Despite predictions from Angelina Jolie that George Clooney and his fiancé, Amal Alamuddin, would beat them to the aisle, the stunning actress and her new husband, Brad Pitt, were actually the first to say "I do."

And Clooney couldn't be happier for his friend and reported best man and his new wife.

The Oscar-winning actor told E! News of the ridiculously good-looking couple's weekend wedding, "How great is that?! I'm really happy for Brad and Angie and their whole family."

In a May 2014 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jolie was asked which couple would marry first, to which the mother of six responded, "Probably George!"

With few details coming from the wedding that transpired in France on Aug. 23, it's unknown if Clooney and Alamuddin attended the intimate nuptials.

As for Clooney and his bride-to-be, they continue to prepare for their wedding, which some reports say will likely take place at Clooney's Italian villa at Lake Como, Italy within the month. It's been several months since the couple first obtained their marriage license in London. However, since they plan to marry in Italy as noted on their marriage license, there are a few additional requirements from that country they need to take care of, like getting documents legalized and translated.

A source told E! News earlier this month it should only take a matter of days to complete the clerical requirements.

Soon it will be Clooney's turn to say "I do" at his beloved Lake Como holiday home.

“George has always loved Como, he finds it very peaceful and relaxing and now Amal has fallen in love with the area as well,” a source told E! News about Clooney's reported choice to marry at his Italian getaway, Villa Oleandra, in Laglio. “They want to start their married life there with the beautiful lake as a backdrop. George’s home on the lake is like a very well oiled machine. He has the local mayor fully on his side and the locals too and he can ensure that press and paparazzi are kept away.”
