Some of us have long held the belief that Jessica Biel, whom we’re sure is a lovely person, is kinda responsible for Justin Timberlake’s retreat from music-making in favor of things like acting, repping for MySpace, reciting poetry at golf tournaments and coming out with home decor lines. So those some of us were also slightly sad about the news that the couple finally tied the knot last Friday. But now that the photos of their wedding have come out in People (for which they reportedly received $300,000), we’re starting to feel a little better about things.
First of all, look at the ecstatic expression on Justin’s face. He’s literally jumping for joy. (We hope that’s slightly Photoshopped, ’cause it looks like he’s about to land right on top of Jessica’s breathtaking pink Giambatista Valli Haute Couture gown.) Having been through the whole process myself, I recognize that face as one of happiness that now that he’s made it through the whole courtship and wedding-planning stuff that absolutely takes over your life, he can get on with a whole lot of other creative pursuits.
Good sign #2: He WROTE A SONG for the wedding, and performed it on guitar as Jessica walked down the aisle. “It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her,” he told People. Hallelujah!
Good sign #3, our imaginary tales from their week-long Italian wedding celebration was (along with that photo of a guest mooning the paps). “It was a lot to ask of them to travel, so we figured we’d give our guests a good party!” he said. Maybe they’re not going to be all about golf and dinner parties after all.
