Admire: Hollywood Summer Weddings!

We all know summer is the most popular time for weddings, and Hollywood weddings are no exception! It has been a summer filled beautiful weddings (and some drool-worthy dresses!) for celebrity couples all over the world, so here are a few of our favorites:

Most Luxurious: Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

This long time couple finally said “I do” at San Ysidro Ranch outside of Santa Barbara, California. With both of their young children and a bevy of celebrities, this twosome celebrated under thousands of lights, candles and flowers. And in a custom Carolina Herrera dress no less! The bride was inspired by her favorite film, the 1998 film version of “Great Expectations” (what a wild choice!), but alas, photos are limited. We highly recommend you go pick up that issue of People Magazine because the actual photos are gorgeous!

Most Out-There Dress Choice: It’s a tie! Piper Perabo AND Olivia Palermo

Both of these stylish ladies rocked very unique wedding day styles. Actress Piper Perabo stunned in a metallic silver, leopard print Michael Kors gown with a yellow veil (what a combo!) during her New Orleans nuptials to director Stephen Kay. Surprisingly, with the mishmash of textures and colors, it all seems to go together! On the other hand, while style maven Olivia Palermo looked very traditional in flowy white, she revealed that this Carolina Herrera confection was actually all about comfort–she’s wearing shorts! Hard to notice those while she’s standing next to one divinely handsome groom–Johannes Huebel!

Best Take on a Traditional Dress: Cheryl Hines

While she was marrying political royalty, Cheryl Hines went for a whimsical take on traditional! For marrying Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Hines donned a cocktail length Romona Keveza dress with strappy metallic sandals.

Best Reunion at a Wedding (and coolest cake): Dave Coulier

Weddings are always a reunion of some type–family, friends, classmates, the list goes on! But Dave Coulier can brag he had a mini Full House reunion at his Montana ranch wedding to Melissa Bring. Doesn’t John Stamos make quite the dreamy guest? To top it off, look at this unique wedding cake made by the maid-of-honor’s mom!

Best Surprise Wedding: Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey

Having only recently ended an engagement 3 months prior, actress Naya Rivera shocked Hollywood by announcing she had married long time friend, actor Ryan Dorsey, in an intimate beach side affair in Cabo san Lucas. But she did manage to find the time to get her hands on a stunning, lacy Monique Lhuillier gown!

Best Tennessee Wedding: Kimberly Perry & JP Arencibia

Hollywood even makes it way out to Tennessee, folks! Singer Kimberly Perry married baseball player JP Arencibia in Greeneville, the bride’s hometown. Celebrities such as Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton trekked over from Nashville for the fete.

Maybe the Cheesiest, but Most Hilarious Wedding Photo Ever: Jeff Goldblum & Emilie Livingston

Yes, every wedding does have its share of cheesy and staged photos. But to capitalize on his “Jurassic Park” fame, actor Jeff Goldblum raised the stakes with this awesome pic:

Hollywood’s Hottest Wedding Spot?

For the last decade or so, scores of hot celebrity couples have retreated to one foreign locale for their star-studded nuptials. From Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biels, Italy has time and time again proved to be perfect for a destination wedding.  And why? Because Italy has so much to offer! From lavish weddings in ancient cathedrals to intimate ceremonies in private villas, almost any location in Italy provides a scenic backdrop.

Italy is also the locale for this month’s celebrity wedding special!

On Saturday, September 14th, singer John Legend married model Chrissy Teigen overlooking the outrageously beautiful Lake Como. As per any celebrity wedding, the guest list featured an abundance of stars including Kanye West, Quincy Jones, and model Brooklyn Decker (who also served as a bridesmaid!). The party of 125 guests later dined on Italian fare, including truffle risotto.

The 2 major highlights of the wedding? The music and the dress(es)! Not only did the groom serenade his bride with a piano rendition of “All of Me,” but guest Stevie Wonder treated the entire crowd to a performance of “Ribbon in the Sky.” And yes, we did say dresses (plural) as the bride slipped into not one, not two, but three Vera Wang dresses throughout the day! She started the day in a stunning ivory strapless ball gown, which featured hand-cut petal embroidery. For the reception she donned another ivory dress, but switched to a mermaid style with an organza full skirt. Finally, she stuck with the mermaid style but went with a colorful frock of crimson to cap the evening. What a lucky lady!

We just want to know with the wedding being in Lake Como, who stayed at George Clooney’s house??
