Venice, Italy

Amal Alamuddin married George Clooney at Aman Canal Grande in Venice, Italy on September 27, 2014.

The wedding took place in front of 100 guests including Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski and Cindy Crawford.

A string ensemble performed “Here Comes the Bride” as Amal made her entrance.

She walked down the aisle on the arm of her father wearing a custom Oscar de la Renta French lace wedding gown. The dress was hand-embroidered with pearls and diamanté accents, and featured an off-the-shoulder neckline and a full circular train.

The groom wore a black tuxedo by Giorgio Armani. Made of ultra-fine wool/cashmere, he paired it with a white shirt, black bow tie and oxfords. The bride presented him with cufflinks inscribed with George written in Arabic.

The couple recited traditional vows during the 30 minute ceremony, which was officiated by the former mayor of Rome, Walter Veltroni.

They exchanged platinum wedding bands in front of an archway of white and cream colored flowers. Nora Sagal, the daughter of friends, sang the Irving Berlin song “Always.” The song was the same song Clooney’s parents, Nick and Nina, danced to at their wedding.

At the reception, the bride changed into a mini dress by Oscar de la Renta. The couple shared their first dance to Cole Porter’s “Why Shouldn’t I?” Later in the evening, British deejay Sam Young spun classic disco funk and soul music.

The dinner menu, prepared by Salza catering, was a classic Italian style feast which included potatoes with champagne and black truffles, lemon risotto with lobster, lemon and ricotta agnolotti, Chianina beef with porcini mushroom and sea bass with fruit and vegetable ceviche. Paired with the meal was Alain Navarre champagne, monogrammed with the couple’s signature “AG” initials.

A four-tiered square chocolate cake by Ramperti bakery was served with a gold art deco design to match the dining room.

The couple honeymooned in the Seychelles.
