We congratulate Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas on their wedding! At the Park Chateau Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick, New Jersey, the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple tied the knot on Saturday in front of 220 guests.
All four daughters of Giudice were at the funeral, including her 21-year-old daughter Gia and her 17-year-old daughters Gabriella and Milania as well as Luis' two sons, David and Nicholas. Giudice's RHONJ costars Jennifer Aydin, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Jackie Goldschneider were also present at the black tie event.
Chanel Ayan, Real Housewives of Dubai breakout, Alexia Nepola, Real Housewives of Potomac's Ashley Darby, Real Housewives of New York City alums Dorinda Medley and Jill Zarin, as well as Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, and Cynthia Bailey, were all guests at the event.
As previously reported by PEOPLE, the wedding was filmed in preparation for a Bravo special. Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga, as well as RHONJ alum Dina Manzo, were not in attendance. Catania, Aydin, and Giudice's four daughters served as bridesmaids, wearing light pink gowns and holding flowing white flowers. The groomsmen wore dark suits that coordinated with their gowns.
In white, the bride and groom both looked stunning. Giudice wore a strapless, long mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline. She wore white lace gloves. Her hair was highlighted and extensions flowed down her back as she wore a crown made of diamonds to hold her veil. In a white blazer, black pants, and a classic black bowtie, Ruelas kept it understated.
They held their outdoor ceremony in the presence of the family. Giudice walked down the aisle accompanied by violin players who played 'Ave Maria,' a song she chose to honor her parents. A unity candle was lit by each of the couple's children. Ruelas' sister, Dr. Veronica Ruelas, officiated the ceremony. Before they kissed, Giudice told her now-husband, 'I will love you for a million tomorrows.'.
The floral arrangements included two oversized hearts made of white flowers, as well as tall, cascading centerpieces decorated with gold accents, white linens, and lush floral arrangements. During their first dance, smoking covered the floor as they twirled to Ruelle's 'I Get To Love You.' As the wedding band played hits like 'The Way You Make Me Feel,' 'This Is How You Do It,' 'We Found Love,' and 'Hot in Here,' guests took over the dance floor.
Guests were also entertained by professional dancers, who performed a choreographer number to the Moulin Rouge soundtrack's 'Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend.' Zarin ate off of an extensive multi-course menu that included 'the biggest cowboy steaks' he'd ever seen, Shake Shack pizza, and a candy truck for late-night snacking.
In 2020, Giudice met Ruelas organically and off camera and asked for his phone number. The two began dating in 2020. Although Giudice and her husband seem to be happy in their 'love bubble,' the relationship hasn't been without controversy. Her own daughter, Gia, has also questioned the relationship.
Despite their obstacles, Giudice and Ruelas remain committed to each other, and she told him on Instagram in June: 'I love you to the moon and back.' Despite Ramona Singer accidentally posting important details on social media about the wedding date, the ceremony went on as planned with a few adjustments.
A few of Darby's closest Housewives pals attended her bridal shower last weekend, including Catania, Aydin, and rumored RHONJ newbies, Danielle Cabral and Caroline Rauseo. She captioned her social media post, celebrating her happiest moments with @teresagiudice #LouResa #ChosenFamily, 'Love celebrating your happiest moments with you.'
The Highlawn in West Orange hosted a rehearsal dinner for Giudice and Ruelas' inner circle on Friday. A beachside proposal in Greece ended in Guidice and Ruelas getting engaged last October, where Ruelas set up candles and a sign in the sand reading 'Marry Me.' The moment was topped off with fireworks.
There were fireworks choreographed with a 'Marry Me' sign while Louie got down on one knee, a source told PEOPLE. Teresa was completely surprised. A couple of photos have been popping up on Instagram ever since, showing off their love amid their many travels.
