From Us Weekly:
As Us Weekly reported last week, Justin Timberlake serenaded bride Jessica Biel with an original new ballad at their Oct. 19 wedding in Puglia, Italy. Now, in a new interview with Britain’s Hello! magazine, the 31-year-old crooner confirms that he sang for Biel, 30 — as she walked down the aisle!
“I figured if there was something I was going to be able to offer, it would be to sing her down the aisle,” Timberlake explains to the magazine. And his soulful sweet sounds moved their 150 guests (including Andy Samberg, Beverley Mitchell and Questlove) looking on inside the chapel at Borgo Egnazia resort.
“Grown men were weeping. Hopefully it’s because I didn’t sound bad,” Timberlake reveals.
For her big bridal moment, the Total Recall actress donned a custom-made Giambattista Valli gown — in pink!
“[It] was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen,” Timberlake tells Hello.
One of Timberlake’s most memorable moments from the weeklong, multi-million dollar bash? The round of cheers from their friends and loved ones after exchanging vows.
“To hear all of our family and friends cheering at extremely loud, inappropriate decibel levels, that became the pinnacle of the ceremony,” he says. “It felt perfect. It felt like everything came together.”
As for why the couple — who had also mulled a California wedding early on — chose Italy? “We love to eat,” he explained.
Grown men were weeping, Justin Timberlake? Oh, I’m sure. I’m sure Andy Samberg was just hunched over in his seat, bawling at the beauty of your song. I’m sure, if they had been invited, your brothers from NSYNC would have been that moved as well. But the grown man weeping the most? I believe that would have been Jessica Biel‘s father. He would have been weeping all week just from the knowledge that his daughter truly found a winner.
