The world is still buzzing with excitement over the recent nuptials of Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge. The socialite and her new husband, British music executive Grainge, tied the knot at the ultra-exclusive Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France this saturday. The star-studded guest list included the bride's famous father, Lionel Richie, and close friends like Paris Hilton, Cameron Diaz, and Benji Madden.
Sofia looked radiant in a custom Chanel wedding dress with an embellished train adorned with white and iridescent beads. Her sister, Nicole Richie, who was also in attendance, shared an intimate picture on Instagram of herself crouching down in her stunning black gown to straighten the bride's long train.
For the rehearsal dinner, Sofia wore yet another custom Chanel gown, featuring a camellia flower on the front. But it was her reception dress that stole the show. A traditional white Chanel dress that Sofia playfully declared she would be eating pizza and fries in! "Pray for this dress," she joked. "It will be my life's mission to make sure nothing happens to it."
In a pre-wedding interview with Vogue, Sofia spoke of her excitement about the dress and her anticipation of seeing her groom's reaction. "We created the top of that dress and made it bridal-y," she said. "It is such magic. I honestly think Elliot is going to love it. He is my biggest cheerleader when it comes to anything I wear. If he doesn't cry, I'll be very sad."
Sofia Richie's stunning wedding to Elliot Grainge was not only a celebration of their love but also a reflection of their longtime friendship. The couple had known each other since childhood, as their shared passion for music brought them together. In 2021, Sofia and Elliot decided to take their relationship to the next level and made it public.
In April 2022, Elliot proposed to Sofia in a romantic setting filled with candles and flowers. Sofia's engagement ring is a classic piece that takes inspiration from some of the most iconic sparklers in history. The ring features an emerald cut diamond, which is the same shape that Grace Kelly received from Prince Rainier of Monaco.
As the wedding approached, Sofia shared that she had converted from Christianity to Judaism, her fiancé's religion. In a series of Instagram Stories, she posted a photo of herself signing a document in Hebrew and expressed her gratitude to cantor Nathan Lam for helping her along the journey. She described the conversion as "one of the greatest experiences of my life."
