Drew Barrymore once wore Cinderella's slippers for her film "Ever After," but her wedding on Saturday to art dealer Will Kopelman was her own sort of fairytale.

The intimate affair in Montecito was more of a backyard shindig than a billionaire social event, according to the bride.

"The day was perfect," a pregnant Barrymore told People. "Everyone we love and care about was there. It was as fun and meaningful as we ever could have hoped."

Guests, including Cameron Diaz, Jimmy Fallon and Reese Witherspoon, were surrounded by accents including pink lace and green garland, conspiring to create a "vintage romantic" theme, wedding planner Yifat Oren said.

Barrymore "just wanted a backyard wedding," he told the mag.

With Kopelman's father, Ari, the former chief executive of design house Chanel, the bride wore a gown from the label -- a dress that came with a pretty significant stamp of approval.

Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel's head designer and creative director, called Barrymore's bridal look "perfect."

“I think she looked beautiful and it fit her strong personality," Lagerfeld told InStyle magazine.
