Olivia Palermo wasn't the only one getting married this past weekend. Anna Wintour's son, Charles Shaffer, wed Elizabeth Cordry on Saturday and Wintour pulled out all the stops for the event. Since the couple isn't exactly well-connected in the fashion industry, Wintour stepped in to call on Oscar de la Renta for the bride's gown while the groom wore Burberry. The bridesmaids wore varying shades of Prada and the flower girls were outfitted in Alexander McQueen topped off with flower crowns that were so adorable that even Courtney Love, known flower crown-hater, would have made an exception.

Wintour, dressed in Chanel for the occasion, let the couple borrow her Mastic, NY estate for the nuptials, which was just begging for #thismasticmoment and #masticinlove Instagram hashtags. There was even a themed t-shirt for the weekend. (Wintour! She's just like us!) We scoured the instas to bring you the best photos (read: all the photos) from the wedding so you can awww your own way through the classic country affair.
