Nicole Richie and Joel Madden Tie the Knot

The father of the bride, Lionel Richie, hosted the wedding at his 28-room Los Angeles estate as Nicole Richie, 29, married musician Joel Madden, 31, after four years and two kids together.

Guests included Gwen Stefani, Ashlee Simpson, Kris Jenner and the groom's twin brother, Benji Madden (Joel's Good Charlotte bandmate), as well as one very unexpected guest: Before the ceremony, reports, a trained elephant was seen being led onto the grounds -- where large white tents had been set up amid the estate's gardens. There's been no word yet on how exactly the pachyderm participated in the nuptials.

The weather was warm, the guest list was around 130, and the bride reportedly went with a Marchesa gown and Neil Lane ring. "They wanted an Old Hollywood, glamorous feel to their wedding," says an inside source. "Nicole wanted a memorable, elegant affair for only their closest friends and family on their special day."

The couple have been together since 2006, and are raising two children together: daughter Harlow, 2, and son Sparrow, 1. "Nicole and Joel are the perfect example of the kind of parent I want to be one day," doting uncle Benji Madden told PopEater earlier this year.

The newlyweds announced back in February that they were engaged, and the bride celebrated a bachelorette party with friends (including Sam Ronson and Christina Aguilera) in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in September.
