Scarlett Johansson & Colin Jost ‘only planned their wedding for a few weeks’


Last week, we learned that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost got married. They got engaged in May 2019 and they seemed pretty stable (for a ScarJo relationship) so the wedding wasn’t a big surprise. Even the whole “pandemic wedding” thing isn’t shocking anymore – if I was engaged, I would probably just wait until next year or 2022, but the pandemic has forced a lot of couples to simplify and edit down their expectations, which isn’t a bad thing at all. I’m all for it if people want to have simple 10-person weddings in the Hamptons. Go wild, with masks! And that’s what it sounds like with ScarJo and Colin – they spent a couple of weeks planning a super-simple wedding and just got it over with.

When it came to planning her wedding, Scarlett Johansson wasted no time. The two-time Oscar-nominated actress, 35, recently married Saturday Night Live star and head writer, Colin Jost, 38 in an intimate ceremony at Johansson’s home in Palisades, N.Y.

“They only planned the wedding for a few weeks,” says a source. “Just close friends and family attended.”

For their big day, the couple also wanted to involve a charity and announced their wedding on the Instagram account for Meals on Wheels, a hunger-fighting organization they’ve long supported.

“They wanted a quiet, private ceremony with their close friends and family, and they pulled it off,” says another insider.

I think it’s also worth noting that this was Scarlett’s third marriage, and most “wedding experts” in the wedding industrial complex do say that after your second marriage, you probably shouldn’t be doing these huge, showy weddings anymore. But it doesn’t matter, ultimately, because people are gonna do what they want. I actually saw a story last week and I wasn’t sure I believed it, but I bet it’s true – Scarlett and Colin sent out “save the date” invitations on hand-written index cards. Part of me thinks it’s just nice that they were so lowkey, and part of me thinks they’re cosplaying being “poor.” Fingers crossed for a wedding reception menu of hot dogs and Cheez-Its.

    I just want to know if Che was there.
    He promised to make a scene. (hahahah)

    But i am glad they didn’t have 100 people and just pretend the pandemic didn’t matter.
    Good for them.

    It just occurred to me that we’ve never seen a single photo of any of her wedding dresses.

    I think it’s nice. It just shows when ppl really want to get married, the pandemic is not an obstacle, because ultimately weddings should not be about showing off but committing to one another in front of those you really care about. Everything else is a noise. …makes me even want to believe this will last longer that her other marriages.

    Easy to plan quickly when you’re a bazillionaire

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. If you are not worried about budget then organizing a wedding, especially for like 10 people, is nothing.

    I know how everyone here feels about these two, but I really like this pairing. I think it will be “third time’s the charm” for her.

    Her comments about Woody Allen are problematic AF though, which bums me out because she really does have talent. She brought so much to her role in Jojo Rabbit.
