The event was filmed for a special set to air on Bravo, as PEOPLE previously reported. Missing from the big day were Giudice's brother and sister-in-law Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga, as well as RHONJ alum Dina Manzo, who was previously said to be a bridesmaid.

Speaking of bridesmaids, the women — including Catania, Aydin and Giudice's four daughters — wore various gowns in baby pink and held flowing white flowers. The groomsmen coordinated in dark suits.

As for the bride and groom, they both looked dazzling. Giudice wore a long, strapless blush mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline, which she paired with white lace gloves.

On her head, she wore a crown made of diamonds that held her veil, her highlighted locks and extensions flowing down her back.

Ruelas kept it understated in a white blazer, black pants and a classic black bowtie.

Family was a big part of their outdoor ceremony. Giudice walked down the aisle to violin players and "Ave Maria," a song chosen to honor of her late parents. Each of the couple's kids joined them in the lighting of the ceremony's unity candle. And the ceremony was officiated by Ruelas's sister, Dr. Veronica Ruelas.

"I will love you for a million tomorrows," Giudice told her now-husband before their kiss.

As for decor, the affair featured gold accents, white linens and lush floral arrangements, including two oversized hearts made of white flowers and tall, cascading centerpieces.

The pair had their first dance to Ruelle's "I Get To Love You," smoking covering the floor as they twirled around. Guests later took over the dance floor, grooving to a sea of hits like "The Way You Make Me Feel," "This Is How You Do It," "We Found Love," "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)," and "Hot in Here" performed by the wedding band.

A group of professional dancers also put on performances for guests, dancing at one point a choreographer number to "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" from the Moulin Rouge film soundtrack.

For food, a multi-course menu that including "the biggest cowboy steaks" Zarin'd ever seen. Shake Shack, a pizza truck, and a candy truck provided tasty treats for late-night snackers.

Giudice, 50, began dating Ruelas, 47, in 2020 after Ruelas asked for Giudice's phone number when they met organically and off camera.

While the couple have been vocal about being happy in their "love bubble," the relationship has not been without its share of controversy. People in Giudice's life have also questioned the coupling — including her own daughter Gia, who worried it was moving too quickly.

Still, Giudice and Ruelas have been steadfast in insisting their love has carried them through every obstacle, and she told him on Instagram in June: "I love you endlessly."

Even after RHONY star Ramona Singer (Giudice's cast mate from the first season of Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip) accidentally shared essential details about the wedding date on social media, the ceremony moved forward with some adjustments to their original plans.

Last weekend, the Turning Tables author had a bridal shower attended by some of her closest Housewives pals, including Darby, Catania, Aydin and rumored RHONJ newbies Danielle Cabral and Caroline Rauseo.

Aydin, 45, shared photos from the bash on social media, captioning her post: "Love celebrating your happiest moments with you @teresagiudice #LouResa #chosenfamily."

On Friday, friends in Giudice and Ruelas's inner circle gathered for a rehearsal dinner at The Highlawn in West Orange.

Guidice and Ruelas got engaged last October when he popped the question in a beachside proposal in Greece. Ruelas set up a sign in the sand that read "Marry Me" along with a walkway lined with candles. The moment was complete with a fireworks show for the couple.

"It was absolutely exquisite," a source told PEOPLE. "The choreographed fireworks display illuminated a 'Marry Me' sign as Louie got down on one knee. Teresa was completely surprised."

Since then the couple has continued to show off their love on Instagram, posing for couples photos amid their many travels.

Their wedding is expected to air on Bravo next year, after season 13 of RHONJ finishes.
