Teresa Giudice looked like a real princess at her lavish wedding over the weekend.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star said “I do” to Luis “Louie” Ruelas on Saturday at the Park Chateau Estate in East Brunswick, NJ, in front of family, friends and co-stars.
Giudice, 50, stunned in a Mark Zunino dress while the groom looked sharp in a white suit jacket and bow tie.
The star of OG “RHONJ” also wore a custom crystal tiara from Bridal Styles Couture and a veil from Bridal Reflections – which was embroidered to match the tattoo she got in honor of her late mother, Antonia Gorga, who died in died in March 2017.
“The bride wore a bespoke Mark Zunino Atelier blush mermaid dress with over 300 yards of hand-draped English netting,” Zunino told Vidak For Congress Style in a statement.
“The train was over 100 centimeters long, accentuated in crystal and pearl detailing with matching white beaded long evening gloves. I wanted to help Teresa pay tribute to her family in some way, so her veil was designed exclusively for her with three big hearts and the Italian phrase ‘Semper Insieme’ which means ‘Always together’.’
Zunino continued: “She told me that everything in her life happens in threes, so the number 3 embroidered three pink hearts across her heart and three ‘3s’ on the inside of her bodice. All elements are designed to inspire a fantastic future full of ‘love, love, love’, as Teresa always says!”
Zunino seems to be a go-to for “Housewives” going down the aisle, having designed wedding dresses for both Denise Richards (when she married Aaron Phypers in 2018) and Tamra Judge (when she married Eddie Judge in 2013).
The designer has even made cameos in episodes of “Real Housewives of Orange County” and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Outside of bridal fashion, he has dressed celebrities from Britney Spears and Beyoncé to Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Collins.
The bridesmaids, including her co-stars Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin, as well as daughters Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12, got ready with Teresa wearing pink fur-trimmed robes from Lé Lauriér Bridal. by Lauren Holovka.
Then they changed into blush pink dresses, in different styles, from Cocos Chateau Gowns for the ceremony and reception.
Among those who did not attend was Dina Manzo, who has since moved to California.
Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga, and wife Melissa Gorga, also skipped the wedding, Vidak For Congress exclusively revealed.
“They were invited,” an insider told us, noting that a “very exciting ‘Housewives’ finale was filmed a week before the wedding.
Giudice and Ruelas, 48, got engaged in October 2021, a year after the former finalized her divorce from ex-husband Joe Giudice.
While Giudice initially denied that the wedding would be filmed for Bravo, Melissa hinted that cameras would be rolling for a wedding special.
