12 Iconic Hollywood Weddings, Elizabeth Taylor’s Dress Will Make You GUSH.
There is something incredibly romantic about Old Hollywood wedding photographs. In them, I find the stuff of dreams. I would argue that this is true for any photos taken at the time. They are marked by a natural softness unseen in today's overdone, magazine ready images.
The photos below include international icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe, all of which have been married at least twice. Taylor was married eight times to seven different men; shown here are her first and fifth marriages.
You will also find Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra, and Elvis Presley on this list.
Each wedding reflects the different styles of stars who have made their marks in film, music, and sports, among others. Whether you have been a longtime fan or are unfamiliar with these legends from the 1950s and '60s, I encourage you to watch their films, listen to their music, and read their stories.
