Former NFL star Kerry Rhodes tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Nicky Whelan in Beverly Hills over the weekend. Go inside their nuptials…
Kerry Rhodes is officially a married man. The NFL star turned actor tied the knot to his girlfriend/Australian actress Nick Whelan in Beverly Hills. Now, the happily married couple is sharing flicks from their big day.
Kerry, dapper in Tom James, and Nicky, rocking J’Aton Couture, said “I Do” at the Beverly Hills Hotel during a lavish ceremony surrounded by family and friends.
“We love the tradition of marriage, and we love being able to call each other husband and wife,” Nicky told PEOPLE. “We both understand that our relationship takes work, and we made a choice that that’s what we are wanting. Both of our parents are still together, and so we have been around a very traditional environment our whole lives. We want to carry that through.”
The couple’s wedding ceremony came complete with a three-tier cake from friend Cake Boss Buddy Valastro‘s Carlo’s Bakery; his-and-hers rings from Rafaello & Co., the same jewelers who crafted Wheelan’s 6.5-carat engagement ring; bridesmaids dresses by Amsale; and flower arrangements from Petals LA.
To keep everyone fully engaged, the couple had everyone’s cell phones confiscated so guests could enjoy every moment from the ceremony and reception. “The best thing we did was not allowing iPhones into the wedding,” Nicky said. “It was amazing to watch everyone get up and communicate and dance — not one person was looking down all night. It really proved about point about how incredible people are when they come together and don’t have their cell phones.”
Congrats to them.
So much for these rumors…
