Fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni’s weekend wedding to Italian rapper Fedez was nothing short of spectacular. From the glamorous rehearsal dinner to guests arriving on private planes to three custom Dior gowns, the 31-year-old founder of The Blonde Salad pulled out all the stops for her special day. And while it was a private affair, secrets from what could be the most extravagant celebrity wedding of 2018 have been shared by the bride and groom on social media.
The night before they walked down the aisle at a 19th-century castle in Noto, Italy, Chiara and Fedez, born Frederico Leonardo Lucia, hosted a rehearsal dinner at Palazzo Nicolaci. The bride-to-be looked wedding-ready in a beaded cocktail dress gifted to her by Miuccia Prada. The pink gown featured a floral motif and glittery golden v-neck.
Guests, who were flown into Sicily on private Alitalia flights, were greeted on the tarmac by custom mascots dressed as the bride and groom. The fun-loving duo branded their wedding #The Ferragnez and made sure to personalize every detail, including on-board drinks and snacks.
The groom, who released his first album in 2011, proposed to Chiara at one of his concerts in 2017. While waiting for his bride, Fedez, dressed in custom Valentino, posed with his loving parents.
For her walk down the aisle, the fashion influencer wore her first of three custom haute couture Dior gowns. The lace and tulle creation, reminiscent of Grace Kelly's iconic wedding gown, was designed by Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri and fused "Italian craft inspiration with French haute couture for a restyle that is both definitively contemporary and timeless," according to the French fashion house. Chiara completed her look with a cathedral-length veil and personalized white shoes emblazoned with “J’adior” and “Chiara."

Chiara and Fedez seal their union with a kiss against a floral backdrop of white roses and hydrangeas. Floral and event designer Vincenzo Dascanio also created a bespoke bridal bouquet made up simply of aster flowers.
The most important guest at the wedding was the couple's five-month-old son Leone, who looked adorable in matching Baby Dior. Here, they take an unforgettable family portrait at the altar.
Dior also created Chiara's second wedding look. The "dusky tulle evening gown" was designed to be a "testament to the [couple's] love story." The fashion house explains: "From an eye to a small lion, representing their son Leone, along with the lyrics of the song ‘Favorisca i Sentimenti’ written by Fedez, these delicate embroideries symbolically and romantically recount key moments in the young couple’s life."
