The Spencer Pratt-Heidi Montag wedding may have gotten all the attention, but over in Europe, Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault - who quietly married at City Hall in Paris on Valentine's Day - also walked down the aisle again Saturday.

The two wed on the second floor at the Teatro La Fenice, an opera house in Venice, Italy, where guests arrived by boat, with Venitian masks covering their faces.

Among the celeb attendees: Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, Ashley Judd, Antonio Banderas and wife Melanie Griffith, Woody Harrelson and Edward Norton.

Lilies, orchids and other blooms were delivered earlier in the day, so the wedding of Francois-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek had a strong floral scent.

A five-course reception banquet took place after the ceremony.

The weekend celebration began with a rehearsal dinner at historic Punta Della Dogana. Guests at the masked ball included former French president Jacques Chirac and wife Bernadette and Charlize Theron and her beau, Stuart Townsend.

Asked about her feelings for her Francois-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek, 42, told April's In Style, "He's the best." Truly moving praise if it ever existed.

Salma Hayek has been in the news for the following in recent months:

  • Uttering hilarious 30 Rock quotes
  • Carrying adorable new baby Valentina
  • Marrying baby daddy Francois-Henri Pinault

The latter, which took place in February, was apparently so much fun that the lovebirds will be saying "I Do" for the second time this weekend in Italy.

"They are being very hush hush about it," a source tells Us Weekly of the couple, who are proud parents to daughter Valentina, 19 months.

Another source says Salma Hayek, 42, and Francois-Henri Pinault, 46, the loaded chief executive of PPR - which owns Louis Vuitton and other luxury brands - are flying their close friends to Venice to celebrate for the entire weekend.

They first got engaged in March 2007, but split on July 18, 2008 - before tying the knot at City Hall in Paris' Sixth Arrondissement earlier this year.

Salma Hayek has married French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, Monday's online edition of the weekly French newsmagazine Le Point reports.

Hayek, 42, and Pinault, 46, were officially married on Saturday – St. Valentine's Day – in the City Hall of the Sixth Arrondissement in central Paris.

Interestingly, Hayek has been making hilarious 30 Rock quotes of late as the show's guest star - and last week's episode was "St. Valentine's Day."

There had been reports that the couple – whose daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault, was born in Los Angeles in September 2007 – was back on.

They had called off their engagement to be married in July 2008.

Francois Henri-Pinault gets props from his homies after marrying one of the world's most beautiful women, Salma Hayek, in his hometown of Paris, France.

Friends of the couple say that a Paris trip in September and another in November helped rekindle Salma Hayek's relationship with Francois-Henri Pinault.

Last week, Hayek told TV host Rachael Ray that when she kisses (30 Rock star) Alec Baldwin, "I keep telling Francois, 'I imagine I was kissing you.'"

Francois-Henri Pinault is CEO of the luxury giant PPR and the son of one of France's richest men, Francois Pinault, whose fortune was estimated at $16.9 billion.
