Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Are Married!
Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello's have tied the knot! Martha Stewart Weddings has been following along closely ever since we spoke to the Modern Family actress about her wedding plans for our Fall Style Issue. "I want a wedding where the guests are going to have fun," Vergara told us. "It's about creating memories that you're always going to cherish. That's what's important."
The couple got married Sunday night at The Breakers Palm Beach in Florida in front of fellow celebrities including Channing Tatum and Reese Witherspoon according to People. The wedding party read from the Bible in Spanish and English, and the couple exchanged self-penned vows, saying "I will's" instead of "I do's."
Vogue reports that Vergara walked down the aisle in a Zuhair Murad wedding dress. The actress shared the first photo of the beautiful ballgown on her Instagram account. "It's a fitted dress because we wanted to see her beautiful curves," Murad told Vogue.com, "but at the same time there is the removable outerskirt so later on she can remove the ball gown skirt. We wanted something very spectacular and grandiose." Mission accomplished!
Vergara carried a bouquet of white orchids as her 23-year-old son, Manolo, escorted her down the aisle (aw!). Following Colombian tradition, the rest of the bridal party was limited to just "some flower girls and a ring boy," Vergara said. The ceremony space was filled with a jaw-dropping display of white flowers, including what looked like white roses lining the aisle and white orchids and hydrangeas suspended from the ceiling.
The ballroom where the reception was held, however, was outfitted with romantic red blooms, which surrounded the dance floor where the newlyweds shared their first dance, likely to a tune of Manganiello's choosing. Vergara told us she put Joe in charge of the first dance song selection. "If it were up to me, we'd dance to Pitbull," she said, laughing.
The wedding cake and dessert display was truly amazing, which comes as no surprise to us. "Cake is my favorite thing," the actress told us. "So the cake table is going to be superspecial, a big wedding cake and lots of desserts."
... and later changed into another little white dress, this time a fun, strapless number by Mark Zunino.
The rehearsal dinner aesthetic foreshadowed the reception décor to come. Here, pretty place settings stunned among red roses and candles.
And adorable napkins from Wedding Paper Divas quipped, "He had me at hola."
The pre wedding festivities included plenty of singing and dancing, with Manganiello even serenading his bride-to-be to the tune of "Sweet Child O' Mine"-watch the performance below!
Vergara wore a white, lacy cover-up (again by Medeiros) befitting of a bride.
The celebrity couple kicked off the weekend on Thursday afternoon, with a cocktail party on a private beach at the resort. There, they welcomed family and friends from their 300-plus guest list, who stayed on-site, in over 100 hotel rooms and 50 private homes. The wedding location was chosen for its proximity to international guests: "I want all the people from Columbia and South America and from Europe to be able to make it to the wedding," Vergara revealed to ET. "Los Angeles is very far away from everything.
In lieu of wedding gifts, the generous pair has asked guests to donate to charities like St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
