Meet #thefaltrows. This morning, Gwyneth Paltrow shared the first photo of her wedding to Brad Falchuk on Instagram. "Took me a minute to get it together," she wrote in a caption, "but at long last, for those who have requested, a little look inside the best day of our lives."

She directed fans to the Goop website, where a full 47 photos of the ceremony and celebrations are available to flip through. Now that we've finally had a peek at the details, here's everything we know about the wedding:

HER DRESS WAS DESIGNED BY VALENTINO'S PIERPAOLO PICCIOLI.

The A-line gown was covered in lace, and featured an open back—though during the ceremony, a full-length veil obscured that detail. Paltrow described it as "a dress that defies adjectives."

SHE CHANGED INTO STELLA MCCARTNEY FOR THE RECEPTION.

Following the service, Paltrow opted for something much easier to dance in: a caped white romper from designer Stella McCartney. (The dancing in question was reportedly to "80s party jams.")

Falchuk and his young groomsmen wore gray Tom Ford suits, and Gwyneth Paltrow's daughters wore white Monique Lhuillier gowns.

THE COUPLE CHOSE CHEF MARIO CARBONE TO CATER FOR A VERY SWEET REASON.

Paltrow and Falchuk's first date was at one of Carbone's restaurants, and they wanted to come "full circle" by having him cook for their wedding. Prime rib and savory vegetables were on the menu.


CAMERON DIAZ WAS THERE TO CELEBRATE WITH HER FRIEND.

Diaz casually appears in the background of one of the photos Paltrow shared. The two seem to have had their hair and makeup done together before the ceremony.

THE REHEARSAL DINNER WAS ALMOST AS ELABORATE AS THE ACTUAL WEDDING.

Argentine chef Francis Mallmann flew in from Chile to cook for the dinner. He used his trademark live-fire style, meaning whole chickens and pineapples sat above a huge fire pit for hours for the guests to observe.

THE FLOWERS DIDN'T GO TO WASTE.

The floral arrangements from the wedding were given to Repeat Roses, an organization that uses donated flowers to decorate hospitals and medical centers.

EVERYTHING WAS GOOP-WORTHY.

Paltrow credits an army of contributors, who concocted everything from custom cocktail napkins to calligraphy and floral design. And rather than the expected multi-tier cake, the couple served 45 personalized carrot cakes (Paltrow's selection) and 45 chocolate and vanilla cakes (Falchuk's choice). If you have the resources, why compromise?
