Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz got married yesterday in Italy…there had been rumors that the wedding was soon…but Italy was unexpected!!!

Miss Info has the scoop,

Swizz hit me up about the festivities last week, but I promised to keep it under wraps until the big day.

The couple brought together an intimate gathering of family and friends and celebrated their new marriage and their baby on the way, aboard a 260-foot yacht on the Mediterranean Sea, near Sardinia’s uber-exclusive Costa Smeralda enclave* (think St.Tropez-swag on 100-thousand-trillion, lol).

(Swizz’s first reaction to his wedding-celebration day*, lol)

Just last weekend, the couple was in the Hamptons, at Russell Simmons’ annual Art For Life benefit*. And while Swizz recently told OK Magazine* that he was actively involved in the planning of his wedding, he’s also been juggling studio time with Coldplay, Lenny Kravitz, and for his own album.

Obviously because Swizz and AK aren’t Italian citizens, they got officially hitched in the Tri-State area before leaving for Europe. And at that small ceremony, the bride reportedly wore Vera Wang, the groom wore Tom Ford, and, of course, the footwear was all Louboutin (Swizz’s friend and collaborator*). Meanwhile Swizz celebrated with not one but two bachelor parties, one in New York and one on Friday (July 30) at Sardinia’s legendary Billionaire Club (owned by Formula One scion Flavio Briatore and home to the $50k Cristal methuselahs)*.

The groom hinted at his party on twitter* last night, saying, “MY PARTY IS CRAZYYYYYYYY ITALY BABY.” I’ve been hearing details about Friday’s all-white party and the lifestyle of Costa Smeralda…it definitely seems like a slice of “La Dolce Vita” that traditionally excludes rather than embraces diversity. I love seeing our hip-hop home-grown bringing their sensibility to the rest of the world, and soaking up art and culture in an even exchange. Much love to the couple and their families, and also to T.I. and Tiny who got married on Friday* : )
