Mazel Tov to Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge, who were wed in the South of France on Saturday. Lionel Richie’s daughter tied the knot with her British record executive husband after approximately two years of dating. Considered the wedding of the year, the bash oversaw Sofia walking down the aisle in a wedding gown of wonders – and we expected nothing less.

The 24-year-old looked breathtakingly beautiful in photos shared by Vogue in a silky white dress that came with a gorgeous sheer veil to create a true princess effect.

Her fairytale aesthetic was crafted with a helping hand from trusty stylist Liat Baruch. The gown featured a criss-cross neckline with white sequins and beads sewn into the fabric, as well as the initials 'S&E' with the date underneath. 

Sofia’s caramel locks were styled into an elegant bun as she walked down the aisle and her radiant features which accentuated by a glowing makeup blend. A flawless complexion made for the ultimate bridal beauty look for 2023.

Husband Elliot, who is the son of Lucien Grainge, the CEO of Universal Music Group, looked uber-polished beside his wife wearing a tuxedo. 

Wedding guests congratulated the happy couple following the exquisite ceremony. As expected, the list of attendees was saturated with stars. Actress Cameron Diaz, British influencer Amelia Liana, Tess Kemper - founder of Doll Face cosmetics, Instagram favorite Interior designer Roxy Bijany, Tania Shroff, Mariana Hewitt and Lauren Ireland - founders of current It-girl beauty brand Summer Fridays and fashion model Nada Adelle were all in attendance.

The couple’s official union comes after he proposed back in April 2022, in a stunning beachside, candlelit setting.

The duo were married in a Jewish ceremony. Honoring her husband’s faith, Sofia converted to Judaism before the big day which included a number of traditions such as exchanging vows under a chuppah – an altar positioned at the end of the aisle, circling – where the bride walks around the groom seven times and breaking the glass to symbolize supporting one another through thick or thin.

The day before the main event, she dazzled in a beaded column dress in a Twentie's flapper style, and for her third and final party dress she wore a white mini dress with a peplum skirt. which you can see in the above carousel. 

Clearly, bridal status suits Sofia perfectly.

The starlet had debuted her ‘something blue’ earlier this week, wearing a heavenly dress from Khaite, complete with long, slightly fluted sleeves, a high neck and delicate sheer paneling across the neckline. 

Upon their engagement last year, Sofia wrote: “Forever isn’t long enough,” allowing friends and family to flood her with congratulations in response.
