“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice married Luis “Louie” Ruelas in a lavish wedding ceremony at Park Chateau Estate and Gardens in East Brunswick, N.J., on Saturday.
Giudice, 50, wore a tight-fitting strapless wedding gown paired with mesh gloves, while Ruelas, 48, rocked a tuxedo with black pants and a white jacket. The bride’s look was finished off with an embellished crown, long veil and dazzling earrings.
The guest list read as a mini BravoCon, with stars from nearly every franchise in attendance, including her “RHONJ” co-stars Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin, who served as bridesmaids.
Giudice’s four daughters Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16 and Audriana, 12, were also bridesmaids.
Giudice’s other co-stars Margaret Josephs — who previously teased she didn’t think she’d get invited — Jackie Goldschneider and rumored “RHONJ” newcomer Danielle Cabral also all watched the lovebirds say “I do.”
Page Six exclusively revealed on Friday that Giudice’s brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Melissa Gorga, would not be attending the nuptials.
“Real Housewives” head honcho Andy Cohen was also in attendance.
Other invited guests included her “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” co-stars, including Luann de Lesseps, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey and Ramona Singer — who leaked venue deets weeks before the ceremony.
The Bravolebrity’s nuptials, which were reportedly filmed for a spinoff show on Bravo, didn’t totally go off without a hitch. Page Six reported on Friday that her daughter Gia was “begging” to be let on a flight home from Nashville on Thursday.
Prior to the big day, Giudice and Ruelas seemingly had a joint bachelor and bachelorette party at Cedars Lebanese Cuisine on Thursday night. Giudice posted several videos to her Instagram Story of her and her beau dancing the night away with belly dancers, her daughters and other celebs.
The mom of four also celebrated her bridal shower with close friends and family earlier this week. The reality star sipped on “Tretini” cocktails while posing for photos in front of a wall covered with roses.
Giudice hit a major wedding planning roadblock when Singer leaked the exact time, date, and location of her nuptials, causing the pair to hire “more security” among other possible changes.
The couple got engaged in Greece in October 2021 after nearly a year of dating. Giudice finalized her divorce from Joe Giudice — with whom she shares her four daughters — in September 2020.
The “Turning the Tables” author gushed to Page Six in May about how involved her soon-to-be hubby was in the wedding process.
“Wedding plans are going amazing. Luis is involved with me, and I love that. We’re doing it together, so it’s not just me,” she said, adding, “I remember my first wedding; I did it by myself. But [Luis is] involved, and I love that.”
