Your Favorite Celebrity Couples' Wedding Anniversaries
There's a good reason why we all have our favorite celebrity relationships: In some ways, it's these A-listers' rock-solid marriages that bring them down to earth. They're relatable, in-love, and above all, just like us (in this regard, at least!). Say what you will about celebrity marriages, but the ones that last are the definition of inspiring. That's why we can't help but follow their unique love stories.
While we're sure you know all about your favorite A-list pairings, it's always fun to dig a little deeper into the foundation of their relationships. That's why we've compiled a comprehensive list of celebrity anniversary dates, complete with fun facts about each couple's wedding day and family life. The best part? We were sure to include the couples that you've followed for years—like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson and Faith Hill and Tim McGraw—with newer twosomes whose nuptials have recently swept us off our feet (we're looking at you, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!). The partners we've spotlighted come from different backgrounds, have had all kinds of weddings, and have been married for varying lengths of time. They do, however, all have one thing in common: Their love stories are inspiring and truly worth learning from.
From Barack and Michelle Obama and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, to Prince William and Kate Middleton and Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, we've covered all of the couples who love each other (almost) as much as you love them. Ahead, a brief picture of their relationships and the moment that began it all: their wedding days.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
May 19, 2018
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's nuptials—the most highly-anticipated wedding since Prince William and Kate Middleton's ceremony—took place at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on a sunny day in May.

Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer
February 13, 2018
The comedian and decorated chef surprised us all—their guests included—when they married in a spur-of-the-moment oceanside ceremony in California. Preparation for the big day was brief.

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews
May 20, 2017
Pippa Middleton might not be explicitly royal, but the hype surrounding her and James Matthews' May 2017 marriage suggested otherwise. Kate Middleton's little sister turned heads in a custom lace Giles Deacon, complete with a high neckline and dainty cap sleeves. Nearly one year after tying the knot, the duo are said to be expecting their first child.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian
November 16, 2017
The tennis champion and Reddit co-founder reminded us all how opulent celebrity weddings could be when they tied the knot in a New Orleans celebration that rivaled Mardis Gras. The bride wore three wedding dresses, took her first married spin to the epic Disney classic "Tale as Old as Time," sat at a throne-style head table, and partied with their best friends (Beyoncé, included!). The guest of honor, though, was definitely the couple's infant daughter, Alexis Olympia.
Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello

These two met on the set of their movie I Know What You Did Last Summer in 1997. The '90s teenage heartthrobs planned to wed on the beach in Mexico, but not everything went according to plan.
