Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello recently tied the knot in an unforgettable wedding at Palm Beach’s Breakers Resort.

Now, as the gorgeous couple head back to work following a romantic honeymoon, PEOPLE Now is breaking down exactly what went into Vergara and Manganiello’s dream-like nuptials.


A whopping 350 guests shared in the couple’s special day, including Vergara’s Modern Family costars, Reese Witherspoon and Channing Tatum. The attendants then danced the night away with a 38-member band – plus an appearance by Pitbull!

That Dress!

The 43-year-old wore a custom, intricate Zuhair Murad couture design as she walked down the aisle. She did not wear a veil and carried a bouquet of orchids. It took 1,657 hours and a team of 32 to make the strapless, silk-tulle gown featuring a sweetheart neckline and hand-embroidered 3-D embellishments on the bodice.

The Cake

The couple made sure the wedding was one to remember, and the pièce de résistance was the cake – a stunning, five-tier, vanilla confection by Sylvia Weinstock that featured a quilted design, a variety of white flowers and was topped with a giant floral arrangement.

Giving Back

It seems Manganiello, 38, and Vergara were thinking of others on their big day. In lieu of gifts, guests could donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
