It's official: George Clooney is off the market!
The famous Hollywood hunk said goodbye to his bachelor days after tying the knot to his ladylove Amal Alamuddin in a beautiful and intimate symbolic wedding ceremony in Venice, Italy, Saturday evening after sunset.
The actor, who assumingly looked extremely dapper in his black Armani tux, was greeted with his beautiful lady at the gorgeous Aman Canal Grande hotel.
Clooney and his blushing bride swapped vows on a podium in front of a large wall of white candles in the presence of more than 100 of their nearest and dearest, which included a star-studded list of names like Cindy Crawford, who wore a blue, sleeveless, V-neck gown, and husband Rande Gerber, plus Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso (wearing Resort 15), John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, Ellen Barkin, Anna Wintour, U2 frontmanBono and...wait for it...Bill Murray!
Clooney and Alamuddin's wedding venue was decorated with white flowers, including tiny roses, lilies and carnations as well as hundreds of additional hand-crafted flickering candles.
Guests sipped on hundreds of bottles of champagne and red wine and celebrated with disco and jazz music past midnight.
The bride's day got started early this morning when she got her makeup and hair done at the Aman Canal Grande, where Clooney and guests joined her. And we can only hope that Amal was able to get some rest before her big day, because she had a busy night last night.
The 53-year-old actor and his fiancée kicked off the wedding festivities when they arrived in Venice on Friday, looking every bit the perfect couple as they boated through the canal. Their guests arrived the same way. Throughout the day and Saturday, scores of excited tourists snapped photos as police scrambled to ensure traffic along the waters moved swiftly.
On the day of the wedding, guests dressed in formalwear and were greeted at the dock of the hotel by staffers wearing traditional venetian gondolier outfits, complete with straw boater hats and white shirts. Crowds cheered as they watched the arrival of the celebrities and yelled especially loud for Bono.

And, of course, before Clooney and his human rights lawyer love, 36, were able to say "I Do," they needed one last night of pre-wedding fun—the traditional bachelor and bachelorette parties, of course!
Alamuddin got all dolled up, donning a gorgeous red gown as she arrived in a boat with about 10 of her nearest and dearest gal-pals, including her sister, Tala and mom, Baria, for her last night as a single lady. She and her friends were accompanied by a second boat that had Clooney and his guys also riding to the Aman for his bachelor party.
Once the two groups arrived to their destination, "George escorted Amal down there then left," an eyewitness told E! News.

Hours before the wedding ceremony on Saturday, Clooney had breakfast with Crawford and Gerber on the terrace of the Belmond Hotel Cipriani, overlooking the Venetian lagoon.
"They were laughing and joking," an onlooker told E! News. "George looked so happy, he was sipping an espresso and chatting away happily. He couldn't stop smiling."
The wedding fun will continue on Sunday, when the newlyweds have lunch with their guests, a source tells E! News.
Clooney's rep confirms the actor and Alamuddin will wrap up their eventful weekend fun with a civil ceremony on Monday, at which point they will officially and legally be man and wife.
Congratulations to the two lovebirds!
