    Even the security guys/water taxi drivers are wearing the 'George and Amal' official logo. It's more public and about as sincere as Kim/Kanye. Vogue America will have the exclusive photos.

    Here's a YouTube video of water.org's session at the CGI, hosted by Peeta Planet.

    The wedding

    Here's a brief video of Matt, Lucy, and (I think) John and Emily arriving at the hotel.


    I'm not cynical about this marriage, She's never been married before and a wedding is a big deal in the Lebanese community. It's obvious from the look on George's face that he's absolutely smitten with her. He's not a good enough actor to pretend that "I just got hit by a two-by-four" look. Lol. I wish them all the best.

    Papa show

    This looks like some pretty good confirmation for Gregory for that Oct date!

    They look so young and relaxed. Love it. Thank you.

    Pool pic

    Two photos of Matt and Lucy greeting others around the pool in Venice (Matt's about to hug Grant Heslov and Lucy's hugging his wife):

    Re: Pool pic

    Telephoto lenses, whew, looks like that was taken when Matt and co had just arrived.

    There's another friend of Matt there. The photog in the boat with George and Amal is Sam Jones. Probably hired by Vogue.

    Dinner photos

    Just Jared has dinner (probably post dinner) photos.


    Amal is stunning. I think she is such a gorgeous woman. I love Lucy's dress. And Matt in a vest - that's a rarity.

    Re: Dinner photos

    Thanks for the link. A lovely and daring dress for Lucy. It's just so public by intention and I don't understand the complete turnaround by George to make his life a magazine special. George had so many options to make this a private affair, and it just seems like this is stage 1 of a future political career and a life deliberately staged in the media. (Nice pickup with Sam Jones.) Happy to have a holiday weekend here as the coverage will be crazy.

    More photos (the article claims Matt was on the same boat as Anna Wintour, and Emily was certainly there as well):

    Emily's dress:

    Re: Dinner photos

    Thanks for all the great work you do keeping up with craziness like this!

    I guess I have so much respect for George that I choose not to be cynical about him. He's gonna have to prove me wrong. Amal and her family and their obvious desire to have a splashy wedding have to be taken into account, too. Apparently they're paying for at least a chunk of it.

    In one of the photos in which Matt and Lucy are walking straight at the camera you get just a tiny glimpse of Emily walking down the stairs in front of them. It's odd that the press have almost totally ignored them. I know John isn't really known in Europe but in that photo he's actually behind the boat tie-up pole! Ha, ha!

    Re: Dinner photos

    Love these fake headlines at Gawker (comments section):

    The most unlikely guest has to be the guitarist from Toto.

    Photos from inside the dinner:

    (one of the pics inside at the dinner needs a caption competition)

    More of Lucy's dress and heels as she walks to the dinner with Matt (strange shoe choice from Matt):
