In an intimate weekend ceremony on Saturday, music superstar Alicia Keys, 29, married her producer fiance Swizz Beatz at a private home on the Meditteranean in front of their closest family and friends. Guests included Keys's mother and Swizz Beatz's oldest son, Nasir.
"It's a brand new day," Swizz Beatz posted on his Twitter page on Saturday evening. The couple's close friend, Deepak Chopra, presided over the wedding. Keys, who is five months pregnant with the couple's first child, wore a flowing white Grecian one-shoulder Vera Wang gown. A week ago she tweeted: "Trying on dresses with mama, ladies time is so essential and FUN!!" Her groom wore a Tom Ford tux.
When rumors swirled a couple of weeks ago that the couple was getting married soon, both stayed tight-lipped. But Swizz did admit that he is not a sit-back-and-watch groom. "I’m a planner!" he admits. "I like getting into the detail of things...[I like] being involved with the wedding. "I’m not the person who sits back and goes, okay, well I’ll just show up," he said in an interview with OK magazine. "I’m actually spearheading certain plans but it’s a nice blend, a nice partnership.”
