With Nicole Richie and Joel Madden’s wedding imminent, RadarOnline.com has exclusive new details about the preparations for the wedding which is expected to occur this weekend at her father Lionel Richie’s Beverly Hills mansion.
Photos that surfaced Wednesday of Lionel’s backyard confirm RadarOnline.com’s previous tidbit that a stage has been built on top of the pool “so guests have more space to dance.”
RadarOnline.com has learned that the massive lighting structures surrounding the stage are part of an elaborate set up to ensure the party can continue into the evening hours! “It will be fabulous,” a source said, adding that the overall design of the event is still being kept under wraps. The lighting scheme “will be both indoor and outdoor.”
Two sources have said the event is being overseen by legendary celebrity events planner Mindy Weiss. When contacted by RadarOnline.com, Weiss’ office had no comment.
As of Wednesday, there were also large tents leading from the house to the expansive backyard of the estate. Security was also heightened as party preparations continued.
Despite the grand plans, a source promises it will be a smaller affair than many expect.
“She didn’t invite a bunch of her celeb friends,” the source revealed. “Nicole cut down the guest list because she didn’t want a huge wedding.”
On Thursday, Star Power Generators arrived at the property. The company has provided studio quiet generators to events like the Golden Globes, the Grammmys, and the Academy Awards.
