This week's celebrity anniversaries:

Sept. 29, 2012. Actress Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman, Big Sur, California. Like the wedding's backdrop, the natural, scenic Big Sur on the California coast, Hathaway's look seemed otherwise understated. "The Dark Knight Rises" star kept her cropped pixie cut from "Les Miserables" for the big day, forgoing any hair extensions. She wore no jewelry, says the source. To accessorize, she donned a 1920s-inspired headband attached to a simple veil. She wore a custom Valentino gown, as was expected given her close relationship with the designer.

Sept. 29, 2012. Actor Stanley Tucci and Felicity Blunt, London. Felicity's actress sister Emily Blunt, who starred in "The Devil Wears Prada" with Stanley, introduced the couple, who held a stunning ceremony at the Middle Temple Hall.
