White chairs were set out in serried ranks Friday morning, on lawns facing a raised rotunda where a microphone was set up in anticipation of the couple's exchange of vows.

At one-point Ruelas's sister, Veronica, dressed in flowing white dress and wearing a heavy silver cuff on her wrist stood at the microphone, apparently rehearsing her own role in the ceremony.

Giudice's brother, Joe Gorga, 42, and sister-in-law Melissa, 43, were notable by their absence. The always fractious relationship between the siblings has grown increasingly tense with Giudice confirming that Melissa will not be one of her bridesmaids.

Speaking recently, she stated, 'It is what it is. I'm not her best friend, she's not my best friend. We're family. I loved her. She's my sister-in-law, and vice versa. And I'm sure she loved me because I'm her sister-in-law. But do we hang out like best friends? No, we don't, and I'm okay with that.'

Teresa Giudice Marries Louie Ruelas

  Teresa Giudice Marries Louie Ruelas The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star has officially tied the knot again.The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Louie, who she began dating in 2020, said their "I do's" during a romantic ceremony where the bride walked down the aisle to "Ava Maria," at the Park Chateau Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick, New Jersey.

A chapel, its aisle strewn with petals when DailyMail.com visited Friday, is also on the site as a fallback venue should the thunderstorms that are forecast for Saturday break.

Giudice wore a white Chanel tank top paired with a thigh-skimming skirt embellished with ruffles, her husband-to-be wore white shorts and a white T-shirt. With 'FREE MAN' emblazoned across the front and 'Lions Not Sheep' written across the back it was perhaps a tongue-in-cheek reference to his impending marital state, or a thinly veiled dig at his predecessor, Joe, 50, who spent 41 months in prison for fraud in 2016 and was deported from the States on his release.

He is currently living in the Bahamas where his daughters are frequent visitors.

Joe has insisted there is no bad blood between him and his ex. For what it's worth, he said, he has given the couple, 'his blessing.'

Meanwhile all four of the fiercely loyal daughters he shares with Giudice have welcomed Ruelas into the family despite eldest daughter, Gia, once expressing concern that the relationship was moving too fast.

Teresa Giudice's hair is both mocked and celebrated on social media

  Teresa Giudice's hair is both mocked and celebrated on social media Numerous Twitter users voiced their opinions about how Teresa Giudice's hair was styled during her wedding ceremony, which took place in East Brunswick, New Jersey on Saturday. The 50-year-old reality television personality's locks were notably styled into a large bun that sat on top of her head and was held in place by a crown.The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member was widely mocked for her hairstyle, which earned her comparisons to science-fiction characters and fellow figures from television, though several users also shared their admiration for the difficult-to-style look.

Giudice got together with the man she now calls her soulmate in July 2020 – two months before her divorce from scandal-ridden Joe was finalized. The couple didn't go public with their relationship until later that year.

Even by the standards of reality television Giudice's love-life has been turbulent embracing as it has her own stint in prison when she was found guilty of mortgage fraud alongside Joe.

She served 11 months of a 15-month sentence in 2015 with the judge staggering her sentence and Joe's allowing one to remain with their children while the other did their time.

But while she was initially determined to stand by her man, Giudice's 20-year-marriage to Joe quickly crumbled on their mutual releases, with hotly denied rumors of infidelity on both sides. They separated in December 2019 and their divorce was finalized in September 2020.

By then Giudice had already found romance with Ruelas. The father of two sons, Louis Jr and Nicholas, has had his own brushes with controversy in the form of allegations of domestic violence against his ex-wife Marisa DiMartino.

On one occasion he allegedly pushed DiMartino into a metal pole. DiMartino refused medical attention and declined to press charges though a police report was filed.

In another report filed by DiMartino on New Year's Eve 2010 she claimed that a 'verbal dispute' with her then husband had forced her to leave the family home. Again, no arrests were made, nor charges pressed.

For her part, Giudice had no hesitation in saying 'yes' when Ruelas popped the question on a vacation in Greece with former housewife Dina Manzo, 50, and her husband David Cantin, 42.

Speaking to People magazine when news of their engagement broke in October 2021 a source said, 'It was absolutely exquisite. The choreographed fireworks display illuminated a 'Marry Me' sign as Louie got down on one knee. Teresa was completely surprised.'

The group celebrated until 5am drinking champagne and dining on lobster, sea bass and lamb chops in the Amanzoe Resort in Porto Heli's restaurant, Nama.

As their Friday afternoon rehearsal came to an end Giudice and Ruelas shared a tender kiss before hopping in his G-Wagon together for the quick spin round to the on-site hotel, the Grand Chateau, where they and other members of the bridal party, all in high spirits, checked in.

On Saturday, between 150 and 200 guests are expected to join them to celebrate their marriage with the after-party expected to last into Sunday morning.
