Karlie Kloss Marries Josh Kushner! (And Gets Snubbed by Taylor Swift?)

Karlie Kloss is a married woman.

But is she also a scorned friend?

Karlie Kloss Wedding Pic

The 26-year-old supermodel exchanged vows this week with her 33-year-old businessman boyfriend, Joshua Kushner, sharing a photo from the couple's special day on social media.

"10.18.2018," she wrote as a very simple caption to the above image on Instagram.

A represenative for the stars has confirmed to People Magazine that Kloss and Kushner held a small, Jewish ceremony in upstate New York on Thursday, with fewer than 80 people in attendance.

(They will also host a larger celebration for friends and loved ones some time this spring.)

The Project Runway host donned a custom Dior gown for the ceremony and was "beaming with happiness," claims a friend who was in attendance.

But this friend was NOT Taylor Swift.

Karlie Kloss Arrives

Swift was not at her close friend's wedding, raising many questions among fans who have been wondering if these two are still close.

Kloss' new husband, it ought to be noted, is the brother of Jared Kushner.

Jared Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump, who is the daughter of President Donald Trump.

President Donald Trump is an evil, mentally imbalanced human being who is feuding with Swift due to the latter's endorsement of two Democratic candidates in Tennessee.

So, it's only natural to wonder whether Kloss' connection to the Kushner family has caused a rift in her friendship with Swift.

Heck, maybe Swift was afraid a member of the Trump family would actually be in attendance at the ceremony.

It turns out that Taylor was simply in Australia on Thursday, as she noted herself on Instagram.

This trip was likely planned for several weeks, if not months, in advance, but we still can't help but speculate over why she couldn't cancel the visit in order to attend Kloss' wedding.

Something does seem to be amiss here.

Kushner proposed back in July with a high-carat cushion cut diamond in a platinum solitaire setting with a diamond pavé band.

As you can see above, Kloss was not shy about showing the rock off at the time.

But she also said some nice things about Kushner, focusing on who he is as a person more than just the diamond he could afford to get for her.

Karlie Kloss, Fiance

“I love you more than I have words to express," Karlie wrote this summer as a caption to the picture immediately above.

She added:

"Josh, you’re my best friend and my soulmate. I can’t wait for forever together. Yes a million times over."

In September, Kloss opened up about her engagement a bit more, telling Vogue:

"The proposal was romantic and sweet. We spent the weekend in upstate New York, just the two of us."

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

But not to Karlie's new brother-in-law.

That guy sucks so very much.

John David Duggar and Abbie Burnett: Wedding Date & Invitations Revealed!

Well, another Duggar wedding is almost upon us.

We know, we know -- it feels like these things happen so often it should be news when there are no Duggars planning to get hitched. 

But this time, there's a pleasant change of pace, as it'll be two full-blown grownups tying the knot.

John David Duggar and Abbie Burnett got engaged back in July, and though they proceeded through all of the usual steps of the courtship process, these two are not your typical Duggar couple.

For one, when John and Abbie say "I do," they'll be about a decade older than the typical Duggar couple.

On top of that, John David and Abbie seem much less concerned with tradition than his siblings.

Will this result in a wedding that looks and feels radically different from the usual Duggar ceremony we all know so well?

Jump into the gallery below for all the available intel on John David and Abbie's big day ...

1. The Happy Couple

In some ways, John David and Abbie are the typical Duggar couple. But in other respects, they're blazing their own trail.

2. Taking Their Time

John david duggar and abbie burnett engagement pic
At 28 and 26, respectively, John David and Abbie are the oldest Duggar couple to tie the knot in recent years. Typically, Jim Bob and Michelle's offspring are encouraged to get hitched while still in their teens.

3. Rule-Breakers

Perhaps it's for that reason that the couple hasn't been as strictly bound by the infamous Duggar "courtship rules" as previous couples.

4. Rebels (By Duggar Standards)

Sources say John David and Abbie have been going on unchaperoned dates and -- gasp! -- even skipping church together!

5. Going Their Own Way

Okay, so it's not like they're engaging in premarital sex, but these two are clearly not your typical Duggar couple

6. The Invitation

Even John David and Abbie's newly-released wedding invitation demonstrates the ways in which the couple has decided to break with tradition. It seems they've even decided to be less secretive about the date than JD's siblings ...

Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers: Married!

Back in July, we told you that Denise Richards is joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a full housewife.

She has, and she's already been at the center of some drama with the cast, but her personal life has also seen a big change.

On Saturday, Denise Richards married Aaron Phypers!

Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers

Speaking to Bravo's Daily Dish, Denise Richards confirmed her marriage to Aaron.

"Yep, the rumors are true," Denise confirms. This is my husband, Aaron, and we just got married."

That is so exciting! Denise has not always had the best of luck in romance -- remember, she was once married to Charlie Sheen.

This romance (and now marriage) with Aaron is a huge step up.

"I am so happy to officially be married to the love of my life," Denise declares.

Denise Richards and Husband Aaron Phypers

Denise has frequently gushed about Aaron on Instagram, from taking photos of his nearly nude sleeping form (with permission, we hope) to pics of the two side-by-side.

She also plugged her new role on Bravo, of course.

Ever the dutiful Housewife, Denise says: "I can’t wait for everyone to go on this incredible journey with me this season on ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

Her timing -- a wedding so soon into her Real Housewives career -- could not be better.

Denise gushes about her foray into the reality franchise: "It has been a wild ride so far!"

Denise Richards Aaron Phypers Wedding Beach Pic

Denise had a subtler message about her wedding on Instagram, allowing her fans and followers to connect the dots.

In the captions of an image of two rings touching within a heart inscribed upon the beach, Denise wrote an understated caption.

"So this happened," she writes.

In case anyone had missed the significance or simply wondered about the date, she included: "9-8-18"

That was a very tasteful way of letting people know about the good news.

Denise Richards and Mark Zunino

Designer Mark Zunino shared a photo of him with Denise as she modeled her wedding dress.

"24 hours to make a wedding dress?" he wrote in the captions. "NO PROBLEM!!"

"Congratulations to Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers!" he added.

He expressed his gratitude: "Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!"

Just because a wedding was a small or private affair doesn't mean that designers can't get their due publicity.

Denise Richards in a Silver Gown

We are so interested in learning the story of why Denise apparently needed her dress done in just 24 hours.

We wonder if viewers will understand the context for that when they watch this upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Denise Richards is already at the center of drama for the show, which is exactly what producers had hoped to see.

It doesn't sound like stars are going to be nice to her on account of her preexisting celebrity status.

Of course, that won't be a surprise for Denise and we're sure that she won't take it personally.

After all, she is a huge fan of the show and hte franchise. This is a great deal for everyone.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Share New Wedding Details!

On Tuesday, Colton Underwood as confirmed as the next Bachelor. Responses were mixed, but he has to be less controversial than the last dude, right?

Speaking of the infamous Arie Luyendyk Jr., his wedding date with his season's runner-up is looming closer.

And he's giving fans a sneak peek of what wedding guests will soon see for themselves.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham in Portland

On Wednesday, Arie Luyendyk Jr. shared a snap his save the date cards with his fans and followers on Instagram.

"Sending these out this week!" Arie writes in the captions of his photo.

Arie continues, writing: "January can’t come soon enough."

Some might mean that they're looking forward to winter weather after this hellish summer, but Arie is excited about his wedding date.

Take a look:

Arie Luyendyk Jr. & Lauren Burnham - Save The Date

In the process of sharing the card, Arie confirmed the wedding date and location.

This wedding will take place on January 12, 2019 in Maui, Hawaii.

The precise venue is the historic Haiku Mill, so guests can look forward to lush tropical gardens and the ruins of a 150-year-old sugar cane mill.

A wedding in Hawaii for people who don't live there is very much a destination wedding. Some would say that he and Lauren should have sent out these save the dates at least six months in advance, if not earlier.

But we imagine that Lauren is eager to walk down the aisle -- out of fear that Arie might once again change his mind.

Lauren Burnham and Arie Luyendyk Jr. Engagement Photo

Arie also thanked the online marketplace, Minted, for the save the date design.

Arie and Lauren may have fallen in love and even gotten engaged on camera, but they won't be allowing television cameras at their nuptials.

"It’s not your typical beach wedding," the couple recently told The View.

"And it’s a private wedding," they explained. "So not on TV." So all of their teasing about having a TV wedding was for nothing.

Instead of some big, lucrative TV wedding, they'll have "just a close group of friends. Probably 100 guests."

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Kiss Pic

"Lauren and I flew to the Maldives at The Bachelor and Becca’s request," Arie shared last month on Instagram.

"It’s a conversation that unfortunately won’t be shown," he admitted. "But it was really positive for all of us."

Arie admits: "You can imagine this trip could have been very difficult for Lauren but she has supported and stood by me in all of this. ..."

"I thank and love her everyday because of that," Arie added.

The controversial ex-Bachelor concluded: "We wish Becca all the happiness in the world and can’t wait to see how tonight goes!"

Lauren Burnham and Arie Luyendyk Jr. in the Maldives

While Arie and even Lauren may be supportive of Becca, she was the wronged party, so that's only fair.

A lot of the Bachelor Nation is not yet prepared to forgive Arie for his brutal breakup with Becca. And, quite frankly, a lot of viewers didn't like him before that, either.

Arie's best bet is probably to wait. Eventually, his brand may recover as his antics become more of a distant memory. Time heals all brands, it seems.

On the other hand, if Colton Underwood turns out to be worse as the leading man, it's very possible that fans will gloss over Arie's behavior.

But it's difficult to imagine a less popular Bachelor than Arie happening any time soon.

Abbie Burnett and John David Duggar Wedding Date: Revealed!

Attention, Counting On fans:

You can stop sending Abbie Burnett and John David Duggar congratulations now on their engagement...

... and start sending them wedding gifts instead.

Impending Newlyweds

If you think you'll be snagging an invite to their big day, that is.

Just a few weeks after Burnett and Duggar surprised followers by announcing their plans to marry, we think we now know the date on which they will exchange vows (and kiss for the first time ever).

A few astute Internet users have actually tracked down Abbie and John David's wedding registery, which includes a few items at Bed, Bath & Beyond.

If you look at the top-left corner in the screen shot below, you'll see that the "event" at which this gift is meant to be presented is...

... January 19, 2019!

bed gift

That seems to be it. That appears to be the John David Duggar and Abbie Burnett wedding date.

Makes sense, right?

The couple got engaged in July and will now be getting hitched in January, which is just about the usual short period of time members of this famous family usually wait between proposal and wedding.

Duggar and Burnett confirmed to the world that they were courting back in late June.

Many fans had been concerned about John David because he's ancient by Duggar standards (28 years old) and had not yet settled down with a mate.

But that has all changed now.

John David Duggar and Abbie Burnett Engagement Pic

Abbie works as a nurse and lives in Oklahoma.

She says she "connected" with the reality star at a church event in her home state... and things blossomed from there.

"It's been a wonderful journey thus far," John David said back upon revealing his courtship to critics and supporters.

Fast forward just one month and Duggar and Burnett had the following to say:

“Wow! We are engaged! This feels even more real than before! It was a special moment to share together.

"The proposal and the ‘YES’ really solidified that we want to spend the rest of our lives together. One of the most amazing things about following Christ is being able to trust Him to direct your path and lead your life.

"We are so thankful that He led us to one another. Now we need to start thinking about a wedding!"

John David Duggar, Girlfriend Abbie

Aside from going straight from courting to planning a wedding, Burnett and Duggar have been making headlines of late for breaking a ton of rules lately.

For example, they've been caught going on unchaperoned dates and even grabbing each other's butts at Walmart.

They've also been skipping church and Abbie has been far more active on social media than is typically allowed within the confines of the Duggar family rules.

But whatever it takes to get John David married off and procreating, right?

How else will this cult keep its bloodline going?

David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts: Married!

It's been a little over two years since David Hasselhoff became engaged to Hayley Roberts.

The famous actor is 66, and his fiancee is 38. 

But she's no longer his fiancee -- she's his wife. The two are now officially married!

David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts Together

Us Weekly reports that David Hasselhoff's rep confirmed to them that he and Hayley have married.

The two tied the knot on Tuesday, July 31.

The long-awaited nuptials took place in the southern region of Puglia, Italy.

Italy is easily one of the most romantic places to have a destination wedding.

And we also have a few details about the ceremony itself.

David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts, Mirror Selfie

According to The Blast, the 66-year-old actor and the 38-year-old model did not have one of those huge productions of a wedding, but they did invite guests.

The guest list was limited to close friends and, of course, family, giving the ceremony an intimate feeling.

Among the guests, of course, were David Hasselhoff's daughters Taylor, 28, and Hayley, 25.

(No, that is not a typo -- in case it has slipped your mind, his wife and daughter not only have the same first name, they spell it the same way)

We're sure that they were overjoyed at getting to witness the loving union between these two longtime lovers.

David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts on Instagram

This romance has been blazing for years -- ever since David and Hayley (his wife, not his daughter) met in a random encounter at a hotel, way back in 2011.

Hayley asked him for his autograph. He agreed -- and asked for her number in exchange.

That's probably not the response that she expected from the Baywatch and Knight Rider alum, but they started dating.

Then, in 2016, on a romantic picnic lunch in Malibu, he proposed to her.

And she said yes.

Hayley Roberts and David Hasselhoff Photo

David knew that marrying someone new -- especially someone so much younger than he is -- was going to be a little different for his daughters.

"I told my girls what I was going to do," he actor shared after announcing the engagement in 2016. "And they were both really supportive."

"It’s tough," he said. "No one wants to see their parents split up."

That is mostly true.

"But they love Hayley," David said. "And they’re just happy for me."

David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts

The age difference isn't the hugest in the world. Unlike some celebrities, he's not marrying a woman as young as or younger than his daughters.

We imagine that the only real awkward part of this relationship is that Hayley (his wife) and Hayley (his daughter) have the same name.

But plenty of families have multiple people with the same name, and they've had seven years to become accustomed to it.

Our heartfelt congratulations go out to the newly married couple.

We hope that their marriage brings them many years of blissful happiness.

Kaley Cuoco Shares the BEST Wedding Photo, Featuring Her Furbabies

Three weeks ago, Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook got married! And while their honeymoon was wasn't exactly picture perfect, the actual wedding was beautiful.

Now, Kaley has taken to social media to share the best wedding photo of them all.

It features the newly married couple with their five most important guests.

Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook, Wedding Photo with Dogs

"#tbt," Kaley wrote on Instagram late Thursday evening. "To what I think is the best family wedding photo ever."

While some would argue that it's not really a throwback if it's from a few weeks ago and you're only now sharing it, it's difficult to dispute the rest of her claim.

In this precious photo, we see Kaley and Karl ... and their family.

Their four dogs stand lovingly with them, but that's not all.

Look in the background and you'll see Kaley's horse.

Kaley Cuoco with Dogs, Before Her Wedding

Kaley and Karl actually have a number of pets, including a couple of rescue pit bulls named Shirley and Norman.

In the photo at the top, you can see Kaley holding little Ruby in her arms for the portrait.

The couple has multiple show horses, plus a mini-horse named Shmooshy.

Kaley is particularly passionate about pit bulls, in part because they have a massively unfair reputation that leads to their mistreatment and even death.

Contrary to how they are portrayed by alarmists and in the media, pit bulls are naturally gentle dogs with a caretaker's disposition. Like humans, they can become aggressive if they have been tormented with violence or otherwise mistreated.

Biologically, the most aggressive dogs are actually dachshunds. (Yes, really)

Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook, Wedding Dance

Before Kaley and Karl even began to date, she was telling friends and family that her next man needed to be a dog lover.

It is so important for couples -- particularly those looking for a long-term commitment with each other -- to have certain things in common.

Sometimes, religious differences can be managed -- especially if a couple isn't planning on having children.

But if one loves dogs and the other does not, that's a potential problem.

And plenty of dog-lovers would consider someone not lovings dogs to be not just a deal-breaker, but a huge red flag.

Kaley Cuoco Reception Photo

As we mentioned, their wedding was great. Their honeymoon wasn't exactly a romantic dream.

In fact, Kaley Cuoco spent the honeymoon in the hospital, undergoing some much-needed shoulder surgery.

Fortunately, the surgery was not emergency and had been planned about a year in advance.

It was non-urgent, and Kaley decided that she'd rather wait to recover from surgery (recovery is usually painful and is never fun) until after she and Karl tied the knot.

She's spent the past couple of weeks recovering at home.

Kaley Cuoco Recovers from Surgery

If Kaley's family wedding photo rubbed you the wrong way -- maybe because you object to the idea that dogs (or a horse) can be family -- keep that in mind.

Specifically, when you're dating. If you don't feel that special connection to dogs or horses or other animals, maybe find someone who feels the way that you do.

We're so glad that Kaley found Karl, because the two of them can share their passion for their furbabies within their relationship.

Mike Sorrentino to Lauren Pesce: Let’s Hurry and Get Married Before I Go to Jail!

Well, he might be living up to his nickname more than ever these days, because Mike Sorrentino is stuck in a seriously complex situation.

If you watched Jersey Shore Family Vacation this season, you know that Mike proposed to Lauren Pesce, she said yes, and plans are already in place to populate the tri-state area with dozens of mini-Sitches.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino & Lauren Pesce

Unfortunately, there's a minor roadblock standing in the way of Mike and Lauren's domestic bliss.

When the focus briefly shifted from Ronnie's never-ending emotional meltdown, JSFV reminded us that Sorrentino is facing prison sentence for tax evasion.

While Mike has gone to great lengths to clean up his act in the years since his legal entanglement began, it's unlikely that he'll be able to avoid doing some hard time.

Which means, of course, that he and Lauren don't have the luxury of a long engagement.

“They are working out the exact date now, as well as the location for the wedding and venue for the reception,” a source close to the couple tells Radar Online.

Mike Sorrentino Proposes to Lauren Pesce

Mike is scheduled to be sentenced on September 7, and his lawyers have reportedly informed him that he should be prepared to serve at least two years behind bars.

Fortunately, Lauren says she's willing to wait for Mike for as long as she needs to.

“They are both hoping for leniency. But it does not matter to Lauren how long he has to go to prison,” the insider says.

“She will stand by him no matter what. She will be visiting him in prison as often as she is allowed.

Even though Mike might not begin serving his sentence until several months after he's sentenced, he and Lauren are planning to tie the knot this summer, just to be safe.

The original plan was for Sorrentino and Pesce to get hitched on the second season of JSFW, but a rushed production schedule put the kibosh on that plan.

The Situation Proposes!

But don't worry, unlike past Shore weddings, the entire guido crew will be in attendance, and most of Mike's castmates will be a part of the wedding party.

(We're guessing Ronnie was the only one left out.)

Insiders say Mike and Lauren hope to spend at least four months living as man and wife before his sentence begins.

And of course, they'll be hard at work making those little baby Situations.

As difficult as Mike's current situation is, those who know him best say he's never been happier -- and they credit Lauren with saving his life.

“Everyone is just so proud of Mike for getting sober Opens a New Window. , and are just as close with Lauren as they are with him," says the source.

Cardi B and Offset: Married!

Cardi B and Offset are expecting their first child and the public believed that the two were engaged. They are not.

As it turns out, Cardi and Offset got married in a secret wedding ceremony ... all the way back in September of 2017. The public engagement that we all saw was just a sham.

Sounds fake, right? But Cardi herself has confirmed the news. Take a look:

Cardi B and Offset

Cardi B prefaced her confirmation by tweeting:

"This why i name my album 'Invasion of privacy' cause people will do the most to be nosey about your life," she wrote, commenting on one of the great pitfalls of being a celebrity.

Cardi then went on to express a degree of fatalism about how fans can be intrusive.

Succinctly, she wrote: "Welp f--k it."

"There are so many moments that I share with the world," Cardi's tweet began.

That makes sense, given that she's on social media in the first place.

Cardi B Secret Wedding Confession

The "Bodak Yellow" singer goes on to explain that she still very much values her privacy.

"And there are moments," Cardi writes. "that I want to keep for myself!"

That makes sense. She may be a public figure -- and by choice -- but she still has a right to privacy.

Cardi explains: "Getting married was one of those moments!"

Note that she says was. As in, she has already done so.

She is already confirming what many fans already believed -- that she and Offset are not merely engaged, but have gotten married.

The wedding was secret, but the marriage is no longer under wraps.

Offset and Cardi B

Many fans are of course wondering why Cardi would not only keep it private, but have a secret wedding in the first place.

She understands that, and so she does the best that she can to explain her reasoning.

"Our relationship was so new," Cardi writes.

That is not normally cited as a reason for marriage, but okay.

She then describes how the two of them were "breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing to do."

Cardi acknowledges these struggles, "but we [were] so in love."

Ah, yes, love. Usually a healthy component in marriages.

"We didn't want to lose each other," Cardi explains.

Cardi B at 2018 MET Gala

Cardi even sheds some light on how this secret wedding went down.

"We found someone to marry us," Cardi writes. "And she did, just the two of us and my cousin."

To clarify, we're reasonably confident that she's saying that her cousin is the one who officiated the marriage. Cardi and her cousin did not both marry Offset.

Cardi describes the powerful occassion.

"I said I do," Cardi writes. "With no dress, no makeup, and no ring!"

Hey, plenty of people have nude weddings. You don't need a dress to say "yes."

So Cardi explains the very public proposal that Offset made -- a proposal that the world now knows was a sham.

"I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me have that special moment that every girl dreams of," Cardi gushes.

She describes "when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!!"

(Has anyone else noticed that her writing rhymes a lot?)

Cardi B & Offset Image

Cardi finishes her message.

"Well now since you lil nosey f--ks know," Cardi writes with what we assume is a playful tone. "At least ya can stop saying I had a baby out of wedlock."

That's fair. Though that sort of thing really shouldn't matter.

It's worth noting that Cardi B's televised wedding, of which so many fans had fantasized, could have been worth $1 million.

Did nosy fans screw up that whole idea ... or was Cardi never going to have a big, official wedding anyway?

Congratulations to Cardi on her secretly wedded bliss. And extra congratulations to Offset, since he landed an incredibly gorgeous and talented woman.

Kat Von D and Rafael Reyes: MARRIED!!!

Congratulations are in order for Kat Von D!

And her HUSBAND, Rafael Reyes!

Kat Von D is Pregnant

That's right, yesterday Kat married Rafael, also known as Leafar Seyer, his stage name with his band, Prayers.

Or, well they were technically already married -- they tied the knot back in February in a quickie ceremony.

Back then, she took to Instagram to call Rafael "my soul's mate, my mind's twin, my best friend," and he was pretty gushy about her too, calling her "the girl of my dreams."

And even though it's only been a few months since then, it looks like they're more in love than ever, since they had their big wedding this weekend!

The whole thing really is just so sweet, and also so stylish -- wait till you see Kat's dress!

But before the actual wedding -- on Friday after the rehearsal dinner -- Kat took to social media once again to express her absolute happiness, along with a picture of some flowers.

Kat Von D flowers

"Such a beautifully emotional day today," she wrote, explaining that the next day she and Rafael "will have our wedding ceremony for our close friends + family."

"This has been the sweetest, most stress-free experience where we continuously fell in love with each other all over again with each day counting down."

As for the flowers, she said that they are three carnations that a friend brought them, and that they "represent him, me, and our sweet baby boy we are adding to our family."

Because in case you missed it, she's pregnant, too!

"All I can say right now," Kat continued, "is that I am so grateful fo my dear friends, and for my sweet husband."

"Lastly, thank you all for the love and for understanding that starting tomorrow we will most likely be stepping away from our phones for a while to be as present as possibly on such a beautiful day."

But thankfully, Rafael did grab his phone to give us a quick little peak at the beautiful bride!

Kat Von D Wedding Dress

Can you even handle this beautiful Beetlejuice realness?!

In the caption of the photo, Rafael told us that "In a couple hours I'll be walking down the aisle with the love of my life," and he added "EN VIDA Y EN MUERTE," which is what they've both been writing in their captions about each other for a while now.

It translates to "in life and in death," which is nice, right?

We don't have too much more information on the wedding yet, since they do seem to be off enjoying this special time together.

But in case you wanted more info on that amazing dress, it's by designer Adolfo Sanchez!

A friend was also kind enough to share a photo from the reception -- you can get a full look at the dress, plus the kind of decorations you'd expect from a Kat Von D wedding.

The friend congratulated the couple, saying "You are both beautiful people and deserve a lifetime of happiness together. Thanks for letting me be part of your amazing wedding!"

Kat Von D ceremony

And honestly, in case you're not getting our feelings on this, it really does look like it was an amazing wedding.

For the record, this is Kat's second marriage -- she was married to tattoo artist and Ink Master judge Oliver Peck from 2003 to 2007.

(She did have a string of bad relationships and engagements between then and now, but let's not bring up such bad memories during such a happy time.)

This is Rafael's first marriage, but he does have a daughter from a previous relationship.

In a few months, they'll welcome their baby, a boy they've said they'll name Leafar.

Once again, congratulations!!!

Royal Wedding 2018: The Official Portraits Are Here!!

Meghan Markle didn't merely marry Prince Harry this past Saturday.

She married into Prince Harry's famous and very wealthy family.

And this development has now been driven home via the release of the official Royal Portraits from Kensington Palace.

Official Royal Wedding Photo

Snapped in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle after Meghan and Harry magical carriage procession through London, the picture were shot by fashion photographer, Alexi Lubomirski.

This is the same artist who took the couple’s memorable engagement photos at Frogmore House in Windsor late last year.

The first image (above) is a truly epic gathering of the entire royal family (minus four-week-old Prince Louis, who stayed home at the palace because... come on, he's four weeks old).

Include in this snapshot is the little bridal party and Meghan’s proud mother, Doria Ragland.

(As you've likely read about by now, Meghan's father, Thomas, suffered a heart attack last week and then underwent a heart procedure. He was unable to make the trip.)

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from their Wedding day," opens the Kensington Palace Twitter caption alongside this photo, adding:

"These photographs were taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski at Windsor Castle, following the carriage procession. #RoyalWedding."

Also featured in the photo set is a picture of just Harry and Meghan with their adorable page boys and bridesmaids.

And it's beyond precious...

Meghan, Harry and Kids

Led by Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eight other children include several of Harry and Meghan’s godchildren and children of their friends.

They are:

Florence van Cutsem, 3; Remi Litt, 6 and her sister Rylan, 7; Ivy Mulroney, 4; Zalie Warren, 2; Jasper Dyer, 6; and twins Brian and John Mulroney, 7.

"The duke and duchess would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday.

“They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and those who watched on television across the U.K., Commonwealth and around the world."

Finally, this three-photo release concludes with a romantic snapshot of the brand new bride and groom, looking as happy as two people can be:

Royal Bride and Groom

Meghan and Harry's wedding came six months after the couple announced their engagement to the world.

It went off without a hitch, but with plenty of memorable moments.

Markle, for example, paid tribute to Princess Diana by wearing something blue.

She also stunned and inadvertedly seduced millions of people around the world by changing into a sleek white dress for her evening reception.

Just... wow, right?

Royal Party Time

There was also the kiss outside the chapel and the rendition of "Stand By Me" that was sung right before Meghan and Harry exchanged vows.

The vows did not include the word "obey," which many have taken as a subtle pro-feminism stance by Markle's part.

We approve.

Check out the exchange below:

“It has been an incredible honor and privilege to document The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family; from the engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding and family portraits on Saturday,” Lubomirski said in a statement, concluding:

“This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget.”

The same goes for all who witnessed this blessed event.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: Watch Them Exchange Vows!

Hey! Prince Harry got married to Meghan Markle on Saturday, May 19!

Perhaps you've heard.

Perhaps you've also read through the extensive coverage ofthe Royal Wedding on The Hollywood Gossip or, for some reason, on other websites around the Internet.

But we're guessing there's one major moment that you may have missed.

And that was arguably the most romantic and important moment of all...

... the moment Meghan and Harry vowed to love each other for all of eternity.

In the following video, we're first treated Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir singing an incredible rendition of "Stand By Me."

From there, we're taken to the Royal Exchanging of Vows, as Markle rocks her amazing wedding gown and then she and Harry make certain special promises to each other.

The footage may need to be watched with a box of Kleenex by your side.

"I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward," says Harry to open his vows, adding:

"For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God's holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow."

And then Markle echoes this sentiment:

I Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God's holy law.

In the presence of God I make this vow.

Following his marriage, Harry is now the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel and will be known around Kensington Palce as His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex.

Markle, meanwhile, is Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.

Pretty cool, huh?

But those titles would not be possible without the vows exchanged below.

Meghan Markle: How Did She Honor Princess Diana at the Royal Wedding?

As you've no doubt heard by now, Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in an unforgettable ceremony at Windsor Castle this morning.

At this point, virtually every aspect of the royal wedding has been dissected on social media and in the tabloids.

Meghan Markle Wedding Close-Up

There have been in-depth discussions about Meghan and Harry's celebrity guests; the moving ceremony that incorporated elements of the cultures in which both newlyweds were raised; and of course, the fabulous dress worn by the new Duchess of Sussex.

But some of the more subtle details of the ceremony have been largely overlooked.

For example, there's been little coverage of the moving ways in which Meghan and Harry paid tribute to his late mother, Princess Diana.

The most poignant tribute to the late Princess Di may have been the inclusion of her most beloved flower in Meghan's 16-foot veil.

"The spring blooms include Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’ favorite flower," a statement from Kensington Palace read.

Meghan and Harry's Second Outfits

"The couple specifically chose them to be included in Ms. Markle’s bouquet to honor the memory of the late Princess on this special day."

For her second outfit of the day (pictured above) Meghan combined her something borrowed with her something blue by sporting an aquamarine ring from Princess Diana's private collection.

Meg also kept an unofficial British tradition alive by collaborating with a female British designer to craft the perfect dress, just as Di and Kate Middleton did.

As for Harry, his signals that his mother was on his mind were a bit more subtle but no less potent.

Royal watchers believe Harry's tendency to bite his lower lip was inherited from Diana:

"This is a micro-expression," human behavioral expert Susan Constantine tells Good Housekeeping.

Markle Wedding Dress

"In this deeply personal moment, Harry is trying to conceal his emotions."

And that's not the only way in which Harry's body language spoke volumes, as royal experts noted that he flouted custom by watching Meg walk down the aisle:

"At a British wedding, the groom and his best man (or supporter) will face the altar as the bride walks down the aisle," says Myka Meira of Beaumont Etiquette.

"He won’t turn to look at her until she is beside him."

Those Brits, they're an understated bunch.

Royal Wedding Dress Debate: Who Wore It Better?

On Saturday afternoon, it finally happened.

As documented in detail, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married in London.

The former Suits actress and the son of Princess Diana said "I Do" in front of hundreds of guests in attendance at St. George's, not to mention thousands lining the street outside and millions watching at home.

But we're not here right now to talk about those two romantic words.

We're here to discuss four equally famous words:

Who. Wore. It. Best.

The subjects in this case are the two Royal Brides from the past decade, Kate Middleton and Mrs. Markle.

The former, of course, tied the knot with Prince William back in 2011 in an event whose anticipation we never thought could be topped until today.

At the time, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a lovely lace Alexander McQueen gown designed by Sarah Burton, the fashion house's creative director.

The now-legendary gown featured long lace sleeves, a v-neckline and an extremely long train.

Kate’s dress was also composed of French Chantilly lace and English Cluny lace throughout the bodice, skirt and underskirt.

Here. Take a look below in order to refresh your memory:

Kate Middleton Wedding Dress

Markle, meanwhile, went with Givenchy.

She donned an ensemble by the fashion house's creative director Clare Waight Keller.

It featured a boat neckline bodice, long sleeves and a sheer cascading veil adorned with lace trim.

The delicate veil was actually made from silk tulle and it included a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.

Check it out here:

Meghan Markle Wedding Gown

Both women looked gorgeous. Stunning. Beautiful in every way possible.

About this there can be no debate.

But let's be honest now: While the world is standing up and applauding Meghan and Harry on their big day and wishing them the very best of luck, they're also engaged in a different kind of debate.

It's the kind summed up by the quartet of words we jotted down above:

Who wore her Royal Wedding Dress best, Middleton or Markle?

Go ahead and vote the poll below to make your opinion known:

You must pick one: Who wore her Royal Wedding Dress best, Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton? View Poll »

It's worth noting that Middleton's dress grew to be so iconic and so memorable that H&M designed a similar version that retails for the affordable price of $299.

Will Markle's gown create such demand?

Will designers be lining up to essentially copy it and offer it at a discount to the masses?

It's far too early to say.

However, this much we can state with certainty:

Prince William and Prince Harry are both very lucky men. They married stunning women with terrific fashion taste.

Everyone here is a winner in the broad sense of the word... but only one of these brides can be a winner in the specific sense of this post.

So we ask again: Which Royal Wedding Dress do you like best?

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s Star-Studded Wedding: Which Celebs Were Invited?

Moments ago, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were married in an unforgettable ceremony at Windsor Castle.

Meghan looked flawless in a Givenchy dress, and Harry was dapper as always in his military uniform.

Harry and Meghan Kiss!

Which is all to the good, as the newlyweds had some A-list guests competing for the spotlight.

Royal weddings are typically attended by a few celebrities, but they're generally not as star-studded as Harry and Meghan's.

It's a testament to the strength of Meghan's Hollywood ties that some of the biggest names in the entertainment world made the trip to London for her big day.

For starters, the closest thing that America has to a queen - Oprah Winfrey herself - was in attendance.

Sadly, she didn't give in to the temptation to start handing out cars to the assembled dignitaries.

Of course, Oprah certainly wasn't the only A-lister on hand.

Among the few that publicly confirmed in advance that they would be attending were George and Amal Clooney.

Amal turned heads in a yellow Stella McCartney dress with an asymmetrical train.

The human rights attorney's connection to Meghan is a powerful one - sources say she advised the actress on London hairdressers shortly after Markle made her move to the UK.

Needless to say, ties don't get much stronger than that.

The Clooneys are There

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian were also on hand.

Alexis is a co-founder of the social media platform Reddit.

Serena, of course, needs no introduction.

Williams rocked a blush cocktail dress and got into the spirit of a royal wedding with some elaborate headgear.

Speaking of international sports icons, it wouldn't be a major UK social event if the Beckhams weren't in attendance.

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian!

Yes, Posh and Becks looked stylish as ever matching black ensembles.

Very subdued. Kim and Kanye would be proud.

Victoria might be pulling double duty today, as its being rumored that the Spice Girls will perform at Harry and Meghan's reception.

It's sort of unfair of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex to pull off such a baller event right at the beginning or wedding season.

Being a bridesmaid in your former dorm mate's ceremony next week just can't measure up, ya know?

David and Victoria Beckham at the Royal Wedding

Also in attendance were Elton John, Priyanka Chopra, Joss Stone, and of course, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Meghan's onscreen love interest - Suits star Patrick J. Adams - also made the guest list.

He posted a loving tribute to his former co-star on Twitter last night:

"Going to bed now and thinking a lot about the strange surreal and wonderful day my friend Meghan is going to have tomorrow. Meghan - wherever you are - we are so grateful to be here to watch you both take this monumental step together," he wrote, adding:

"Love deeply and live well."

Sound advice, and we're sure both Meghan and Harry took it to heart.
