John Legend & Chrissy Teigen Tie The Knot in Italy

John Legend, 34, and Chrissy Teigen, 27, had said they were getting married in September.
And they did get married in September.  On Saturday. In Italy.  A source previously revealed that they chose the scenic location for their wedding because "that's where they fell in love."
The singer and the model made it official when they exchanged vows in front of friends and family in Lake Como, reports  Legend's rep confirmed the happy news to USA TODAY.  Chrissy, who got engaged to John in 2011 after four years of dating, also recently said she was feeling relaxed about their nuptials as she had let her wedding planner take complete control of the event.  She said: "I'm excited. I can't wait for the ceremony. [John] and I have been working and traveling so much that we just let our wedding planner do everything. We're not neurotic about it. I just want to finally see all of my friends in one area." The Sports Illustrated beauty gave no indication she was about to say 'I do' when she attended shows at New York Fashion Week on Thursday but she revealed she had purchased three Vera Wang wedding gowns for her special day.  She told the Huffington Post: "Every time I went in [to Vera Wang] for a fitting, I couldn't stop getting one. It's just too pretty."  And Teigen tweeted in the early morning hours Sunday: "Phew. I gotta say, that was a hard secret to keep from you guys."  Her wedding dress was a strapless ivory gown with a "kind of a sexier feel at the top, like a swimsuit," she said. Teigen changed into another strapless ivory Vera Wang dress for the reception. And at the after-party she had a third Vera Wang design of the night – a crimson strapless mermaid gown.  Joining the couple to celebrate the special event: Family and friends including Kanye West and Stevie Wonder, along with Brooklyn Decker, who was maid of honor, says Us Weekly. The insider said that the couple's guests would be staying in a hotel in the region for about four or five days for the celebration.

Sidebar: I guess John was definitely unable to sing at LeBron James wedding since he was getting all hitched himself.  Congrats to the happy couple! Check out the song John wrote for Chrissy and sang on Oprah's next chapter.
