Fans of two black reality stars will be relieved to know that the first pictures of their nuptials have been released. Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco wed July 4 in St. Maarten with 150 of their closest family and friends in attendance. As previously reported, Ochocinco live tweeted during the ceremony even remarking that he was “breathing like a pregnant lady in lamaze class” and noting that Lozada had three dress changes. Early Wednesday, Lozada took to her EvelynLozada.com blog to share the first photos from her wedding that included a series of Ines Di Santo gowns. “I’m thrilled to share a sneak peek into my wedding from US Weekly magazine that took place on the 4th of July!,” wrote Mrs. Chad Johnson. “It was simply amazing and one of the best days of my life! I wish all of you guys could have joined us in person, however, you will have your chance this fall to catch every detail!”
She also thanked a number of people specifically, including the designer of her wedding dresses and the person who designed her ring. The basketball wife-turned-football wife also mentioned a small natural disaster that took place just before her ceremony. “Thank you again to Diann Valentine (wedding coordinator), Ines Di Santo (wedding dress designer), Jason Sky (catsuit designer), Jason of Beverly Hills (ring designer), Le Chateau des Palmiers resort, my wonderful family, close friends, guests and glam squad that made this day so memorable!,” she wrote. “Oh…let’s not forget about the earthquake 30 minutes prior to me walking down the aisle…LOL!” “Love you all, but I love my husband more! :),” she wrote in closing.
While Evelyn focused on donning different dresses, her new husband was spotted during the ceremony wearing a custom pair of gold-encrusted Christian Louboutin shoes. On their wedding day when asked by a fan what shoes he was wearing for the occasion, the proud shoe collector wrote, “Here they are” and posted the following photo.
