After much build-up, the actress has finally married multihyphenate beau in Italy. Jess touched down in the country for final dress fittings earlier this month, while the couple's closest family and friends arrived this week. Guests have even been signing NDAs before flying into one airport and then transported to the top-secret wedding location in the sunny southern part of the country, where they've visited the sites and dined on the best local cuisine.

Surrounded by private security and local police, guests (including Beverly Mitchell and frequent J.T. music collaboraters Timbaland and Rob Knox) got the grotto all to themselves. They lounged on white recliners around open fires, and were served cheeses made in the grotto, milk from goats, local olives, ricotta and wine from the area.
