On May 30, 2015, Joseph Getty, the 26-year-old heir to the Getty Images empire, tied the knot with globetrotting jewelry designer Sabine Ghanem at the Basilica of the Twelve Apostles in the Italian capital of Rome.

The whirlwind weekend kicked off with a decadent Dangerous Liaisons-themed pre-wedding party, with the bride channeling Marie Antoinette à la Glenn Close. The event was the toast of Roman society, and brought designers, models, artists, editors, and VIPs out in droves. On the day of the wedding, Ghanem stunned in an Elsa Schiaparelli Couture look that featured golden sunbursts on the front and back, one-of-a-kind Charlotte Olympia heels, and a custom Olympia Le-Tan clutch, while her bridesmaids wore gorgeous bespoke Mary Katrantzou dresses. The bride’s fashionable circle of guests included Daphne Guinness, Princess Beatrice, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Noor Fares, and Pierre Casiraghi of Monaco.

Although the Ghanem/Getty union has captured international headlines, no one in the industry raised an eyebrow at the proceedings. The decadent display was to be expected, and the wedding of Ghanem and Getty was certainly one for the ages — a stunning display of good taste and avant-garde fashion that unfolded in front of a global audience.
