Photos: Top celebrity weddings in Colorado -- and how many couples are still together
Sometimes it seems like marriages involving stars last about as long as the average fruit fly. But we've got what looks like a way to help pairings of the famous beat the odds: They should get married in Colorado.
Our evidence? HistoryOrb.com lists nine celebrity weddings to have taken place in Colorado over recent years, and as far as we can tell (these things can change quickly), eight of the couples are still together! Check out photos and info about all nine, including the one loser in the bunch.
Lauren Bush and David Lauren
The wedding between fashion model and designer Bush and David Lauren, the son of none other than Ralph Lauren, took place on a 17,000 acre farm here in Colorado on September 4, 2011. And they're still together a year and a half later! Congrats! Tim Allen and Jane Hajduk
Jane Hajduk and Tim Allen.
Comedian Allen's first marriage, to Laura Deibel, ended in divorce circa 2003, after nineteen years. But his second ceremony, to actress Jane Hajduk, with whom he exchanged vows at Grand Lake on October 7, 2006, appears to have stuck. Campbell Brown and Dan Senor
Broadcaster Brown, known for her stints on NBC and CNN, has a divorce in her past, to Peregrine "Pere" Roberts. But she's still with Fox News contributor Senor, who she wed on April 2, 2006 in Beaver Creek. Continue for more of our top celebrity weddings in Colorado -- and how many couples are still together. Jonny Moseley and Malia Rich
Moseley, the owner of his very own Olympic gold medal for freestyle skiing, slipped a ring on Rich's finger on March 25, 2006, in Telluride -- and as far as we know, it's still there. Paula Cale and Michael Lisbe
Whether Cale still qualifies as famous is debatable. She was a regular on the TV series Providence back in the first part of last decade, but appears to have been off-the-radar in recent years. According to her Wikipedia page, "Cale currently resides in Los Angeles, where she performs volunteer work for her church and also enjoys pottering in her flower garden, and watching sports. She has stated an interest in returning to teaching elementary school sometime in the future." But her wedding to screenwriter Lisbe at Sopris Mountain Ranch in Basalt on July 29, 2006 looks to be an unalloyed success. Dr. Charlotte Brown and Dr. Travis Stork
Dr. Charlotte Brown and Dr. Travis Stork.
The star of The Bachelor's eighth season, and current host of The Doctors, Stork is a Fort Collins native. So it's only natural that he would have tied the knot with his beloved, pediatrician Dr. Charlotte Brown, in our fair state way back on June 30 of last year. Keepin' the love alive!

The erstwhile desperate housewife and the star of Showtime's hilarious Shameless aren't newcomers at this marriage thang. They said "I do," or something like it, on September 6, 1997 in Woody Creek -- meaning they're coming up on their sixteenth anniversary. Must be that Colorado magic. Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner
Oscar-winner Costner had one marriage under his belt (to Cindy Silva) when he took the plunge with Baumgartner, a model and handbag designer, on September 25, 2004 at his 165-acre ranch in Aspen. They've been together for eight years-plus. Way to go! Kate Hudson and Chris Robinson
All good things must come to an end. Hudson and Robinson, of Black Crowes fame, got married on December 31, 2000 in Aspen -- and by 2007, they were splitsville. Way to ruin the streak, guys....
