Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and actor Portia de Rossi have been an item since 2004, and they married in 2008. Now, in honor of their milestone 10th anniversary, a video of the powerhouse couple’s wedding day has been shared on the YouTube page for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
The sweet video is a beautiful testament to their love and devotion for each other. Watch it below, though consider yourself warned — you might need some tissues.
Wow! You can really tell just how in love these two are when they see each other for the first time on their big day. The video goes on to showcase a number of still shots and video clips from the couple’s intimate wedding, and the joy in their expressions shows how happy they were.
It looks like it was a truly amazing celebration!
Back in 2005, de Rossi explained how her love for DeGeneres helped her overcome her anxiety about coming out as gay.
“My feelings for her overrode all of my fear about being out as a lesbian,” she told The Advocate. “I had to be with her, and I just figured I’d deal with the other stuff later. I respect her so much. She was so courageous and so loud in ’97, and now she is doing something that is more subliminal. She’s changing the world, she really is, and it’s exciting to be a part of that.”
DeGeneres has been just as vocal about her passion for de Rossi, saying that same year that she knew they’d be together for the long haul.
“It’s the first time that I’ve known in every cell of my being that I’m with somebody for the rest of my life,” DeGeneres told People at the time.
Happy 10th anniversary to these two, and here’s to many more!
