Nicole Richie and rocker Joel Madden finally wed over the weekend. The wedding was held at father of the bride, Lionel Richie’s home. Richie’s dreams came true as she wore a wedding dress similar to Grace Kelly‘s and had an elephant on-hand for good luck.
The couple’s children played an active role in the wedding. Harlow, 2, served as the flower girl, and 15-month-old Sparrow was the ring-bearer.
Here’s what Richie told PEOPLE, about her wedding day:
“It was magical,” Richie, 29, tells PEOPLE. Adds Madden, 31: “It was the best night of my life.”
