Former Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih has finally tied the knot in Lebanon to music producer Wassim Salibi.

Rima famously changed her religion - converting from a Muslim Shia in April 2016 - to walk down the aisle to her Christian hubby.

Her conversion caused much controversy amongst strict Muslims, who condemned her decision to abandon her religion and branded her an "apostate."

But let's focus on Rima's big day and how absolutely stunning she looked in a dreamy dress by none other than the King of Lebanese Fashion Elie Saab.

Also, how adorable did Wassim look during his and Rima's traditional Lebanese zaffeh?

Rima and Wassim's wedding bash was a star-studded one, with the likes of Lebanese superstar Haifa Wehbe, Jordanian director Tarik Freitekh, Lebanese singer Wael Kfoury, Canadian singer The Weeknd, French-Moroccan rapper French Montana and more celebrities joining the happy couple on their big day.

In case you're wondering why The Weeknd was among the invitees, he just happens to be managed by Wassim and has become a good friend of his over the years.
 
Rima and Wassim stepped out for their first dance as hubby and wife to a live performance by the "Can't Feel My Face" singer, who later performed a collection of his biggest hits, much to the excitement of their guests.
 
But of course, the newlyweds couldn't have Kfoury in the house without a surprise performance from the King of Romance.

The lucky invitees took to social media to share snapshots from the glamorous wedding, which they captioned under the hashtag #RimaAndSal. 
 
Good friends Wehbe and Freitekh were reunited at the wedding. Freitekh directed the diva's unique music video "Breathing You In" in 2015.
 
 
Although our invite clearly got lost in the mail, we've got to be honest and admit that Freitekh looked especially dapper in his white tux.
 
 
French Montata wasn't too shabby either.

Now the question remains: Where are Rima and Sal heading for their honeymoon?
