Italy is for lovers! This European country has been a favorite destination for celebrity weddings for years, including the wedding of George and Amal Clooney in 2014, thanks to its romantic landscapes.
“[The staff] was preparing bouquets, table setting and other floral decorations in the dead of night,” a source at the hotel exclusively told us during the extravagant affair. “Everything they used was white with green flecks, a lot of roses and peonies were used.”
The couple’s big day was made much sweeter thanks to the wedding guests, among whom were Matt Damon, Anna Wintour, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.
Randy Gerber, who co-founded Casamigos Tequila with George, was the actor’s best man. “He’s going to have a lot of fun with George,” an insider teased Gerber’s speech at the reception. “They want people to laugh and be happy while celebrating the weekend.”
Four months earlier, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made headlines at their elaborate wedding in Florence, Italy.
The couple, who broke up in 2021, began their wedding weekend in May 2014 with a rehearsal dinner in Paris. However, when it came to the ceremony, the guests headed to Italy.
“It was such a magical moment that we have this, that we shared it with the world,” Kardashian said during an appearance on Today after her celebration.
Eight years later, the older sister of the founder of KKW Beauty, Kourtney Kardashian, chose Italy as the location for her third wedding to Travis Barker. After two other ceremonies in California and Las Vegas, the last of which was illegal, in May 2022, the founder of Poosh finally exchanged vows in front of his family.
“Happily ever after,” Courtney captioned a series of photos on Instagram after she and Barker said yes in front of a candle-decorated altar off the coast of Italy. All the sisters of the reality TV star were present, as well as her mother Kris Jenner.
Both of Courtney’s children— she shares sons Mason and Rain and daughter Penelope with ex Scott Disick—were also by her side at the third event. The musician’s two children, Landon and Alabama, whom he shares with ex-wife Shanna Moakler, and stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya also witnessed the romantic day.
