Gwyneth Paltrow wed TV Producer Brad Falchuk on September 29th at their home in Amagansett–and she just released all the stunning details of their wedding day décor, flowers, fashion, and style, including photos of her gorgeous Valentino wedding gown.
Gwyneth's traditional ceremony gown, created in collaboration with Pierpaolo Piccoli of Valentino, spoke to her desire for a classically bridal moment, complete with loads of lace, a fuller skirt, and a simple tulle veil. The gown featured layered lace appliqué over a swiss dot base with a nude lining, along with an illusion neckline and lace cap sleeves. Known to show off her enviable figure, Gwyneth capped off the loop with an open keyhole back for a hint of sexiness.
Though she has been known to take risks when dressing for the red carpet, Gwyneth kept both the silhouette of her gown and her bridal beauty natural and simplistic. She worked with Gucci Westman and Orlando Pita on her day-of look, opting to wear her hair down and keep her makeup fresh and dewy.
The weekend began on Thursday evening, celebrating Gwyneth's 46th birthday. The following night, a rehearsal dinner at the home of Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld hosted guests who all "dined alfresco under a canopy of bistro lights" on open-fire cuisine by acclaimed South American chef Francis Mallmann. The following day, the couple's 70 guests joined them for a backyard ceremony and dinner, with food prepared by chef Mario Carbone. The couple had their first dates at one of Carbone's famed restaurants, and so it was natural that they'd turn to him to create their wedding day feast.
As for the style of the evening? Gwyneth and Brad opted for a laidback ambiance, complete with luxe details–Vista Allegre china, cut crystal stemware, Putnam & Putnam florals and installations, and a De Gournay wallpaper backed bar were only some of the many thoughtful design moments in the dinner tent. The couple turned to BAZAAR top photographer John Dolan to capture the many special moments of their weekend.
Notes GOOP, the after party was '80s themed, and Gwyneth had a quick change into a caped romper by Stella McCartney for the dance floor. Among the 70 guests were Cameron Diaz, Robert Downey Jr., Rob Lowe, Jessica & Jerry Seinfeld, and many of Gwyneth and Brad’s childhood friends. Robert Downey Jr. also gave a toast to the newlyweds at the wedding dinner.
After their Hamptons nuptials, the couple headed to Paris and Umbria for a mini-moon, before heading to London for the opening of GOOP's first store in Notting Hill–and a second wedding celebration in the city, with friends Stella McCartney, Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti, Liv Tyler, Demi Moore and Elizabeth Saltzman, among others.
