Hollywood Weddings

Let me take a moment to clarify what I mean by Hollwood weddings; old Hollywood marriages and not the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphrey's faux Hollywood. Now that we are on the same page, here are  photos from some of my favorite actors and actresses weddings. I love the dresses, especially Ava and Audrey (how I love Audrey ... she was a knitter also, thus making me love her just a little bit more).

Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio - January 14, 1954

Joanne Woodward & Paul Newman - January 29, 1958

Lauren Bacall & Humphrey Bogart - May 21, 1945

Grace Kelly & Prince Rainier of Monaco - April 19, 1956

Ava Gardner & Frank Sinatra - 1951


Audrey Hepburn & Mel Ferrer - September 24, 1954

And now...Elizabeth Taylor & ...

Conrad Hilton - May 6, 1950

& Michael Wilding - February 21, 1952

& Michael Todd - February 3, 1957

& Eddie Fisher - May 12, 1959

& Richard Burton (1st time) - 1964

& Richard Burton (again) - October 1975

& John Warner - Dec. 1976 (note, this photo is not from their wedding)

& finally...Larry Fortensky - October 1991

I think my favorite dress is the gorgeous green dress at her second marriage to Richard Burton? Do you have a favorite? Let me know!

oldies looks more romantic than todays wedding, it is something sacred and special compared to now that has been very social and trendy.

Liz looks beautiful in all the photos, but for some reason my favorite is when shes wearing brown.
