Billy Joel's annual Fourth of July party took an unexpected turn when longtime girlfriend Alexis Roderick stepped out in a wedding gown. The pair married at his Long Island home during the holiday party. Andrew Cuomo, New York's governor, officiated the ceremony.

Roderick is 33, Joel is 66, and she is expecting. This is Joel's fourth marriage. The couple began dating in 2009.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher also reportedly married this weekend in Oak Glen, California—satisfying the dreams of every That '70s Show fan. The pair have a daughter, Wyatt, together.

To round out the celebrity wedding weekend, Vanessa Williams married Jim Skrip on the Fourth as well. Williams is an actress and singer, famous for her role on Ugly Betty. She had publicly announced her engagement, so the wedding was not entirely a surprise. The date of the wedding itself, however, was previously unknown, though two days before tying the knot, she tweeted about taking a road trip.
