Our 10 Favorite Movie Weddings of All Time | Southern New England Weddings | L'Arnacoeur (The Heartbreaker)

True, some of the guys and gals in these films didn’t wind up marrying the person they were ‘supposed to’ at the start of the movie, but that doesn’t keep us from pausing the movies on our laptops to take screen shots of wedding scene details we find inspiring… (no, are we the only ones?) Here are our 10 favorite movie wedding scenes of all time.

10. Pride and Prejudice

A double date at the altar with two besties and two sister besties? Sounds like fun to us! However, those pants, guys. Really?

9. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

We don’t have any opinion whatsoever on the team Edward v. Jacob debate, but we’ll take that exploding floral altar, please.

8. The Princess Bride

Because Mawidge.

7. Mamma Mia

Meryl Streep is living proof that love is beautiful at any age. Also, Sophie’s epic journey to a chapel on top of a rocky outcropping on the Greek island of Skopelos is enough to make us investigate donkey rentals in the US.

6. Moonrise Kingdom

We’ve always been fond of the “kids misbehaving at summer camp” theme (Camp Nowhere, anyone?), plus Wes Anderson is a genius, plus most of this was filmed in Jamestown and Newport, RI.

5. Love Actually

No, we’re not over the surprise wedding guest orchestral serenade.

4. The Graduate

Because their getaway vehicle was the Santa Barbara MTD. Economical and environmentally friendly!

3. L’Arnacoeur (The Heartbreaker)

The wedding scene features Vanessa Paradis (Chanel muse, musician and former Mrs. Johnny Depp) running along the coast of Monaco towards her beloved in a couture gown. Also, Romain Duris is hysterical as a professional breakup tactician.

2. Forrest Gump

Maybe it’s unfair that Robin Wright gets two movies on our list, but come on! Two best friends, a backyard wedding beneath a tree, and a crown of flowers…it’s the quintessential all-American girl-next-door romance!

1. Love Story

ATF. Star crossed Ivy Leaguers wed on the Harvard campus with a charming “we’re broke college students madly in love” innocence, which gives us just enough time to smile and feel warm and fuzzy inside before tragedy strikes and we cry for hours. It gets us every time.
