Sofia Richie married Elliot Grainge in Antibes, France, on Saturday. From the star-studded guests to the gown of the blushing bride, it was really fairytale-like.
The youngest daughter of the music legend Lionel Richie and the British music executive said “I do” in front of the star-studded crowd including Sofia’s sister, Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, and Cameron Diaz.
Now, let’s find out more about the man who took the 24-year-old model off the market.
Grainge is a record executive and the son of Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge. He was raised in the UK but after graduating in 2009 from Northeastern University in Boston, Grainge relocated to Los Angeles to be near his family and make a mark in the music industry – without his father’s help.
Elliot launched the 10K Projects record label in 2017 and according to Forbes, the label has had 18 gold and eight platinum and multi-platinum singles that have accumulated more than 22 billion streams.
Entertainment Tonight previously reported that Grainge and Richie were “friends for years” before they began dating in 2021. Grainge popped the question to Richie after a year of dating.
The model and socialite wore a custom wedding dress by Chanel, an haute couture halter gown embellished with white and iridescent beads, as she walked down the aisle with dad Lionel Richie by her side. The gown also had her “something blue” sewn into it —an “S&E” with the date underneath.

Ahead of her big day, she said “It is such magic. I honestly think Elliot is going to love it. He is my biggest cheerleader when it comes to anything I wear.” She jokingly concluded, “If he doesn’t cry, I’ll be very sad.”
The star-studded wedding guest list included her father Lionel Richie, sister Nicole Richie, Cameron Diaz, Benji Madden, and Joel Madden, as well as Paris Hilton and Carter Reum.
