Celebrities spent the holiday weekend celebrating love in more ways than one.
The long Labor Day weekend was jam-packed with celebrity news. As the sun set on the last days of summer (theoretically, not technically), we kept track of all the buzz including who got married, who was packing on the PDA, and more!
Wedding, Wedding, Wedding (Yes, Three!)
The biggest headlines from the weekend come from many anticipated couples who finally tied the knot. Following the surprise Parisian nuptials of Brangelina, a Miami wedding took place on Friday when actress Gabrielle Union married NBA star Dwayne Wade in front of family and friends. Union wore a custom ball gown designed by Dennis Basso and Wade was accompanied by groomsmen - his two sons.
The next day, Jenny McCarthy got married in her home state Illinois. At the Hotel Baker in St. Charles, McCarthy wed her boyfriend of ten months Donnie Wahlberg. The bride was photographed wearing a fitted strapless mermaid gown holding a bouquet of red roses. Wahlberg’s younger brother Mark was not in attendance but sent his congratulations via Twitter and Instagram.
Topping off the weekend of weddings was the celebration of Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross. The two married Sunday night at the estate of Diana Ross who also reportedly initiated the ceremony. Ashlee wore a bohemian chic dress and was accompanied down the aisle by son Bronx Mowgli Wentz, her son with ex-husband Pete Wentz. Ashlee’s older (and also newly married) sister Jessica is said to have given a touching speech where she said that Ashlee and Evan are meant for each other.
And back to Brangelina, the first glimpses of the family-style wedding surfaced Monday night. Pictures of Angie’s dress, her unique veil, and the first kiss of bride and groom can be found on the cover of People, hitting stands later this week.
Carrie Underwood announced Monday night that she and NHL hubby of four years, Mike Fisher, are expecting their first child. In a Twitter post, Underwood celebrated the happy news. "In honor of ‘Labor’ Day…Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier." Both pups were pictured wearing "big brother" and "big sister" onesies.
Lauren Conrad didn’t get married like the rest of Hollywood this weekend, but she did get ready for it. The future Mrs. Tell was showered by friends in Los Angeles at her dainty and chic bridal shower shared with us on Instagram by friends and bridesmaids. Conrad is set to marry her fiancé, law graduate William Tell. "Thank you to my amazing friends and family for the best shower ever," shared Conrad.
‘Bey’ D A (Beyonce's Display of Affection)
During the 2014 Budweiser Made in America concert this weekend in Los Angeles, Beyoncé and Jay Z were pictured packing on the PDA throughout the event. Jay founded the two-day festival that took place in Los Angeles and Philadelphia. Performers included Kanye West, John Mayer, Kings of Leon, Pharrell, Williams, Iggy Azalea and more.
