It's official: Britney Spears is married! The beloved pop singer wed model Sam Asghari on Thursday, June 9, multiple sources confirm to various outlets. News of the wedding comes nine months after the Grammy Award-winner shared their engagement in September 2021.

Britney Spears' Wedding Details
Spears and Asghari tied the knot at their Thousand Oaks home in Los Angeles. They tapped celebrity event planner Jeffrey Best of Best Events to design the celebration, which had a pink fairytale theme. "We really wanted to make this a small and beautiful moment with family and friends," Spears told Vogue. "We wanted warm and feminine colors including blush, white, cream, and gold, and a lot of various shades of pinks, blush, and reds."
Music unsurprisingly played an important role in the songstress' wedding: During the ceremony, sources say she walked down the aisle to Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love."
Prior to the nuptials, an insider told People that Spears was anxiously awaiting her big day. "Britney started planning and dreaming about her wedding shortly after she got engaged in November," they said. "It's a huge deal to her that she is finally able to get married. She wants it to be perfect."
The bride wore a custom wedding dress created by Donatella Versace. The design featured off-the-shoulder cap sleeves and a deep skirt slit, which she accessorized with a white veil and matching choker necklace. She completed her look with makeup by Charlotte and Sofia Tilbury and accessories by celeb-favorite jeweler Stephanie Gottlieb. In a statement to The Knot and others, Gottlieb confirmed that the bride wore 62 carats of diamonds, valued at $570,000. "We knew that Britney's dress had a classic silhouette with an open neckline, so we designed timeless pieces that would complement the style, including a tennis necklace, bracelet, and statement drop earrings," said Gottlieb said of the look. "These three classic styles all worked seamlessly together, while standing out individually to create a special wedding-worthy look."
The groom, for his part, wore a Versace tuxedo. Vogue shared that Spears later changed into three more outfits for the after-parties: a black mini dress, a two-toned outfit, and a red mini dress, all by Versace.
The Guest List
Only 60 guests were invited to the intimate nuptials. While Spears' children weren't in attendance, the happy couple did swap vows in front of famous friends like fellow newlywed Paris Hilton, Kathy Hilton, Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez and Madonna.
The newlyweds didn't have a first dance, but they were spotted dancing to "Toxic" with Gomez and Madonna. Hilton also gave a live performance of "Stars Are Blind." Following the reception, the couple departed in a Rolls Royce as guests waved them off with sparklers.
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari's Relationship Details
Britney Spears' wedding comes five years after she began dating Asghari. The two met on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video in 2016. On a radio interview, Spears later revealed that it took them five months to reconnect after meeting.
The singer has been open about her Asghari's support throughout her highly-publicized legal battle to end her conservatorship. Asghari often spoke out in support of his partner on social media; A month before they announced their engagement, Spears posted a loving tribute to him on Instagram: "Not only has this cute a--hole been with me through the hardest years of my life but he happens to be an extremely good cook!"
In September 2021, Asghari popped the question with a 4-carat diamond engagement ring by Roman Malayev, founder of Forever Diamonds NY. For a romantic touch, he had the inside of the band engraved with the word "Lioness," his nickname for Spears. Just two months later, a judge terminated the singer's conservatorship.
It's the first marriage for Asghari and the third for Spears, who shares children Sean and Jayden with ex Kevin Federline.
