According to Us magazine, the ceremony was held at the top of a cliff overlooking the ocean on Necker Island. Minnillo reportedly walked down the aisle in a two-piece Monique Lhuillier gown, which featured an embellished lace corset and skirt made of silk faille. The couple, who got engaged last November, had cameras around to document their nuptials for a TLC special called, “Nick & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding,” which will air on July 30. It is the first marriage for Minnillo and the second for Lachey, who was previously married to Jessica Simpson.
