Swizz Beatz and Alicia KeysFirst it was Tiny and T.I. just before the weekend, and now Alicia Keys made it official with producer Swizz Beatz over the weekend by tying the knot in Italy.

According to Miss Info, the couple exchanged vows in a small, private ceremony aboard a 260-foot yacht on the Mediterranean Sea, near near Sardinia's uber-exclusive Costa Smeralda enclave.

Keys reportedly wore a white Grecian-inspired Vera Wang gown and a diamond encrusted tiara, and carried a bouquet of purple calla lilies. Swizzy wore a white Tom Ford tuxedo.

Only close friends and family attended. Among them were U2's Bono and Queen Latifah.

Before they tied the knot though, Swizzy reportedly celebrated with two bachelor parties -- one in New York and one on Friday (July 30) at Sardinia's legendary Billionaire Club.

He even tweeted about it: "My party is crazyyyyyyy Italy Baby."

After his wedding, the producer wrote this: "It's a brand new day :) I feel like Nas and Diddy song :) love y'all and blessing!"

The couple have been reportedly seeing each other for well over a year. Keys was actually rumored to be the reason of Swizzy's split with ex-wife Mashonda, despite the producer's denial.

Keys and Swizzy kept their relationship underwraps until his divorce was final back in May, which was then followed by an engagement and pregnancy announcement by the couple shortly after.

Since then, Keys has proudly displayed her baby bump -- performing at the World Cup Opening Ceremony and later at the 2010 BET Awards.
