Nicole Richie and Joel Madden get married

After four years together and two children, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have finally tied the knot.

A whole lot of thought went into the small-scale ceremony. According to E! Online, Richie spent a considerable amount of time fretting over which dress to wear on her wedding day. She finally settled on an elegant Marchesa over a vintage Chanel.

“It’s custom-made, white, and cost her $20,000,” a source told E!

The couple’s rings were by jeweler Neil Lane, who also crafted Richie’s 4-carat engagement ring, another source told People.

The ceremony took place on Saturday in the home of Nicole’s father, the famous Lionel Richie, in Beverly Hills. Approximately 150 close family and friends attended the event, with a very special guest making an evening appearance, US Magazine reports. At around 5.40pm, an elephant was seen being led into the white tent along with the rest of the wedding party.

DJ Samantha Ronson served as one of the bridesmaids, while the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Harlow was assigned the duty of flower girl. Other celebrity guests included Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Khloe Kardashian. Christina Aguilera was invited but could not attend due to commitments in Europe promoting her new movie Burlesque.

The ceremony had a winter theme – apparently inspired by Nicole’s favourite time of year.

“Nicole is obsessed with the season,” a pal told US Magazine of the 29-year-old designer and author, who confirmed her engagement in February. Her daughter’s middle names are Winter Kate, also the title of her clothing line.

“[The fete is] less about Joel and Nicole getting married and more about having a party,” another friend told the magazine. “The spirit is that it’s a celebration and it’s very low-key.”

“We’re really focused on our family, and…we already feel kind of married, you know?” Madden, 31, told Larry King in 2009. “Our family system that we have down, we feel like this is a real family and marriage, one day it will come.”

Nicole’s dad, Lionel Richie, could not sing enough praises about his daughter and new son-in-law:

“My happiness for Nicole and Joel knows no boundaries,” he said. “They have given me two beautiful grandchildren, Harlow and Sparrow, and have proven to be great parents. I am not sure who is luckier, Nicole and Joel to have each other, or me, to have both of them in my life.”
