Amor in Italia! George and Amal Clooney weren't the only lovebirds at their August wedding in Venice. Far from it, actually.

Not only did couples like Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt attend the star-studded affair, the nuptials also brought together actress Ellen Barkin and Amal's colleague Ben Emmerson — and they are now engaged!

"She is so happy and in love again," a source told Us Weekly of Barkin, adding that the couple got engaged over the holidays. "Ellen met him at George and Amal's wedding and they totally hit it off," the source went on to explain. "It happened quickly but she's totally fallen for him and flies to see him all the time."

Barkin, a television and movie actress who also won a Tony Award for her role in The Normal Heart in 2011, has been married twice previously, but this seems like a match made in heaven. Emmerson is a British barrister and Queen's counsel who reportedly won his fiancée over with his smarts as well as his charm. "He is really handsome and smart and charming and swept her off her feet," the source said.

In case you're wondering, yes, the newlyweds responsible for this love match are equally thrilled. "George and Amal love them together!" the source enthusiastically shared. "They both love Ellen and Ben so they think this is so great and love that they made a great match happen."
