ExpandGeorge Clooney is married.

Great,
you made it down here without collapsing. George Clooney, a man
notorious for being handsome and desirable for all 53 years on His
Earth, is now married to a woman who most agree is better than him,
Amal Alamuddin. The pair had their intimate and obsessively
photographed nuptials at the Aman Canal Grande in Venice, Italy on
Saturday evening. To quote People magazine, “Congratulazioni!” to the happy couple.

Pure, earnest love between a man who has malaria
and a successful barrister and author will always be beautiful, but
today it could never be quite as stunning or waterproof as the wedding’s
real stars: a mess of boats puttering about in the canals of Venezia. Molto bellissimo, Giorgio! Where’d you get dem boats?

From the beginning of the festivities, which kicked off on Friday as the happy pair arrived to Venice together,
the camera focus had not been on Clooney nor Alamuddin’s gorgeous heads
of sea-salty hair. The shellacked sides and low-riding bums of a few
dozen boats were the real stars: a fleet of motoscafi, transporting guests from place to place, like really, it’s no big deal. Figurati! Boss boats, just doing their jobs.

Celebrities
of all stripes and relative popularity attending the Clooney
wedding—Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Anna Wintour, Bill Murray, Cindy
Crawford, a person named Bono—but not one person was able to navigate
the canals in scuba gear. God bless those boats. There’d be no wedding
without them!

“I’m going to hold my camera up high so I can catch the back of this boat.”
