Inside Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas’ wedding

The ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star, 50, and businessman, 48, tied the knot in an extravagant ceremony and reception on Saturday in front of family, friends and loved ones. co-stars.

The festivities took place in East Brunswick, NJ, on the sprawling 15-acre grounds of Park Chateau Estate & Gardens. The picturesque location is home to a lavish mansion and adjoining chapel, with an all-around white facade inspired by the Romantic style and ornate with 17th-century French Gothic architecture.

Giant scalloped hearts of white roses could also be seen rising across the Versailles landscape, some apparently mounted during last-minute preparations for the celebration.

Also spotted: a group of attendants wearing black cloth and white umbrellas, presumably protecting the bride from an untimely reveal as she walked across the lawn.

Giudice’s four daughters, Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12, served as bridesmaids, as did her « RHONJ » castmates Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin.

Several women from various « Real Housewives » spin-offs also attended, including Dorinda Medley from « New York City », Alexia Echevarria from « Miami » and Chanel Ayan from « Dubai ». Comedian Loni Love was also spotted among the guests.

The ceremony took place in the gardens around dusk, ending just as a beautiful sunset began to cast a soft pink haze over the wondrous scene. The bride wore a fitted strapless dress with a mermaid silhouette, accessorizing it with a wide veil embroidered with huge intertwined hearts and the words « semper insieme » – meaning « always together ».

Shortly after, the crowd moved into the main house, where the real party was just beginning.

Glimpses of Giudice and Ruelas’ first dance as a married couple were shared on Instagram – which also revealed the bride’s second dress of the night: a voluminous ballgown with floral embroidery paired with a huge glittering tiara .

As the newlyweds swayed to Ruelle’s « I Get To Love You » in the Park Chateau’s lavish Grand Ballroom, an ethereal-looking white mist spread across the floor, making the lovebirds look as if floated on a cloud.

Later, another sweet interaction happened, as Ayan’s 14-year-old son Taj broke into a dance with Giudice to the beat of « Yeah! » by Usher.

Ruelas proposed to Giudice in Greece in October 2021 after dating for just over a year. Around the same time, the lovebirds moved in with Giudice’s daughters and Ruelas’ sons, Luis Jr. and Nicholas, from previous marriages.
