For some, the real news is that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden weren't already married, but the longtime couple and co-parents of two tied the knot last night at dad Lionel Richie's LA estate, reports E! Online. But at least there was an elephant, notes People. And a tabloid bidding war over the first photos. Richie and Madden "wanted an Old Hollywood, glamorous feel to their wedding," according to a source. No word on how the elephant fits in with "Old Hollywood."
