10 Celebs Who Renewed Their Wedding Vows
When it comes to weddings, our attitude is definitely "the more the merrier." Sure, most couples only celebrate their love with one walk down the aisle, but why stop there when you can say "I do" for round two? On that note, get inspired by 10 celebrity couples who got their vow renewal on. If they can do it, anyone can.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Mimi and her man renewed their vows at Disneyland in 2013, and they took their theme very seriously. Mariah looked every part the princess, while Nick dressed up as Prince Charming. While this was definitely their biggest vow-renewal blowout, it should be noted the couple also re-wed in the Maldives circa 2009, Beverly Hills circa 2010, the hospital circa 2011, and the Eiffel Tower circa 2012. Sadly, Nick and Mariah didn't last a lifetime, despite all those declarations of love.
Viola Davis and Julius Tennon
How to Get Away with Murder star Viola Davis and her husband renewed their vows on Valentine's Day, aka the most romantic day of the year. Also, Oprah was there. “I wanted an experience of feeling alive,” Viola told InStyle. “There’s no better way to feel what life is truly about than the birth of a child and getting married to someone you love — really love. It's a reminder. A wake up. My career is about success but my marriage and my life is about significance.” Apparently, the couple renew their vows every few years, so expect many more cute moments to come.
Beyonce and Jay Z
Bey and Jay's first wedding was basically the most private thing ever, and their vow renewal was similarly hush-hush. Apparently, Mrs. and Mr. Carter re-tied the knot in 2014 during a family vacation in Corsica to celebrate Beyonce's 33rd birthday. "From now on, they intend to mark the day of the ceremony as their new wedding anniversary and have told friends they are focusing firmly on their future together," a source said.
Fergie and Josh Duhamel
Fergie and Josh's vow renewal came as quite a surprise to everyone — including Fergie herself. The pop star's husband took her on a private helicopter to Malibu, where hundreds of loved ones watched them tie the knot for round two. Apparently, Fergie was "crying and very emotional," which is understandable. A surprise wedding will do that to a girl.
Kris and Caitlyn Jenner
Reality TV's first couple, Kris and Caitlyn (then Bruce) Jenner, exchanged vows on Keeping Up with the Kardashians while the family was vacationing in Bora Bora. Both Kris and Caitlyn wore all white to commemorate their twentieth anniversary, and Kris prepared for the event with a casual face lift.
Seal and Heidi Klum
Supermodel Heidi Klum and her husband, Seal, opted to renew their vows every year during their marriage. The ceremonies got a ton of press, something Seal wasn't exactly into. “That was my ex-wife’s idea, to be honest,” he said after the couple's divorce. “It kind of turned into a little bit of a circus, which I wasn’t terribly fond of because, by default, I’m quite a private person...I don’t know how necessary [renewing our vows] was, but it was cool.”
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Before they parted ways, Jenny from the Block and Marc Anthony had a joint vow renewal ceremony with New York Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran and his wife, Jessica. The happy couples re-wed at a penthouse in Caesars Palace with 12 guests, and celebrated with a bottle of Dom Perignon.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
Matt and Luciana initially got married in a small courthouse ceremony to avoid paparazzi, but eventually decided to go big with a celeb-packed vow renewal in St. Lucia. "It's nice to say your vows in front of family," Matt said. "That's the point of taking the vows. These are people who will hold you to them. One of my vows was I gave her the side of the bed closer to the bathroom. And if I don't stick to that, I'm gonna hear about that from my mom, brother and father."
Tom and Gisele renewed their vows in Costa Rica just a few months after their first wedding, which only immediate family were invited to. The follow-up event was witnessed by a larger group of loved ones, and Gisele stunned with a gorgeous gown and ten-foot train. "The thing about it is, the day's for you," Tom explained of keeping his wedding simple. "It's nothing personal against anybody, but it's not about them. It's about what you and your wife need for that day."
David and Victoria Beckham
Much like Josh Duhamel, David Beckham surprised Posh Spice with a vow renewal, only theirs took place at Buckingham Palace. The event was small and described as "non-showbiz," and the couple's sons, Brooklyn and Romeo, were page boys. "[David] had personally overseen everything, from the flowers to the cake," a source said. "Even a beautiful white dress he knew she had her eye on."
