WEDDING FAB: Inside Nicole Richie's Wedding & First Photo

 

Nicole Richie got married a few days ago to her longtime boyfriend and children's father Good Charlotte artist Joel Madden. Their first wedding photo and more wedding deets have hit the net.  Read on to see Nicole's fabulous Grace Kelly inspired dress...

 

Bad girl turned fashion maven mommy Nicole Richie told People.com that she'd always dreamed about getting married in a dress inspired by Princess Grace Kelly's iconic wedding gown.  And she wanted to have a live elephant on-site to bring good luck. And she did it. 

On Dec. 11th, Nicole married longtime-boyfriend and the father of her two children, rockstar Joel Madden.  The uber private ceremony was held at the fab Beverly Hills home of her superstar father, Lionel Richie and officiated by Rev. Run

 

It was truly a family affair with the couple's daughter Harlow, 2, as the flower girl and 15-month-old Sparrow was the ring-bearer.  Cute. I wonder if Lionel sang too.  Y'all know he would grease that jherri curl up any chance he gets...

The wedding tent was made to look like a French garden and the fab wedding dress was designed by Marchesa.  And if that wasn't enough, Nicole wore two other Marchesa dresses during the special day including a ball-gown skirt crafted from more than 100 yards of hand-draped silk organza and tulle petals. 

Breathtakingly gorgeous dress and she looked beautiful.  Congrats to the Maddens!

Nicole's mother is half black

Nicole's mother is half black and she claims black herself so I think she knows what she is talking about. Plus her culture is African American too! Nicole never claims anything else, in spite of what other people say about her.

why do black people have to claim everything. As far as I know, Nicole doesn't have black in her, she was just adopted by a black man and his wife, that doesn't make her automatically black. Who cares if somebody's is black or not.

The rumor is that her birth

The rumor is that her birth father is half Black and half Mexican but Nicole denies it. Her birth mother is Half white and half Black. Nicole went on Tyra's old show and told her yes, I'm black. When Wanye Brady tried to bring Pete and Sheila E on his show to meet Nicole she refused to meet with them and said she knows who her father is. Another rumor is that Lionel impregnated a groupie while he was married to Brenda and he convinced his friend Pete Michael to claim paternity so Brenda would not find out. Anyway Nicole knows the truth about who she is and has clearly stated so.

I really admire Nicole and

I really admire Nicole and think people could learn so much from her. She was a 'wild child' sure but when she had her child she really focused her life around her children and family and you can tell she's extremely happy. Just goes to show no matter what you've done its okay to act out a little and have fun as long as you can reel it in and know when to say when. Wish her the absolute best!!!!

I love a strong come back kid and Nicole got her life together and became what appears to be a positive woman, mother, and now wife. Beautiful dress fits her persona. I love the contrast between her and Joel's style. Family pic is too cute.

Y'all are killing me with the Vanessa/Zac comments. I need some of y'all to tweak your gaydar a little bit because homeboy was/is clearly "How You Doin'?" And that little Corbin Bleu needs to be pushed out of the closet as well. But back to the Madden's. Bravo, Nicole, for getting your grown woman sophisticate on. I'm loving that Marchesa dress, and loving Nicoles line Winter Kate, too. Bought a fly little Winter Kate mini dress number for my bday and rocked it hella hard!

co-sign sexylady and

co-sign sexylady and buttafly7... what matters is that the person that you are with respect you and love you and treats you well. If that is a man that happens to be of another color then so be it. I love men in general and being a black woman if the right man for me isn't black then so be it! Nicole and Joel appear to be happy and in love and they have a beautiful family. CONGRATS to the Maddens!

Congrats to Nicole and Joel.

Congrats to Nicole and Joel. They have a beautiful family. Vanessa Hudgens is not Hispanic but is Filipina. She does not make get a Black Pass, however I will not front I was sad that Zac and Vanessa broke up.

I wonder if Sheila E was in

I wonder if Sheila E was in attendance, as Nicole's real Dad is Sheila E's brother who used to play drums for the Commodores..... Lionel and Brenda were having challenges conceiving so when her real parents couldn't take care of her, they adopted her and raised her.....

They've said her biological

They've said her biological Aunt is Shelia E. Shelia E has hispanic and african american in her background so Nicole has some black.

He birth father is Hispanic

He birth father is Hispanic and I'm not sure what her mother's background is. They had footage of him playing the drums at some concert on the day his daughter was getting married. I guess he knows that Lionel Dad and can accept that.
