The couple spared no expense in treating their guests and pulling out all stops for their wedding which looked something out of a dream including a beautiful bride and a handsome groom.
When asked why Vergara wanted a destination wedding, she said that L.A. was too far away and she wanted all her family and friends from U.S., South America and Europe to be in attendance. So the stunning actress tied the knot with the handsome Joe Manganiello at The Breakers Palm Beach resort in Florida on Sunday, surrounded by nearly 400 of their close family and friends.
Mindy Weiss served as wedding planner for the event with celebrity florist Jeff Leatham providing elaborate floral installations as they created magic together. Leatham decked the ballrooms out with light green and dark pink flowers. Famed New York cake designer Sylvia Weinstock will provide the desserts for the evening. Lorraine Schwartz provided the wedding rings for the couple.
The couple kept things fun and casual. They arrived Thursday night and enjoyed nightly dinners with their loved ones. As more friends and family arrived at the resort, the celebrations increased. By Saturday, Vergara started off the day poolside.
Guests were shuttled to The Brazilian Court Hotel’s Café Boulud for a rehearsal dinner by Saturday evening. They returned to Breakers for a dessert party that went into the wee hours. Vergara and Manganiello didn’t leave the festivities which included an elaborate cake spread as Sofia is a dessert fanatic.
Colombian singer Jorge Celedon, a special performance by the groom serenading his bride-to-be with "Sweet Child O' Mine" and tons of dancing continued late at night. 400 guests arrived for the wedding. The ladies attending the wedding were all treated to hair and make up by the bride herself.
The lack of a bachelorette party was explained by Vergara. She said that they didn’t celebrate bachelorette parties at home so she wasn’t going to. The couple asked family and friends to make donations to one of their favoured charities, St. Jude Children's Hospital and Pittsburgh Children's Hospital.
The ceremony was conducted indoors inside a small area decorated with white roses, orchids and hydrangeas. Sofia walked down the aisle in a dress by Zuhair Murad, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and carrying orchids as her 23 years old son Manolo walked her down the aisle. Manganiello, 38, wore a John Varvatos tux.
The couple mixed it up by exchanging the typical "I dos," with "I will" in front of a minister and members of the wedding party. They read passages from the Bible in both Spanish and English. Vergara and Manganiello also recited their own vows. The emotional ceremony included a lot of laughter and happy tears from the guests.
