Love is in the air, can you tell? After the postponement of many weddings during the COVID-19 pandemic, ceremonies are back—and the celebs are definitely on board. In 2021, we saw lavish weddings from Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, Paris Hilton, Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young, Jennifer Gates and Nayel Nassar, and more.

Can you really blame them for going all out? After two years of lockdown, if you've got the resources for a grandiose wedding, go big or go home. And in 2022, we're hoping the trend continues with even more star-studded nuptials. Ahead, all the celebrity couples who have tied the knot this year (so far).

For the ceremony, the bride wore a custom off-the-shoulder tulle dress by Rodarte, Vogue confirms. “I discovered Kate and Laura after they interviewed my mom for an article in 2014 and immediately fell in love,” Billie tells Vogue. “So, when I started thinking about who I wanted to design my wedding dress, they were the first people that came to mind. I have always been a massive fan of their work and thought their elegant, ethereal, unique style was a perfect fit for my kind of elegant, ethereal, unique personality.” Meanwhile, Rydell sported a classic Tom Ford tuxedo.

The couple has been engaged since June 2020, and they share 1-year-old son Kingston Fisher together. We couldn’t be more thrilled for them!

Jenny Slate is a married woman! The SNL alum told Marie Claire that she and her fiancé Ben Shattuck quietly tied the knot in their living room on New Year's Eve after several wedding-planning setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We were planning on a [wedding] that ended up being almost 200 people, and then now, it’s just our parents and siblings,” she told the publication. “We each invited six friends… I actually like it. I like it better. I didn’t realize how the large thing was making me feel uncomfortable, a little bit. Just a little.”

The couple has been together since 2019 and welcomed their daughter Ida Lupine in February 2021.

Danielle Brooks kicks off the year with a Miami wedding dripping with grandeur and elegance. The Orange is the New Black star wed her fiancé Dennis Gelin in January with friends and family by their side. With the recent outbreak of Omicron, the couple required attendees of their lavish wedding, planned by D’Concierge, to have a both a negative PCR and rapid test.

But COVID didn't stop the actress from having her dream wedding—she wore not one, but two exquisite gowns. Brooks walked down the aisle in a custom dress from London-based Black designer Alonuko. She gave fans a peek at the stunning gown with a gallery of images, taken by Reem Photography, that she posted on her Instagram.

For the reveal and reception, Brooks slipped into a dress designed by longtime friend Cristian Siriano. "We thought it would be best to do a first look reveal so that we could go ahead with bridal party pictures and not hold up our guests after the ceremony," she told Vogue. "I decided to wear Christian Siriano for the reveal. We have been friends ever since my career first began."

The couple also had one very special guest in attendance: their two-year-old daughter served as their flower girl in the ceremony. Congratulations to the happy family!
