While we expected the official word any day now, the big news arriving before the weekend even threw us for a bit of a loop.
But, alas…People magazine broke the news…
"It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends," the couple said in a statement.
I guess they finally figured they should get the paperwork over with now that the paps have caught on to their secret plans.
Photos and more exclusive details are expected in next week’s issue of the celebrity mag, so we can only assume that the nuptials happened on Friday.
As we previously reported, Justin and Jessica got engaged in December of 2011. JT popped the question in Big Sky Country, Montana.
Leading up to the big event, the couple has been treating their lucky guest list to a variety of activities at their Italian wedding day destination.
Earlier this week, photos leaked showing the wedding party celebrating during a pre-wedding beachside dinner party. Guests were also treated to a fireworks display, campfires, Italian folk music, costal bike rides and endless views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Things have been secretive leading up to the “I dos,” though. According to reports, guests were flown out to Cala Masciola beach on a private jet from NYC without even knowing the specifics of the week’s events.
Whatever the specifics on how they got there, word is out now…Cheers to the happy couple!
