The heart-shaped strapless sheath dress featured silk tulle and was hand-embroidered with baroque arabesques adorned with 3-D motifs on the bodice. To show off her curves, the dress was nipped at the waist with a pearl-beaded belt. Sofia added a detachable full skirt to add drama to the look.
It took 32 people, 350 crystals, 11 pounds of sequins, nearly seven pounds of pearls and 1,657 hours to bring the gown to life.
"Your wedding is not the time to try new things -- you're going to have these pictures forever," Sofia told Martha Stewart Weddings leading up to her big day. "My body looks better when I have fitted dresses with more support. I’m 43, so I can’t really be looking for something too crazy. I have to go with what looks good on me."
The stunning bride topped it all off with a luxurious bouquet of orchids.
Sofia and Joe exchanged “I do’s” in front of nearly 400 people, including several of their celebrity friends -- Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, Ann Paquin and Stephen Moyer, Harvey Weinstein and wife Georgina Chapman, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ty Burell, Julie Bowen, Ed O'Neill, Ariel Winter, Sarah Hyland, Arnold Schwarzenegger and more.
