Fashion heiress Margherita Missoni wed racecar driver Eugenio Amos last weekend in a romantic church ceremony in the small town of Brunello, Italy. The couple announced their engagement last November, stating from the get-go that their wedding would be a private affair with no press coverage. But that didn't stop enthusiastic guests from sharing the below images of the colorful, rustic affair. (The above photo of the adorable newlyweds is courtesy of Vogue España.)

The concept for Margherita's silk and organza off-the-shoulder gown was born 15 years ago when she cut a picture of a similarly designed dress from a magazine, according to Vogue Italia. The dress—created together with her mother Angela Missoni and under the "couture" supervision of friend Giambattista Valli—includes subtle nods to her family's famous fashion house in its patterns and embroidery, and features whimsical, voluminous sleeves accented by large floral appliques. (Original reports told that the gown was designed exclusively by Valli, a rumor the bride took to Twitter to squash: "The dress was made by the women who saw me growing up, following my precise directions and with Giamba's 'couture counseling,'" she wrote.)

The bride accessorized her ethereal gown with flat, silver gladiator sandals, and adorned her intricate braided updo with a modern silver tiara. Her new husband looked pretty spiffy himself, wearing a pair of plaid pants, a waistcoat, and coattails.

Later in the celebration, Margherita changed into a blush pink version of the custom gown, let her hair down, and donned a floral wreath and bold red lips.

Margherita's three bridesmaids (two pictured above) each wore different pink-hued, floor-length dresses in bold prints and daisy chain hair wreaths.

The outdoor wedding breakfast, held on the century-old park of Angela Missoni's home, was served Moroccan-style on low tables surrounded by large Missoni-print cushions. The decor was dominated by hearts, daisies, and a barrage of bold colors that touched everything from the tablecloths, to the glassware, to the mismatched china. The scene was only made more rustic-romantic by the illuminated hay bales and Romany-painted caravans brought in for the celebration, reported wedding guest Suzy Menkes for The International Herald Tribune. Entertainment for the elite fashion crowd (including photographer Mario Testino, music producer Marc Ronson, stylist Carine Roitfeld, and Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani) was provided by a gypsy band, traveling acrobats, as well as a fortuneteller.

Instead of the traditional tiered wedding cake, the couple sliced two, large heart-shaped cakes topped with berries. Smaller versions of the pastries were also on hand.
