For the last decade or so, scores of hot celebrity couples have retreated to one foreign locale for their star-studded nuptials. From Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biels, Italy has time and time again proved to be perfect for a destination wedding. And why? Because Italy has so much to offer! From lavish weddings in ancient cathedrals to intimate ceremonies in private villas, almost any location in Italy provides a scenic backdrop.
Italy is also the locale for this month’s celebrity wedding special!
On Saturday, September 14th, singer John Legend married model Chrissy Teigen overlooking the outrageously beautiful Lake Como. As per any celebrity wedding, the guest list featured an abundance of stars including Kanye West, Quincy Jones, and model Brooklyn Decker (who also served as a bridesmaid!). The party of 125 guests later dined on Italian fare, including truffle risotto.
The 2 major highlights of the wedding? The music and the dress(es)! Not only did the groom serenade his bride with a piano rendition of “All of Me,” but guest Stevie Wonder treated the entire crowd to a performance of “Ribbon in the Sky.” And yes, we did say dresses (plural) as the bride slipped into not one, not two, but three Vera Wang dresses throughout the day! She started the day in a stunning ivory strapless ball gown, which featured hand-cut petal embroidery. For the reception she donned another ivory dress, but switched to a mermaid style with an organza full skirt. Finally, she stuck with the mermaid style but went with a colorful frock of crimson to cap the evening. What a lucky lady!
We just want to know with the wedding being in Lake Como, who stayed at George Clooney’s house??
