Britney Spears and Sam Asghari’s wedding turned out to be the “fairytale” they envisioned, despite Britney’s ex-husband Jason Alexander crashing the wedding. A source told PEOPLE that the bride was overjoyed to finally say “I do,” adding that she walked herself down the aisle, as she didn’t invite any family members .
“It ended up being the happiest night for Britney,” the source told the publication. “She wanted a fairytale wedding and she got it. Britney looked stunning. She is very excited to be married. She looks forward to a future with Sam.”
“As soon as she walked down the aisle and saw Sam, she had the biggest smile. She cried several times during the ceremony, but it was all happy tears,” they said, adding, “Britney danced for hours at the reception. You could tell that she had the best time.”
Multiple sources confirmed that the couple tied the knot Thursday night before an intimate star-studded guest list of about 60 people, including Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez and Madonna (who shared a smooch with the bride).

According to sources, Spears wore a gown by Versace, with Donatella Versace at the ceremony, and walked down the aisle to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Asghari’s manager, Brandon Cohen, told PEOPLE after the ceremony, “I am very ecstatic this day has come, and they are married. I know he wanted this for so long. He is so caring and supportive every step of the way.”
Spears, 40, and the actor and fitness trainer, 28, were first romantically linked after they met on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video in 2016 and the rest is history.
However, what was meant to be a fairytale was disrupted by Britney’s ex, who she was married to for a very brief 55 hours back in 2004; he stormed into her wedding venue yesterday, while livestreaming on Instagram.
“Hey Britney!” he can be heard shouting as he walks around the premises. “I’m here to crash the wedding because nobody is here except Sam. Where the f— is the family?”
“So here’s the inside scoop guys of the bulls— wedding,” he said as he filmed. Viewers who were watching the livestream commented that they were “scared” for Britney’s safety as Jason made his way around her house and disturbingly told someone off camera, “Don’t f— with me bro, I’m done.”
Jason was eventually arrested by police officers, People reports.
