Two Couples Who Don’t Believe in Long Engagements

Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson – September 27, 2008

The detail hungry media was just gearing up their wedding speculations when this couple got married only four months after Ryan Reynolds presented Scarlett Johansson with a 3 carat, Round cut diamond and yellow gold engagement ring.

Reynolds and Johansson have always been adamant about protecting their privacy; the young couple rarely poses for pictures together on the red carpet and share details about their personal lives even less. Their wedding was no exception.

The two exchanged wedding rings on September 27th of 2008 at an eco-friendly resort just outside of Vancouver, B.C. and away from the prying eyes of the public.

To ensure privacy, the phone lines were shut down for the weekend and the few friends and family members in attendance were flown in from downtown Vancouver, in a float plane, to the Clayoquot Retreat on the Bedwell River. Reynolds and Johansson rented out the entire resort, which provided the small group of guest with various outdoor activities like horseback riding and hiking for entertainment.

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian – September 27, 2009
The Kardashians, the lovable reality TV family that is famous for being famous has never had a problem with publicity; no moment is too private to air on TV. And Khloe’s wedding was no exception.
It’s hard not to name drop when talking about this wedding.

The couple exchanged vows in front of an audience of friends and family at the private residence of music mogul Irving Azoff in Beverly Hills. Vera Wang, a friend of the family, designed the gown that Khloe wore as she walked down the aisle on the arm of her stepfather, Bruce Jenner.

Some of the more notable names on the 250 person guest list included Odom’s team mate Kobe Bryant, Kelly Osbourne, and Ryan Seacrest whom also produces the family show.

Musician Babyface performed at the reception and the couple flew in a DJ from New York City to keep the party moving.

Since the couple had only been dating for a month before they decided to tie the knot, Kardashian did not receive her engagement ring until just weeks before the wedding. But it seemed it was worth the wait when Odom presented her with a 9 carat, Radiant cut diamond engagement ring.

There was no need for a videographer though, as the whole courtship, from the proposal to the rush down the aisle, was caught on tape for the reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashian.”

It just goes to show that sometimes things are too good to wait. Happy anniversary to both of the lucky couples.
