The picture-perfect wedding of Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge was set on the French Riviera in April 2023. This wedding most definitely pushed the envelope when it comes to celebrity destination weddings. The couple selected the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Rock in Antibes for their nuptials.
The beachfront sanctuary offers panoramic ocean views, overlooking the Mediterranean, and is arguably one of the most exclusive resorts in the French Riviera territory that has hosted a number of royals and politicians over its 150-plus-year history. The bride had three custom-made dresses from Chanel, one for each day of the wedding weekend events: the rehearsal dinner, the formal ceremony, and the after-party.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner
In 2017, Joe Jonas proposed to Sophie Turner with a whopping $150,000 diamond ring; so it should go without saying, the rest was history! The pair exchanged vows in a little white chapel in a Las Vegas ceremony in 2019 and hosted a more traditional wedding bash in France a few months later.
The second extravaganza took place in the south of France, in a gorgeous 18th-century chateau. The scene was entirely done up in white flowers and glass candles flooding the aisles, quite the contrast of their campy Vegas union. The couple then proceeded to have not one but TWO honeymoons because after two weddings, one honeymoon simply isn't enough. Sadly, that wedded bliss only lasted until 2023, when the two filed for divorce.
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber have been happily married for over 25 years now. Looking back on the 1998 wedding photos, it's clear that this could quite possibly be the wedding that launched beach weddings onto the bridal stage. The couple exchanged "I do" in the Bahamas on Paradise Island in a very down-to-earth fashion.
Portrayed as the epitome of the lax beach wedding, the bare-footed bride walked down the aisle in a mini lace dress with a bouquet of white flowers. So simple, yet so effective. After the nuptials, the newly married couple exchanged their informal beach attire for bathing suits and went for a marital splash in the pool. Now that's what we call the ultimate beach wedding!
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson and Kelsey Morgan Henson
The "Game of Thrones" star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson married Kelsey Morgan Henson in the actor's homeland, Iceland. We have seldom seen a bigger height difference in couples (a 6 foot 9 groom and a 5 foot 2 bride), but hey, they do look pretty dang happy!
The pair tied the knot in a mountainside ceremony, at Hotel Ranga, a luxury resort in Southern Iceland, over the summer of 2020. The bride selected a short and sweet dress for the day, while the groom opted for a traditional B&W suit. The outfits can be seen on Instagram where Bjornson is holding his wife, overlooking the rugged Icelandic terrain.
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
Rocked romance! Frontman of Maroon 5, Adam Levine, and Victoria's Secret cutie Behati Prinsloo got hitched in 2014. In a secluded romantic ceremony in front of 300 guests, the couple exchanged vows at the flourishing Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico.
Serenely stowed away at the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains, the 25-acre organic farm boasts an intimate farm experience. The beautiful bride wore a sleek, white, celebration-ready gown designed by Alexander Wang, revealing sheer panels on the torso and, down past both hips — an absolute masterpiece. The couple now shares two gorgeous girls, Dusty and Gio.
