Officially husband and wife! On Sunday, Nov. 22, Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello tied the knot in a stunning Palm Beach, Fla., wedding, filled with celebrity guests, a plethora of floral touches, big musical performances, and plenty of romance.
An insider tells Us Weekly that the extravaganza began in The Breakers Hotel and Resort Palm Beach’s The Circle room, which was adorned with tons of white flowers. Guests were treated to a cocktail reception prior to the ceremony.
For the vows, the attendees moved into the Mediterranean Ballroom, where Vergara, 43, clad in a gorgeous, strapless Zuhair Murad custom gown, walked down the flower-lined aisle on the arm of her son, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara, 23, who then gave her away to her hunky groom, 38. Manganiello wore a sleek John Varvatos tuxedo to wed the sitcom star.
Celebrity guests included Vergara’s Modern Family castmates Ed O'Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sarah Hyland, and Ariel Winter and other costars Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum, and Paul Reubens.
The ceremony was performed in both English and Spanish, and an eyewitness tells Us that there was both “laughter and tears” throughout.
For the reception, guests moved into the Venetian Ballroom, which “looked like an overgrown jungle of roses, something out of a fairy tale,” the insider tells Us. The newlyweds were introduced in Spanish as “los novios” before transitioning into their first dance, “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra.
The party continued late into the evening, with the dinner still going on at midnight. A five-tiered fondant cake, crafted by cake designer Sylvia Weinstock, was adorned with edible white roses and small white flowers with bright yellow centers.
Around 1 a.m. local time, Pitbull gave a surprise performance as the guests cheered and danced. Witherspoon later posted an Instagram picture of a tired panda, writing, “Monday feelings after #jofiawedding #bestweddingever #pitbull.”
After jamming out to “Mr. Worldwide,” guests then got down to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” Marc Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” The party raged into the early morning hours, with Vergara posting a series of beautiful Instagrams from the fete.
