Top 12 Headlines Of 2012: Celebrity Wedding Mania (#5)
2012 was big for celebrity weddings! Drew & Will, Blake & Ryan, Benjamin & Natalie and Jessica and Justin
LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
There were a lot of happy tears shed in 2012 as some of Hollywood’s biggest A-list stars said, “I do.”
Oscar winner Natalie Portman, former “Sexiest Man Alive” Ryan Reynolds, singer/actor Justin Timberlake, “Les Miserables” beauty Anne Hathaway and America’s Sweetheart Drew Barrymore all walked down the aisle on their way to wedded bliss.
After getting engaged to art consultant Will Kopelman over the 2011-2012 holidays, Drew got her happy ending with her man in a private ceremony in Montecito, Calif., in June 2012.
And baby makes three. The pair’s happy ending got even sweeter when Drew gave birth to their first child together — Olive Barrymore Kopelman — on September 26. Click HERE to see photos of other Hollywood moms and their adorable little ones.
It wasn’t June gloom, but rather June groom for Alec Baldwin, who married his longtime girlfriend, yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas in New York City, in front of friends and family.
Could their happily ever after including a baby? Watch what they had to say about that HERE.
Natalie Portman won an Oscar for “Black Swan” in January 2011, and a few months later, celebrated the birth of her first child – Aleph – with choreographer Benjamin Millepied.
Natalie and Benjamin (who worked on “Black Swan”) made it official, saying “I do,” in a Jewish ceremony in Big Sur, Calif., in August 2012.
Anne Hathaway heads into 2013 as a potential Best Actress Oscar contender thanks to her portrayal of Fantine in “Les Miserables.” The role made her cut her long locks (which she talked about HERE), but she covered up the ‘do with a headpiece when she wed fellow actor Adam Shulman, like Natalie and Benjamin, in Big Sur, Calif.
Blake Lively was another September bride when she and Ryan Reynolds surprised celeb watchers with their hush-hush nuptials in South Carolina. Although the tabloids were caught off guard by the supercouple’s big day, their friends and family weren’t. Blake’s former “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” co-stars America Ferrera, Alexis Bledel and Amber Tamblyn, as well as rocker Florence Welch – of Florence + The Machine, who performed at the wedding reception, were all in attendance.
Justin Timberlake officially went off the market in October 2012 when he married Jessica Biel in Italy. But the bride didn’t wear white. Jessica actually opted for a luxurious petal pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture, while Justin opted for Tom Ford. They celebrated their happiness with a very unique wedding photo, which appeared on the cover of People. (Click HERE to see the pic.)
