Nicole Richie wore three dresses on her wedding day.
The fashion designer-and-TV star donned a trio of gowns by Marchesa when she married Joel Madden, in a ceremony attended by her godfather Quincy Jones as well as Gwen Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale and Khloe Kardashian – as well as an elephant named Thai.
Nicole – who has two children with Joel, Harlow, two, and 15-month-old Sparrow – changed into different gowns for the ceremony, dinner and after-dinner party.
The couple’s nuptials were winter-themed and took place at father-of-the-bride Lionel Richie’s Beverly Hills estate and were officiated by run-DMC rapper and practicing minister Reverend Run.
A source told Us Weekly magazine: “Joel and Nicole have looked up to Rev. Run, so they wanted him to officiate. They both appreciate his family values and he is an inspiration for both. They both also respect his faith, too.”
Celebrity no-shows included Christina Aguilera, who was reportedly supposed to be singing at the ceremony, and Kim Kardashian. The most noticeable person missing from the guest list, however, was Paris Hilton, Nicole’s on/off best friend.
Yet those who did make it got to enjoy the sight of one hundred red roses and a menu including filet mignon and seared ahi tuna.
