In “headlines no one would have predicted five years ago” news, The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Danielle Staub got married in the Bahamas on Saturday, and her former table-flipping arch nemesis Teresa Giudice served as matron of honor!
Us Weekly got the ceremony deets and reveal that 55-year-old Danielle and fiance Marty Caffery tied the knot in a sunset beach ceremony on the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. As Danielle previously revealed, Teresa was joined in the bridal party by Danielle’s daughters Christine and Jillian Staub as maids of honor with RHONJ co-stars Melissa Gorga and Margaret Josephs serving as bridesmaids. Danielle also previously revealed that there would be roughly 12 more in the wedding party in addition to those names I have listed.
Us Weekly reports that Danielle wore a Pnina Tornai wedding gown and that the reality star was nervous prior to her third trip down the aisle. “It’s different when you’re a girlfriend, and then it’s different when you’re a fiancée, the stages are all different,” Danielle told the site hours before the ceremony. “When it gets real, and we did our rehearsal last night, and we did our fake I do’s, it’s like, oh my God, we’re almost married,” she added. “This is happening I felt like, when I saw his family last night for the first time after our rehearsal, on the beach, I felt them looking at me like I was a wife. And to me, and my daughters, looking at him like he is my husband. And I think it definitely made it super profound for me.”
As far as Danielle Staub wedding photos, it looks like fans will have to wait a bit. I assume that Us Weekly will have the exclusive and will be posting them shortly, so be sure to stay tuned for those!
Meanwhile, some of Danielle’s wedding guests have been sharing photos from their mini Bahamas vacay, including this wonderful shot posted by Teresa Giudice of her daughter Audriana and another young girl in what I assume to be their wedding finery:
Danielle’s daughters Christine and Jillian also shared photos and brief videos from the night before and getting ready for the big day:
UPDATE – A couple more photos from Christine wearing what I assume is her bridesmaid dress:
Prior to the wedding, Melissa Gorga shared a snap sporting a fun pineapple swimsuit:
Gorgageous as usual! And here’s Melissa with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice:
But, back to Danielle and Marty. Congratulations to the husband and wife! Danielle has famously been engaged 20 times, but it looks like Number 20 might very well be the last. ? Bravo cameras were reportedly filming the ceremony (of course), so hopefully we will get to see it all on screen soon when Danielle returns for RHONJ Season 9.
And speaking of seeing it all on screen, I will honor Cinco de Mayo with a muy caliente adios courtesy of Danielle and her sexy boudoir lingerie photo shoot she had done for her fiance Marty last week:
