It's official: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are now husband and wife.
There it is, after months of chatter and speculation, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes finally tied the knot Saturday Nov 18th at the Odescalchi Castle in Lake Bracciano, Italy. The black-tie ceremony was attended by more than 150 guests.
Joined by family members, including the couple's newly born Suri and Cruise's children with Nicole Kidman Isabella and Connor, the sunset ceremony was performed by a Scientology minister. Following the ceremony, guests were all treated with Italian hors d'oeuvres, followed by a multicourse meal and a five-tiered white-chocolate wedding cake.
On the wedding, Cruise's publicist, Arnold Robinson, publicly confirmed that Cruise and Holmes had, in fact, been legally married before setting foot in Rome this week, saying the couple had "officialized their marriage in Los Angeles prior to their departure for Italy."
A-list celebrities attending the $2.5 million wedding among others are John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy, David Beckham, Victoria Adams and many more.
