Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt made headlines when they finally tied the knot last week, but fans of the duo had more to say this week when pictures of Jolie’s dress were revealed.

Jolie’s satin gown and veil were made by Liugi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace, and designed by Donatella Versace herself. Both the dress and the veil featured drawings from each of the couple’s six kids, and were hand-sewn by Massi.

“Luigi is like family to me and I couldn't imagine anyone else making this dress,” Jolie told People magazine. “He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.”

The dress received rave reviews on social media, though naturally, there were naysayers:

People reports that Pitt wore a suit from his closet, but borrowed a tie from his son because he forgot to pack one.

As for the couple’s clan, Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, and Knox wore black suits, while Vivienne wore a white dress from her closet and Zahara wore a dress designed by family friend Adama Kebe.

“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” the couple told People. “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”

Cheers to the happy couple.
