On February 18, 2012, Elizabeth Smart married Matthew Gilmour in the Laie Hawaii Temple. Gilmour, who is from Scotland, told People, "I've known for a long time I was in love with her."

Following her abduction, Smart visited Oahu with her family in 2003. "Oahu is a very special place for me," Smart told People. "Very different than what I was used to." 

Describing her love for Gilmour, Smart said, "It's like he's always been there. I knew it was meant to be." She continued, "I couldn't be happier. It has been the greatest day I could ever have imagined."

Neon Trees' drummer, Elaine Bradley married Sebastian Bradley in the Mt. Timpanogos Utah Temple in January 2010. They now have a baby boy named Bryce.

Elaine told Deseret News, "It's an interesting thing to be a mom, a Mormon mom, and to be on the road. But what's really wonderful about my situation is that my husband and I are on the exact same page."

Prior to her temple wedding, she lost her faith for a time, until a non-Mormon helped her to reconnect with the gospel. Read more about it here.

First married in 1982, Marie Osmond married former basketball player Steve Craig in the Salt Lake Temple. After a painful divorce in 1985, they married again in 2011—this time in the Las Vegas Nevada Temple.

"As far as Steve is concerned, I have never found anyone I respect more, who I love more," she told ABC News before her remarriage. And although she was surprised to fall back in love with her ex-husband, she told Daily Mail, "You don't plan those things. But we celebrate it all the time."

On March 21, 1969, Mitt Romney married his wife, Ann, in her hometown of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. As high school sweethearts, Mitt and Ann had known each other since they were children. They fell in love in high school (which you can read about here), and Ann waited for Mitt to return home from his mission in France. 

After their wedding ceremony in Michigan, which was attended by family and friends, Mitt and Ann flew to Salt Lake City to be sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on March 22, 1969.
