AceShowbiz - Teresa Giudice celebrated her wedding to Luis Ruelas with her loved ones but apparently that didn't include her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga. Amid tension between the couples, Joe and Melissa weren't in attendance when Teresa married Luis at the Park Chateau in East Brunswick, New Jersey, on Saturday, August 6.
While neither of them explained why the Gorgas skipped the nuptials, Joe appeared to hint at their conflict the night before the wedding. Seemingly shading "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star, he posted a photo with other relatives and friends on his Instagram Story. "Blood doesn't make you family," so he wrote in the caption.
Instead of attending Teresa's wedding, Joe and Melissa decided to have fun at the beach on the wedding day. Meanwhile, Teresa's fellow "RHONJ" castmates, including Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldschneider, were among the 220 guests at the ceremony.
At the wedding, Teresa's four daughters Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana, whom she shares with ex-husband Joe Giudice, were all there to support their mom. Joining them were Luis' two sons, David and Nicholas, from his previous relationship.
For the big day, the bride and the groom looked stunning in white. Teresa opted for a long, strapless white mermaid gown from Mark Zunino featuring a sweetheart neckline that she paired with white lace gloves. She completed her look with a crown made of diamonds. Meanwhile, Joe looked dapper in a white blazer, black pants and a classic black bowtie.
At the ceremony, which was officiated by Luis' sister Dr. Veronica Ruelas, the reality TV star walked down the aisle to violin players and "Ave Maria", a song chosen to honor her late parents. The couple's kids later joined them to light the ceremony's unity candles.
Of the wedding, a source previously shared, "Teresa is on cloud nine." The insider went on to say, "She wanted a fairy tale wedding and that is exactly what she is getting. Everything is being done with such precision to make this an unforgettable evening."
