This morning's royal wedding was every bit the fairy tale we had hoped it would be.

Kate Middleton -- now known as Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge -- took our breath away in her stunning ivory gown designed by Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton. Prince William looked so regal and dapper in his red uniform jacket. And, of course, the flower girls and page boys had us oohing, aahing and grinning from ear to ear.

In one memorable photograph, young Grace Van Custem, 3, the great-great-great-granddaughter of William Waldorf Astor and Prince William's god-daughter, covers her adorable ears as the crowd roars its approval at a kiss between the newly married couple.

The girls wore custom, handmade Nicki Macfarlane gowns, which, People reports, were made using the same fabric as the wedding gown and were embroidered with the girls' names and wedding date.

Equally cute were the page boys, clad in red uniforms with insignia from the Irish Guards, whose Colonel is Prince William, according to the magazine.

Two words: Royal. Cuteness.
