Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi will marry this weekend and we will have those wedding pictures for you here asap. Read more about the wedding details and see photos and video of the couple here.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have been dating since 2004, and according to US Weekly, the couple will finally marry this weekend. The wedding will take place in California on Saturday and will be a small, intimate ceremony. The couple is said to be ecstatic about their upcoming nuptials. Ellen spoke about Portia in a interview with Advocate. She said:
“I feel like I found my perfect fit. She’s taught me lessons about myself, and I feel like I’ve taught her.”
Ellen & Portia began planning the wedding soon after California Supreme Court’s ruling that same sex couple’s have the “right to marry”. For many, Ellen and Portia’s wedding is a huge event, as it is being dubbed by some the “lesbian wedding of the century”.
As for who will officiate the couples wedding, Star magazine is reporting that Ellen wants close pal and television icon Oprah to be the minister. No word on if Oprah will actually do it, but she has been invited to the wedding.
More details as they come. And as soon as the wedding pictures are out, we will have them up.
More photos of Portia and Ellen, including shots of the engagement ring, and video after the jump.
UPDATE: They did it! Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres married yesterday and you can check out their wedding pictures here! The two married in an intimate ceremony on the grounds of their LA home. Their guest list was fewer than 20 of the couple’s family and friends, who drew together at sunset for the civil service ceremony. As you can see from the wedding photos, they seem to have had a wonderfully special day.
DeGeneres wore a loose-fitting white chiffon shirt, and matching pants and jacket, while de Rossi wore a cream and pale pink backless halter dress, which was designed by Zac Posen.
Congrats to the happy couple!!!
