It was a Celebrity Wedding Weekend

How Romantic!! These Lovebirds, and expectant parents, Harlem lady Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz (real name Kasseem Dean) ran away together and got married on the French Island of Corsica yesterday, Saturday the 31st July. It was a very low-key wedding with only their closest friends, family and A-list stars including U2 rocker Bono and Queen Latifah, who was there to show their support for the couple.

When they arrived on the Mediterranean Island, several days early, they enjoyed the beach and sunshine before making their commitment to love each other forever in a ceremony in Corsica, France. The absolutely beautiful Alicia Keys looked radiant in a flowing white gown, with a sweet little baby bump, and a diamond encrusted headband on the day of her wedding to Swizz Beatz, who was wearing a white tuxedo jacket, pink shirt, bow tie for their big day and shades.

This sweet newlywed couple is expecting their first baby together this November, they could not be happier about beginning a family together.

It was the wedding of the decade and now we finally have some of the amazing details of Chelsea Clinton's nuptials. Despite conspiracy theories that Rhinebeck was a "decoy" location to throw off the press, the wedding was indeed held at Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, NY.

Chelsea said her "I dos" to Marc Mezvinsky under a flower chuppah outdoors on a picturesque afternoon. Details of the rest of the evening are beginning to emerge. One includes the current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, being hoisted in chairs above a dancing crowd at the reception, as is typical at Jewish weddings. According to the Washington Post, other notable moments include when Chelsea reminded the minister of the next verse when an unexpected breeze turned the page in his book too soon, and when the bride traded her strapless Vera Wang ballgown for a slinkier white dress and took to the floor for a cute choreographed first dance to "At Last." (Bill danced with Chelsea to "The Way You Look Tonight" for their father-daughter number).

Lavish? Definitely. The guest list totaled around 400 people, several of whom stayed at the Delamater Inn and took chartered buses to the wedding. Chelsea reportedly had 12 bridesmaids who wore plum sashes around their custom Vera Wang gowns, and nearly as many groomsmen on Marc's side.
