We couldn't help but wonder: is Britney married, finally?

The "Toxic" singer and Sam Asghari revealed their engagement in September 2021, and news hit that the pair were set to wed in Los Angeles on the sunny afternoon of June 9. According to TMZ (opens in new tab), the couple hosted an intimate affair with roughly 100 people.

Here's all of the scoop about the pop star's long-awaited nuptials.

Is Britney married? Inside the star's intimate wedding:

Now that the Britney Spears conservatorship news is behind us and the pop icon won her case, she's decided to fast forward to the life she's been dreaming of. Under her conservatorship, she alleged that she was unable to get married and have a baby. Now, the pop icon is in the driver's seat at long last. 

"I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves," Asghari told People (opens in new tab) earlier this year. "I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together."

Were the ones who held her back be at the ceremony? TMZ reported that Spears' brother Bryan would be in attendance, but her parents and sister were not been invited. ("What did Jamie Lynn do to Britney?" you ask? We have the receipts about the sisters' back and forth.) 

The superstar's two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, who she shares with ex Kevin Federline also did not attend the ceremony. "Kevin and the boys are really happy for Britney, and they wish Britney and Sam the best for their future moving forward," Federline’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan said in a statement, per ET (opens in new tab). "The boys felt that it would be overwhelming for them, and it would be best for Britney to focus on this great day and based on that they felt it would be best for them not to be in attendance."

In attendance, however, were plenty of celebrity guests, including Donatella Versace, Paris Hilton and mom Kathy Hilton, Drew Barrymore and Maria Menounos.

Britney Spears wedding dress

Spears donned a Versace gown for her big day, according to E! News. Considering Donatella dropped by the singer's home back in March—when Spears confirmed that the designer and her fiancé were "up to no good"—we're not too surprised. A source told E! that the dress featured an off-the-shoulder cap sleeve and a deep slit in the leg. 

Charlotte Tillbury makeup and Stephanie Gottlieb jewelry completed Brit's bridal look, the outlet reported.

What happened with Britney's ex, Jason Alexander?

The white wedding didn't go entirely smoothly, thanks to Spears' ex-husband Jason Alexander, whom she married in Las Vegas in January 2004. The quick-to-wed couple broke up 55 hours later and the marriage was annulled. 

In an Instagram Live, Alexander could be seen attempting to crash the wedding venue without an invitation. "Britney Spears invited me here. She's my first wife, my only wife. I'm her first husband. I'm here to crash the wedding," Alexander could be heard telling an employee of the venue. "I'm here to crash the wedding because nobody is here except Sam. Where the f*ck is the family?"

Police were called and Alexander was arrested for an altercation with a member of Spears' security team.
