Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge’s Star-Studded French Riviera Wedding: A Recap
Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge have tied the knot in a luxurious wedding extravaganza in the French Riviera. The couple, who got engaged in April 2022, celebrated their nuptials with a star-studded guest list that included Sofia's older sister Nicole Richie and her husband Joel Madden, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, Paris Hilton and Carter Reum, and more. The bride wore three custom Chanel haute couture dresses throughout the weekend, including a floor-length gown designed with beaded fringe and a tier silhouette for the rehearsal dinner, a delicate gown with iridescent white sequins and a criss-cross neckline for the ceremony, and a two-piece minidress set for the after-party. Sofia's wedding-weekend wardrobe also included earrings made by her sister Nicole Richie.
Richie explained that while she originally envisioned wearing a big princess dress, she realized she wanted something simpler as she got older, though her dress was anything but simple. She also converted to Judaism ahead of the ceremony, and her father Lionel Richie, who is a frequent collaborator and friend of Elliot's father, Sir Lucian Grainge, expressed his love for the groom, saying, “I've known him since he was 12. It was one of those things where I don't have to go back and check out the kid. I know who it is.”S&E”S&E”something blue.”something blue.”I can dance, [and] I can move,”I can dance, [and] I can move,”I will be eating pizza and fries in this dress.
