Teresa Giudice Officially Marries Luis "Louie" Ruelas and We Have the Sweet Details
The RHONJ cast member wed her longtime love in a stunning ceremony in front of loved ones.
Meet Mr. and Mrs. Ruelas! On Saturday, August 6, The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice officially married Luis "Louie" Ruelas in front of family and friends.The event took place in New Jersey at the Park Chateau, according to E! News.
This marks the second marriage for Teresa, who was previously married to Joe Giudice for two decades. They finalized their divorce in September 2020. Together they have four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, all of whom were in attendance and served as bridesmaids. PEOPLE reports that Louie's sons were also in attendance at the wedding, which was officiated by Louie's sister, Dr. Veronica Ruelas. All their children participated in the ceremony by joining the newlyweds in lighting unity candles.
The publication also reports that there was a special nod to Teresa's late parents: she walked down the aisle to "Ave Maria" in honor of them. PEOPLE adds that Teresa said in her vows to her new husband, "I will love you for a million tomorrows."
Cameras were rolling on the wedding. According to other reports, guests at Saturday's romantic event included RHONJ's Jennifer Aydin, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Jackie Goldschneider; The Real Housewives of Dubai's Chanel Ayan; The Real Housewives of Miami's Alexia Nepola; The Real Housewives of Potomac's Ashley Darby; The Real Housewives of New York City's Dorinda Medley and Jill Zarin; and The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, and Cynthia Bailey.
Teresa and Louie began dating in July 2020 after first meeting at the Jersey Shore (in fact, the couple recently headed back to the spot and shared the moment on Instagram!). Their wedding took place less than a year after Teresa confirmed her engagement to Louie. He popped the question during a trip to Greece along with Dina Manzo and her husband Dave Cantin. While the newlywed's relationship, and even the wedding planning, sometimes stirred up some drama and opinions along the way, ultimately Teresa and Louie's love bubble couldn't be popped and they wed in front of loved ones on Saturday.
It's been a happy time for Teresa. Just days before they said "I do," Teresa's friends gathered at a bridal shower that celebrated the RHONJ cast member's new chapter.
Teresa opened up about what it's been like to blend her family with Louie's family in an episode of Bravo Insider's Housewife to Housewife, which you can check out below. In the clip at the top of the post, Teresa shared more details about her wedding plans.
RHONJ is streaming on Peacock and available on the Bravo app.
