What Donald Trump wants, Donald Trump gets—and even Mother Nature complies. His daughter Ivanka's Oct. 25 sunny wedding day "was probably the most beautiful day of the year," he says. Even more ravishing than the fall weather? The glowing bride, who wore a Vera Wang gown to marry publisher and real estate mogul Jared Kushner. Says her father: "It was really just a great time."

The bride, 28—who costars on The Celebrity Apprentice—exchanged vows with Kushner, 28, in a Jewish ceremony before 500 guests, including Natalie Portman and Regis Philbin. "They're a smart, beautiful couple," says Trump. "You'll hear great things from them in the years to come."
