Jessica Biel married Justin Timberlake at Borgo Egnazia Resort in Puglia, Italy on October 19, 2012.

Guests at the destination wedding included Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, Beverley Mitchell and singer Timbaland.

As the bride walked down the aisle, Justin serenaded her with a song he had written. She carried a bouquet of chamomile, ranunculus and ruscus.

Her custom petal-pink strapless gown was by Giambattista Valli, and was enhanced with layers of delicate tulle. She complemented the dress with yellow and pink diamond and rose gold earrings by Martin Katz. Her veil was accented with pearls from her grandmother’s wedding day tiara.

Justin wore a black suit by Tom Ford.

The couple recited personal vows under the stars in the resort’s piazza. The candlelit nondenominational ceremony was officiated by their friend, Bill Purple.

They exchanged gold bands with a hammered finish by Leor Yerushalmi of the Jewelers of Las Vegas.

Following the vows, guests were escorted to an al fresco bar for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres including lobster in turnip tops and mini caprese salads.

The couple shared their first dance to Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You”, before everyone hit the dance floor for tunes spun by DJ Questlove.

For dinner, a four-course meal was served featuring steak and sea bass. At the conclusion of the evening, the classic Italian dessert affogato (a scoop of ice cream topped with a shot of espresso) was enjoyed, along with a three-tiered almond and coconut wedding cake.

Biel and Timberlake honeymooned on a safari in Africa at Singita Grumeti, a private reserve in Serengeti Park. They stayed at the Faru Faru Lodge.
