Anna Wintour’s son ties the knot: Instagram diary of the star-studded wedding
Anna Wintour certainly knows how to pull off a wedding.
The style icon and editor-in-chief hosted her son Charlie Shaffer’s nuptials to his bride Elizabeth Cordry at Anna’s Mastic, Long Island estate over the weekend.
The high-profile guests – who included photographer Mario Testino, designers Prabal Gurung and Oscar de la Renta, and Vogue West Coast editor Lisa Love – were encouraged to document the joyous occasion on social media by using the hashtag “#masticinlove”.

Friends and family were also given hand printed T-shirts with the phrase emblazoned across the chest and “Summer 2014” written on the back.
While Anna is reported to have worn Chanel on her son’s big day, the bride Elizabeth stunned in a bespoke Oscar de la Renta creation. The gown featured a demure neckline, embroidered floral lace overlay and was matched with a full-length veil.

Anna made sure that the much-sought-after designer was available to attend the beautiful outdoor ceremony, as well as make sure that Elizabeth looked picture-perfect just before walking down the aisle.
The 27-year-old bride, who met her husband while studying with him at Oxford University, pinned her blonde hair back into a tight bun and kept her bridal look clean and simple with classic pearl studs.
