As we set our sights on another year ahead, we also take a peek at what 2015 has left behind in the world of weddings. There have been grand ceremonies and secret rendezvous, and whether the vows were short and sweet or full of sentimental sayings each event offered a glimpse into celebrity life the public doesn’t often get to see.
Whether we were drawn to search for these celebrities and their weddings out of love or drama, this year has certainly offered a wide array of ceremonies fit for all tastes. From Sofia Vergara to the Duggars, here’s a look at the unique collection of weddings that make up Google’s Top Trending Celebrity Weddings of 2015!
1. Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello
The number one wedding of 2015 according to Google belongs to none other than Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and Magic Mike XXL hunk Joe Manganiello. The two tied the knot in a very public ceremony in Florida on November 22 at The Breakers Palm Beach resort.

Wed to James Rothschild on July 10, heiress Nicky Hilton looked beautifully modest in her haute couture Valentino wedding dress. The lovely white lace gown offered a collar and sheer long sleeves while her sister Paris and the rest of her bridesmaid crew donned demure periwinkle blue dresses. The luxurious wedding was held in the Orangery of the Kensington Gardens at Kensington Palace in London, and though some relatives, like Paris and Nicky’s younger brother Conrad, couldn’t attend, the designer and socialite’s wedding was still an incredible affair.
5. Tina Knowles and Richard Lawson
