The couple decided to elope after being engaged for one month, as the "Vikings" star wrote on his Instagram page. His bride chose a classic white dress with a V-shaped neckline and a long train for their big day. She also paired it with pearl earrings, and a long veil covered in the same stones.

Photographer Gabriella Santos captured their wedding.

Pamela Anderson technically got married at the end of 2020, but photographs weren't shared until February of this year.

Photographer Heather Ross first shared a close-up shot of Anderson's corset-style ball gown — which was from the 1940s, according to People — on Instagram. She pointed out that the "dreamy" colors seen on the "Baywatch" star's dress — blue, tan, and white — were meant to represent "her beloved coastal landscape."

"The 'something blue' in Pamela's ethereal, nature-inspired wedding was seen in her vintage satin blue ribbon corset and tulle skirt, as well as the hydrangea within her bouquet and even the soft organza ribbon that I wrapped around her vegan coconut wedding cake," Ross wrote.

Anderson also wore a polka-dot Valentino veil with her dress, and Hunter rain boots underneath so that she could "run unhindered into the field where her beloved was waiting under the trees," the photographer said in another post.

Red-carpet host Erin Lim married Joshua Rhodes while wearing a cream-colored gown.

Her satin gown had a plunging neckline, a row of buttons, a high slit in the middle of its skirt, and small bell sleeves. Speaking with The Knot, Lim said she purchased the Shona Joy design — which wasn't created as a wedding gown — on Instagram.

"It was a girl in a beautiful dress going to dinner," Lim said of the dress advertisement. "And I thought, 'This is cool. It could be a dress for our casual, mini-microwedding.'"

Rich Gordon photographed Lim's ceremony.

At the end of March, "The Real" co-host Jeannie Mai walked down the aisle in a nude designer dress.

Mai's Galia Lahav gown was strapless with a sheer bodice, a floral pattern from top to bottom, and satin stripes across its full skirt. As Vogue reported, Mai had a hand in creating the dress, and she worked with her stylist and the designer to choose shades and fabrics.

"The finished product was everything I envisioned," Mai told Vogue about her dress. Photos of the TV star in the dress were taken by photographer Denis Reggie.

Raven Gates, known for her role on "The Bachelor in Paradise," chose a lace-embellished dress for her ceremony.

Gates first picked her $1,600 Watters gown in 2020, though she had to wait to wear it as a result of the pandemic, as reported by Brides. The short-sleeved dress, photographed by Charla Store, had a plunging V-shaped neckline, a semi-sheer back, and a floral pattern that extended from top to bottom.

"When I walked into the venue for the first time, it almost felt like the dress fit the venue perfectly," she told the publication.

"Top Chef" winner Kristen Kish matched her bride on their wedding day in April.

Both Kish and her wife Bianca wore black for the occasion. The chef chose a sleek suit, while Bianca opted for a halter dress and sparkling heels.

"4.18.2021," Kish wrote in her Instagram post. "Threw on some nice clothes (my favorite blazer), headed to our backyard with our own written vows in hand, had our family with us (virtually), got all sappy, and WE DID THE DAMN THING ❤️ #happilymarried #mywife."

Elizabeth Lail, who starred in the series "You," wore a custom-made dress during her May wedding.

According to Brides, Lail created the gown with designer Andrea Hawkes over Zoom. She told the publication that Hawkes would even send dresses to her so that she could try them on.

"Andrea would also send over British tea so I could pretend like I was in London at her shop," the actress told Brides. "Trying on gowns at home did present one logistical issue. I did have to lock my fiancé out of the bedroom so he wouldn't see any of the dresses!"

They ended up designing a soft gown with a V-shaped neckline, mid-length sleeves, a small slit in its skirt, and buttons in a line down the middle of its bodice.

Alex Drummond, "The Pioneer Woman" star Ree Drummond's daughter, looked classic in a strapless white dress that same month.

Photos of Grande on her wedding day, taken by Stefan Kohli, show the musician wearing a strapless Vera Wang design with a low back that showed her bra strap.

According to Vogue, the gown was inspired by the one Hepburn wore in "Funny Face" while playing the character Jo Stockton. Grande has said in the past that she's a big fan of the late movie star.

At the start of July, Gwen Stefani wore two wedding dresses for her big day.

"You need a party dress when u get to marry @blakeshelton," Stefani wrote, referencing the shorter Vera Wang design. It was also strapless with a full skirt, though the latter piece was much shorter than the one featured on her ceremony gown.

The skirt was also decorated with floral embellishments, and its bodice had a sweetheart neckline. Stefani wore the look with a floral veil, fishnet tights, and cowboy boot-style heels.
