Mena SuvariActress Mena Suvari married Simone Sestito Saturday in Vatican City, Italy.

"The ceremony was truly unique and Mena looked breathtaking," a guest told People. "They are very much in love."

Suvari, 31, is best known for her roles in American Pie and American Beauty. Sestito, 25, is a concert producer.

After meeting at the Toronto Film Festival in 2007, the couple got engaged in 2008. According to the magazine, they chose Italy for their nuptials because much of Sestito's family lives there.

After getting engaged, she gushed about her love to Us.

"I love him," she said of Sestito. "He's Italian and my family is part Greek, and it's all about family and culture...I love his family and it just inspires me to live that kind of life."

It's the Suvari's second marriage. She divorced her first husband, Robert Brinkman, in 2005.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Or rather, Congratulazioni!

Do you find the idea of an Italian wedding as romantic as I do?
