It seems to be quite the summer in the entertainment world...
Despite the news of certain relationships not getting the cliched ending, there are still some celebrity romances and relationships that are continuing to heat up and stay strong. From an engagement of one of our best friends, to the engagement of another person we wish was our best friend, and the secret wedding of the last member of our wolf-pack, these last few weeks have been busy in Hollywood social circles.

After years of anticipation since her very public break-up, Jennifer Aniston is once again off the market. Best known as Rachel from Friends, the 43-year old actress was out to dinner with her boyfriend, Justin Theroux, to celebrate his 41st birthday on August 10th. Dining at the Blue Hill restaurant in New York City, the couple looked very much in love, sipping on white wine and chatting quietly in the corner of the restaurant. Although the couple has run in similar circles for years, they began dating just over a year ago when they met up again on the set of Wanderlust.
Theroux popped the question during their dinner, and according to his rep (who released a statement to People), he "had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend [Aniston] accepted his proposal of marriage". Although the ring has yet to be seen, Life & Style is reporting that it is "a huge emerald-cut diamond...a rectangle with tapered diamonds baguettes on the sides".

Last, but certainly not least, Zach Galifianakis has no hangover in sight, but is currently drunk - love drunk that is. The 42-year old funny man and his 29-year old fiancée, Quinn Lundberg, tied the knot on Saturday August 11th, in a short and private ceremony at the University of British Columbia's Farm. The ceremony started at 4 p.m., and lasted approximately 30 minutes. This was preceded by a rehearsal dinner that was held at Vancouver's Stanley Park the night before.
Lundberg is originally from Edmonton, and is a former ballerina, but is currently the co-founder of the charity Growing Voices. The couple has been quietly dating from as late as 2010. The engagement was learnt of in June of this year when wedding invitations for the couple were shared with the press. The invitations themselves showed a hand-drawn sketch by Galifianakis of him as a troll, and his fiancée as a beautiful blonde princess.
Congratulations from Bridal Fantasy to all the happy couples, wishing you the absolute best!
