Hopefully the fourth time will be a charm for Lily van der Woodsen. The Upper East Side mother of two (Kelly Rutherford) and Bart Bass (Robert John Burke) tied the knot on last night's season finale of Gossip Girl in a classic white-themed wedding. We'll have to wait until season 2 to find out what's next for the happy couple, but if you're dying to know more about the celebration, you're in luck. As gossip girl herself would say, we've got all the details.
The consummate classic, Lily wore an ivory silk faille strapless Vera Wang gown with a folded bodice and sarong draped skirt. The bride carried a delightfully apropos bouquet of lilies of the valley and stephanotis.
Maid of honor Serena (Blake Lively) showed off her inimitable style in a vintage-inspired pale yellow Ralph Lauren gown with cascades of hand-sewn ruffles.
At the ceremony, held at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York City florist Doro's Annex ornamented each chair with gardenias, dendrobium orchids and smilax. The reception was held in the Madison Room of the Palace Hotel where the tables were decorated with the graceful white centerpieces of phalaenopsis orchids and peonies.
Cake master Sylvia Weinstock created a five-tier yellow cake with lemon and raspberry cream covered in buttercream icing for the affair. The cake was adorned with a spiral, floral cascade of orchids and lilies in honor of the bride's name. The cake also featured sugar draping that mimicked that of the bride's dress.
