Boy meets girl. Another boy meets another girl. They eventually switch partners. And that was just one of the topsy-turvy stories from the year in celebrity weddings, which kicked off with Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud's New Year's Day celebration of love.
It was, of course, a love that blossomed after their spouses cheated on them with each other.
But the happiness didn't stop there.
Kelsey Grammer found love again, and he only had to be single for two weeks. That was the amount of time between the finalization of his divorce from Camille Grammer and his walk down the aisle with young bride Kayte Walsh.
Other lovestruck celebrity couples were married in a castle (Kate Moss and Jamie Hince) and in secret (Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz), on a ranch (Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth), on a private island (Vanessa Manillo and Nick Lachey) and on a yacht (Brooke Burke and David Charvet).
Controversy may have danced around the edges here and there, but faces were wreathed in smiles, even if those smiles were short-lived (Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries).
But let's toast the celebrity weddings of 2011. Our wish for happy couples: That we don't see your faces next year in the celebrity breakups of 2012.
