The groom basically tweeted the entire event. “Using twitter as a diversion to keep me from getting nervous,” Ochocinco, 34, writes.
The reality stars were married in St. Martin – not in Miami as People originally reported. According to Ochocinco’s tweets, Lozada changed at least four times during the event.
Who attended the destination wedding?
Among the guests, were two women named “Cheryl.” Cheryl Burke, Ochocinco’s DWTS partner and Franklin, Ohio resident Cheryl Minton. Minton’s luck changed after telling Ochocinco on Twitter that she was feeling low after losing her husband just two weeks prior. In response, he invited her to the wedding. Aw.
Celebrity wedding planner Diann Valentine carried out the destination wedding. Valentine’s clients include Nas, Kelis, Usher and Toni Braxton.
A VH1 spokesperson confirms to Celebuzz that its cameras were there to shoot the nuptials for the couples’ upcoming reality series, Ev & Ocho, which premieres in September.
The couple was engaged in 2010. The new family will include Ochocinco’s four children, Jicyra, Chad II, Chade, Cha’iel and Lozada’s daughter, Shaniece.
