NFL Legend Jerry Rice Marries Latisha Pelayo in Napa Ceremony
The pair got married after over a decade together
After over a decade together, Jerry Rice and Latisha Pelayo are married!
The couple tied the knot at Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley on Sunday, exchanging vows by the beautiful lake on-property, PEOPLE confirms.
Guests then enjoyed cocktails in the vineyard, while a mariachi band played. During the reception, guests dined on the lawn by candlelight, with a jazz trio offering up sweet serenades. Finally, the couple’s friends and family moved into Calistoga Ranch’s wine cave to cut Rice and Pelayo’s four-tier wedding cake and eventually dance the night away.
The cave was decorated by custom scented candles made by Pelayo’s sister, who owns company Fiamma Candle. The happy day was produced and planned by Emily Coyne Events in conjunction with Alexis Raine Events, and captured by photographer Julie Kay Kelly.
The couple’s dreamy florals were designed by Pico Soriano Designs.
In video footage of the sweet proposal obtained by TMZ Sports, Rice was shown standing at the podium at the event with Pelayo standing off to his left.
“I have four words that I want to say to her. That I want to say to this woman that has supported me for so many years,” Rice said at the time. “Latisha … will you marry me?”
Rice was previously married to Jacqueline Bernice Mitchell. The couple divorced in December 2009 and share three children together.
