Nicole Richie and Joel Madden finally got hitched this weekend in Beverly Hills.
The happy couple got married Saturday at Lionel Richie’s home in Beverly Hills, California, before 130 friends and loved ones, People.com reports. Khloé Kardashian, Gwen Stefani Joel’s twin brother Benji and an elephant (yes, you read that correctly) were among guests at the lavish ceremony. It’s not clear how the elephant was involved in the wedding.
Unconventional attendee aside, the couple kept the rest of the wedding fairly traditional.
Ever the fashionista, the bride wore three dresses by designer Marchesa. According to UsMagazine.com, Nicole and Joel gave each other rings by Neil Lane while exchanging vows in front of Rev. Run.
"They’re going all-out with the décor," a source said. "Nicole wanted a memorable, elegant affair for only their closest friends and family on their special day."
Nicole and Joel also treated their guests to some top-notch goodies after the reception. TMZ.com reports that the couple served homemade butternut squash ravioli in brown sugar and a choice of filet mignon or seared ahi tuna.
Nicole and Joel announced their engagement in February. They have been together since 2006 and have two children.
