Nicole Richie And Joel Madden Are Married!

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden tied the knot this Saturday at an extravagant but decidedly small affair at Lionel Richie’s Beverly Hills home.

Richie had her dress custom-designed by Marchesa. Benjii Madden played the role of best man for brother Joel and Samantha Ronson was a bridesmaid. Other guests included Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale and Kris Jenner…and of course, the couples two children Harlow and Sparrow. And no, Paris Hilton was nowhere in sight. Although there was one very awkward guest…a circus elephant! It was seen being led onto the grounds of the house where large white tents were set up for the affair. Traffic around the estate was completely closed off and security was extra tight to keep the affair ultra private.

“They wanted an Old Hollywood, glamorous feel to their wedding,” a source says. “Nicole wanted a memorable, elegant affair for only their closest friends and family on their special day.”

Let’s hope it’s only a matter of time before some photos pop up!
