George and Amal Clooney celebrate their first anniversary on Sunday, and with how intensely perfect they were together from the very beginning, it's not hard to remember all the amazing moments they've had along the way.
These are 11 of the sweetest memories we have of George and Amal's first year of marriage!
With Amal and George showcasing tons of PDA during the couple’s getaway to Ibiza in August, there's no question that this relationship is going as strong as ever. Amal’s stunning gold dress wasn’t too tough to look at either!
2. When George told Stephen Colbert he is Amal's trophy husband.
“What is it like to be the arm candy in a relationship, because she’s the very serious person?” Stephen asked George, his very first Late Show guest. “She must say, like, ‘We’re going to meet extremely intelligent people tonight -- these are not show folk. Just be shiny and pretty.”
“That’s mostly what I do,” Clooney confirmed.
3. When George revealed why he loves Amal.
"She's an amazing human being," he told ET in May about what caused him to fall for Amal. "And she's caring. And she also happens to be one of the smartest people I've ever met. And she's got a great sense of humor. There's a number of reasons why."
It's not hard to see the two falling in love, because as George revealed...
4. Amal is completely unpredictable in the best ways.
"It's amazing, because she's always -- since the day I met her -- she's always had this insanely ... it's eccentric but it's fun, sense of fashion," George said. "How she does it while she's got 11 cases she's working on, and she was teaching at Columbia, and she's still like, 'I want to wear that dress.' It's crazy. It has been sort of fascinating to watch, because she has such great taste."
5. The proposal.
"I was at my home and I queued up a playlist of some of my aunt Rosemary's songs and I asked, and she just kept saying, 'Oh my God' and 'Wow' -- completely unexpected," George told CBS News in May. "And you know, I just said, I'm 53 at the time ... 'I've been on my knee now for 28 minutes so I gotta get an answer out of this 'cause I’m gonna throw a hip out. I might not be able to stand back up.'"
"[I've got] a real decision maker, a much smarter decision maker," George said of Amal to CBS News. "I have someone I can talk to about anything, and someone who I care more about then I’ve cared about anybody. So it's really nice."
7. How non-possessive they are.
"She's a grown woman with her own career," the actor admitted last week about how the couple has found themselves pretty busy as their anniversary draws near. "It's tough when they're stabbing her co-counselor [defense lawyer Mahfooz Saeed] in the head a couple days before she gets there. It's a little nerve wracking. But she's doing the right thing and she's doing it for the right reasons."
9. The deep care and concern they share for each other.
Amal is in Maldives, defending Mohamed Nasheed, the country's former president who is currently imprisoned in a Maafushi jail, pro bono in an effort to overturn the former politician's 13-year sentence. He is being detained for "terrorism." However, the 37-year-old civil rights attorney referred to Nasheed's arrest as "a mockery of justice" when she spoke to The Guardian in April, calling it "arbitrary and in violation of international law."
Despite the importance of the case, George has been worried about his love. "Her co-council was just stabbed in the head a few days ago. It's a dangerous place to be right now," he said. "I'm very concerned with her being there, quite honestly."
10. How OVER the Golden Globes Amal was.
"George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year,” Tina Fey joked during the 2015 Golden Globes. “Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria and was selected for a three-person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award.”
Tina was so right, and Amal DID look bored, but she stuck it out, because LOVE IS BEAUTIFUL.
