally revealed that she is already married during a recent helping of her Off The Vine podcast.
Fans of the star took to Reddit when the reality TV star made a jab about the possibility of her already being married to Shawn.
Not the case, she said, apparently confirming that her fans would be first to know ... once there is something to know. Says Kait:
"I promise, when we have a wedding date you will all know, I will announce it on the podcast, you will never have to question me again."
The bombshell came after the advertisements, and there's reason to believe the end of the ads caught her mid-conversation with Claudia Oshry.
"Maybe we are already married because I needed a green card to work on Broadway!" she said with a laugh.
It's not news that Bristowe can be seen on Broadway up until December 30 at the August Wilson Theatre, but could this have been a slip of the tongue with her pal that confirmed the news?
It would be a stretch, and while we love Kaitlyn, it would be very out of character for her to want to have a low-key wedding.
It's more likely that Kaitlyn was having a joke and trying to make Claudia laugh, but we're sure Kaitlyn will clarify the comments in due course.
As expected, though, fans lost their minds and were on the fence about the comments and what they meant.
"There's a tiny, tiny chance that it's just true but it just doesn't make sense, logically, and it doesn't fit with Kaitlyn's personality."
"I love her, but the girl loves attention, and I don't see her getting married quietly making just a passing comment about it," said one fan.
Another fan chimed in, saying "Kaitlyn sometimes says things off the cuff on this show. I hope she would understand that if this is true, saying publicly that you got married to get a green card/stay in the country is technically fraud."
"If the US government wants to come after you, they can, and they won't care if you have actually been in a relationship for a while."
Given the fact that Kaitlyn has been talking about having two wedding dresses for the momentous occasion, it would not make sense for her to be already married.
Yes, there is the slight chance that she is married, and milking the publicity train in the aftermath, but it would still very out of character.
They don't do Bachelor Nation weddings low-key. They are elegant affairs that are littered with flashing lights as everyone poses in front of the cameras.
As always, we'll keep you up to speed on any further developments on the marriage front!
What do you think about all of this?
Sound off below!
Unless you've been living under a rock - like, WAY FAR DOWN under a rock - then you are likely aware of the major news this week:
The very long-gestating rumor is now an even more exciting reality, as the Royal Family itself released the following statement on Sunday evening:
His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family.
Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents.
In the subsequent 24 hours since this announcement was made, the Internet has been blowing up with congratulatory messages, quotes from various British people and enticing tidbits of information.
Did you know Harry proposed over a roasted chicken dinner, for instance?
Or that Markle's engagement ring is partly comprised of diamonds once worn by Princess Diana?
Or even that Markle's pet corgi apparently loves Harry?
The beloved couple opened up about these pressing pieces of information, along with plenty more, in their first-sit down interview as an engaged couple.
And now Markle and Harry have revealed two more major bombshells:
- Their wedding date.
- Their wedding venue.
At a special briefing at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, official Royal sources confirmed the Wedding of the Decade will take place in May at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
During said briefing, the couple’s Kensington Palace spokesman added that the soon-to-be newlyweds are “extremely grateful following the warm public response” to their new status.
Added this spokesperson:
“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year.
"They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”
Look for Queen Elizabeth to be in attendance at the event, which will be treated like a national holiday across Great Britain.
The day will be “shaped so that members of the public” feel like a part of it, the Palace explained, saying:
“This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy and reflect the characters” of both the bride and groom.
Markle, meanwhile, will be baptized and confirmed in the Church of England prior to the nuptials.
She's already going through the process of becoming a British citizen.
In a wide-ranging interview with BBC News, Markle confirmed yesterday that she is basically retired from acting.
The couple also said they were set up by a mutual friend and that they've been taken aback by some of the racial harassment that has stemmed from Markle's mixed heritage.
"At the end of the day I am proud of who I am and where I have come from," said Markle, adding:
"We have never put any focus on that, we have just focused on who we are as a couple."
As for what other Royal family think of the engagement?
“William and I are absolutely thrilled,” Kate Middleton told reporters today at the Foundling Museum in London.
“It’s such exciting news. It’s a really happy time for any couple and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment.”
Middleton, of course, is expecting her third child with Prince William in April.
What a spring it will be for our friends across the Atlantic!
There were rumored fights, hesitations and cancelations.
But then, at the end of the day, there were simply the sound of wedding bells.
That's right, Teen Mom fans, Jenelle Evans is now a married woman!
The veteran MTV personality and the father of her latest child exchanged vows on Saturday at their home in North Carolina.
There had been chatter that a fight just prior to the rehearsal dinner had caused Jenelle to squash the ceremony, which wouldn't have come across as a major surprise to anyone familiar with her temper.
But cooler heads and true love prevailed.
According to E! News, Evans wore a white lace wedding dress with a sweetheart cut, rocking her hair half-up and accessorizing everything with long, drooping earrings and a necklace.
Eason, meanwhile, donned a white suit jacket with a grayish-blue shirt and a black tie.
Friends, family members and loved ones gathered for a rustic-themed reception and ate a cake that was made to look like wood with "D + J" carved into it in the middle of a heart.
Photographer Celeste Call jumped on Instagram to share a few behind-the-scenes moments from the wedding, including snapshots of the bride getting prepared ahead of her big day.
Evans and Eason welcomed nine-month-old daughter Ensley in January and first began dating in September of 2015.
The couple proceeded to announce their engagement via Instagram in February, a development that was also documented on an episode of Teen Mom 2.
Wrote Call as a caption to the first wedding photo posted at the outset of this article:
Jenelle & David post ceremony, congrats! #teenmom #teenmom2 #jenelleevans #abdjs #wedding #weddingdj #djfun #wilmingtonweddings

Jenelle, of course, is the mother of three kids overall: Ensley, Jace Evans and Kaiser Griffith.
She told E! not long before tying the knot that she envisioned role for each child on her special day.
"I definitely think that Ensley will be old enough to be a flower girl alongside David's daughter, Maryssa," Jenelle said, adding:
"While reading our vows, I would like the girls to be part of the bridesmaids and the boys to be part of the groomsmen."
It's unclear at this time whether Jenelle's mother, Barbara, received a wedding invite.
The two have battled over custody of Jace for years.
“I can't forgive someone that's just not going to give me back my son, so, and it's still going on," Jenelle has told Us Weekly.
"It hasn't been resolved. And if I had custody of him now maybe I would have invited her, but I'm not at the moment.”
But that's a scandal for another day.
This occasion is all about Evans and Eason.
"David is such a humble man and has never disrespected me. He can handle me so well," Jenelle says.
"He treats my boys as if they were his own and that's all I ever wanted for me and my family."
CONGRATS TO THE NEWLYWEDS!
Some claim that when Kate Middleton married Prince William back in 2011, Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, received more press coverage than the bride.
Obviously, that’s an exaggeration, but Pippa did receive a lot of attention that day for reasons that still aren’t entirely clear.
We guess it had something to do with Pippa’s butt and the fact that it’s apparently big by British standards.
We imagine the average Englishman pops his monocle and faints dead away if you show him a picture of Kim Kardashian.
Anyway, for whatever reason, many believe that Pippa stole the show from her royal sister, and now it seems Pippa is doing everything she can to avoid a similar fate on her own wedding day.
Pippa will marry hedge fund manager James Matthews in May, and it was initially reported that her wedding would serve as a venue for the first official appearance of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Now, however, sources close to Pippa say she’s instituted a policy to ensure that she won’t be upstaged at her own wedding.
Since arguing with the bride-to-be in the weeks leading up to a wedding can result in instant death-by-eye-gouging, Pippa could have simply said she doesn’t want to see anyone who’s name starts with “M” and ends with “-eghan Markle” at the ceremony.
Instead, she kept up appearances by issuing a broader rule:
Tipsters claim Pippa has announced a strict “no ring, no bring” policy, according to which, no guests will be permitted a plus one unless their married or engaged.
Hilariously, it would also mean that her fiance’s brother, Spencer Matthews, would not be permitted to bring his model girlfriend, Vogue Williams.
Apparently, that’s just fine by Pippa, as Williams is a somewhat of a celebrity in the UK, thanks to her role on the reality show Made in Chelsea.
So Williams is a potential spotlight-stealer, too, but sources say she’s a collateral damage bonus kill for Pippa, who mainly has her sights set on Meghan.
Of course, this whole thing could end up backfiring on Meghan.
There are already rumors that Harry and Meghan are engaged, and even if that’s not the case, Harry still has a few weeks left to pop the question.
Imagine the scenario:
Harry shows up with Meghan; Pippa approaches to give her the boot; Meghan flashes a ring, and says something badass like, “Butt out, Pippa.”
Ryan Murphy would have a Pips vs. Meg miniseries ready to go the next day.
Celebrity weddings are often the dream weddings of ordinary people. Apart from the wardrobe, the setting and decorations are what fans also take into account.
One of the main attractions in a celebrity wedding is the flower decoration including the bride’s bouquet. Flowers are an important part of this memorable occasion and although wedding planners may choose the ones to use for the decorations, the bride often has a say in choosing her bouquet.
So what kinds of flowers make it to a celebrity wedding? Here are some of the not-so-ordinary ones that have graced the most important event in the life of a star. They have also given inspiration to numerous weddings of average couples.
The roses never cease to be a top pick as a wedding flower particularly for celebrities. Not many people know that there are actually around 120 varieties of roses available. Among them are the Rosa Antike and Constance Spry. Whether you want to use just pure roses or mix it with other flowers, you can be sure to achieve a great looking bouquet. The peak season of roses are in spring, summer and autumn.
Celebrity Gabrielle Union’s bouquet featured all ivory white roses when she exchanged I do’s with basketball superstar Dwayne Wade. Actress Marisa Coughlan’s bridal bouquet also had roses mixed with dahlias, freesia and lisianthus. The rose and dahlia combination was also used in the low-standing table centerpieces during Hillary Duff’s wedding to Mike Comrie.
The ranunculus flower features plenty of petals that are balanced on a curved stem and is in bloom during spring, summer and fall. It blends beautifully with most flowers whether you use the closed and open ones. A great way to use this in a wedding bouquet is to mix the open and closed ranunculus with the others.
The white ranunculus was used in the wedding bouquet of Jessica Biel when he married Justin Timberlake. It was also mixed with peonies, roses and sweet peas in the bridal bouquet of Jaime Dugan of “Survivor.”
Peonies are one of the must-have flowers of celebrities. It is fragrant and comes in a variety of colors except blue. The only downside of this flower is its available only during a short period of Spring from April to June and you can find them in most states in the U.S. Imported peonies are also more expensive. Actress Drew Barrymore opted for the colored peonies mixed with garden roses during her wedding while Nicole Richie preferred an all-white peony bouquet.
Clematis is a bell-shaped flower great for cascading bouquets and floral crowns. Its leaves can be included to add a touch of greenery. This flower is best paired with scabiosas, dusty miller, vines & spray roses.
This may sound like a fish specie but this is also a flower from the Ranunculaceae family. The anemones are in full bloom from October through May so even if you get married during the winter season, you can still get it. What makes it so unique is its bluish-black center. It also has no scent hence, best for people with allergies and even as centerpiece for reception tables.
The amaryllis is a winter flower because its peak season is during December through February. Also referred to as a Christmas bloom, it features a full silhouette. If you want a flowing bouquet, the amaryllis is best paired with jasmine vines, evergreen, narcissus and roses.
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna became parents on November 10, 2016.
That was when they welcomed daughter Dream Kardashian into the world.
Now, according to In Touch Weekly, we can reveal the next significant date on the calendar for this controversial couple...
... their wedding date!
An anonymous insider who may or may not actually exist tells the supermarket tabloid that Rob and Chyna will exchange vows on July 17, 2017.
And it doesn't sound as though this date was selected at random, either.
“The number seven is Rob’s lucky number, and he’s extremely superstitious, so picking a date was very important to him,” this insider alleges.
He or she goes on to note that Rob wanted to get married on his birthday, March 17, but Chyna wanted more time to get her body back into shape.
We're not certain if we believe July 17 will be the date on which these two get hitched, but we definitely believe this second part about Blac Chyna.
Ever since becoming a mother for the second time (Chyna is also the parent of a three-old son named King Cairo), the reality star has been posting non-stop on social media about her absolute NEED to lose weight.
She's been painfully keeping followers apprised of her progress on a nearly daily basis.
And she's been very offended by any notion that she has undergone plastic surgery in order to help her meet her goals.
"I posted a picture of my belly yesterday and the only reason it got that flat, you guys, is from breastfeeding and breast pumping and from my body already being small before my pregnancy,” Chyna told fans earlier this month.
Added Chyna at the time:
"If you are pregnant right now, I would highly recommend breastfeeding and breast pumping because it’ll get your weight back down fast."
So this would explain why the chosen wedding date was a "compromise," as explained by In Touch Weekly, which adds:
"Rob doesn’t mind. He’s just excited to marry the woman of his dreams.”
That may come across as an unexpected description to many fans who have tracked the evolution of this romance.
Rob and Chyna have seemingly fought non-stop ever since getting together, most notably on episodes of their absurd reality series.
But they are reportedly living together again and are intent on giving this relationship a real try now that they're parents of a precious little girl.
To find out more about their lives now that Rob and Chyna are parents, you can tune in to their baby special, which airs on E! on Sunday, December 18.
Or you could sit around and watch paint dry.
It would be just as exciting as an experience.
After a whirlwind courtship even by her family's standards, Counting On star Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo got married on Saturday.
Jinger's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, confirmed the wedding news with a short video on the family's official website November 5.
See their announcement below!
"We are so excited for Jinger and Jeremy ... they just got married and they are such a sweet couple," proud father Jim Bob said afterward.
"Jinger is one of the most dynamic, beautiful, Godly girls that I know, and Jeremy is such a passionate, loving, kind spiritual leader."
"Match made in heaven."
Smiling by her husband's side as always, Michelle Duggar added in the brief video, "Congratulations, Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo!"
"We love you guys!"
Jinger's older sister Jessa Duggar also shared a congratulatory message, posting the Instagram picture above of the smiling newlyweds.
"Ahhhhhh! So happy for my sister and brother-in-law! The wedding was beautiful!" Jessa wrote, teasing a photo of the happy spouses.
And plugging JingerAndJeremy (dot) com, it would appear. True love is great, but the Duggars are an enterprising bunch, aren't they?
In any event, the couple tied the knot in front of their closest friends and family members at John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Ark.
The Counting On tandem got engaged in July of this year, just one month after they announced they were officially a courting couple.
Jinger and Jeremy's courtship raised more than a few eyebrows from the very beginning, given the breakneck pace they were seemingly on.
So intense was the talk of the couple going ham and breaking courtship rules that there was even a Jinger Duggar pregnant rumors.
That, of course, was bogus. But given that they're now husband and wife, we would not be shocked if they got around to that promptly.
In announcing their engagement this summer, the pair said in a statement, "So excited to share this news that we are now engaged."
"From both of us, thank you all for the countless well-wishes we've received during the courtship."
"It has been an incredible journey so far and we are excited about serving Christ together in the coming days," Jinger added.
"We are so excited to take this next step in spending our lives together. We are so grateful for how the Lord has brought us together."
At 22, Jinger Duggar Vuolo is the sixth oldest of Jim Bob and Michelle's 19 kids, behind Josh, Jana, John David, Jill and Jessa Duggar.
Interestingly, twins Jana and John David, 26, are the only two of the six who have not been in a serious relationship (that we know of).
Jill and Jessa got married in 2014 and 2015, respectively, and frequently commented on how Jinger's courtship was fast, and different.
So what's next for JinJer?
The TLC mainstay plans to move from her hometown of Tontitown, Arkansas, to Laredo, Texas, after the wedding to work with Vuolo.
An ordained pastor, the former soccer pro has devoted his life to his ministry, something that Jinger's family undoubtedly approves of.
Despite Jim Bob's ridiculous demands and attempts to control the two, he can't really complain; Vuolo seems like a stand-up dude.
Of Jeremy, Jinger said that he was the answer to her prayers. "I asked God for this in a future spouse," she recalled earlier this year.
"He has done far and above anything I could have ever imagined or dreamed in bringing Jeremy into my life," she gushed.
Shia LaBeouf has reportedly gotten married.
In the most Shia LaBeouf way possible.
According to TMZ insiders, the actor exchanged vows over the weekend with Mia Goth.
In Las Vegas. With Elvis Presley officiating the wedding.
The couple got hitched at an establishment called Viva Las Vegas, which a chapel known for uniquely-themed weddings.
Some of the options on the venue's so-called menu, for example, include Elvis and Alice Cooper packages. There are also generic gangster and gladiator themes.
Because who would not want to be all gangster, literally, when getting married?
But anyway. Back to Shia and Mia:
TMZ reports that they chose a combination Elvis and Hawaiian theme, Mia even riding to her big day alongside an Elvis impersonator in a pink Cadillac.
Sounds about right for a guy who often gets arrested and who once did this:
Seriously, did you watch that?
Please stop what you are doing and make sure you click PLAY.
Goth and LaBeouf have quite the history together.
They got engaged in March, but LaBeouf was accused of assault against Goth just over a year ago, in July of 2016.
The altercation allegedly took place in Germany, with witnesses saying the twosome got into a pretty big argument outside of a hotel.
The argument led to a physical confrontation, which left Goth with a black eye.
Locals supposedly broke up the fight and drove LaBeouf to the airport, where he went on record as saying he would have killed Goth if he had stayed.
There's even video of the incident:
This one is less entertaining than the video we shared previously of LaBeouf.
But, hey, whatever. The stars appear to have worked it out.
The newlyweds started dating in 2012, after working together on the controversial movie Nymphomaniac.
Aside from the aforementioned kerfluffle, they have remained relatively under the radar for a Hollywood couple.
We have no idea where Mia and Shia will go on their honeymoon, but we're guessing it will be someplace unusual.
Congrats to the happy couple, right?
Join us in sending them your best wishes.
After more than four years of dating, Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney got married in a lavish ceremony in Florida over the weekend.
There was a time when it looked as though Hurricane Matthew would force Maci and Taylor to postpone the ceremony, but miraculously, the weather cooperated and the nuptials went off without a hitch.
Maci and Ryan have yet to post any pics on their social media pages, but we're sure that'll change once they return form their honeymoon.
In the meantime, their family and friends have posted plenty of photos for your viewing enjoyment.
So crack a Bud Light and enjoy the following gallery of Maci and Taylor's big day:

Nikki Ferrell has finally found herself a man that actually loves her.
If you recall, she won The Bachelor Season 18, but she did not win the heart of Juan Pablo Galavis.
He is hands down the worst suitor in the history of the franchise.
Something seemed totally off with the way he treated Ferrell and that's why the relationship didn't pan out.
Ferrell and Galavis even appeared on Couples Therapy to try and right the ship, but it was clear there was just nothing there.
We previously reported that Nikki was engaged to Tyler Vanloo back in January and the pictures were super cute.
How amazing do they look together?
Could you imagine Juan Pablo Galavis being as romantic as that?
Galavis knows absolutely nothing about romance.
Nikki married Tyler on Saturday.
Have a look at one of the pictures from the wedding below!
Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you. Andi Dorfman was part of the celebrations.
Talk about keeping it in The Bachelor family. Right?
Nikki had known Tyler for a long time before they got married.
It sure seems like he was the one who got away from her, but at least they are now a happily married couple.
Nikki kept her fans up to speed with what was going on in the days leading up to her wedding.
She even uploaded a picture of her marriage license to Instagram.
We are super pleased that Nikki has moved on from Juan Pablo.
If you watch The Bachelor online, you probably already know that the dude just didn't seem like a very nice person.
It's for the best that Nikki moved on.
What do you think about all of this?

There went the bride!
Following rumors that Chelsea Houska would exchange vows this weekend with longtime boyfriend Cole DeBoer, the Teen Mom 2 star has gone ahead and done just that:
The couple, who is expecting its very first child together, tied the knot in front of friends and family on Saturday afternoon.
Among those in attendance was Houska's seven-year daughter, Aubrey, whose father is the bride's ex-boyfriend Adam Lind.
Houska kept the announcement of her marriage relatively quiet and simple, sharing a picture on Instagram today that depicted the newlyweds with Aubree.
"Mr and Mrs DeBoer," she captioned the romantic photo.
Here it is:
Two days prior to the wedding, the 25-year old MTV personality posted a pic on Instagram of two large bunches of her favorite flowers, sunflowers and proteas.
She wrote at the time:
"I don't know what I did to deserve this man, but I am thankful every single day. @coledeboer beyond proud to be able to call you my husband soon!"
It was this post and this message that prompted wedding chatter around the Internet.
Houska met DeBoer at a gas station and the two started dating back in August 2014.
Yup, they've been together for over two years, which is a lifetime for most couples featured on Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2 or Teen Mom OG.
The two got engaged in November 2015, with the reality star confirming the joyous news in an Instagram post.
"He's stuck now!" she captioned an image that showed her flashing her engagement ring alongside her new fiancé.
"Cole brought me to a personal spot in the woods where he had photos lining the tree," she told MTV of his sweet proposal, adding in detail:
"The pictures hanging were of him and I and the three of us as a family."
Sounds pretty much perfect to us.
Houska added that DeBoer asked Aubreyl "if it was OK if he married her mommy" and she immediately said yes, was extremely excited, and gave him a big hug."
Chelsea went on to announce in July that the couple was expecting its first child; he or she due in February 2017.
"We are beyond excited for this journey and can't wait to share it with you all!" she wrote as a caption to a Instagram photo of the growing family.
"Big sister Aubree is also extremely excited, and it's no secret that she is hoping for a girl haha."
Those who watch Teen Mom 2 online witnessed the couple's engagement and wedding planning, as it was closely documented on the most recent season of the hit reality show.
We send Chelsea and Cole our very best wishes!
Here's to a lifetime of happiness!
Hey girl ... we have some bad news for you. Hope you're sitting down, because Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes secretly tied the knot.
Oh yes, the couple is married!
The actor and his love of more than five years quietly exchanged vows - earlier this year - among a small group of family and friends.
So quiet was the affair that no one knew about it until recently, when celeb news magazine Us reported the event in its latest issue.
Pretty typical for these two.
“Eva and Ryan have always felt like a married couple,” says a source close to Mendes. “They are infatuated with each other.”
Like the tabloids "calling" Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce, gossip publications have been marrying these two off for some time.
Even a stopped clock is correct twice a day, as they say, and this is most definitely your big week if you're a celebrity news magazine.
Gosling, 35, and Mendes, 42, both starred in the 2012 drama, The Place Beyond the Pines, and have always been a private couple.
It's a rare feat to find out anything about the two personally, even regarding life events such as engagements, marriages, and births.
Earlier this month, Gosling did admit that when he's away working, his mind keeps drifting back home to his girls - all three of them.
“I’m a lucky man,” he gushed, regarding Eva and daughters Esmeralda, 2, and Amada, 4 months, at the Toronto International Film Festival.
“We couldn’t be happier. They are so sweet.”
Ryan and Eva welcomed their second child earlier this year, and like their first baby, they did so with remarkably little fanfare.
Gosling is very protective of his ladies - not just in the sense of privacy from the public eye, but in ways any parents can relate to.
He revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show:
“I take my little girl to the park, and we always write her name in chalk, and some kid has been erasing her name and writing their name over it."
"And this kid has access to an unfair amount of chalk. My little girl doesn't care; she's like, 'Well, let's just chalk anywhere else.'"
"And I'm like, 'No! They're disrespecting your mother because she gave you this name, and they're erasing it," he recalls.
"So the only way to really get back at them is to erase their name. And not disrespect their mother, but definitely put her on notice.'"
Well, no disrespect to your significant others, ladies, but please be on notice that one of Hollywood's finest is officially off the market.
Try not to weep openly at school or work.
Ray J made it very clear this week:
He has never sent an X-rated text message to Malia Obama.
The artist, reality star and former Kim Kardashian sex tape partner then went out and made something else very clear:
He will love and cherish Princess Love forever.
That's right, these two are now married!
The couple - whose up-and-down relationship has been chronicled on VH1'sLove & Hip Hop: Hollywood - exchanged vows Friday night in front of 150 of their closest family member and friends at the Vibiana in Los Angeles.
A rep for the singer has confirmed the news to People.
"I just want her to have the time of her life and remember it as the best day in the world," Ray J told the magazine prior to the big event.
"Even when I wasn't with her, I told my friends 'She the one, she the one.' It was just something about how I felt when she was around me."
Awwww! This is why we adore Ray J.
The guy is just so open and honest. He keep it real.
"He's the only person I've ever been with that I couldn't see myself without," Princess Love added.
It's worth mentioning that she wore a beaded Lazaro ball-gown for the ceremony.
We're guessing it went very well with her engagement ring, which you can actually see here, nice and close up:
The Game served as a groomsmen for Ray J, while his famous sister Brandy was in Love’s bridal party.
They down the aisle as Anthony Hamilton sang "The Point of It All” and Brandy sang a rendition of “At Last” at the reception.
Ray J proposed to Love with the above-pictured 8-carat halo diamond last December on a private tarmac in front of their loved ones.
It was the culmination of a roller coaster romance, one that seemed threatened at one point by Princess Love being arrested for assaulting Ray J.
There was also the ugly fight over a pair of Maltese puppies after a split in October of 2014.
But, hey: you can't fight true love.
We should know this by now.
The upcoming season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood will feature a look at just how close Ray J and Princess Love came to NOT getting married, as you can see in the following trailer:
We never had a doubt about these two, however.
There was just something about them.
Might they end up like the couples featured in the following gallery? Sure, anything is possible.
But might they also end up old and cranky and sitting on side-by-side rocking chairs together at the age of 85? Yes. That is also possible.
The unthinkable has happened.
Okay, maybe it's not that big a stretch, but with George Clooney married and now Derek Jeter, perennial bachelors are dropping like flies.
In any case, the future baseball Hall of Fame member married model Hannah Davis in St. Helena, California, on Saturday, July 9.
The attractive couple tied the knot in a romantic ceremony on a golf course at Meadowood Napa Valley Resort, according to reports.
Sports Illustrated beauty Davis, 26, looked stunning in a high-neck gown custom-made by Vera Wang; Jeter, 42, rocked a black suit.
“After the ceremony, they walked around holding hands and looking ecstatic,” a source tells Us of the New York Yankee legend's wedding.
This is the first marriage for both.
Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis got engaged in October 2015, news they kept private other than him using the word “fiancée” on his website.
The couple first started dating in 2012, shortly after Jeter’s three-year relationship with Friday Night Lights actress Minka Kelly ended.
He has previously been linked to Vanessa Lachey, Jordana Brewster, Mariah Carey, and numerous other stars he made sign NDAs.
We don't know that for sure, but for a celebrity with about 47 high-profile girlfriends, it's curious no one has ever said a word about him.
It could also be that Jeter is a class act on and off the field, and that there's simply nothing negative or salacious to say about the man.
Davis' camp certainly agrees.
“Their relationship works because they are both supportive and sweet to each other,” a source close to the supermodel says.
“They almost never fight.”
Another source added, “Derek is totally in love with her. He thinks she’s beautiful, sweet and sexy! All of Derek’s friends are jealous."
That Hannah's super hot?
Well, yeah, but more so that they're so smitten with one another, always so happy and have the perfect relationship ... seriously.
Don't expect to hear about it from them, though. Davis, like Jeter, seems to prioritize keeping her personal life out of the tabloids.
“I feel like I have to share every other part of my life,” the Caribbean-born beauty told Maxim in an interview this past March.
“It’s that one part that’s a bit of a mystery to people, but that’s the way we want it. The only way to protect it is not to talk about it.”
Congrats to the newlyweds!
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are gunning for a seven-figure wedding special with his Momager at the helm, a new report indicates.
Previously, the controversial, expectant and newly-engaged couple had insisted that their upcoming nuptials would be a private affair.
Well, so much for that, TMZ reports this morning.
According to the celebrity news mainstay, RobChyna now wants a TV special for their wedding ... and wants the Kardashians present!
Do we even need to explain the motivation?
Original plans for a Rob and Blac Chyna reality show put the focus squarely on her pregnancy, with the wedding not part of the package.
That's because it will be its own TV event.
Kim Kardashian, as we know and Rob and Blac certainly know, scored millions of dollars from her ill-fated wedding to Kris Humphries.
Millions of dollars. For 72 days of marriage.
There's no way Rob and Blac kould kommand Kim Kardashian kash, but they feel they kan score what Kris got, which is still seven figures.
Hard to blame them for that rationale.
Incredibly, and yet not, Chyna is on board to let Kris Jenner handle the wedding planning and TV production elements of this bonanza.
Hey, she's a realist, and Kris is Kris.
After all, if there's anything the Jenner matriarch can do, it's bilk every last advertising dollar out of contrived, nonsensical family events.
If you can't beat her, join her, right?
There are also rumors that Kris cut a deal with Blac to stay married to Rob for a certain number of years in exchange for her services.
Hilarious as that sounds, it wouldn't surprise us given the disaster that was Kim and Kris' fairy tale wedding ... and the fact that it's Chyna.
These two are cute, sure, and his family has come around a bit in recent weeks once the initial furor over their courtship died down.
Still, does anyone really think this will last?
Mariah Carey is getting married to James Packer... maybe. If she can find the time.
The 46-year-old singing sensation had a chat with Sharon Osbourne for Entertainment Tonight this week, addressing plans about her future.
Will it include a wedding?
Maybe, but Carey said she has "a lot on my plate" these days.
Her professional plate, she means. Not her personal plate... or else we'd be close to hearing wedding bells.
Surely, if she was serious about the whole thing she would pick a date and work her schedule around it.
Even if that meant pushing it a bit further down the line.
It kind of raises questions about whether everything is going well between the singer and her VERY rich fiance.
If you plan on getting married, you get married. You don't get all sketchy about it.
Could there be trouble in paradise?
Might it be down to Nick Cannon refusing to sign divorce papers?
Yes, word came out earlier this week that Cannon was flat out refusing to sign the divorce papers.
This could very well be preventing any potential union between Carey and James Packer.
It is pretty odd that he's so against signing the papers because it's preventing both parties from moving on from the failed relationship. These two seemed to get along very well for exes.
There's also the possibility that this is all a ruse to get people to tune into her eight-part E! reality series, Mariah's World.
Shows on E! rely heavily on constructed drama. It's the home of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, after all.
It hasn't made us any more excited for the show and viewers will probably be furious if the show has Cannon refusing to sign the divorce papers all season long.
Carey thinks she's GLAAD's most famous celebrity, so expect similar comments about her being the most famous person in reality TV.
What do you think of all the drama? Hit the comments!
After a six-month engagement, Sister Wives star Maddie Brown married Caleb Brush over the weekend.
Maddie's dad, Kody Brown, officiated the wedding, which took place in Bozeman, Montana.
Her mom Janelle, one of Kody's four wives, was also in attendance with the rest of the family.
Maddie wore a traditional white strapless wedding gown while Caleb wore khakis.
Yes, he wore khakis to his own wedding.
"I can cut a rug on a dance floor in khakis better than a monkey suit," he told Us Weekly.
Listen, I could certainly dance more effectively barefoot and in biker shorts, but that doesn't mean it's appropriate for a wedding.
But Maddie didn't seem bothered, so no biggie.
We saw Maddie announce her engagement on the reality show during its season premiere last month.
"I'm pretty excited," the bride told Us. "It doesn't feel real."
The couple posted the video below to the Sister Wives Facebook page, shot just after the rehearsal dinner.
In the vid, they thank fans for support and all the marriage advice.
Advice like, perhaps, please oh please don't bring other women into your marriage like your mom and dad did?
At this point, it seems Maddie and Caleb don't plan to go that route.
“I’m not one to live plural marriage,” she said during a TLC special last November.
Apparently, Maddie took one look at the crackpot life of her father with his multiple wives and 17 kids between them and said, NOPE, not for me.
Good thing, because a court recently denied Kody's request to decriminalize polygamy in the state of Utah.

Allison Williams married Ricky Van Veen on Saturday evening, wearing a dress by Oscar de la Renta and exchanging vows Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming.
According to People Magazine, well-known names in attendance included Lena Dunham, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Katy Perry, John Mayer and Seth Meyers.
We're gonna go out on a limb and assume Allison's famous father was also on hand.
Williams and Van Veen, who met through mutual friends, dated for over three years prior to the latter shocking the former with a proposal in February 2014.
The gorgeous actress has said in the past that she's "obsessed" with her engagement ring and also that she's excited to start a family.
I want to “create a career I can walk away from and become a mom," Williams once told Glamour.
We send the newlyweds all of our best wishes!
Over the weekend, Amy Duggar married Dillon King in a ceremony that was attended by many of her famous cousins.
(Josh was nowhere to be seen, which was probably best for everyone involved.)
Apparently, the event inspired the Duggar clan to focus on simpler, pre-sex-scandal times by delving into the past and revisiting Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald's wedding.
"We all had such a wonderful time at Amy's wedding," the family wrote on their official Facebook page.
"All of this excitement has caused Jessa to pull out her pictures from her wedding and post 100 of them on her website. Check out her album here which includes many never before seen pictures."
It may seem like a bit of a spotlight-stealing move, coming as it does so soon after Amy's big day, but we can't blame the Duggars for digging up some happy memories after the summer they've had.
