Timberlake-Biel wedding kicks off with famous folks, fireworks

Ciao, bella! Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s Italian wedding is off and running, as famous friends have landed in the southern town of Puglia.

Widely published paparazzi shots have folks such as “SNL” alum Andy Samberg, “7th Heaven” actress Beverley Mitchell and music manager Johnny Wright in attendance.

Wednesday saw a cocktail reception at exclusive beach club Cala Masciola, a luxury haven on the Adriatic Sea, where lanterns and Champagne awaited the casually dressed crowd.

Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” piped through the fete, extra-exclusive as according to Masicola’s website the beach is closed through Oct. 31. The entire party was later treated to a 10-minute fireworks show.

Timberlake and Biel have been engaged since December. This will be the first marriage for both. Hopefully the couple will take extra precaution in opening Samberg’s wedding gift, particularly if it comes in a box.


Stay tuned to the Ministry for more details as the couple inch closer to the altar.
