Let those wedding bells ring! Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and beau Joe Manganiello tied the knot on Sunday after an 11-month engagement in front of a celebrity-packed congregation.
Excited to share her special moment, Sofia took to Instagram to share candid snaps of the celebrations. We loved seeing the shots of her 23-year old son who escorted her down the aisle filled with decadent blooms - and, of course, her dress!
But who was the designer? The bride called upon Zuhair Murad to design a custom gown featuring a structured bodice and full overskirt, which she paired with sparkling jewellery from celeb-favourite Lorraine Schwartz (Kim Kardashian and Blake Lively are also big fans.)
Guests partied all weekend with the couple (well, the actress did say she wanted "something really big"). Celebrations included a daytime poolside party on Saturday followed by a rehearsal dinner and raucous evening extravaganza where the groom serenaded Sofia with Guns'N'Roses Sweet Child O' Mine.
Congratulations to the newlyweds! OdC

Looks like it'll be a winter wedding for Sofia Vergara!
The Modern Family star and her actor fiancé, Joe Manganiello - who have been engaged for seven months - have finally set a wedding date.
According to a report from UsWeekly, the pair will say 'I do' on 22 November this year, in front of friends and family at Florida's luxurious Breakers Palm Beach resort.
The resort sits on 140 acres of plush land; its magnificent ballroom can accommodate up to 500 guests, perfect for Sofia, who told US TV channel Extra in March, "we want to do something really big!"
Among the celebrity guests expected to attend is Sofia's Hot Pursuit co-star Reese Witherspoon, who told Hello! magazine: "I gotta be there for my girl!" The Daily Mailspeculates that actors Channing Tatum and Stephen Moyer - along with various members of the Modern Family cast - will also be in attendance.
Earlier this week, the star quashed rumours that she'll be marrying in Ireland. Speaking to Irish Woman's Way magazine she said: "That's too far away. It would be beautiful but I want heat. I want sun. I'm Colombian and there is not too much of either in Ireland."
Well, with temperatures in Florida reaching 25C in November, sunshine is definitely on the cards!
Stay tuned for more Vergara-Manganiello nuptial news as the anticipated wedding date approaches… OdC

Here at Brides HQ we love a good proposal story. So when we heard how actor Joe Manganiello popped the question to fiancée Sofia Vergara in December, it made our hearts melt.
People reports that Joe told Monday's Live! TV hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan that he proposed to Sofia in her native language, Spanish.
"I had a big speech in Spanish, and that's what I was nervous about," the star said. "The last thing you want to do is like mess up the Spanish on the proposal to the Colombian woman."
The dreamiest part? Using the phrase "Eres mi todo," which Joe explained means "you are my everything" in English. *Swoon*
Despite the pressure of proposing in Spanish, Joe kept his cool; "I wasn't nervous that she was gonna say 'no,' I was pretty confident in that," he revealed. "You only get one chance to do it, and if you're gonna do it, you gotta do it right, so there's a lot of planning that goes into it."
What a romantic gesture! We're sure the big day itself will have plenty more swoon-worthy moments in store... SH

It's official: Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are soon to be Mr & Mrs!
No details have been released as to where and when the wedding will take place, but speaking to E! News at the Screen Actors Guild Foundation's Los Angeles Golf Classic event on Monday, Sophia revealed "it's going to happen soon."
The Modern Family star refused to give away the location however, telling the reporter that it will take place "very far away in a very secret place where nobody is going to find us."
She then joked: 'it's on a plane!' Well, you can't get more private than that!
On Wednesday, the actress was spotted in Beverley Hills, looking pensive as she left a jewellery shop on LA's Rodeo Drive. The Daily Mail has speculated that she may be wedding ring shopping for her upcoming nuptials to fellow actor Joe Manganiello.
The Magic Mike star proposed to Sofia on Christmas Day on holiday in Hawaii, presenting her with a $500,000 sparkler.
Here's hoping Sofia will share a picture of her wedding dress with us, if her Met Ball look is anything to go by- no doubt it will be stunning! OdC

Two unbelievably good-looking human beings cannot be so in love for nothing… Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and True Blood's Joe Manganiello are believed to be engaged!
Vergara was snapped wearing a rather dazzling sparkler on Christmas Eve.
The pair were in Hawaii to celebrate Manganiello's 38th birthday when she was pictured kissing her beloved, wearing a huge ring. So huge, in fact, that it will hold your attention away from Joe's perfectly sculpted abs. (Well, almost…)
Their engagement has yet to be officially confirmed, although E! News is convinced it's true.
People Magazine have reported that Joe proposed in their private suite. "The newly betrothed couple 'weren't seen around the hotel much on Christmas Day," said a source, "which many took to mean they were busy ... celebrating." Ahem. Yeah…
If the news is true, Sofia and Joe will no doubt make the most beautiful bride and groom! SR
