The Dress, The Cake And More Details From Sofia Coppola's Wedding

  |   By Jen O'Brien

Francis Ford Coppola's daughter's recent marriage to French rocker Thomas Mars was a lesson in understated elegance. The couple tied the knot this weekend at Palazzo Margherita, the Coppola family's villa in the southern Italian town of Bernalda. Bernalda's mayor, Leonardo Chiruzzi, officiated the ceremony.

Rumours about who would design Sofia's gown swirled before the ceremony and we were stunned by her unexpected, yet lovely, choice. The bride chose a custom-made sheer lavender gown by Azzedine Alaïa.

The 70 wedding guests dined on traditional southern Italian fare (grilled fish, roast pork, ham and figs, pasta with tomato and basil, salads, courgettes and fresh cheeses) while enjoying wines from the Coppola family's vineyard. Dinner was followed with a simple low-lying vanilla cake with chantilly cream, decorated with white flowers and prepared by the chef at the Magna Grecia hotel.

Coppola and Mars, who first revealed their engagement in May, have two daughters: Romy, 4½, and Cosima, 15 months.
