That was one great Saturday even by Texas standards as Dallas became the venue for the wedding of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and 2008’s Miss Missouri Candice Crawford. Us Weekly had the whole story from an inside source.
600 guests arrived for the wedding, among them R&B artist Ashanti and Kim Kardashian’s one-time boyfriend Miles Austin. They were received in an enormous white air-conditioned tent with a balcony that was also done in white. The trees around the tent carried strands of white lights.
Romo, 31, and Crawford, 24, had their own vows to make, and the insider said the bride was emotional and tearful throughout the ceremony. As soon as the solemn part was over, Black Eyed Peas’s “I Gotta Feeling” struck up. There was also a jazz band that poured forth popular tunes like “Beyond the Sea” and “I Get Lost,” and the quarterback’s teammates made the dancing floor a very hot place.
The dinner was graced by the playback of a video showing the groom proposing to the bride. As the local station WFAA-TV learned from wedding planner Todd Fiscus, there were short ribs on the menu and the guests had the run of a well-stacked pizza bar. But the real wonder of the wedding dinner was the wedding cake that was “almost as tall as the ceiling,” as the source told Us.
As for the turnouts, it was Badgley Mischka gowns for the bridesmaids, while the men sported custom made Dolce & Gabbana tuxedos – black pants and white jackets. A vintage Cadillac was waiting for the couple to take them away. The party broke up after two a.m.
The famous footballer hooked up with Candice Crawford, a former beauty queen and KDAF reporter, almost two years ago, and they had been engaged since December 2010. Candice is also sister to Chace Crawford of Gossip Girl; Chace was one of those toasting the duo at the rehearsal dinner, but she wasn’t heard on the Saturday party.
Romo’s romances involved actress Sophia Bush and Carrie Underwood; before he began dating Crawford he had had a high-profile affair with Jessica Simpson that he severed in July 2009 on the eve of the singer’s 29th birthday. Simpson is now engaged to footballer Eric Johnson (since last November, within days of her former husband Nick Lachey’s engagement to Vanessa Minillo, crowning their four-year sporadic relationship).
