Nicole Richie and Joel Madden finally tied the knot over the weekend. Apparently it was a star-studded event including Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale, Rachel Zoe and Ellen Pompeo...to name a few. Samantha Ronson served as a bridesmaid, which is just funny. Also photographed arriving to the party was an elephant. Noticeably missing from the elite guest list was Paris Hilton, Nicole's longtime friend and costar on The Simple Life. Sources say that the decision to leave Paris off the list was made after she was arrested for cocaine possession in Las Vegas. Weird, because that's about the same time I thought about inviting her to one of my parties. I don't know if it hurt Paris' feelings to not be invited, but when people start inviting elephants to events instead of you, it's time to rethink your game plan.
