Sofia Coppola’s Wedding

Director Sofia Coppola enjoyed a picture perfect wedding on August 27, 2011 with her long-time love, Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars.

Making the event a family affair, the bride was escorted by her famous father Francis Ford Coppola, who walked by her side past 80 guests (including director George Lucas) who had gathered in the garden of Palazzo Margherita, a 19th century edifice situated in Bernalda, Italy– the hometown to an earlier generation of Coppolas.

Taking a cue from the floral finery which provided a romantic backdrop for the happy couple, the bride– who had announced her betrothal in May 2011– chose a lavender-hued dress created by Azzedine Alaia for her walk down the aisle.

According to US magazine, following the nuptials the newlyweds joined family and friends at a reception which included a vanilla wedding cake concocted by the chef at Magna Grecia hotel in Bernalda.
