“People ask that too, like, ‘How’s the guy?’ And I’ll tell you, the guy is great. His name is Will and he’s a great guy,” he explained. “And if he wasn’t, he’d be dead right now.

“That’s how we operate in my family,” he joked.

Al and Isabel Roker would have been so proud of their granddaughter.”

Naturally, the tented event was catered by Ree’s restaurant, the Mercantile, in their hometown of Pawhuska, Neb.

Bindi Irwin knows her late father Steve was there in spirit on her special day.

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die,” she captioned a photo with her husband Chandler Powell, mom Terry and brother Robert, smiling and holding a painting inspired by her April 2020 wedding day.

The actor walked his daughter Hailey down the aisle at her September 2019 wedding to Justin Bieber.

Speaking with TMZ before the big day, Stephen shared why it was important for the couple to have a religious wedding following their 2018 courthouse ceremony. 

“I just think that as Christians and as believers they understand that if you don’t have the God’s spirit working in your marriage it just makes it more and more difficult to make it work and have peace and find happiness,” he said.

“Weddings and marriage are supposed to be a holy commitment, one onto another,” the father of the bride added.

The “Midnight Sky” singer took a page from her parents’ book when she wed Liam Hemsworth in December 2018, saying “I do” in the living room of her home in Franklin, Tennessee, just like Tish and Billy Ray had done 25 years prior. The couple also honored the parents of the bride by tying the knot five days before the Cyrus’ anniversary.

After less than a year of marriage, Miley and Hemsworth called it quits, in a divorce finalized a little more than a year later.

The Thelma & Louise star was thrilled to be the mother of the bride when her daughter Eva Amurri got married in October 2011 – and even happier to stay out of planning!

“My daughter should do this professionally, she is so on it. Eva really has very clear ideas of what she wants,” Sarandon told PEOPLE a decade ago. “I’ve just weighed in on a couple of things.”

“But I have very little responsibility, so I’m having a great time!” she teased.  

Amuri and her husband Kyle Martino would go on to welcome three children together, and divorced in February 2020.
