There was lots of love that went around at the ceremony in Rhinebeck, N.Y. The couple, according to a guest, “are not two people who usually stand around grinning. But the whole weekend they radiated joy and happiness.”

As for the food, the cake was a four-foot, nine-tier masterpiece of vanilla sponge cake, layered with dark chocolate mousse. It was gluten free, and the chefs Maarten and Frances Steenman, owners of La Tulipe Desserts, gave PEOPLE an exclusive look of their creation.
