“It’s just like everything I could have dreamed of and more,” Getty, the daughter of musician John Gilbert Getty, who died last November told the outlet. “So it’s wild when something so magical comes true because you’ve thought about it but didn’t actually think it would. Miracles happen.”Jose Villa Ivy Love Getty, Tobias Alexander Engel and wedding party

Taylor-Joy, 25, shared a loving tribute of her own on social media, calling her pal the “most beautiful bride.”

“My baby girl got married yesterday. Being by your side all these years and your maid of honour has been nothing short of a privilege and your existence, nothing short of a miracle,” she wrote on Monday alongside a series of snaps from the pre-wedding festivities.Ivy Love Getty and Tobias Alexander Engel

“I am so PROUD of the woman you’ve become. If you’re ever in any doubt- I have loved you and will love you, forever,” Taylor-Joy added. “CONGRATULATIONS LIL SPICE MONKEY! You truly were the most beautiful bride 💋♥️👯‍♀️.”

“I love you so much Ans. Always and forever,” Getty replied in an affectionate comment. “You were the best maid of honor I could have ever imagined and we had SO much fun. Unforgettable and an incredible weekend full of love and magic.” The festivities kicked off Thursday night with a 1960s-inspired bash at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, which was reimagined as a nightclub for the occasion, according to Vogue. 

All guests were required to show their vaccination cards at the door before enjoying a night with plenty of entertainment, including a DJ set by Mark Ronson and a performance by Earth Wind & Fire, per the outlet. To top things off, the bride even rocked three different vintage looks throughout the course of the evening.

When it came time to walk down the aisle, the bride wear a custom John Galliano dress made of glass shards and all of her bridesmaids wore gowns by the designer as well.  “Ivy looked incredible in all those mirror shards that tinkled as she walked up the step,” Hamish Bowles, guest and contributing editor for Vogue, told the outlet.  

Bowles also told the outlet that California Gov. Gavin Newsome, a friend of the family, was in attendance. The couple incorporated their rescue dog Blue into the ceremony by entrusting the pup with keeping their rings safe, according to the outlet. 

After the duo said “I do,” Queue Myra launched into a rendition of her hit song “Miracles Happen,” which is featured in The Princess Diaries, per Vogue. Afterwards, the entire group headed back to the Getty mansion for the reception.

Making sure her loved ones would be able to safely attend her wedding was extra important to Getty, whose father and grandmother Ann died last year. “When my beloved grandmother passed away, I knew I wanted to have the wedding in my house to honor her,” Getty told Vogue. 

“My grandmother interior designed each room of the house which allows me to feel as if she is there with me. I would be able to look around the room and see something that reminds me of her.” The custom veil the bride wore on her day also featuring walnuts that represented her grandmother who “grew up on a walnut farm” and guitars to honor her father.

Reflecting on her special day on social media, Getty wrote that she felt like her “grandma and father were by my side gagging with joy as much as I was.” “It was so special and I could not be more grateful for those who made it happen,” she added.
