The Blonde Salad blogger Chiara Ferragni tied the knot with Italian rapper Fedez (real name Federico Leonardo Lucia) in a lavish outdoor ceremony in Italy over the weekend. The couple, who share a 7-month-old baby boy named Leone, wed at the Dimora Delle Balze in Noto, Italy on Saturday. Fedez wore a Versace ensemble for the ceremony, while Chiara walked down the aisle in a gorgeous Dior Haute Couture dress which fused "Italian craft inspiration with French haute couture," according to Dior.
As she tied the knot, Chiara was surrounded by her bridesmaids, who wore pink eco-sustainable gowns designed by Alberta Ferretti.
Ahead of the wedding weekend, Vogue reports, the couple flew their loved ones to Sicily on private Alitalia flights adorned with their hashtag #TheFerragnez. Once they landed, guests were met by cartoon versions of Chiara and Fedez to kick off the celebrations. On the evening before the wedding, the couple held a rehearsal dinner, where Chiara stunned in a custom Prada design.
Following their wedding on Saturday, the bride changed from one Dior Haute couture dress to another (and then another!) for the reception. Things only continued to get more and more lavish as the night went on. The couple's reception included an amusement park where guests could ride a Ferris wheel and a carousel.
