A ‘Magical’ Wedding For Justin Timberlake-Jessica Biel
For the actor-singer-songwriter, his marriage ceremony was “magical”.
“It was an unforgettable evening. It was magical,” Timberlake, 31, told People magazine in an exclusive interview.
Italy happened to be a special location for the couple partly because of their love for its food and wine. It served as the perfect backdrop for the festivities. A day before the wedding, the couple hosted a party for guests who hung out around open fires and dined on fresh-made cheese, local olives and wine. The night before, the group celebrated at a beach where they watched fireworks and listened to live music.
Apparently, the bride Jessica Biel let Justin Timberlake’s mom call all the shots at the wedding. A source close to the actress revealed, “As far as Jessica was concerned, she would have been just as happy to have a very small wedding with only a handful of friends and close family members present.” But Timberlake’s mom, Lynn Harless, wanted a nice, splashy bash for her beloved boy and Jessica has reportedly come to terms with the fact “that Lynn is a very powerful factor in Justin’s life and, if she wants to have a smooth marriage, she has to have Lynn in her corner. … A big part of that is letting Lynn have her way.”
The couple had split from each other a while ago, before they reunited and got engaged earlier this year.
Stepping out of tradition, the actress wore a pink dress created by Italian designer Giambattista Valli, who also made the bridesmaids’ gowns. “It was a fantasy,” said Biel.
Timberlake himself was said to be outfitted in a wedding suit made just for him by designer and filmmaker Tom Ford.
