In 2010, some of music’s biggest names tied the knot, and some of Hollywood’s favorite starlets said goodbye to their fellow single ladies and married the men of their dreams. Some celebs married on the down low, and some married in over-the-top affairs, but they all made us envious of the lives of the rich and famous. Here, MTV News takes a look back at the most memorable weddings of the year:
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green surprised everyone when they married in a hush-hush ceremony on June 24, just weeks after they confirmed their engagement. There was no Hollywood pomp and circumstance. The pair, who had their ups and downs over the course of their courtship, married at the Four Seasons Resort on Hawaii’s Big Island, the same hotel where Green popped the question to the starlet.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Months after their flirtation at the 2009 VMAs led to a full-fledged romance, the couple got engaged on New Year’s Eve while vacationing in India. As 2010 rolled along, Perry and Brand didn’t give too many details away about their nuptials, which would eventually take place in India in October. Though the ceremony was conducted by a Christian minister, the couple paid homage to their wedding’s setting by including traditional Indian rituals. And while we have yet to see what the dress looked like, we know Perry wore a dove-gray gown with lace sleeves designed by Elie Saab.
Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher
Carrie and Mike did it big when they married at the Ritz-Carlton, Reynolds Plantation in Georgia in July. The wedding reportedly cost $500,000 and included celebrity pals like Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as wedding guests. The country superstar donned a Chantilly lace gown by Monique Lhuillier as she said “I do” in front of a reported 250 people.
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz
Alicia and Swizz married in July in front of the backdrop of the Mediterranean. The very pregnant singer and her super-producer love said their vows in Vera Wang and Tom Ford, respectively. Deepak Chopra presided over the nuptials. Weeks later the pair welcomed their son, Egypt Daoud Dean , into the world.
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden
After two kids and four years together, Nicole and Joel tied the knot in December. The guest list was a who’s who of the music world including No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani, celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson and Madden’s twin and Good Charlotte bandmate, Benji, and an elephant attending the glamorous wedding. Reverend Run of Run-DMC presided over the ceremony.
