The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has married her long-term boyfriend, businessman Louie Ruelas. A sunset ceremony was held at Park Chateau Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick, New Jersey on Saturday during which the couple exchanged their wedding vows in front of approximately 220 guests.
The New York Post reported that Giudice's four daughters -- Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, twelve -- served as bridesmaids. Giudice's ex-husband and the father of her children, Joe Giudice, posted a photo on Instagram of the pair wearing matching peach gowns.
The guests included Jill Zarin, Dorinda Medley, Alexia Echevarria, Chanel Ayan, Loni Love, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Ashley Darbey, Kenya Moore, and Phaedra Parks, Dolores Catania, and Jackie Goldschneider. Bravo will air the lavish affair at a later date.
Giudice wore a strapless dress with a mermaid silhouette designed by Mark Zunino. The ensemble was completed with a tiara and a veil embroidered with interlinking hearts and the words "Sempre Insieme," which means, "Always Together."
A bouquet of white roses was carried by the bride. In addition to the white tuxedo jacket, black bowtie, and black pants, the groom wore a white and black striped vest. Giudice, 50, and Ruelas, 47, have been dating for about two years, and they were engaged in October last year. From 1999 to 2020, Giudice was married to her first husband, Joe.
After being accused of a variety of financial, tax, and fraud crimes, they both served time in prison. Additionally, Joe was deported to Italy but now resides in the Bahamas.
