There were many celebrity weddings of 2013 that were more low key as the newlyweds only shared their news after the ceremony took place. However, some celebs like Kelly Clarkson showed off their big day details the very next day! No matter what you think of these celebs included in my celebrity weddings of 2013 list, love them or hate them, you have to admit they look pretty gorgeous!
1. Chris Kirkpatrick
Would you believe that Justin Timberlake served as an usher at this celebrity wedding of 2013? Well, if you recall, Chris Kirkpatrick was a member of Timberlake’s boyband NSYNC, so it only seemed right that he had all of his band mates at his wedding; Lance, JC, and Joey were ushers as well. Kirkpatrick married longtime girlfriend Karly Skladany on Nov. 2nd in Orlando at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. The bride walked down the aisle in a gorgeous Enzoani gown and later took photos alongside Kirkpatrick with his band mates and Timberlake's wife Jessica Biel!
2. Megan Hilty
Well, talk about a surprise wedding; Megan Hilty of the now canceled hit NBC show “Smash” and boyfriend Brian Gallagher skipped the engagement and went right to saying, ‘I Do’! Hilty tweeted about it while still wearing her stunning Badgley Mischka wedding gown and showed off her beautiful ring alongside new husband Gallagher. They told family members a week before and asked them to be at The Venetian Chapel in Las Vegas on Nov. 2nd! Spontaneous, yet intimate and romantic!
3. Danielle Fishel
I am so excited that Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage are coming back to TV together next year in “Girl Meets World”, a spin off of their 90’s hit series “Boy Meets World”. So, when I heard that Fishel got married on Oct. 19th and that Savage was in attendance, it was like TV heaven! Okay so Fishel married fiance Tim Belusko and not Savage, but it was still pretty cool to see he was there on her big day! The bride wore a gorgeous strapless Enzoani gown and carried a beautiful bouquet filled with deep purple calla lilies.
4. Rider Strong
Unfortunately because he was attending Danielle Fishel’s wedding, Ben Savage could not make it to Rider Strong’s ceremony that took place the very next day on Oct. 20th. Strong married longtime girlfriend Alexandra Barreto at a summer camp in Oregon. The bride wore a beautiful Nicole Miller gown while her bridesmaids donned chambray shirts and adorable tulle skirts from Anjou Clothing on Etsy, along with cowgirl boots!
5. Kelly Clarkson
If there were ever a celebrity wedding that would inspire me to marry my husband all over again, Kelly Clarkson’s big day would be it! Clarkson eloped on Oct. 20th and said ‘I Do’ to fiance Brandon Blackstock at the breathtaking Blackberry Farms in Tennessee. Blackstock’s two children were there to share the special day with their dad and acted as their two witnesses for the ceremony. Oh, and just in case this photo of her stunning lace Temperley wedding dress wasn’t enough, you can watch a video of their beautiful wedding vimeo.com ; why couldn’t more celebs share their wedding details with us like Clarkson!
6. John Legend & Chrissy Teigen
If two of the most gorgeous people on the planet were ever to get married, oh wait they did! It really can’t get more amazing than singer John Legend marrying his supermodel girlfriend Chrissy Teigen in Italy. The bride wore a strapless Vera Wang gown for the ceremony, then changed into another dress for the reception, also by Vera, and a third dress by the same designer for the after party! During the reception not only did Legend sing for his bride, but wedding guest Stevie Wonder sang as well; talk about a fairy-tale wedding!
7. Patrick Stewart
I’m a movie geek and a big X-Men fan, so when I stumbled upon this photo of actor Ian McKellen as the officiant of co-star Patrick Stewart’s wedding, well it’s safe to say that I was geeking out! How cool would it be to have McKellen as your officiant? I guess you have to be Stewart to make that happen! The couple were married at Lake Tahoe and the bride, Sunny Ozell, wore a beautiful lace Temperley gown.
8. Jimmy Kimmel
The funny man marries his funny woman during a ceremony that included big star names like Jennifer Aniston, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Ellen. Jimmy Kimmel and co-writer of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Molly McNearney said ‘I Do’ on July 13th in California in front of 300 guests. I can’t imagine having that many guests, let alone a few of them being big celebs...pretty cool!
9. George Lucas
How stunning is Star Wars writer and director George Lucas’ bride Mellody Hobson! Her bouquet of roses represented her something blue. Very fitting for Lucas, the two were married on June 22nd at Skywalker Ranch, which is where he works and creates many of his productions. Their big day was another ceremony filled with star-studded guests like Oprah, Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg, Robert De Niro and more!
