There was no shortage of special moments – or wardrobe changes – at John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's romantic Italian wedding.
The couple – who wrote their own vows – tied the knot in Lake Como on Saturday in front of 125 guests, including close family and friends like Kanye West, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder and Brooklyn Decker, a source tells PEOPLE.
Teigen, 27, who wore a strapless ivory Vera Wang gown for the wedding ceremony, changed into a second gown created by the designer for the reception, which featured delicious Italian cheese, prosciutto and cured meat appetizers, as well as truffle risotto, pasta and a beef dish for dinner.
Following dinner, Legend took to the piano for an emotional rendition of "All of Me." "Everyone was in tears. It was so beautiful," the source says.

For her last blast as an unmarried woman, Chrissy Teigen is favoring health and relaxation over wild partying.
The fiancée of John Legend will be saying farewell to her single status with a big girls' trip to Mexico.
"It's going to be hilarious," the model and Model Employee host told PEOPLE behind the scenes of her Skittles prank in New York City (see the video below). "I've never been to a bachelorette party! It's my first girls' trip, too!"

Chrissy Teigen's taste buds will be in for a treat when she ties the knot with John Legend this fall.
"He's such a romantic. He's so sweet," Teigen told PEOPLE about her husband-to-be at Surrender Nightclub's Summer of Swim party in Las Vegas on Friday. Even sweeter? What Teigen's plan for dessert.
"Food is really important to me," said the model and Model Employee host. "I'm not a big sweets person, which is why I'm really specific about the cake, which is going to be a really multi-layer cake. It's layers and layers of crepe and pastry creme in between with raspberry sauce."

Chrissy Teigen is getting into the wedding spirit. With a few months to go until her fall nuptials to John Legend, the host of VH1's Model Employee got in some practice, by serving as ring bearer in a mock wedding at Campari's Annual Bartender Bash in New York.
"I'm excited. I can't wait for the ceremony. [John] and I have been working and traveling so much that we just let our wedding planner do everything," Teigen told PEOPLE on Sunday night. "We're not neurotic about it. I just want to finally see all of my friends in one area."
She added, "We don't mean to be tight-lipped, but we have to save something."

John Legend is telling all about his wedding to model Chrissy Teigen – except the date.
"It's going to be good music, good food and a good time," he said at the Yahoo! On the Road tour, where he performed in N.Y.C. Friday night.
And although they may be leaving many of the details up to the planner, the singer, 34, who will release his album Love in the Future later this year, says he does have a wedding song in mind.
"There's a song on my album that actually could be pretty good for the wedding. It's called 'All of Me' and it's inspired by Chrissy. She loved the song and cried when she heard it," he said.

Viva Las Vegas!
Chrissy Teigen, 27, and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton, 20, were joined by a slew of fellow models who traveled from Newark, N.J., to Sin City recently, and the ladies gave PEOPLE.com a behind-the-scenes look at their trip-planning.
"I just thought I'd show you what's in my purse, because it's kind of fascinating, actually," Teigen said, while pulling out several bags of hair extensions. "I have multitudes of hair."
But as John Legend's fiancée points out, the "creme de la creme" of her handbag contents were yet to come.
