The 30-year-old actress was spotted at the Borgo Egnazia Resort, saying goodbye to guests who came there to attend her wedding on Friday evening.
They both released a statement following the wedding, telling People.com, “'It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends.” Timberlake went on to describe the day as “magical” while Biel said “It was a fantasy.”
According to RadarOnline, the wedding cost the couple $6.5 million. Their nuptials included a beach party as well as a wine and cheese picnic. In order to try to keep the location a secret, they had flown guests to Germany first, before placing them on a private jet to get to the resort in Italy.
Biel and Timberlake started dating in 2007, after Timberlake asked her on a date-over the phone. He told UK’s Hello! Magazine, “The way I see it, if you’re asking a girl out on a date, it’s only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice. I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes.
But I have a fair amount of tenacity and if I want something I stick to it. And in the end she agreed,” Timberlake went on to say.
On Saturday, Timberlake was spotted wearing his wedding band for the first time.
This is the first marriage for both stars.
