Tory Burch has tied the knot! The American fashion designer and society fixture reportedly married Pierre-Yves Roussel, special advisor to the LVMH group, in Antigua on Saturday, December 1.

The ultra-secret ceremony took place at the restored estate of the late Bunny Mellon, which Burch owns. Mellon was a confidante of Jackie Kennedy and said to be the one woman Jackie wanted to impress.

While a spokeswoman for the designer told the New York Post that the wedding would be a private and intimate event with no press coverage, various notable guests subtly Instagrammed the occasion. Attendees included celebrity makeup artist Gucci Westman, designer Tabitha Simmons, fashion entrepreneur Lauren Santo Domingo, Jessica Seinfeld, Wendi Deng Murdoch, Fabiola Beracasa Beckman, French gallerist Victoire de Pourtales, Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, model Jessica Hart, and Derek Blasberg.

The bride was previously married to venture capitalist Chris Burch, with whom she shares three sons, and has dated dated Lance Armstrong and Lyor Cohen. Roussel also has three children from his first marriage.

Clearly the Burch-Roussel nuptials were a fashionable affair, the start of what will no doubt be a very chic marriage.
