The couple, along with their daughters, were spotted in the Italian town earlier this week, ahead of their wedding on Saturday.

Her gown? A beautiful lavender number designed just for her by Azzedine Alaïa. Simple, yet elegant. Her husband wore a dark blue suit and looked quite handsome! Leonardo Chiruzzi, the mayor of Bernalda, was the officiant and told the Associated Press, “Everything went well. It was simple, calm, in the garden.” The Palazzo Margherita was the setting for their ceremony, the historic property turned into a luxurious family villa owned by her father, famed director Francis Ford Coppola. He, of course, walked his only daughter down the aisle. Following the ceremony, a reception was held in their honor where the menu included roast pork, fish, pasta and served with wine made from the family’s farm. A vanilla cake decorated with white flowers finished off guests’ palates.

Other guests that were on hand to celebrate the couple’s marriage were Sofia’s aunt, Talia Shire, and Johnny Depp. It’s unclear if some of her famous cousins, including Nicolas Cage or Jason Schwartzman, were in attendance.

Coppola was previous married to director Spike Jones from 1999 to 2003. They divorced and the ever popular ‘irreconcilable differences’ was cited in divorce papers as the reason behind their marriage’s demise. Thomas, lead vocalist for the French rock band, Mars, met Coppola while working on the soundtrack for her film, The Virgin Suicides. Coppola and Thomas’ first child, Romy, was born on November 28, 2006 in Paris. Three and a half years later, Romy’s little sister Cosima came into the world in May of 2010, born in NYC.

Congratulations to Sofia and Thomas! May you have a lifetime of love, happiness and health!
