“It was literally one of the greatest moments of my life.”

2020 was a difficult year and after surviving such a difficult period, many couples were ready to celebrate by making things official – celebrities included! Although the world hasn’t fully returned to normal this year, some famous couples decided to walk down the aisle anyway, even if their wedding wasn’t exactly what they planned.

While celebrity weddings are usually overly lavish affairs, couples like Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez, and Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, chose to host things at home only in front of their closest friends and family. Even if it wasn’t the wedding they originally planned for, they still say it was the wedding of their dreams.

Here are the celebrity couples who tied the knot this year …
