Along the way, she fell in love with a local boy (Hemsworth) and learned to love music again.
The love story touched the hearts of millions, and made Cyrus and Hemsworth one of America's favorite celebrity couples for years. Over the weekend, all of the culminated in their real-life wedding, which Cyrus revealed in photos on Wednesday on social media.

Cyrus and Hemsworth dated on and off for many years between their days on that film set and their wintry wedding this weekend. They broke up several times, stoking the rumor mill and fighting off gossip articles. At one point, the two even called of their engagement for a time.
All of that seems to have paid off in the long run, however, as Cyrus and Hemsworth are as happy as can be in their new photos. Pictures from their wedding first emerged on Saturday night, and were quickly taken down. Many fans thought that Cyrus' younger sister, Noah had spilled the beans on Instagram as well. Finally, with the chaos of the holidays behind them, Cyrus posted the pictures herself on Wednesday afternoon.
