Thomas Mars, frontman of Phoenix, recently married film director Sofia Coppola at a private ceremony at Palazzo Margherita, a villa in Bernalda, Italy owned by the Coppola family. The pair have two children together, Romy, five, and Cosima, one, and first met when Coppola was working on the soundtrack to her 1999 film The Virgin Suicides.

Coppola was previously married to fellow director Spike Jonze, but they divorced in 2003. Jonze went on to have a relationship with Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
