After 10 years of dating, Real Housewives Of Dallas star LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin got married on Saturday.
The longtime couple were wed at the Cathedral of Hope in front of family, friends, and LeeAnne’s costars.
LeeAnne, 51, walked down the aisle in a custom white gown by Texas-based designer Nardos Imam of NARDOS Design. Rich, 54, wore a custom black tux by Don Morphy Prive Clothiers.
This is LeeAnne’s first marriage and Rich’s third. He has a 20-year-old daughter, Elise, from a previous relationship.
Rich proposed to LeeAnne at theTexas State Fair in Dallas last October, where LeeAnne discovered a 10 carat ring (a marquise cut diamond with two diamonds on either side to symbolize each of their hearts) behind a red balloon in a balloon pop game.
“It was the happiest carnival prize ever I had no clue. Honestly, Rich surprises me every single time that he does something over-the-top, romantic and kind. I’m always like, ‘Wow your heart has such a huge capacity for love.’ The whole thing really just blew me away. I’m incredibly lucky,” Leanne told People Magazine.
“The wedding, I’m going to keep simple in the cathedral. Because I want to be respectful. But then the reception, I want to be a big celebration. I want to do flower walls with neon signs in them for social media pictures. We’ve started going through a bunch of stuff. Napkins, silverware, personalized wine bottles — just different stuff. I want it to be such a fabulously fun party,” LeeAnne said in April.
On why she chose an April date for their wedding:
“It signifies rebirth. It’s when spring comes and all of the flowers are blooming. It’s when all the dogwoods are in bloom. To me it’s a signal of God saying, ‘Life goes on. Here’s the beauty of life’. So April’s a month that’s always been precious to me.”
