December 13, 2010 : American singer and actor Joel Madden and his four year long girlfriend television personality Nicole Richie have finally exchanged their wedding vows after having two kids Harlow and Sparrow.
The wedding ceremony was organized on December 11 at the Beverly Hills estate of Richie’s dad singer Lionel Richie. They took the wedding vows in presence of about 150 close friends and family.
Richie looked stunning in a wedding dress by Marchesa. Jeweler Neil Lane designed their wedding rings. The 29-year-old fashion designer got engaged to the 31-year-old Madden in February. Neil Lane made their four-carat engagement ring.
Since the beginning of their relationship in 2006, everyone was predicting that they will end up tying the knot. The winter-themed celebration was attended by celebrity guests like Khloe Kardashian and Samantha Ronson. Apart from the celebrity guests, a huge elephant was also seen at the event.
Richie’s good friend Masha Gordon stood with her as maid of honor and the couple’s two-year-old daughter Harlow was the flower girl.
A source revealed that the celebration was more about having a party rather than about Joel and Nicole getting married.
Lionel Richie was very excited and said that he is extremely happy for the couple and is happier because of the two beautiful grandchildren, they gave him.
Paris Hilton was not invited for the wedding but friends Samantha Ronson and Christina Aguilera were on the guest list for the event. We wish the couple a very happy conjugal life ahead!
