What better way to ring in the new year than to count down the best weddings from 2007?

The following 12 weddings are weddings that have touched me, made me go gooey inside, wowed me and shocked me!

This casual wild west style wedding  had celebrity guests sitting on hay bales and bouquets wrapped in pretty gingham as Ugly Betty star Rebecca Romijin wed Jerry O’Connell in a surprise ceremony.

11. Ricki-Lee & Jamie


Australian Idol contestant and Young Diva singer Ricki-Lee wed her beau Jamie in a gorgeous down to earth ceremony on the Gold Coast. Over 200 guests joined the couple as they laughed their way through their wedding vows. The cake was decorated with soft pink flowers and Ricki-Lee said “There’s nobody that fits me better than Jamie, we’re two pieces of a puzzle that nobody else can fit.”

10. Gary & Melissa


Gary Fong has a reputation as one of the best photographers around. He wed his sweet Melissa in their gorgeous newly built ranch in Canada. Jessica Claire shot it, but Gary being who he is was surrounded by many photographers! The love at this wedding was so obvious and the setting, setup, shots- everything! Completely wowed me!
