Gwyneth Paltrow may have tied the knot back in September, and more than a month later, her wedding photos have finally been released.

And boy, was it worth the wait!

On September 29, Paltrow and producer Brad Falchuk wed in an elegant ceremony with 75 guests in attendance, a stark contrast to the lifestyle guru's elopement to her first husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

"It's different to be in your mid-forties; do it again and bring all your experience, your pain, your happiness, suffering "” everything. It's actually very heartening, I feel very optimistic!" she told Glamour magazine before the wedding took place.

The Pictures

During the ceremony at her Hamptons home, Paltrow wore a gorgeous custom Valentino gown, which featured lace appliqués on top of a nude lining, cap sleeves, and a keyhole cutout back. She finished the look with a simple veil over her naturally wavy hair.

The Oscar-winning actress gave her fans a first glimpse of the ceremony on her website GOOP, before she posted the picture on her Instagram page.

"Took me a minute to get it together, but at long last, for those who have requested, a little look inside the best day of our lives," she captioned the photo.

Valentio also posted behind-the-scene pictures leading up to the couple's walk down the aisle.

One snapshot featured Paltrow's assistants putting the finishing touches on her polished look, while her daughter Apple and stepdaughter Isabella, both 14, look on in their own white bridesmaid dresses.

But Paltrow's superb fashion choices weren't the only highlight of the day.

"It was just a beautiful, family oriented, immaculate, loving, fun."

Several A-list celebrities attended the nuptials, including Cameron Diaz, Steven Spielberg, Robert Downey Jr., and Jerry Seinfeld, who were treated to a four course meal by chef Mario Carbone.

Downey Jr., who's Paltrow's Iron Man costar, is said to have given a speech, and Seinfield hosted the rehearsal dinner at his estate the night before.

Rob Lowe was also present on the big day, and couldn't help but gush about the ceremony in October.

"My wife and I have known Gwyneth since she was 17 years old, Blythe and her dad," Lowe told Extra.

"It's sort of really family. It was just a beautiful, family oriented, immaculate, loving, fun. I love weddings, I love weddings, and you gotta figure Gwyneth knows how to do something like that."

Following their wedding, the couple went on a "mini-moon" to Umbria, Italy and Paris, France before Paltrow made her way to London for the opening of Goop's first international store.

Paltrow first met Falchuk in 2010 when she guest-starred on GLEE, a show that he co-created and produced.

The couple announced their engagement in Goop Magazine"˜s Sex & Love, where Paltrow addressed Falchuk as the "man I was meant to be with."
