Who doesn't love a couple of newlyweds? Justin Timberlake is clearly besotted by his new bride Jessica Biel, and has spoken with People magazine about their Friday wedding at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Puglia Italy.
"It was magical," he told the magazine, which has an exclusive on the nuptials and will feature them in this week's issue. "It was an unforgettable evening."
"It was a fantasy," said Biel.
The pair expressed love for Italy's food and wine, which was one reason they decided to wed there. (Undoubtedly one other bonus was that it was relatively out of the way for most American paparazzi.)
The pair were joined by friends and family and wed after several days of pre-wedding parties. Thursday the couple hosted an outdoor gathering with open fires, cheese, olives and wine; the night before that the wedding party watched fireworks and listened to live music on a beach.
E! Online published what it was calling the "first photo" of the newlyweds, sporting casual attire at an airport in Italy on Sunday. Us Weekly also weighed in with a "first picture" of Timberlake sporting his new wedding band.
"It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends," said the couple in a statement.
