It was love-all Sunday evening, when American tennis player Mardy Fish married fiancée Stacey Gardner in Beverly Hills before 150 wedding guests.

Fellow pro tennis star James Blake served as a groomsman during the black-tie ceremony – which was held in the garden at the Four Seasons Hotel. Meanwhile, NBA star Kevin Garnett looked on from the crowd.

(Alas, Fish’s good friend Andy Roddick could not attend. He was busy playing – and winning! – in the finals of the China Open.)

Gardner, a model on TV’s Deal or No Deal, had six bridesmaids in black dresses. (The bash was overseen by wedding planner Linda Howard, from Sensational Celebrations, while Mark’s Garden provided the flowers.)

After the 30-minute Jewish ceremony, the couple walked back down the aisle hand-in-hand while wedding guests waved little sparklers and a live band played U2’s “Beautiful Day.”

They then headed to a reception in the hotel’s ballroom.
