Happy first wedding anniversary Alicia and Swizz!

Exactly one year ago today, Alicia and Swizz exchanged vows in front of 60 close family members and friends at a private home on the French island of Corsica.  The intimate and romantic ceremony took place while Alicia was 6-months pregnant with their first child, Baby Egypt, whom they welcomed into the world in October.

In the beginning of their relationship, which started to bloom in late 2008, the two allowed their love to flourish in private. But today, Alicia lights up when asked about her hubby.

“Falling in love is such a force, but this is a whole other level of magic,” Alicia revealed in the June issue of ESSENCE.”With him I can be my true self and he can be his true self and we shine equally.”

And Swizz is equally smitten with Alicia. “My wife is a understanding, caring, and a great mom,” Swizz told ESSENCE. “She is my soul mate.”

Take a look at Alicia and Swizz’s love over the years. We wonder how the two are going to celebrate this special first?
