Tony Romo Marries Candice Crawford

Posted on May 29, 2011 by

It seems there’s always a wedding to report come Sunday and this week is no different.

People is reporting that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and Candice Crawford were married on Saturday evening at Arlington Hall in Dallas in front of a reported 600 guests.

Romo, who is also famous for being one of Jessica Simpson’s exes, married Crawford in front of a number of Cowyboys players, including: Troy Aikman, Roger Satubach, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, as well as the team’s owner, Jerry Jones.

Crawford, who is a pageant queen, an anchor for KDAF-TV in Dallas and the younger sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, began dating Romo shortly after he split from Simpson in 2009.  The couple became engaged in December when a 31-year-old Romo proposed to Crawford on her 24th birthday, with an 8-carat yellow diamond engagement ring, which featured a ring of 1-carat diamonds around the centre stone.

Of the wedding, one of People’s sources said “It was perfect! From the ceremony in beautiful white, to a vibrant after-party and great music selected by Tony himself.”

And with a reception menu including such items as short ribs and pizza, Romo no doubt kept all his football player pals happy. Out-of-town guests were also accommodated with expensive gift bags including: A Neiman Marcus gift card, assorted treats from Great One Cookies, a Mix of the Month CD by DJ Lucy Wrubel, a miniature bottle of Moet champagne, a box of Dude Sweet Chocolates, gourmet popcorn, chips and salsa, “Killer Pecans” from Bandera Foods, Voss bottled water, and an assortment of Kiehl’s beauty and body products.

Talk about a loot bag. Congratulations to the newlyweds.
