It’s official! Teresa Giudice has tied the knot with Luis Ruelas.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s wedding took place today at the Park Chateau Estate in New Jersey with about 200 guests. In attendance were some of Teresa’s RHONJ costars, including Jennifer Aydin, Margaret Josephs, and Dolores Catania.
“Teresa and Luis are married!” the Queens of Bravo announced in an Instagram post, along with a slideshow of photos, the first of which featured Teresa, who was wearing a stunning mermaid-style bridal gown with a crown on her head as she got a kiss from her new husband.
In another post shared by RHONJ Obsessed on Instagram, Teresa and Luis were seen holding hands at the altar.
In a slideshow of photos shared by Margaret, who reconciled with Teresa ahead of the event following a very messy season 12, the reality star posed with Jennifer Fessler, who is expected to appear on season 13 as a “friend.”
Also reportedly starring as a friend is Jackie Goldschneider, who attended Saturday’s ceremony with her husband, Evan Goldschneider.
Noticeably absent from the event were Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. Page Six broke the news yesterday that the Gorgas would not be in attendance following some drama that took place during the filming of the RHONJ season 13 finale this week. And in the past 24 hours, Joe and Melissa seemingly threw some shade at Teresa on social media.
The rift between Teresa and the Gorgas started when Teresa decided not to include Melissa in her wedding party despite reportedly including some of Luis’s sisters. Joe compared the bridesmaid snub of his wife to a “smack in the face” earlier this year.
As the wedding took place, Joe was photographed going grocery shopping.

But although she didn’t attend, Melissa did weigh in on Margaret’s look, writing, “You look beautiful.”
Meanwhile, Teresa’s ex-husband Joe Giudice is also speaking out, and surprisingly, it is to defend Luis while slamming his former brother-in-law Joe Gorga.
Joe Giudice tells TMZ he is happy for Teresa and Luis, and had this to say about the Gorgas: “I dealt with that thorn in my side for 20 years. Unfortunately, they always come around.”
Other attendees included Bravo housewives from other franchises, including The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kenya Moore, Real Housewives of New York City‘sDorinda Medley, Real Housewives of Miami‘s Alexia Echevarria, and Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby. Other Bravo stars and alums in attendance include Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, and Chanel Ayan.
