Love. It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it? As we get older, it seems that the concept of “love” takes on a whole new meaning. Sometimes it’s something you feel for another person; perhaps it’s a platonic love for your best friend or sibling. But most times it involves a romantic feeling that can only be described as “sweeping (or passionate)”.

Just ask Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The Twilight stars have been married since September 2015 and were first romantically linked in 2012. Since then, they’ve been all over the place—from having adventures in Amsterdam to moving in together and tying the knot in New York City. It was bound to happen, right? After all, these are two of the world’s most famous, if sometimes polarizing, celebrities. Whatever you might think of their films or their personal lives, there’s no denying that they’re a power couple.

Married Life Gets Interesting

It’s fair to say that their relationship has been anything but typical. In fact, it’s been so unexpected that sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the changes. Even their wedding day was a complete 180 from what they had planned. Want to know more? Keep reading.

The Proposal And Early Days

After almost four years of dating and spending as much time together as they could, Robert finally popped the question in September 2015. He asked Kristen to marry him in front of a crowd of adoring fans at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. It was by far the most unforgettable proposal ever. If you haven’t already watched the breathtaking video, you can check it out here. And yes, the answer was yes. The fans went wild and the audience gave the proposal an incredible “awww” factor. After the ceremony, the newlywed couple made their way down the street for a kiss before taking their first proper family photo. It was one moment that the bride and groom will never forget. It was also one of the most photographed weddings of all time.

The celebration continued when they took their first wedding flight to Italy. The newlyweds arrived in Venice just in time for Halloween and were overwhelmed by all the culture and history—not to mention the delicious Venetian food. They were also joined by many of their famous celebrity friends, who joined in the fun with the hashtag #TeamVenice on social media. It was a memorable, yet happy, moment for the couple, whose engagement and wedding were covered by every major celebrity news publication. And just like that, their married life began. A fairy tale from the beginning.

An Unforgettable Night

What a night that was! The wedding of the decade just might be a fitting description of the celebration that was held at the City Winery in New York City on October 12, 2015. The extravagant affair featured an incredible array of luxury dresses, breathtaking venues, and breathtaking views. If you haven’t watched the video yet, you can do so here. The wedding film was followed by an incredible reception that featured another kiss (this time with music playing in the background), delicious wedding cake, and—of course—several toasts from famous friends. It was quite the scene!

A Beautiful Day In Amsterdam

A year later, the couple was back in Amsterdam for a romantic vacation. They stayed at the Hilton and took day trips to see the city’s famous landmarks and enjoy some retail therapy. What a memorable trip that was! The city is most famous for its canals and its red-light district, but that’s not all there is to see. The newlyweds shopped at Nordstrom, dined at The Palace, and visited the Anne Frank house. It was a day that Robert and Kristen will never forget. It was also a day that made international headlines. When rumors surfaced that the couple was going to Amsterdam for an engagement ring, fans of both the actor and the writer went bonkers with excitement. It was one day that the city—and the country—wanted to celebrate. The newlyweds made the most of their time in Amsterdam with multiple kisses and double celebrations. They were also joined by some of their famous friends for a fun-filled day. And just like that, their romantic and personal journeys continued.

There have been a lot of changes in the couple’s lives since they got married. For starters, they no longer live together. In summer 2016, they moved into a six-bedroom, eight-bathroom mansion in Los Angeles. It’s not every day that you hear about celebrity couples moving into fancy houses, but it’s become commonplace for the Pattinson-Stewart clan. They also have two children, a daughter India and a son Louis. Their lives must be pretty sweet now that they’re a family of five.

It seems like only yesterday that the Twi-hards were divided over whether or not Robert and Kristen would end up together. The suspense is killing me! At least now we know. The end is (hopefully) in sight. While there are still occasional reports of on-set spats and dramatic arguments, it seems that the couple is committed to making their marriage work. They’ve been through a lot together and seem to have learned a lot from their past mistakes. They’ve also become more mature as individuals and as a partnership. The world is waiting for their latest venture together—whatever that might be—to begin.
