While everyone else was busy shopping (or recuperating from multiple turkey meals), designer Mary-Kate Olsen and French banker Olivier Sarkozy tied the knot last Friday over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Us Weekly reports that the intimate outdoor garden ceremony included about 50 guests, including Olsen and Sarkozy's parents, at a private residence in New York City, which was followed by a reception dinner inside. (According to Page Six, there were "bowls and bowls of cigarettes" at the ready but let's take that party detail with a grain of salt, shall we?) Considering the couple's penchant for privacy, we're not surprised that the wedding's details are slim.
Here's what we do know: Olsen and Sarkozy started dating in 2012 and were engaged in February 2014. Since then, Olsen has been wearing a vintage gold, 4-carat diamond and sapphire ring by Cartier that reportedly cost $81,000. (A reasonable purchase for the co-owner of a brand that sells $34,000 leather backpacks.)
As for the wedding dress, the chances of Olsen designing her own are likely. Along with her sister Ashley Olsen, Mary-Kate designed a lace gown with bell sleeves for a close friend's ceremony under their high-end label The Row in June 2014. In an interview with WWD last May, the bride-to-be spoke briefly about her wedding dress plans, saying that it "may be a matter of getting five or six or making two or three and being stressed out." Would these multiple designs showcase Olsen's love for all things vintage? We may never know. Or in the case of Blake Lively's super secret wedding day, we'll find out nearly two years later.
So please, Mary-Kate, give us something — anything — before we all deep-dive into holiday gift guides for the next month. We just want a tiny glimpse of the sartorial vision for your modern-day nuptials. And, with a lucky strike of surprisingly high temperatures this past week, we sure as hell hope you weren't cold on your special day.
