Let’s take a break from all the tragic news and talk about something fun- LGBTQ stars who have married in 2020 so far!
The first four months of the year brought us an equal number of newly wed gay couples to ooh and ahh over.
While many couples are forced to postpone their wedding thanks to coronavirus, we can still look to the stars for inspiration for the future.
Let’s take a look!
LGBTQ Stars Who Have Married in 2020 (So Far)
Ready to take a look at some of the cutest same-sex couples who got married in 2020.
This year came with an avalanche of events, and despite all that, it’s nice to see people still loving with all their hearts.
Take a look at four gay couples who said “I do” during the first quarter of the year.
While they’re not all “superstars” in Hollywood, their nuptials made history (even if one didn’t quite work out).
In fact, for two couples, their big day actually turned them into celebrities!
We’ll also look at a couple of celebrity gay couples who announced their engagements this year.
1. Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger
They are definitely one of the most popular couples in sports.
We’re talking about U.S. Women’s National Team goal keeper Ashlyn, and defender, Ali.
They met at USWNT in 2010, where they instantly fell in love. Although they had to keep their relationship a secret for a while, their fans always knew something was happening.
Ashlyn proposed to Ali in Clearwater, Florida, as they were on a vacation.
We had a glass of champagne and then wanted to take photos to capture the moment. I proceeded to take a selfie and Ashlyn’s arm was in the back of the photo. I asked her to put it down and stop being silly, only to realize she had actually been holding the engagement ring the entire time I had been snapping photos. She pulled it around in front of me, and then asked the big question! I was in shock but so happy and excited at the same time. It was an incredible sunset, and just a perfect moment.
They got married 10 years later, in a weekend-long ceremony, where they got reunited with all their USWNT friends and colleagues.
2. Tash Herz and Amanda Micallef
These two gals were the first gay couple of ‘Married At First Sight.’
Although they had a very nice go in the show, they eventually decided to break their relationship and leave the show.
Their marriage ended, each going on a different path, but the fact that they made history, still stands.
3. Robyn Peoples and Sharni Edwards
Robyn and Sharni were the first couple to get married after Northern Ireland legalized same-sex marriages.
Their wedding happened in February, at the Loughshore Hotel in Carrickfergus.
The couple waited five long years before they were able to get legally married. They got engaged in 2015 in Paris, while they were attending an Ariana Grande concert.
We didn’t expect to be the first couple, it’s coincidental. We would have gone ahead with a civil partnership, but when the deal was passed, it was perfect timing and a happy coincidence.
Happily, they got married on their 5-year anniversary!
4. Amanda and Reilly
Amanda and Reilly were one of the bravest couples out there.
Right after the Coronavirus pandemic was official, they decided to have their wedding in the middle of the street.
They made everything possible in no time, and with help from their beloved friend who decided to help them and officiated the marriage.
They got married under his window, while their guests watched from a car, practicing the social distancing guidelines.
Amidst the uncertainty and despair we all feel right now, marrying the love of my life in the most NYC moment was perfect.
Celebrity Gay Couples Who Announced Engagements in 2020
Maria Bello and Dominique Crenn
Mario Bello announced her engagement to chef Dominique Crenn. Sadly, they’re “engaged in solitude,” as Bello explains. They’re self-isolating in different cities until the COVID crisis passes.
Molly Bernard and Hannah Lieberman
Bernard, star of the TV Land show Younger announced her engagement to Hannah Lieberman.
While the list is pretty short for now, several stars also announced their engagements this year as well.
Right now, we can only hope and see more of stories of LGBTQ stars getting married in 2020.
Sadly, we are going to have to wait a little for the COVID-19 threat to pass!
