Happy Birthday Jessica Biel! The 7th Heaven Star is not only one of our favorite Hollywood stars, she's also half of one of our favorite celebrity couples. When Biel married Justin Timberlake in 2012, the couple became the cornerstone of young newlywed love. And we're joining Justin (see below for his sweetest birthday message to Jessica on Instagram!) in wishing his gorgeous wifey a happy birthday! And, if their recent PDA at the Vanity Fair Oscars after party is any indication, the couple — parents to 11-month old Silas — is still very much in the honeymoon phase. To us, it seems like only yesterday the couple said "I do" in the Italian countryside surrounded by family and friends (with Jessica in a seriously awe-inspiring wedding dress). In honor of Jessica Biel's 34th birthday we're looking back on her 2012 wedding celebration with Justin Timberlake!
Around 100 guests were invited to spend the week with Biel and Timberlake in Puglia, Italy to celebrate their wedding on October 19, 2012. The star heavy crowd gathered at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Puglia for a private over-the-top event! The white-stoned, castle-like Borgo Egnazia offered the couple, and their celebrity guests, the utmost privacy. The 63-room, 28-villa luxury hotel feels like a mini-village, and was tight on security, so guests didn't have to be nervous about the paparazzi.
Now, let's talk about that dress! On the big day, Jessica wowed everyone by foregoing with tradition and opting out of wearing white on her wedding day (we love a non-conformist bride!). The future Mrs. Timberlake walked down the aisle in a jaw-dropping, floating-on-air custom, petal pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown. The veil, also created by Giambattista Valli, was encrusted with Biel's heirloom pearls, and Valli outfitted the entire wedding party (including the bride and groom's moms) in his gorgeous creations.
Meanwhile, the groom wore a custom Tom Ford tux, that he helped design. Timberlake's groomsmen, the bride and groom's fathers, and the page boy, also wore Tom Ford.
As Biel walked down the aisle in her stunning pink dress she was serenaded by non other than, you guessed it, her ex-boy bander husband! "It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her," Timberlake told People.
The star-studded guest list at the week-long celebration read like a who's who of young Hollywood — Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, Timbaland, and Beverley Mitchell just to name a few. "It was a really special evening," Justin told People.
Marriage has suited the couple well, they often gush over each other on Instagram, playfully show off their PDA court-side at Basketball games, are the life of the party at other weddings, and aren't shy about declaring their love, especially to Ellen Degeneres.
"It's nice, to marry your best friend," Justin told Ellen a few months after the wedding. Hey Justin, we'll marry you.
The couple welcomed their first child, Silas, in 2015 and their behaving like any new parents. Timberlake often posts pictures of Biel and Silas to his Instagram, while she posts pics when they get to have "date night."
Want more proof that Biel and Timberlake are the cutest new parents on the block? Look no further than more PDA at the Oscars and Justin's adorable birthday message to Jessica on Instagram! The "Sexy Back" singer took to Instagram to wish his wife a happy "Bae-day" as he put it, captioning the photo: "Happy BAE-DAY, baby!! I can't put into words what you mean to me... You are the GREATEST Mommy and Wife a man could ever ask for. I love you to the MOON AND BACK!!! --Your Huz" Justin, will you be our huz? Too cute for words!
