Former Dancing with the Stars contestant Chad Ochocinco married fellow reality star Evelyn Lozada in a July 4 celebration Wednesday in Miami – in what might be the most exhaustively documented wedding ever.

Cameras were on hand to film the nuptials for the upcoming VH1 reality show Ev and Ocho. And the Miami Dolphins player, 34, was also live-Tweeting before, during and after the ceremony, offering a play-by-play of events.

“Live tweeting from my wedding … should be a first I’m assuming, music is playing, can’t see my guests right now but they’re here,” he wrote on Twitter early in the evening.

He went on to describe his anxiety at the altar, his bride’s outfits and his peculiar position, late in the night, as the only sober person in a sea of drunken partiers.

“I don’t recall sending the butterflies in my stomach an invite … and why am I shaking like I’m in Alaska,” he wrote just before the vows. “What if @EvelynLozada is a runaway bride when I get out there and I’m stuck looking good all by myself … did I mention looking good?”

Soon, he added: “Here we go…. Proverbs 18:22… I love you guys… If I do it right the 1st time I won’t have to do it again.”

Hours later, he wrote: “Small issue, I’m the only person that didn’t/doesn’t drink alcohol n every 1 is wasted including my WIFE, can’t relate 2 this s–t, now what?”

Ochocinco and Lozada got engaged in 2010. She appeared on the VH1 reality show Basketball Wives. He searched for love on VH1’s The Ultimate Catch and partnered on DWTS with Cheryl Burke.
