Teresa Giudice Marries Fiance Luis Ruelas in Opulent Wedding
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice tied the knot with fiance Luis Ruelas on August 6 in a glorious sunset ceremony and reception with friends and family.
The wedding took place at the luxurious Park Château Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick, New Jersey. The venue included an elegant mansion with a chapel on the luscious grounds.
RHONJ stars Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin served as bridesmaids along with Giudice’s four daughters, Gia, 21, Gabriella, 18, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 13.
Other Housewives in attendance include Margaret Josephs, Jackie Goldschneider, Jill Zarin, Dorinda Medley of New York City, Alexia Echevarria of Miami and Chanel Ayan of Dubai.
Giudice, 50, wore a mermaid-style custom Mark Zunino strapless dress with interlocking embroidered hearts on the veil which read, “Sempre Insieme” – meaning, “Always Together.”
“The train was over 100 inches long accented in crystal and pearl details with long white beaded evening gloves to match,” Zunino told Page Six Style in a statement.
“I wanted to help Teresa pay tribute to her family in some way, so her veil was designed exclusively for her with three large hearts and the Italian phrase ‘Sempre Insieme.’”

Giudice also wore a huge sparking tiara, taking her extravagant look to the next level.
After the ceremony, she changed into her rehearsal dress, which was an off-the-shoulder ballgown with floral embroidery.
For the couples first dance, a layer of fog covered the dance floor, creating the illusion they were floating on clouds.
Giudice and Ruelas, 48, had been dating just over a year before he proposed in Greece in October 2021.
The engagement follows a year after her divorce from ex-husband Joe Giudice, who was deported to Italy after serving a sentence for tax evasion. They were married for 20 years.
