Nicole Richie had her dreams come true when she married musician Joel Madden on December 11 at the home of her famous father, Lionel Richie. She got her winter wonderland, Marchesa-dress-wearing, fairy tale wedding and it all happened in front of her adorable children, Harlow and Sparrow. The proof of her happiness is in the photo released by People magazine.

Nicole Richie told People magazine, “It was magical.” Her new hubby Joel Madden added, “It was the best night of my life.”

The fashionista’s official wedding look was all the buzz leading right up to the wedding march and with three revolving Marchesa looks for the big day, Richie was a stunner in all. In one particular look, Richie rocked a full ball-gown skirt created from more than “100 yards of hand-draped silk organza and tulle petals.”

If you can’t imagine the magnificent beauty of one of Richie’s wedding gowns, just check out the picture. The couple never looked more in love. If you’re still wondering about all those reports in regards to the elephant that showed up, it was merely for luck. No one rode in on the big guy, he was just there to make sure the bride and groom were blessed with luck.
