How Karlie Kloss, Mandy Moore, Kit Harington, Miley Cyrus and others said “I Do”  By Lisa Brown

From elaborate nuptials that stretched on for days (Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas) to a tiny City Hall affair presided over by The Fat Jew, 2018 was a vintage year for celebrity weddings.

Some were a total surprise. Comedian Amy Schumer revealed she’d tied the knot with boyfriend Chris Fischer on Instagram with a simple “yup”, while long-term on/off couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth ended the year by revealing an intimate Christmas wedding party.

Some went all-out for their big day: Pusha-T’s and Virginia Joy Williams’ Virginia Beach ceremony was attended by Kim Kardashian West and Pharrell Williams – who was best man, while influencer Chiara Ferragni and rapper Fedez’s Italian ceremony featured a Coachella-themed after-party and a private plane for family and friends.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas reception arrival 

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding was a highly anticipated event that didn’t disappoint. The lavish celebrations kicked off the weekend of December 1 and featured a traditional Hindu ceremony at the luxurious Umaid Bhawan Palace, A List guests – including the bride’s sister-in-law to be Sophie Turner, and multiple outfit changes that included a stunning Ralph Lauren dress with a 75-foot veil and a Ralph & Russo Couture look for the pre-wedding ceremony. And just when it seemed to be all over… the couple threw another post-honeymoon wedding party in Mumbai a few weeks later.

The model announced on Instagram that she’d married producer Sebastian Bear McClard – who she had only apparently been dating for a few weeks – in a low-key City Hall ceremony in New York in February. Instagram star “The Fat Jew” acted as celebrant, and while there was no big white gown, Ratajkowski looked perfectly chic in a netted hat and caramel-colored trouser suit. 

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

Just when you thought wedding season was coming to an end, longtime couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth topped off 2018 with a private ceremony at the singer’s Tennessee home on December 23. Rumors of the nuptials began after photos from a friend emerged on Instagram that appeared to show a Miley in a white dress. She later confirmed the marriage with her own romantic shots of the big day, one captioned “10 years later.” The star wore a white, Vivienne Westwood off-the-shoulder dress.

Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer

Amy Schumer also nonchalantly shared her wedding news on Instagram in a post that simply read “yup,” along with a shot from the private ceremony.

Pusha-T and Virginia Williams

2018 was a huge year for Pusha-T’s career, but it was also a pretty great one personally.

Hayley Bloomingdale and Alexander “Dada” Stileman

Heiress Hayley Bloomingdale married designer Alexander “Dada” Stileman in a Santa Barbara ceremony in late October. From the custom-made Carolina Herrera dress to the ocean-side cocktail reception, the couple’s big day was both lavish and laid-back.
