KIM KARDASHIAN & KANYE WEST
That's amore! In an epic weekend that spanned from Paris to Florence, Kardashian and West tied the knot in May 2014 at Italy's Forte di Belvedere, a 16th century fortress known for its sweeping panoramas and the fabulous contemporary art exhibitions it hosts. After a pre-wedding party in Versailles, France, the couple flew their 200 guests across the border for a grand Italian celebration – no surprise considering their elaborate engagement at San Francisco's ATampT Park in October 2013. The couple chose the Italian city for a pretty personal reason: It's where they conceived baby North.

JOHN LEGEND & CHRISSY TEIGEN
It took them seven years, but singer Legend and model Teigen finally made it down the aisle in September 2013, exchanging "I dos" in front of family and friends in Lake Como, Italy. The bride wore three different Vera Wang gowns throughout the night, and was treated to a sweet serenade by her new husband during the reception, which featured one pretty delicious cake.

Suri!) with a wedding that captivated Italy and the world.

After falling in love at first sight, then dating for two years, Blunt and Krasinski made it official in July 2010 – Italian style – with a private ceremony in Como. No surprise here: Krasinski's friend and director George Clooney has long kept an estate on Lake Como, and was one of the guests at the nuptials.

SOFIA COPPOLA & THOMAS MARS
Swoon: When Coppola wed Phoenix frontman Mars in an August 2011 civil ceremony, the couple traveled to her grandparents' hometown of Bernalda and said "I do" in the garden at the Palazzo Margherita, a historical building owned by her father, Francis Ford Coppola. The wedding meal was strictly Italian: cheeses, figs, pasta – and, of course, wine.

PETRA ECCLESTONE & JAMES STUNT
There were fireworks – literally! – over Formula One heiress Ecclestone's ultra-lavish August 2011 Roman celebration. The British socialite (here, with her father) exchanged vows with businessman Stunt at Castello Orsini-Odescalchi (where Tom and Katie wed) and entertained her high society guests – including Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie – with the help of Eric Clapton and the Black Eyed Peas.

MELISSA JOAN HART & MARK WILKERSON
Though a power outage threatened to foil Hart's 2003 nuptials in Florence to musician Wilkerson, the veteran performer kept her cool – and even found time for a nap before the ceremony, which took place in a villa that reminded Hart's wedding planner of Versailles.

CLAIRE FORLANI & DOUGRAY SCOTT
For the busy couple, getting married in the small village of Pievebovigliana "was like a vacation." Actors Forlani and Scott invited more than 100 guests to join them as they tied the knot in 2007, and to dine with them on dishes prepared by Forlani's Italian father, Pier.

Along with Charlize Theron, Penélope Cruz, Bono and more, the happy couple celebrated with "one magical moment after another."
