Bring out the sprinkled cookies … Teresa Giudice and Luis “Louie” Ruelas are married! The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Digital Media Solutions cofounder tied the knot on Saturday, August 6, after nearly two years of dating.
The pair exchanged vows in East Brunswick, New Jersey, at Park Chateau Estates & Garden, surrounded by family, friends and fellow Bravo celebrities. RHONJ star Dolores Catania and The Real Housewives of New York OG Ramona Singer were just some of the few famous faces that helped celebrate the newlyweds.
“[It’s] going to be a beautiful affair,” Luis previously told Life & Style, while gushing over wedding plans. “All the kids involved. Her four daughters. My two sons. Training the dogs to walk down the aisle,” he continued.
The pair faced troubles after Ramona accidentally leaked intimate details of the wedding while showing off her invitation online in June 2022, exposing the date, location, guest list and gift registry.
“I just got the most exotic, glamorous wedding invitation I’ve ever received in my life — and trust me, I receive a lot,” she said in the video. However, Teresa realized it was an “honest mistake” and immediately called her fellow Bravolebrity about the Instagram video.
“I called her and said please take it down,” she said. “She said ‘Yeah, I’m sorry. I was so excited — it was the best invitation I’ve ever gotten, and I get invited to a lot of weddings,’” she continued. “And I was like, ‘That’s no problem — that’s okay, just take it down.’”
Besides the invitation mishap, Teresa and Luis continued to be blissfully in love, leading up to their nuptials. The two went on many vacations, one in particular for Luis’ extravagant birthday celebration. The New York Times best selling author and New Jersey native went on a romantic trip to Turks and Caicos while soaking up some sun and indulging in delectable dining.
“You have no idea how you’ve changed my life,” Teresa captioned a dinner side photo during their April 2022 vacation. “You have shown my girls what true love is, you nurture my soul, make me feel beautiful & adored, I’m so thankful to the universe for bringing us together,” she continued.
Their romance began “at the very end of summer” 2020, a source told In Touch in November 2020. They met on the Jersey Shore while Teresa was walking with a friend when she randomly ran into her now-husband, and they exchanged numbers after their organic encounter. “The relationship is new and they are taking things very slow,” the insider continued. “They very recently met each other’s children.”
