At the beginning of the year, TikTok stars Andrea Camila and Lewis Kelly exclusively gave The Knot an inside look at their bohemian jungle wedding on Friday the 13th in Tulum, Mexico. The couple invited their loved ones to a remote resort nestled within a lush forest and leaned into neutral hues to complement the natural background. Both the bride and the groom wore custom attire—she opted for a 3D floral lace gown while he donned a feathered cape over a light green suit—and they treated guests to an evening of delightful surprises, including a reception bounce house and a van photo booth.

Princess Iman of Jordan and Jameel Alexander Thermiotis: March 12, 2023

In one of the few royal weddings of 2023, Princess Iman of Jordan wed financier Jameel Alexander Thermiotis on March 12, 2023. The stunning spring wedding took place at Beit Al-Urdon Palace in Amman, Jordan. The bride wore a custom Dior wedding dress with a high illusion neckline, long sleeves and a sweeping lace veil, which was tucked into a dazzling tiara. The event was attended by scores of royals and global dignitaries and featured plenty of Jordanian wedding traditions, including a flag salute and a zaffa performance.

Lady Amelia Spencer and Greg Mallet: March 21, 2023

That same month, we saw another royal wedding. Lady Amelia Spencer—the niece of Princess Diana—married fitness coach Greg Mallet on March 21, 2023. The couple hosted a luxe celebration at Quoin Rock Wine Estate in South Africa, which gave off a sweeping view of the nearby mountain ranges. For the occasion, the bride wore a bespoke lace Atelier Versace wedding dress. According to Hello!, the romantic gown, which featured long sleeves, structured shoulders, exposed boning over a sheer bodice and a cascading train, was covered in Swarovski crystals and took over two months to create. The couple exchanged vows in front of a regal arch covered with lush white flowers. The bride's sisters Lady Eliza and Lady Kitty, as well as their father Earl Spencer (the late princess' brother), were all in attendance.

Courtney Kerr and Kyle Noonan: April 17, 2023

On April 17, 2023, former Bravo star Courtney Kerr married Kyle Noonan in St. Bart's, and the couple gave The Knot an exclusive first look inside their destination wedding. The fun-loving duo revamped their venue, Nikki Beach, and aptly renamed it "Noonan Beach" for the weekend-long extravaganza. With 80 of their loved ones, they allowed the tropical destination to influence the vibe of their mid-century modern nuptials, which featured nods to local cuisine and traditional Caribbean entertainment. Plus, given their shared love of martinis, the evening featured an array of signature martini cocktails. Both the bride and groom organized entertainment surprises for each other: He orchestrated a saxophone player to perform "Holy" by Justin Bieber and Chance the Rapper as she walked down the aisle, while she arranged an Elvis sing-along during the reception.

Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge: April 22, 2023

It was, perhaps, *the* celebrity wedding of 2023. On April 22, Sofia Richie married Elliot Grainge at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, a luxury hotel in the South of France. The event became an internet sensation, with many dubbing it the "royal wedding" of the year. The bride joined TikTok days before swapping vows and gave fans a behind-the-scenes peek into the entire wedding weekend, helping fuel the fascination with this destination affair. Sofia's father, music icon Lionel Richie, walked her down the aisle and gave a performance during the reception (as did her brother-in-law Benji Madden of Good Charlotte fame). The bride wore three custom Chanel looks throughout the wedding weekend, and has since gone on to inspire bridal makeup and hair trends thanks to her "quiet luxury" aesthetic that's now taking the wedding industry by storm.

Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens: April 22, 2023

On the same day, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles wed NFL player Jonathan Owens at a courthouse in Houston, Texas. Their intimate elopement came as a surprise to fans, but it wasn't their only wedding celebration. A few weeks later on May 6, the newlyweds hosted a sequel ceremony in Cabo, Mexico. The bride wore four custom Galia Lahav dresses for the destination party, which took place took place on the Umi Terrace of the Nobu Los Cabos Hotel. Speaking about the collaborative dress design experience with the gold medalist, head designer Sharon Sever told The Knot, "It was a dream to work with Simone. She really knows what works for her and she chose such beautiful looks that complement her in every way possible."

Lukas Gage and Chris Appleton: April 22, 2023

When it comes to celebrity weddings, we can't help but love a Vegas vow swap. That's where The White Lotus actor Lukas Gage married celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton on April 22, which was quite a popular wedding date in the celebrity world. This top-secret elopement took place at the Little White Chapel in front of just six guests…including the one and only Kim Kardashian, who officiated. The grooms wore edgy black ensembles and matching black fur jackets for the occasion, which also included a private performance by Shania Twain. After officially becoming husbands, the newlyweds celebrated by getting matching ink commemorating the date on their ankles. The marriage was short-lived, though—in November 2023, TMZ reported that the couple called it quits six months later.

Chrishell Stause and G Flip: May 10, 2023

After going public with their romance in May 2022, Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause and G Flip tied the knot one year later. The real estate agent married the Australian singer in yet another secret Las Vegas ceremony on May 10, 2023. The couple announced the happy news with an Instagram reel featuring clips from their relationship, including some from the wedding.

Beanie Feldstein and Bonnie Chance: May 20, 2023

This celebrity wedding was giving camp in the best way possible. On May 20, actress Beanie Feldstein married Bonnie Chance at the secluded Cedar Lakes Estate in New York's Hudson Valley. The brides worked with an all-female team of vendors to bring their vision to life, which was a nod to their love of summer camp. Both wore Gucci for the big day: Beanie opted for a vintage gown with lace details and a diamond bow, while Bonnie wore a light pink bridal suit. The nuptials were attended by plenty of the couple's famous friends, including Sarah Paulson, Holland Taylor, Adam Levine, Behati Prinsloo, and Beanie's brother Jonah Hill. Her best friend Ben Platt performed during the couple's first dance.

Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup: June 9, 2023

As much as we appreciate a lavish celebrity wedding, we also have a soft spot for a minimony. On June 9, actors Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup snuck off to city hall in Manhattan to discreetly tie the knot. For the low-key occasion, the bride wore a lace off-the-rack Oscar de la Renta dress. She shared a handful of Instagram Stories from the big day, revealing that she sourced her bouquet of white flowers "from the deli." It doesn't get more NYC than that.

Taylor Hill and Daniel Fryer: June 10, 2023

We've seen a rise in the Western aesthetic in recent years, and Taylor Hill's wedding was a beautiful execution of this buzzy theme. The model married British entrepreneur Daniel Fryer on June 10 at Devil's Thumb Ranch in Winter Park, Colorado. The bride thoughtfully selected a venue near her hometown as a nod to her bucolic upbringing. The weekend began with a welcome party at a nearby ranch, where guests got to ride horses and take in the sweeping scenery. For the ceremony, the bride wore a custom off-the-shoulder Etro wedding dress with a tiered skirt and lace details. She opted to go barefoot as she walked down the aisle to feel connected and grounded to the setting. Meanwhile, her husband sported an array of cowboy hats throughout the weekend—a fitting accessory given the rustic setting.

Emily Mariko and Matt Rickard: June 22, 2023

Though she often goes viral for her famous salmon bowl recipe, TikTok star Emily Mariko's wedding this summer also took the internet by storm. The content creator married her husband Matt Rickard at a chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. In keeping with the popularity of Sofia Richie's wedding, Emily Mariko's was also a beautiful iteration of quiet luxury. The decor included romantic clusters of airy white flowers, candles and blue and white serveware. Given her niche as a food TikToker, the menu was thoughtfully curated to include localized seasonal dishes like grilled fish, steak and one of Mariko's go-to recipes: fresh lemon pasta under heaping piles of parmesan cheese. At the end of the night, the newlyweds enjoyed burgers, fries and shakes from an In-N-Out truck.

Dylan Sprouse and Barbara Palvin: July 15, 2023

The Sprouses became spouses on July 15, 2023. Actor Dylan Sprouse wed model Barbara Palvin at Harlekin Birtok, a sprawling countryside estate owned by the bride's parents in her native Hungary. (It's also where they were married 34 years prior.) The couple hosted an authentic Hungarian wedding with plenty of traditional touches, and the groom even wore an earpiece to have the readings translated in real time. During the ceremony, Barbara stunned in a beautiful '90s-inspired scoop neck wedding dress by Vivienne Westwood, which she styled with a custom Tiffany & Co. necklace and Jimmy Choo heels. For a brief dance during the reception, she wore a fiery red dress as a nod to her culture.

Jack Antonoff and Margaret Qualley: August 19, 2023

You might recall August 19th as the day all the celebrities flocked to New Jersey for the wedding of Jack Antonoff and Margaret Qualley. The Grammy Award-winning music producer married the actress in a private ceremony on Long Beach Island—but when fans caught word that Taylor Swift was on the guest list, throngs of onlookers descended upon the quiet beach town to try to catch a glimpse. Although not many details have been shared about this 2023 celebrity wedding, we do know that the couple hosted a rehearsal dinner at Black Whale Restaurant the night before the big day. A few paparazzi shots gave a peek at the bride's wedding dress, which appeared to be an ivory silk halter-neck A-line gown with white Mary Jane flats. She later changed into a white midi dress with a square neckline and oversized puff sleeves, while the groom kept it classic in a black suit.

Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour: August 23, 2023

Bachelor fans rejoiced on August 23, when franchise favorites Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour were married in Paris, France. The couple, who met on Bachelor in Paradise, hosted a stunning destination event complete with a boat ride around the Seine, an ethereal garden rehearsal dinner, and a lavish ceremony on the grounds of a historic chateau. The bride wore three Pronovias wedding dresses on her big day, but her entire wedding wardrobe took social media by storm. Ahead of the wedding, Hannah told The Knot that she was aiming to host the "party of the decade," saying, "The most exciting thing for me is being able to get our family and friends together and just have fun making memories. I'm excited to be in full bridal mode!"

Joey King and Steven Piet: September 2, 2023

In what was easily one of the most beautiful celebrity weddings of 2023, actress Joey King married director Stephen Piet in Mallorca, Spain. The couple was inspired by The Great Gatsby for their big day, which took place at La Fortaleza. Aside from the jaw-dropping views surrounding the open-air venue that overlooked the sea, Joey looked like a vision in four custom Oscar de la Renta dresses, including a strapless ball gown with oversized flower petal paillettes. It was a star-studded affair, and singer Sabrina Carpenter (a close friend of the bride) serenaded onlookers during the ceremony.

Chris Evans and Alba Baptista: September 9, 2023

Much to the dismay of fans around the world, 2023 was the year Captain America officially went off the market. Chris Evans married actress Alba Baptista in a secret ceremony at their home in Cape Cod, Massachusetts on September 9, 2023. Security was of the utmost importance at the private nuptials, and it was reported that the couple's guests—including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt—were required to give up their phones and sign NDAs. During an appearance at New York Comic Con in October, the actor confirmed the nuptials and revealed they had a second party in his wife's native Portugal, calling the ceremonies "wonderful and beautiful."

Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert: September 23, 2023

There were a few highly-anticipated Bachelor celebrity weddings in 2023. Mere weeks after Hannah and Dylan swapped vows, fans saw another Bachelor in Paradise wedding come to fruition. Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert got married on September 23 in Colorado, and their rustic Western wedding was reminiscent of Taylor Hill's. The couple's venue, Beyul Retreat, boasted unparalleled views of lush forests and towering mountains, which guests could take in from cozy seating areas set up throughout the grounds. The couple enjoyed a quaint rowboat ride on a nearby lake as a reprieve from the excitement of the day, before enjoying a raucous reception. In addition to live music, the couple had a tattoo artist on standby for guests to enjoy permanent favors—a treat the groom couldn't pass up. Speaking to The Knot before her big day, the bride said her guiding theme was "mountainous elegance," saying, "I want to look back at our photos and think they're timeless and classic."

Anya Taylor-Joy and Malcolm McRae: September 30, 2023

Although we have yet to see official photos of Anya Taylor-Joy and Malcolm McRae's nuptials, we know it was one of the best celebrity weddings of 2023. The Queens Gambit actress married the musician in Venice, Italy, in front of 150 guests, including Julia Garner and Cara Delevingne. Paparazzi captured the bride sipping coffee on a balcony while wearing a silk white robe on her wedding morning before she slipped into a stunning beige gown by Dior covered in glittering embellishments and embroidery of birds and flowers.

Milo Ventimiglia and Jarah Mariano

In October, Us Weekly exclusively revealed that actor Milo Ventimiglia and model Jarah Mariano secretly got married earlier in the year. Fans were thrilled by the news, particularly because Mariano shares the same last name as Ventimiglia's beloved Gilmore Girls character, Jess Mariano. Although it's unclear exactly when this 2023 celebrity wedding took place, it appeared to be a tropical affair. In photos released by the outlet, Ventimiglia wore a relaxed white button-up shirt with white slacks and a lush green lei, while the bride wore a simple white dress with a matching flower crown. According to a source, the secret wedding was only attended by a handful of close friends and family members.

Ashley Benson and Brandon Davis

Former Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson wed Brandon Davis in late 2023. Just days after the couple announced that they were expecting their first child, multiple sources confirmed that they quietly swapped vows too. In a now-deleted Instagram post shared by Benson's mother, the couple could be seen wearing wedding bands on their left hands. The actress confirmed her engagement to Davis, an oil heir, in July 2023. They were first romantically linked in January of this year after they were spotted sitting courtside at a Lakers game.

Samantha Hanratty and Christian DeAnda: November 11, 2023

On November 11, Yellowjackets star Samantha Hanratty wed Christian DeAnda, a post-production assistant. The actress, who graced the cover of The Knot Magazine's Winter 2023 issue, gave us an exclusive look inside her fall nuptials, which took place at Terra Mia Vineyards in Paso Robles, California. "I wasn't sure I wanted to have my wedding at a vineyard, but the moment I saw the property, I knew it was the place," she told us. "We reserved it 18 months before our wedding to hold it," she shares. "It was definitely worth it, because it was magical." The wedding—which was attended by plenty of Hanratty's Yellowjackets castmates—was a deeply personal and sentimental affair. One standout moment was during the reception, when the father of the bride debuted an original song he wrote for the newlyweds.

Looking back, the bride told us her favorite memory was "the moment I turned the corner to walk down the aisle and our eyes met." She added, "It's not something you can really describe—it's something that's felt, and I think everyone there felt it too."
