The festivities began the night before the big day, in an intimate setting with her bridesmaids, including her sister. 

"We stayed up laughing all night. The next morning, I woke up with all of my bridesmaids and my sister and we went to an 8 a.m. rehearsal," Sofia reminisced in an interview with Vogue.

Walking down the aisle, Sofia was lovingly escorted by her father, Lionel Richie, who provided comforting words that she treasures to this day. "My father has always been the most comforting figure in my life, and he’s kept me grounded," she shared. 

Lionel's words, "You're the love of my life, and I'm so happy for you," were a significant emotional anchor for her on her special day.

In keeping with Elliot’s Jewish heritage, the ceremony was imbued with tradition, something Sofia embraced wholeheartedly. 

"It was very important to Elliot's family and to me, now that I've converted, that it be a traditional Jewish ceremony," she explained, highlighting her deep respect and commitment to their shared cultural values.

Elliot planned a special surprise for Sofia by arranging for her favorite song, Until I Found You by Stephen Sanchez, to be played as she walked down the aisle. 

The celebration continued with a lively reception that turned into a nightclub-inspired after-party, where the newlyweds and their guests danced the night away. 

"We just sat around recapping until the morning. It was great!" Sofia recounted, her voice filled with happiness as she recalled the wonderful moments of their wedding night.
