Lionel Richie walked his daughter Sofia Richie down the aisle in a lavish wedding in France.
The singer’s daughter, 24, married her partner of two years, 30-year-old music manager Elliott Gering, over the weekend surrounded by notable friends and family.
Although official photos of the stunning nuptials have yet to be released, many guests have taken to social media to share snapshots of the wedding, event details, and other snippets. Create. of her dresses. .
The blushing bride wore three Chanel dresses for her luxurious wedding at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc on the French Riviera.
Her first dress was at the rehearsal dinner for which the Daily Mail reported the guests wore a “cocktail dress”. The model wore an ivory sequin dress with a high neck and a delicately embellished bodice.
Her formal wedding dress, which she wore that day, was a delicate gown with iridescent white sequins and a plunging neckline. She wore her hair pulled back in a low bun and wore natural makeup.
In a video posted on Vogue’s official Instagram page, she revealed that as a little girl she dreamed of a “big princess dress” but now she’s more interested in a “simple” style.
The model also gushed about how she thought the future husband would react when he saw her: “Honestly, I think Elliott would love that.
“She is my biggest cheerleader when it comes to anything I wear. If he wasn’t crying, I would be so sad.”
The dress, which was designed and made at the Chanel Haute Couture Salon in Paris, also included a touching ode to her husband and classic wedding traditions.
For the ‘colour blue’, the designers included a blue ‘S&E’ design on the inside of the dress and to express the relationship of the young couple, they included two heart designs facing each other.
The last wedding dress she wore for the weekend was her reception dress, an ivory mini dress with the Chanel logo on the front.
She told Vogue that her final white dress will be the most understated because it was the last dress of the evening and that she will eat pizza and fries at the after party, which will be her “cabaret” at night.
The Daily Mail reports that the couple said ‘yes’ in front of their closest friends and family — including Sofia’s parents Lionel Richie and Diane Alexander, Elliott’s father Lucien Gering and stepmother Caroline Gering, at a waterside five-star hotel.
Since Elliot is Jewish, Sophia converts to the faith so that the couple can marry in the traditional Jewish way with a rabbi officiating the ceremony.
The solemn ceremony took place under the Chuppa which, in their faith, symbolizes the Jewish home they will build together in their married life.
The bride’s shy sister, Nicole Richie, her husband, Joel Madden, and longtime partner of Lionel, Lisa Parigi, were there to witness the love-filled day and celebrate with the newlyweds. However, Sophia’s brother, Miles, was absent.
Other notable guests included Benji Madden and his wife, Cameron Diaz, and Paris Hilton and her husband, Carter Rheum.
The model kicked off her wedding day with an intimate wedding breakfast and shared photos of the perfectly set table for 10 people on her Instagram.
In shades of pink, blue and yellow, she rocked a casual breakfast look, wearing a white blazer, black pajama pants, slippers, sunglasses and a white hat.
