Good things come to those who wait ... at least in the case of Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake.
Following a 10-month engagement (and a brief split), the couple of five years tied the knot in southern Italy on Friday, People confirms.
They exchanged vows in a rustic, intimate ceremony attended by close family and friends, such as Biel's former "Seventh Heaven" co-star Beverley Mitchell and Timberlake's "D--k in a Box" partner Andy Samberg. "It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends," the newlyweds mused.
According to an insider, the pair had taken "extra precautions" to keep the location under-wraps, even going so far as to have guests fly into Germany where they were then handed tickets to proceed to Italy. Guests did not know the final destination until they had those hot tickets in-hand. That's some serious planning.
However, even though this was a rather small, private affair (by Hollywood standards at least), the festivities were anything but. Events kicked off Tuesday, Oct. 16, and lasted through the week. Because that's how these two roll.
On Wednesday evening, the couple hosted a casual dinner party on Cala Masciola beach on the Adriatic Sea that included cocktails, music and an impressive 10-minute fireworks display. It's estimated they likely spent an eye-popping $6 million on the weeklong soiree, which makes us wonder if they saved anything for the honeymoon… though something tells us they've got it sorted out.
Our congratulations to the happy couple!
