We're deep into the start of the 2009 wedding season and it's nice to see celebrities joining in the fun.

Actress Salma Hayek married her husband, François-Henri Pinault, for the second time on April 25th, amidst A-list movie/music/fashion stars (including Charlize Theron, Penelope Cruz, Bono, Stella McCartney and former French president Jacques Chirac) in Venice. The $3.5 million dollar wedding took place at the Teatro La Fenice opera house, where Salma dazzled everyone in a Balenciaga wedding gown by Nicholas Ghesquiere. What I liked best about this affair was the strict dress code: Black tie plus Venetian masks! 
Here are a few snapshots, thanks to the paparazzi (who happened to be ever-present, in boats, during the the last picture depicts below).

Reality show stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt of "The Hills" just recently married in Pasadena, California too.  Some continue to question the validity of this marriage, but one thing no one can deny is the bride's ensemble, including a Monique Lhullier wedding gown and $1.2 million worth of diamonds, was AMAZING!  She was traditional and trendy at the same time, which I loved.  Overall, Heidi and Spencer made an exquisitely handsome bride and groom.

Last but not least, the moment thousands of Grey's Anatomy fans have been waiting for is almost here... the wedding of Meredith Grey and Derek Shepard.  Grey's Anatomy's 100th episode, "What a Difference a Day Makes," featuring these two characters finally tying-the-knot airs Thursday, May 7th at 9 pm on ABC.  And like any savvy and modern couple, there's a wedding website on to help keep all the details in line.
