Although their marriage did not stand the test of time, respect remains between Donald Trump and his former wife Ivana Trump, and on April 12, 2008 the mogul was among the 500 guests who gathered at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida as the socialite became the bride of Rossano Rubicondi.
Taking inspiration from his press-imposed moniker (“The Italian Stallion,”) the groom strode to his place to the strains of Bill Conti’s theme from Rocky, while the bride opted for the unabashedly romantic melody of Il Divo’s rendition of “Unchained Melody.” According to People magazine online, rays of sunlight danced on the pink diamonds of her Manolo Blahnik shoes, which carried the bride along the path leading to her love’s side. Although 500 guests looked on, the cluster of fragrant orchids and roses that draped over a 15-foot tall arch provided a touch of intimacy as Donald Trump’s sister(a federal judge who presided over the nuptials) pronounced the couple husband and wife.
Slipping out of her blush pink chiffon and gold Zuhair Murad wedding dress, the newly dubbed Mrs. donned another dress by the designer for the reception. Entertainment Tonight reports that the bride sparkled in a creation of pink beads and lace as she cut slices of a 600 pound, 12-foot tall, gold-gilded wedding cake.
The newlyweds will spend their first days of wedded bliss enjoying a honeymoon in the Maldives.
