And many more to come! George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin were surrounded by flashing lights on taxi boats during their wedding weekend in Venice, Italy, a year ago, but the couple opted for a more low-key affair to ring in their first anniversary. An onlooker tells Us Weekly that the couple dined at Sunset Tower Hotel’s Tower Bar in West Hollywood on Sunday, Sept. 27.

Clooney, 54, and the British lawyer arrived to celebrate at 10 p.m. "It was a lovely, quiet romantic meal, just the two of them," a second eyewitness tells Us. "They stayed a few hours." 

The eyewitness adds: "They celebrated with champagne and both of them were all dressed up for the occasion. She had on a fancy dress and gorgeous jewelry."

The Money Monster actor and Alamuddin, 37, said "I do" at the lavish Aman Canal Grande hotel on Sept. 27, 2014. Some star-studded pals in attendance included John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber. (Clooney and BFF Gerber co-own CASAMIGOS Tequila.)

Earlier this month, Gerber opened up about Clooney finally settling down after being a bachelor for years. "It wasn't timing; it was meeting the right person," Gerber, 53, told The Times. "[She's] a great addition to the family."
