George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin looked ridiculously happy and in love and, well, very attractive during their wedding weekend in Venice.

The couple were wed in a brief ceremony on Saturday at 8 p.m. at Venice's Aman Canal Grande Hotel under an arch of imported white roses, according to Us Weekly. The couple exchanged vows that they wrote themselves.

The ceremony itself was off-limits to paparazzi, who were thrown off the scent with fake details released to the media. (Clooney had very strict instructions about photo-taking for his guests.) But because this is Venice, we have plenty of pictures of the couple as well as their star-studded guest list ferrying around the city on water taxis for a bachelorette party, the ceremony itself and brunch the next day. Some of those guests included Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Cindy Crawford with husband Rande Gerber, Matt Damon, Anna Wintour, and Bono.

Alamuddin's father Ramzi Alamuddin told the newlyweds: "Now it's time for grandchildren!"
