Congratulations are in order, for Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte got married to former Playboy model Kayla Rae Reid in an intimate, outdoor wedding at Morrow Ranch, a private estate in Palm Springs, California. This is the second time the couple have exchanged vows! They first wed in early January, when they had a secret ceremony together in Gainesville, Florida.
The couple, who are already parents to 15-month-old son Caiden Zane exchanged vows in front of 100 of their closest friends and family on Sunday, according to People magazine.
“No matter what has happened, Kayla’s been there to pick me up,” Lochte says about his wife. “She’s just been there 100 percent and I owe everything to her.”
Their little one served as a ring bearer at the ceremony, even though the newlyweds had a civil ceremony earlier this year. The couple said that one of the main reasons they waited all this time to get married was so their son could be part of their big day, which was reportedly planned by Pure Lavish Events.
“Since we had Caiden, we both wanted him to be a part of [our wedding] in some way,” says Lochte. Adds Reid, who looked stunning in a Galia Lahav wedding gown: “We wanted Caiden to be old enough to walk down the aisle. One of our visions was to have him be able to be the ring bearer, so it’s perfect timing!”
It was reported that the wedding guests were apparently welcomed with shots of tequila poured into custom shot glasses, which also served as place cards. In order to create a “romantic” vibe, the couple chose to decorate their wedding venue with cappuccino roses, sunset roses and white roses, crystals and “lots of candles”.
The bride kept her makeup soft and natural for the D-Day, and finished it off with Tacori diamond earrings and her grandmother’s tennis bracelet. She had previously worn a Rime Arodaky at the rehearsal dinner. Lochte and Caiden, along with the other groomsmen, were dressed in custom Giorgio Verdi tuxedos for the wedding.
The swimmer announced his engagement to Reid in October 2016 after he surprised her with a private helicopter tour of Los Angeles. “We’re already married on paper, but for the past 20 days I’ve been getting nervous,” says Lochte, who chose John Legend‘s 'You & I' for their first dance. “We already know everything about each other, and now it’s time to celebrate!”
