George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have tied the knot.

The couple married at the Aman Canal Grande luxury resort in Venice, Italy Saturday. Officiating the private ceremony was their close friend and the former mayor of Rome, Walter Veltroni.

Matt Damon and John Krasinski were among the big names attending the ceremony.

The couple got engaged in April, shocking the entertainment world, which had written Clooney off as an eternal bachelor. But Alamuddin is everything Clooney had seemingly been looking for for years — smart, stunning and successful.

In April a Clooney pal explained the connection to People, "He has found someone who is as smart as he is and who is her own independent woman ... Amal seems to be the best fit for him he's ever had.”

In September Clooney gushed about his bride-to-be at an event, telling her from the stage, "I love you very much and I can't wait to be your husband."

 

The pair dated for just months before the actor popped the question with a sizable sparkler. August 6th, news broke they’d gotten a marriage license in London. Alamuddin is a U.K. citizen.

 

The two had dropped subtle hints they’d wed in Italy — visiting and bringing her mother and his parents to his villa in Lake Como. The adorable moms were even spotted shopping together — all signs pointed to preparations for a wedding

Of course Clooney has been a longtime fan of the country. Good pals John Krasinski and Emily Blunt even wed at his villa in 2010.

 

Congrats to the happy couple — we certainly waited long enough, George!
