Sofia Vergara & Joe Manganiello got married in Palm Beach, Florida on Sunday


Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello got married on Sunday in Palm Beach, Florida. If I’m being honest, I’m a little bit surprised that the wedding went off without a hitch. I expected them to have the big wedding of course, but I thought there would be more drama around it. But it seems like Joe was marrying his dream girl and Sofia was marrying the only boyfriend she’s had in a decade who isn’t bothered by the fact that she’s a big deal. There are two things that make me love Sofia and Joe’s wedding: one, they weren’t stingy with the social media photos at all (Sofia Instagram’d everything) and two, they asked for charity donations in lieu of wedding gifts. That, to me, is classy, especially from rich Hollywood people.

It’s official: Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are married! The gorgeous couple tied the knot Sunday during a romantic wedding at The Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida. The ceremony began at 7 p.m. in front of gathered guests, which included Vergara’s Modern Family costars, Reese Witherspoon and Channing Tatum.

Vergara, 43, who recently admitted she had a little bit of “bridezilla” in her and is very detail-oriented, pulled out all the stops for the nuptials. The festivities included a weekend full of fun, including a pool party, a sumptuous rehearsal dinner and a pre-wedding bash that included Manganiello serenading his bride-to-be with “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”

At the Sunday ceremony, Vergara wore a custom Zuhair Murad Couture design as she walked down the aisle. The ceremony was indoors, inside a small area decorated with white roses, orchids and hydrangeas. The actress went without a veil and carried a bouquet of orchids.

Instead of exchanging the typical “I dos,” the couple instead said “I will” in front of a minister and members of the wedding party read passages from the Bible in both Spanish and English. Vergara and Manganiello also recited their own vows. The emotional ceremony included a lot of laughter and happy tears from the guests.

Additionally, in lieu of gifts, the couple asked guests to send a donation to one of two charities close to their hearts: St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital.

[From People]

The Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital is for Joe – he grew up in Pennsylvania. As for the bride’s custom Zuhair Murad… the silhouette is basically the same as half of her red carpet gowns, but that’s what she’s comfortable in, so God bless. She looked very pretty! Congrats, Sofia and Joe!

    Love it, for a Hollywood couple they seem the be genuinely happy 🙂

    • GlimmerBunny says:

      Yeah, I think they are perfect for each other. Hot, fun and sort of dumb. She makes a beautiful bride.

      • joan says:

        Their choices were all surprisingly HUMAN, elegant but warm. They seem like real people instead of media constructs.

      • Katie says:

        Why are they dumb? He is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon, has written a couple of books and directed a documentary that was nominated for an Oscar.

        She was at university studying to be a dentist when she got a job on Univision.

    • minx says:

      I think they’re adorable together.

    • jenben says:

      They really do look happy together, don’t they? I hope they last. In other news, her dress reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. Gorgeous!

    • SnarkySnarkers says:

      She looks beautiful! I live about an hour north of Palm Beach and was at The Breakers a few weekends ago. It is a gorgeous resort but while I was sitting at the pool area I noticed a little mouse who kept sneaking out of the bushes to steal crumbs. I think they must have a major rodent problem if the mouse was boldly doing this in broad daylight. I was not staying there just visiting a friend who was, I think rooms start at around $600 per night. Its kind of funny to me that such a prestigious, luxury resort has a rodent problem.

    • Pmnichols says:

      Agree! Love it, love them. Bless them both. Cheers to years of happiness.

    • Priya says:

      Good looking and lovely seeming couple! Mazel Tov!

    • Anna says:

      I agree. They are very well matched. Everyone describes her as such a loving person and he seems so chill. Cancer-Capricorn match made in heaven. I see them together for a long time, if not forever…

  2. Dtab says:

    Meh…I could take the dress or leave it. She does absolutely look stunning, but for custom made its a bit too much. I presume that the outer skirt is detachable and leaves something more comfortable to party in.

    I love the idea of the charitable donations as gifts, well done on that.

    • Livealot says:

      I used to be obsessed with these type of wedding gowns.

    • Snappyfish says:

      Same dress she wears to award shows. This one in bridal white with detachable skirt/train. She is lovely but would like a different silhouette once & awhile. I love the charitable gifts. They do seem genuinely happy together & that is nice.

  3. Keddie says:

    They look so happy in those photos and are obviously so excited to be married! I saw them on her Facebook page and they brightened my day, reminding me of my own wedding and the joy and excitement of the day 🙂

    • Mimz says:

      Yes they look ecstatic! And There is an instagram video going around of Joe singing to her and i thought it was super cute.
      I’m happy for them!!


  4. BendyWindy says:

    I love her bouquet.

  5. Loopy says:

    Refreshing to see people actually marrying their age mates.

  6. Belle Epoch says:

    I hope Nick Loeb will leave her alone now!

    • SamiHami says:

      Sadly this will probably ramp up the crazy more. I just hope the judge throws out his ridiculous lawsuit.

  7. Pinky says:

    She wouldn’t have to be manhandling herself if she ever wore a properly fitted bodice or, God forbid, a shoulder strap! But I digress. Congrats to the happy couple (and some other guy’s embryos).

    No. Just congratulations. I like them as a couple.

  8. Maya says:

    They look gorgeous and happy

  9. Toot says:

    They look happy. Congrats! Sweet that she had her son walk her down the aisle.

  10. Lilacflowers says:

    Happy for them and wish them well. A few months ago, when they were in Boston for her son’s college graduation, we sat at the table next to theirs during brunch. She had a large family group with them and he seemed extremely comfortable with her family and the two of them looked really happy together – and, of course, they were stunning.

    • Snazzy says:

      That’s so cool! They do seem like they really care for each other, and I can imagine even in person they look amazing together. Happy for them as well 🙂

    • mia girl says:

      I love celebrity proximity stories!
      They must have been gorgeous in person.

    • bellenola says:

      Is he hot or what? I saw him sitting alone once at The Columns Hotel in NOLA back in the day and it took all my strength not to tackle him then and there.

    • Sass says:

      Where are pictures of Joe’ s family? Haven’t seen any of the groom’s side in all the pictures so far?

  11. MrsBPitt says:

    I have to admit, I didn’t think this wedding would happen. She got with Joe, right after dumping a guy she had a long term relationship with. I figured, Joe was just her rebound guy, but they look very happy! Sofia looks gorgeous, and the wedding sounds like it was heartwarming, but fun…Congrats, to the happy couple!

    • Eleonor says:

      The first impression people can get after seeing someone who was in a longterm relationship starting a new one immediately after can be “rebound story”,sometimes longterm relationship can be over much before people think. In my experience one of the two of the couple might have moved on before calling it quit, and can be ready to start all over again.

    • Kori says:

      Seeing what a dickhead Nick Loeb has turned out to be, maybe the contrast was so great that she realized that *this* is what being in a relationship with a decent guy who dotes on her is like. I have the feeling it was a huge refreshing change for her.

      • Eleonor says:

        That helps a lot !!!

      • Anna says:

        Yes…and she, being a Cancerian, may have spent way too long trying to take care of Loeb-douche, hoping for the best, hoping it could be fixed. I am so happy for her to have found someone who loves her so much and just fits her well, appreciates who she is as a person… It is really so sweet. It gives me hope of finding my “person” someday, too…

    • Isabelle says:

      They really match each other. Similar personalities, not brainiacs, fun not serious people. Her former fiancé seemed too serious and controlling for her.

  12. Shambles says:

    At first I was like “WHAT?!” Because I forgot they were even together
    And then I was like, “somewhere Kylie Jenner is admiring this beautifully played PR stunt”
    But then I realized that she looks genuinely happy and I have a soft spot for Sofia, so in the end if she’s truly in love with the man… I say good for them. Twue Wove, and all that

  13. Lindy79 says:

    I love that she instagramed it, and probably that means they haven’t sold photos. They both look very happy.

  14. Chloe says:

    Congrats to them, the dress is pretty, though I’m not a fan of the sweetheart neckline.

  15. Lucy2 says:

    I originally thought it was all just PR, but they went through with it it had a beautiful wedding, so congrats to them!
    I love that they asked for charity donations instead of gifts.

  16. snowflake says:

    I think they’ll make a good couple. He seems pretty laid back. She seems high maintenance but he seems cool with it.

  17. byland says:

    That dress is a disaster. Holy hips, Batman. The photo with her son is cute, though. She always seems very proud of him, which is lovely to see.

    Also, nitpicky I know, but Sweet Child ‘O Mine? I always side-eye anyone who tossed that song into the mix. Axl Rose wrote that song as an apology to his girlfriend for beating her. What about that is romantic?

    • LAK says:

      Yep, yep and YES!!!!

      I was a huge G n R fan back in the day, but I couldn’t and I can’t listen to that song knowing what it’s about.

      • byland says:

        Thank goodness it’s not just me, then. I admit to NOT being a Guns n Roses fan at all, but I don’t recoil in horror when their other songs come on the way I do with that one. I mean, he forced her to marry him by threatening to kill himself if she refused to do so that very day. Again, what in the world about that is romantic?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Long time GNR fan…I had no idea what that song was about! Of course I was like 8 when it came out, so maybe that is why I just thought it was a typical relationship song.

  18. Esmom says:

    I’m not really a fan of either of them, although I loved her in earlier seasons of MF before her schtick wore thin for me. But these photos melt my cold, black heart, sweet and heartwarming.

    • Nicolette says:

      Me too. And I love that they asked for donations towards children’s charities instead of gifts. She looks gorgeous but then again she always does.

  19. SusanneToo says:

    Best wishes to them. They both seem very nice. And that gross ex of hers should just go away.

  20. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Congratulations. I hope they’re very happy. Hate the dress, but she looks pretty anyway.

  21. Div says:

    Aw, they look happy. I think the dress is kind of a pageant queen look but that is her style and she loves it.

  22. Hannah says:

    Aw yay! I love these two. He’s a huge wrestling fan (as am i) and I love it when I catch sight of her at live events all super glam getting in to the matches and chants as much as anyone else.

  23. Jayna says:

    I love the first photo of them. They look so happy.

  24. SamiHami says:

    Such a pretty bride! It looks like a beautiful wedding.

  25. Sara says:

    That wedding venue looks so generic and blah, like it was in the conference room of a Marriott. But that’s pretty much their aesthetic anyway.

  26. Phoebe says:

    I hope they did a recreation of his wedding themed stripping part at the end of Magic Mike XXL- that was super hottt! A tad too many flowers there for my taste and I’d be all in on that dress if that bottom piece went all the way around, it looks like the top might be a separate piece as well, but the lace design is gorg! Good luck to them!

  27. Tiffany says:

    I follow Sofia on IG and it looked like it was just a good time. Girl was burning up the dance floor.I like to see weddings were the guests are just having a good time.

  28. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    I’ve come to really love Sofia. She just seems so down to earth. I find her very refreshing. They seem like a genuinely happy, madly in love couple so good for them!

    I also think it is amazing that she posted pictures on her Instagram. That has to be a first for Hollywood. Most celebs keep everything top secret and then sell the pictures and their story. I didn’t know about them asking people to donate to St. Jude’s or Children’s in Pittsburgh but as a ped’s nurse I think that is a beautiful thing!!!

  29. WTF says:

    I’m indifferent about the wedding gown, but I just came to post about this red carpet look. Her body is the TRUTH.

    • fiona says:

      Love Sofia Vergara, I really hope this works out for them. Ugh, if another hollywood husband leaves his wife for another 24 year old… So sick of seeing these pathetic men. At least go for someone age appropriate. Hope she stays in the spotlight and doesn’t disappear soon.

      • Daria Morgendorffer says:

        Totally agree. I don’t see him leaving her–he seems to worship the ground she walks on.

  30. Liz says:

    Her dress is lovely and they both look so happy.

  31. Paris says:

    He looks like Foghorn Leghorn.

  32. Rockin Robin says:

    I LOVE that dress on her! Happy for this sexy couple!

  33. Andrea says:

    I like the wedding gown and they look so happy together—so refreshing to see people marry someone of a similar age ESPECIALLY in hollywood.

    That being said, I never cared fro him lookswise (on True Blood I preferred Skarsgard or Anna Paquin’s husband) and I have heard he is a bit of a jerk in real life. maybe what I read was wrong, I hope so for her sake since she is free from that last jerky ex.

  34. Lou says:

    This seems to be a very rushed into marriage…..

    • Andrea says:

      I think when you reach your 40’s, why wait? You’ve each already had a lot of lovers/exes etc, especially if you haven’t been married often (this is her second and his first). But yeah, you should be cautious if its #3-5 marriage LOL (yes, i’ve seen people’s parents/friends on that many).

  35. AB says:

    Congrats to the happy couple!!
    Kim K aka Kimbo and rest of the clan should take note, instead of being greedy share your joy with those in need..

  36. Sam H x says:

    I follow Sofia’s page on Facebook, there is a really sweet picture of Joe looking at Sofia during their first dance and he looked like a man in love. He adores the ground she walks on. His body language speaks volumes. I think they will last! The wedding looked like a lot of fun. The dress is very Sofia and the skirt was detachable.

  37. CuteC says:

    It is very classy regarding the donations. I love that they did that. My youngest son gets treatment at Children’s in Pittsburgh, and they are fantastic! We lived there for a month 2 years ago. Hearing that makes me so happy, and adore Joe more than I already do. Wishing a lifetime of happiness to this lovely couple.

    • Katie says:

      Children’s saved my sons life a few years ago and seeing all the work Joe does for them warms my heart.

      I wish we’d hear of more celebs asking for donations instead of gifts. My optimistic side is hoping that it happens and we just don’t hear about it!

      • CuteC says:

        That’s wonderful! They saved mine as well, after Akron almost killed him. I can’t say enough about how amazing CHP is. I really hope people donate. I do, and allowed my son’s story to be shared during their radiothon last year. The doctors go above and beyond for every kid, as do the nurses. I’m happy your little guy is ok too 🙂

  38. Stacey Dresden says:

    She officially has a super crazy mother in law!

  39. What's inside says:

    Best wishes for a long, happy marriage. She looked wonderful and Joe is hot. Together they make a very beautiful couple.

  40. MyLittlePony says:

    Yep, they are about the hottest couple ever. I really like her – she always seems so genuine and pretty, and oh boy Joe is hothothot!

  41. sauvage says:

    I have obviously never met them and, in all likelihood, never will, but when I read the announcement, I smiled from from the heart. I wish them all the best, and a long and happy life together. They look so happy.
