Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson has offered an insight into superproducer Timbaland's wedding to his longterm girlfriend last weekend (end22Jun08) - stating the ceremony was "beautiful".
Hilson was one of the lucky guests to be invited to the lavish ceremony in Aruba on Sunday (22Jun08), where the acclaimed beatmaker married publicist Monique Idlett - his girlfriend of two years.
The south Caribbean nuptials were the couple's second marriage. The pair reportedly exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony in the music maestro's native Virginia earlier this month (10Jun08).
And Hilson says it was worth having a second wedding, as the ceremony was such an outlandish affair.
She tells, "It was a show, it was a huge deal. Private island, fireworks - the whole nine yards. But it was beautiful, very beautiful."
But she adds it wasn't all for show: "It was very, very heartfelt, very sincere. It wasn't just a show to be a show, like a big to-do just to be a big to-do - it was really nice."
Timbaland and Idlett have a seven month old daughter, Reign, together. They became engaged last October (07).
