After a year (plus) of pared-down guest lists and socially distanced receptions, big celebrity weddings came roaring back in 2021 and will no doubt continue into 2022.
JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers
At last! Six years after getting engaged on The Bachelorette in 2016, JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are married. On May 14, the Bachelor Nation couple said their vows at the Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, California. The bride wore a stunning mermaid-style wedding dress by Ines di Santo.
“It sounds cliché, but I really am marrying my best friend,” Fletcher told . “Everything that’s happened in our relationship has only made us stronger. And we just feel so lucky. It feels so good! It took a while to get here but it was all so worth it. We are FINALLY married!!! Can’t wait to start this next chapter of our life together.”
Jack White and Olivia Jean
Jack White and Olivia Jean got engaged and married in one go! On April 8, the Grammy-winning musician proposed to his girlfriend during a concert at the Masonic Temple in Detroit. He asked the Black Belles frontwoman to marry him during their duet of the song “Hotel Yorba” by his former band, The White Stripes.
Referencing the song in an Instagram post about the happy moment, he wrote, “‘Let’s get married in a big cathedral by a priest.’”
The singer then addressed the crowd, asking, “It’s been such a great day, mind if we get married right now?” The onstage wedding was officiated by Ben Swank, the cofounder of White’s label, Third Man Records. A rep confirmed to the publication that “the marriage is legal and valid.”
Jack White was married to his former bandmate Meg White from 1996 to 2000 and to supermodel Karen Elson from 2005 to 2013. This will be Olivia Jean’s first marriage.
