Are Elephants The New Wedding Trend?
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden tied the knot this weekend, two kiddos and four years later. The two got hitched at Lionel Richie’s estate, and Nicole wore a strapless Marchesa get-up. While there’s no word on whether any dancing on the ceiling went down during the reception, there is one very curious element to the ceremony—apparently, a trained elephant was led into the proceedings. Which is interesting, because when Katy Perry and Russell Brand got married in October, their procession included two elephants.
Oh, and camels, horses and (naturally) a fortune-telling parrot. The old journalist’s adage is: two is a coincidence, but three is a trend. So I guess we’ll have to wait and see if elephants are the new Sylvia Weinstock wedding cakes for celebrity nuptials.
