Nick Lachey’s wedding
After getting separated from Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey married the VJ Vanessa Minnillo. The entire wedding was a four day affair and it took place on Sir Richard Branson’s private island, the Necker Island. The entire venue was beautifully decorated with flowers and there was a rehearsal dinner before the wedding day. The entire wedding venue was decorated with roses, cockscombs, tulips, dianthus and air plants. The long stretch of the tables, which were ready with placemats and napkins, were lined with lanterns all through, making the illumination look breathtaking. Vanessa Minnillio’s wedding dress was particularly an attraction of the wedding. It was designed by Monique Lhuillier and was a two piece dress unlike most other wedding gowns. It featured a delicately and finely embellished lace corset which was finely detailed with rose and crystal. The skirt was made of silk faille and the dress got a complete look with a bow belt.
