Love has definitely been in the air for celebrities this year and we have already seen one wedding after another. We love celebrity weddings because there is just nothing quite like them. Stars have the money that it takes to have a big bash with all the trimmings. We end up seeing extravagant gowns fit for royalty and parties with hundreds of guests. When we hear that our favorite celebrities are getting hitched, we look forward to the pictures to see who was invited, who wore what and whether it was a lavish affair or a quiet ceremony. Celebrity weddings are just so much fun!
The other side of the coin is that 2019 has already had its fair share of celebrity breakups. We find these stories less exciting because we don’t like it when our favorite celebrities call it quits. Whether it’s celebrity weddings or celebrity breakups, this year is one for the books and you might be surprised to see who’s on the list. Check out these 13 celebs who recently got married (+ 7 who just called it quits).
20 Married: Nicolas Cage Got Hitched Yet Again
Nicolas Cage just loves getting married to random women. He hasn’t been in a high-profile relationship in years. Just this past March, Cage got married to Erika Koike in Las Vegas of all places. Apparently, the two have been a couple for almost a year before tying the knot.
She is a makeup artist though it’s unclear if that is how they met. They have kept a low profile over the past year and we haven't seen much about Erika other than that she and Cage had a vacation in Puerto Rico last year. Cage may find it less stressful dating women who aren’t famous.
19 Married: Chance The Rapper Sealed The Deal
The Chicago-born rapper has been with his girlfriend Kirsten Corley, since 2013. They got engaged last July and they share a daughter together. Chance refers to them on social media now as “The Bennetts,” which is cute.
The couple got married in March of this year at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California. “It was a beautiful ceremony,” a source told Us, adding that guests flocked to a photo booth during the reception.
Chance is a musician and member of The Social Experiment and his birth name was Chancelor Bennett but he changed it to suit his rapper lifestyle.
18 Married: Bachelor Alums Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Got Married In Hawaii
This gorgeous couple exchanged vows in Hawaii this year. They met on Season 22 of The Bachelor and although Ari chose someone else at the end of the show, he eventually had a change of heart.
The Bachelor alums couldn’t wait to be married and spend their lives together. “Ever since we’ve gotten together, we wanted to fast-forward to this day,” the groom told Us. “It’s been a year. That’s kind of crazy ‘cause I remember a year ago we were doing ‘happy couples [weekend on The Bachelor]’ and talking about getting married and wanting to do that, even last year, so it’s awesome that the day is finally here.”
17 Married: Jimmi Simpson and Sophia Del Pizzo Made It Official
April was a good month for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor Jimmi Simpson as he tied the knot with actress Sophia Del Pizzo. He stood out in bright yellow sneakers for the day that matched his bride’s bouquet of flowers. He seemed pretty excited about the whole thing and took his thoughts to social media.
“I convinced @sophiadelpizzo to stick it out with me, you guys,” Simpson wrote as the caption for a series of pics from the event on his social media. “We got hitched this weekend and I could not be any luckier. My mom and @bruce__mckenzie helped ring it in and it was perfect!”
16 Married: Lea Michele Found Love Once Again
There was a time when Lea Michele’s heart was so broken that she probably thought that she wouldn’t fall in love again. Thankfully, that time is over and she got hitched this year. She married AYR president Zandy Reich in Napa, California, in March. It was a Glee reunion as former co-stars Becca Tobin, Darren Criss and Jonathan Groff, among others, were guests at the wedding.
She even had Ryan Murphy, co-creator of the comedy series, officiate the nuptials for her big day. Having close friends or family members officiate a wedding seems to be a popular thing in Hollywood these days.
15 Called It Quits: Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus Split Up Twice
Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have broken up multiple times and the last occurrence may have had something to do with his most recent stint in rehab. They rekindled their romance only to break up three months later.
“She has a kid and an ex-husband and a job in New York and Ben has his family and a job in L.A., and while they love and respect each other, they just realized it wasn’t going to work,” an insider told Us. “They really gave it another solid try.”
There have been recent reports stating that they may be seeing each other again. Only time will tell.
14 Married: Ashley Bush Gets Married In Texas
George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush’s granddaughter Ashley Bush married Julian LeFevre in March. There have been a ton of March weddings lately to start wedding season! It was Ashley’s sister, Lauren, who officiated the wedding.
“Beyond joyful for my beautiful and loving sister Ash & her new hubby Jules! It was an honor of a lifetime to get to officiate their ceremony yesterday,” Lauren, founder of FEED Projects, wrote on social media. “I love them to the moon and back, and wish them a very happy forever more.”
The pictures posted on People showed a really fun party.
13 Married: Miranda Lambert Is Giving Marriage Another Shot
Miranda Lambert hasn’t had the best luck in love and marriage and this will be her second wedding to date. She was previously married to Blake Shelton but she believes that the second time will be the charm. She and her partner, Brendan McLoughlin, got married on Valentine’s Day, which will make that day extra special for her from now on.
"In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to share some news. I met the love of my life. And we got hitched!" Lambert captioned two photos on social media with her new husband. "My heart is full. Thank you, Brendan McLoughlin, for loving me for…. Me."
12 Married: Darren Criss and Mia Swier Have Been Together For A While
These two were together for a whopping eight years before tying the knot, but they were only engaged for a month before making it official in February. It may have been a long haul but the couple couldn’t look happier together. They took their wedding to New Orleans and E! News shared pictures of the gorgeous couple. When the wedding was over, the two rode off in the sunset in a red car.
We first met Darren Criss on the TV show Glee as well as the series The Assassination of Gianni Versace. He posted on social media, “Mia and I have had seven and a half years of fun, wacky, wonderful, CRAZY adventures together.”
11 Married: Tommy Lee Took The Plunge
Tommy Lee has got married once again and this time it’s to Paradise City actress Brittany Furlan. These two were another couple that decided to make their love official on Valentine’s Day.
Their dogs were in attendance at their wedding, strangely dressed up as a bride and groom. Furlan posted pictures on social media with the caption, “It’s official!!!! We’re married!!! MR & MRS LEE YAHOOOOOOOO.” Lee shared the same photo on his page and captioned it, "Holy (…)!!!! We did it!!!! Mr & Mrs Lee."
10 Called It Quits: Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter Ended Things
The host of The Wendy Williams Show and her husband of a whopping 21 years called it quits this April. She stated that there had been ongoing marital problems and she was seeking a divorce. There were signs that there were problems. Fans noticed that she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring prior to the news confirming their split with Page Six.
There had been a lot of talk about their marriage over the years so people weren’t too surprised that they finally split.
9 Married: True Blood Alum Deborah Ann Woll Tied The Knot
True Blood alum Deborah Ann Woll and her boyfriend of many years tied the knot in Hawaii this year. “Deborah and I eloped in December! On our 11th anniversary!” her partner E.J. Scott captioned two photos of the couple on social media in February. Their relationship certainly has had its struggles and worries over the years and they are hoping the future can change that.
Scott, who has choroideremia, a condition that ultimately leads to blindness, added, “If anyone is interested in donating to the Choroideremia Research Foundation please do at www.curechm.org.” Deborah has been using her fame to spread awareness of the disease and raise money for research.
8 Married: Rebecca Ferguson Had A Secret Wedding
Rebecca Ferguson came on the scene in the movie Mission: Impossible – Fallout co-starring Tom Cruise. She also made quite an impression alongside Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman. Ferguson is so secretive about her man that she’s never even shared his last name publicly. We only know him as Rory.
The couple secretly tied the knot in January of this year. “I just think we both wanted to step over all thresholds,” she explained to Extra. “I’m not religious. I believe in love. … It was more for us and our family.”
Ferguson, who shares children with ex-boyfriend Ludwig Hallberg, wore a “wedding skirt” in lieu of a traditional dress. We’re sure she was as stunning as ever.
7 Married: The Food Network Guru Duff Goldman Got Married
If you think this picture is computer-generated, you would be wrong. The Food Network guru Duff Goldman married his longtime love, Johnna Colbry, at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles.
Their wedding ceremony included a petting zoo for the guests and they had five different wedding cakes. One of the cakes was a “meat cake” that was meant to supplement the rest of the wedding dinner. It’s certainly a wedding that people would remember.
They got engaged last April and he didn’t have a ring at the time so he proposed with a ring of twine.
6 Married: Steve Guttenberg Gets Married Later On In Life
Steve Guttenberg has had a long career in Hollywood that dates back to Three Men and a Baby. Emily Smith, a CBS reporter, married him this January in Malibu. They met on a blind date that was set up by WCBS-TV correspondent Scott Rapoport. He was also in attendance at the wedding and probably felt pretty smug considering it was his idea that they should meet.
You never really know when you are going to meet the one! The two were together for a year before they got engaged and moved in together. They announced their engagement in a social media post to their fans.
5 Called It Quits: Bachelor Alum Amanda Stanton Gives Up
The Bachelor TV show doesn’t exactly have a great track record for couples surviving the long haul. Amanda Stanton and Bobby Jacobs called it quits this April after they moved in together.
“There was no [stepping out],” Jacobs told a fan on social media. He also revealed that he still plans to be in Stanton’s kids’ lives because it’s important. As he told Us, “[I’ll] always be there for the girls and I’ve voiced that many a time. Coming from having a deadbeat Dad I’ve chosen to live my life nothing like him. They touched my heart and vice versa. No matter what I’ll always be around for them.”
4 Called It Quits: Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q Said Goodbye
We were quite saddened by the news that Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q split up because they have been together for so long. They were engaged for over four years but never got married and maybe that was part of the problem.
The two met on the CBS show Stalker in which they worked together. They hadn’t settled on a wedding date because of their schedules. “So, yeah, [it’s] because of work,” Hawaii-born Q said in March 2015, “and … because you gotta balance everything.”
That was right when they got engaged and they still couldn’t pull it together.
3 Called It Quits: Emma Roberts and Evan Peters Are Finally Finished
We saw this one coming for a while but Emma and Evan have broken up numerous times over the years. They seem to have a volatile relationship that has ended up in public spats in the past. They have been on-and-off for years but they always seem to find their way back to each other.
We can’t say for sure if it’s over for good just because of their track record, but maybe it’s time for them to move on with other people. “Emma and Evan were heading for a split and now are just friends,” one source told Us. “Evan has moved out. It wasn’t a bad breakup.”
2 Called It Quits: Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Are No More
In February, US Weekly reported that Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson had called it quits. Their breakup came 10 months after a sad incident that occurred just days before Khloe was supposed to give birth to their daughter. Some guys just don’t know what they have until it’s gone.
The source stated that Khloe has been "living and behaving as a single mother" and hasn't "traveled to Cleveland [where Thompson plays basketball] in a while." Recently they had an awkward moment at their daughter’s 1st birthday in which Khloe ignored Tristan for the entire day. What did he expect?
1 Called It Quits: Nicolas Cage's Marriage Only Lasted Four Days
Nicolas Cage may have got married again this year but he also got that marriage annulled just four days later! We can’t even say that we are surprised. He stated in the annulment papers that he was “too drunk” to get married. The two had a public spat that was filmed by TMZ after the annulment and it’s pretty safe to say that their relationship is over for good.
Cage’s attorney released a statement that said, “Prior to obtaining a marriage license and participating in a marriage ceremony, [Cage] and [Koike] were both drinking to the point of intoxication. As a result of his intoxication, when [Koike] suggested to [Cage] that they should marry, [Cage] reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions.”
