Teresa Giudice STUNS in Mark Zunino gown and custom crystal tiara as she marries Luis Ruelas
Teresa Giudice looked like a pretty princess during her magnificent wedding over the weekend. The reality tv star said “I do” to Luis “Louie” Ruelas, her long-time boyfriend and entrepreneur, on Saturday, August 6, 2022, at the Park Chateau Estate in East Brunswick in front of their family and friends.
Giudice wore a stunning Mark Zunino gown, whereas the groom looked elegant in a white suit jacket and bow tie. The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey star's customized jewelry, a crystal tiara, was designed by Bridal Styles Couture.
Designing the 'pretty gown'
Giudice, who is close to her family, carried a veil designed by Bridal Reflections. The design of the veil matched the tattoo she inked in remembrance of her mother, Antonia Gorga, who died in March 2017. “The bride wore a custom Mark Zunino Atelier blush mermaid gown that featured over 300 yards of hand-draped English netting,” Zunino stated in an interaction with Page Six.“The train was over 100 inches long accented in crystal and pearl details with long white beaded evening gloves to match. 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’ which means ‘Always Together.’” Added Zunino in his statement.
Zunino further explained Giudice's love for the number three, “She told me that everything in her life happens in threes, and with the number 3, thus three pink hearts were embroidered over her heart and three ‘3’s’ were embroidered down the inside of her bodice. All of the elements were designed to help inspire a fantastic future filled with ‘love, love, love’ which Teresa always says,” Zunino who is also the designer friend of Giudice has even made short appearances on a few episodes of the “Real Housewives of Orange County” and the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” He is also popular for styling celebrities such as Britney Spears, Beyoncé and Elizabeth Taylor.
The reality tv star looked ravishing in the glamorous pale pink gown. The dazzling mermaid dress featured a sweetheart neckline and a fitted ruched silhouette leading to a flared ruffled skirt. She complemented the stunning look with a pair of sheer, pearl-lined gloves.
The bridesmaids also came up with their unique and innovative styles for the wedding. Her bridesmaids included her co-stars Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin as well as daughters Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12, who got ready with Teresa while wearing pink fur-trimmed robes from Lé Lauriér Bridal by Lauren Holovka. Later, the girl gang changed into blush pink dresses, in different styles, from Cocos Chateau Gowns for the ceremony and reception.
