Along with family and friends, his “Entourage” cast-mates were also at the wedding ceremony. We wish the happy couple all the best in their new union as husband and wife!
“You Betta Werk!!”
Congratulations are in order for RuPaul and his husband, Georges LeBar! The loving couple have been partners for 23 years and decided to finally tie the knot in the month of January 2017; the same month they met at the former NYC club, “The Limelight”. Here’s to wishing many more blissful years to the happy couple!
While We Were Sleeping….
The surprise wedding of “Justice League” and “Game of Thrones” actor, Jason Mamoa and “Cosby Show” actress, Lisa Bonet was sure kept under wraps! We assumed the couple of 12 years were already hitched when it was announced that they officially got married back in October of 2017. Although Jason was none to please with the media leak, we are thrilled that the couple decided to tie the knot at an intimate ceremony attended by family and close friends. May the couple have continuous happiness together.
“Here Comes the Bride, All dressed in Orange… uh, err White!”
“Orange is the New Black” star, Samira Whiley weds long-term companion and show writer Lauren Morelli on March 25, 2017. The couple married in an intimate ceremony among family and friends in Palm Springs, Southern California. Congratulations to the lovebirds and many more years to come!
Wow…He pulled a Fass One on Us!
“X-Men” star Michael Fassbender married actress Alicia Vikander in a secret wedding in Ibiza on October 14, 2017. Like their good friends, Lisa Bonet and Jason Mamoa, they also kept their nuptials a secret until the media caught wind of it when the couple exposed their wedding rings to the public. We wish the lovebird the best of luck in the future!
“A wedding Fit for a Princess!”
Wow, dreams really do come true! “Shahs of Sunset” star Lilly Ghalichi married her fiancé, Dara Mir, in an extravagant wedding ceremony in Beverly Hills on May 6, 2017. The happy couple exchanged vows at The Beverly Hilton. The ceremony itself is #weddinggoals, with beautiful flowers walls, opulent dining and a gorgeous gown by designer Ryan & Walter Bridal couture. Mahmoud Sidani, a friend of the couple quoted: “If I can one day find a love, worth a fraction of the love you both share, I would consider myself lucky. Your happily ever after begins now ♥ I love you both so much!” Congratulations to the newlyweds!
“What Love Can Truly Be, Indeed!”
It’s the second time around for R&B singer and former “Destiny’s Child” member, LeToya Luckett who married her Prince Charming, Tommicus Walker on December 11, 2017 in Austin, TX. The bride, in a Vera Wang gown, danced with her groom as the R&B singer, Tank, serenaded the couple with the Etta James classic “At Last”. Congrats to the newlyweds and here’s to very bright future together!
Say Yes! to the Suit (?)
Celebrity wedding planner and star of “Say Yes to the Dress!” David Tutera married Joey Toth on April 1, 2017 at the Hollywood Methodist Church in Lisa Angeles being the first same- sex couple to wed at the historical church. David discussed including his daughter, Cielo, in his proposal to Toth, he quotes: “I had practiced with Cielo for the whole week… And she looked at him in his eyes and said, ‘Will you marry us?’ He started to cry, I started to cry and his hands started to shake,” remembered Tutera. “I got on my knee, and did it the old fashioned way. He immediately said ‘yes.’ It was so beautiful.”
Best wishes to the happy couple!
