Is there yet the term “Fairy Tale Chic”? Well, after fashion heiress Margherita Missoni’s and Gran Turismo driver Eugenio Amos’ pastoral and utterly charming weekend wedding, there surely is now.
A sprawling farm and sunny day in Brunello, Italy provided the rustic backdrop for this ultracool-meets-old-world celebration, where the bride wore a breathtaking, off the shoulder, ethereal dress that she designed under the guidance of Giambattista Valli using Missoni silk, prints and embroideries.
Margherita accessorized her bridal gown simply with an unadorned silver tiara, a long veil and adorable flat gladiator sandals, while her bridesmaids wore variations of long, flowy dresses or gypsy-style skirts with floral prints, crop tops and headdresses made of daisies.
The wedding cake was shaped in the form of a huge heart and topped with hundreds of wild berries.
To further set the magical mood, guests were surrounded by illuminated bales of hay and ornately painted gypsy caravans housing fortune tellers, as they were rightly entertained by an acoustic band and traveling acrobats. The picnic seating was equally romantic as family and friends sat around low-set Moroccan-style tables, which were surrounded by billowy cushions in an array of Missoni’s signature zigzag patterns, all set atop colorfully patterned rugs.
Later in the evening, the newly minted Mrs. Missoni-Amos changed into a blush pink version of her wedding dress for the reception and switched out her silver tiara for a flowery headpiece.
Best. Wedding. Ever.
