Actress Gwyneth Paltrow met TV writer, director, and producer Brad Falchuk during her guest appearance spot on Glee in 2010, but they didn’t officially start dating until 2014. In January of this year, the two announced their engagement and on September 29th the #Faltrows tied the knot on a gorgeous, crisp Fall Day in Amagansett. Thanks to Goop, we’ve got the scoop.

The revelry started the night before with a rehearsal dinner at friend Jerry Seinfeld’s lovely home and grounds, where wedding guests dined alfresco under a canopy of bistro lights.
Argentine chef Francis Mallmann commandeered the rehearsal dinner, flying 5,000 miles from Santiago, Chile, for the occasion, according to Goop. He set up an outdoor wooded fire pit to roast chicken, rib eye, lamb, various vegetables, as well as make his special twelve-hour grilled pineapple dish. Other items on the menu included wild salmon and a butternut squash-based vegetable dish.
Her first chance to actually plan a wedding, having eloped with previous husband Chris Martin whom she divorced in 2014, Gwyneth appeared to be thrilled about everything from the engagement party to the actual event. “I’m excited about everything! I’ve never had a wedding before. So even though I’m 45, I sort of feel like a 21-year-old,” she said.
The Big Day
And on September 29, seventy guests descended on Amagansett to bear witness and raise a glass to the nuptials of Goop Queen/Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her groom, TV writer, director, and producer Brad Falchuk.
The bride wore a custom Valentino Couture lace dress designed by Pierpaolo Piccioli featuring feminine cap sleeves and illusion neckline with an open-back to the ceremony.
Guests were first treated to a cocktail hour and string quartet before they were led to another tented area. Under the tent, designed by Blossoms Events, were two communal wooden tables candle-lit and set with pink rose floral arrangements, Mud Australia gold flatware, vintage cut crystal, and china plates in an Italian motif from Vista Alegre’s Ornament collection. Stunning flower arrangements were by New York Floral designers Putnam & Putnam.
The Dinner Reception
Dinner was a four-course menu prepared by Chef Mario Carbone (on their first date the two dined at one of his restaurants) for the guests who attended the wedding.
After dinner, Gwyneth then changed into a short Stella McCartney jumpsuit for the reception.
And in a smart twist of benevolence, the flowers were donated to local hospitals and medical centers through an organization called Repeat Roses.
Hours later, when the last guest went home and the last champagne flute was cleared away, the day ended as it began—with beauty, love, and two very happy people.
