Miley Cyrus hopped off a plane in central Tennessee with a dream and an ivory dress, which can (maybe) only mean one thing: She got married?! And Liam Hemsworth is the groom! According to Instagram Story screenshots snapped by People, a party that resembled a wedding reception took place at Cyrus’s Tennessee home on Sunday evening. Also in attendance was Cyrus’s mother, Tish; her father, “Achy Breaky Heart” Billy; the Hemsworth bros, Chris and Luke; and her two sisters, Brandi and Noah. You can decipher by looking at the photos if this was all just a casual holiday shindig for the two families, but allow Sherlock Vulture will weigh in with three necessary clues: (1) Cyrus is wearing a lovely white dress, (2) Hemsworth is the only one in a tuxedo, and (3) there are many “Mr. and Mrs.” balloons floating around. No foam fingers, though. This isn’t 2013.
Update, December 26, at 4:10 p.m.: Well, these Instagram photos look pretty damn official, huh! Stopping short at flat-out saying, “We got married this week,” Cyrus posted three photos of her and Hemsworth in their formal outfits, smooching and generally acting cute. “Ten years later,” she wrote.
Update, December 27, at 10:05 a.m.: Cyrus went on a cute tweeting spree, which included thanking Mark Ronson and Nicholas Sparks for their wedding well-wishes. (Cyrus and Hemsworth met while starring in the 2010 film adaptation of Sparks’s The Last Song.) Also, we have an “Uptown Funk” dancing video! The king of all wedding songs, truly.
Update, December 27 at 6:34 p.m.: Billy Ray Cyrus is the first of the extended Cyrus-Hemsworth fam to croak on social media that it was indeed a wedding, using the term in an Instagram caption of the reception. “Wedding wouldn’t be complete without one shot from Dads out-dated blackberry camera,” he wrote for one photo. “Love seeing all so happy.” He added, in another photo: “Long live love !!!!!” Dad!!!!!
