I’d like to be the first to congratulate Swizz Beatz and his wife Alicia Keys on their wedding celebration that happened today (Sat. July. 31st, 2010). Swizz hit me up about the festivities last week, but I promised to keep it under wraps until the big day.
The couple brought together an intimate gathering of family and friends and celebrated their new marriage and their baby on the way, aboard a 260-foot yacht on the Mediterranean Sea, near Sardinia’s uber-exclusive Costa Smeralda enclave* (think St.Tropez-swag on 100-thousand-trillion, lol).
Apparently Swizz was dropping hints on Twitter:
He tweeted about the pre-wedding festivities last night and on the big day all he could say was “Wowwwww!”
Obviously because Swizz and AK aren’t Italian citizens, they got officially hitched in the Tri-State area before leaving for Europe. And at that small ceremony, the bride reportedly wore Vera Wang, the groom wore Tom Ford, and, of course, the footwear was all Louboutin (Swizz’s friend and collaborator*). Meanwhile Swizz celebrated with not one but two bachelor parties, one in New York and one on Friday (July 30) at Sardinia’s legendary Billionaire Club (owned by Formula One scion Flavio Briatore and home to the $50k Cristal methuselahs)*.
I’ve been hearing details about Friday’s all-white party and the lifestyle of Costa Smeralda…it definitely seems like a slice of “La Dolce Vita” that traditionally excludes rather than embraces diversity
