After four years of dating and two kids, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have finally tied the knot. Large white tents graced the grounds at Lionel Richie’s mansion, and a large white elephant was spotted being led onto the estate. Nicole and Joel said “I do” in a ceremony on Saturday night in a super intimate affair, with only 130 close friends and family members being invited. Nicole reportedly wore a $20,000 custom-made Marchesa gown and Rev. Run married them!
“Joel and Nicole have looked up to Rev. Run, so they wanted him to officiate,” a guest of the wedding tells UsMagazine.com exclusively. Explains the guest: “They both appreciate his family values and he is an inspiration for both. They both also respect his faith, too.”
The couples two children, Harlow and Sparrow, are said to have been the flower girl and page boy. Joel’s twin brother Benji Madden was the best man with Samantha Ronson taking on bridesmaid duties, and friends including Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale, and Kris Jenner were also in attendance. Nicole’s godfather Quincy Jones arrived just moments before she walked down the aisle. Former bff Paris Hilton was noticeably absent. The wedding was designed to reflect an “Old Hollywood” type of ambience, and it was reported that the theme was well played out and elegant as well as personal. Reportedly, Neil Lane, who designed Richie’s 4-carat engagement ring, designed the coupe’s rings, too.
