Andy Roddick & Brooklyn Decker marry in North Carolina


Tennis star Andy Roddick married model Brooklyn Decker on Friday in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I was really hoping the headline would be “Andy marries Brooklyn in Brooklyn”, but alas, a Southern wedding was in the cards. The couple met in 2007 when Roddick’s agent contacted her agent – how romantic. Not exactly a “cute meet” but they seem happy. Roddick proposed to Brooklyn about a year ago, and the couple didn’t seem to be in any rush to marry. Perhaps because they’re so young? Andy is 26 years old, and Brooklyn is 21. US Magazine has more:

Tennis player Andy Roddick is officially off the market. The athlete, 26, wed his longtime girlfriend, Sports Illustrated model Brooklyn Decker, 21, in an intimate ceremony Friday evening, has confirmed.

“It was really simple but beautiful,” a source tells Us. “Just close friends and family.”

Roddick and Decker exchanged platinum wedding bands by Tiffany & Co. during the ceremony, which included a performance by Elton John.

The nuptials were intended to be low-key without “a big Hollywood crowd as [Andy and Brooklyn are] not like that,” a source told Us prior to the event.

News of the Friday ceremony was first reported last week by the New York Post, who said Decker celebrated her upcoming wedding with bridesmaids during “a big bachelorette weekend” on April 11 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

“They just bounced around and had a great time,” added the paper.

The couple met in 2007 when Roddick asked his agent to contact Decker’s agent after seeing her in SI. He proposed to Decker in March 2008 but said they weren’t in any rush to walk down the aisle.

“With their hectic travel schedules, Andy and Brooklyn plan to enjoy their engagement,” said a statement posted on their Web site.

Sounds like a nice wedding. But what’s with celebrities never releasing information about the food, my favorite part of any wedding article? Anyway, they’re both very cute and wholesome-looking, and it’s the first marriage for both. Previously, Roddick dated the equally cute and wholesome-seeming Mandy Moore – if I remember correctly, I believe their managers set them up too. Does Andy not believe in meeting women in bars?

Though it has nothing to do with their wedding, this photo was way too cute to pass up: here’s Brooklyn and her adorable bulldog at the 8th Annual Andy Roddick Tennis exhibition at the Boca Point this summer. Images thanks to .

    Cute and wholesome = euphemism for boring?

    How bizarre! I dreamt last night he got married and andy roddick isn’t even on my radar he just happened to be in a commercial with the sleepy man (Bill Kurtis) right before bed. I hear Bill Kurtis I fall asleep.
    Kaiser in my version he wore a white suit with trademark backwards white hat. She was body painted and covered in sand. They got married on the front steps of a church but then ate food standing up a la backyard bar-be-que on the tennis court that was where the parking lot should be. Don’t know what they ate but recall seems to say finger foods. No sporks no napkins. lol

    That is a cute puppy!

    Seriously? Andy Roddick and Elton John were in Chapel Hill?? I live in Chapel Hill and they totally evaded us!

  4. rbsesq says:

    Can you really say “longtime girlfriend” when they dated for less than two years before getting married?

    Agree, Lem. Love that puppy!

  5. lynn says:

    they did not get married in NC – she had her bachelorette party there. they got married in austin, texas.

  6. Banana says:

    I think he meets women in bars, the relationships just don’t last more than a night

  7. Rebecca says:

    I don’t know where you got your story from, but they were married at Roddick’s home in AUSTIN, TEXAS!!!

  8. I Choose Me says:

    @ Rebecca. Kaiser got it from US Magazine like it says in the article above.

  9. maria says:

    Rebecca is right.They did not get married in Chapel Hill. Check the original US Magazine story – they got their info from NY Post, who reported it correctly that they were married at Andy’s house in Austin.

    Gorgeous couple and they’re going to have gorgeous kids!

    Wholesome does NOT equal boring!

    Sorry if some of us would rather have relaxing days tanning and going to the dog park instead of whoring it up at a nightclub like many other models/starlets.

  11. ash says:

    o.m.g. give me that dog I want it, I want it! It’s adooooorable.

  12. Annie says:

    I too, am a sucker for brindle bulldogs. They’re just so silly and cute, with their overbites. *dognaps*

    BTW. I have to note, I had to look this girl up to figure out who she is and man, the pictures you chose do NOT do her justice Kaiser. I was thinking she was some plain jane or something and wow, I will give credit where credit is due. Girl is dropdead.GORGEOUS.

  13. cherryblossom says:

    Aww. =(
    In that header Brooklyn looked kinda like a man, so I got all excited,you know “Whoo Hoo! A married gay athelete!” But no.

  14. Wow says:

    Don’t think that’s Brooklyn in the pup picture. Or I should say it doesn’t look like her.

    They seem like anokay couple, but I think this one will go the way of Andre Agassi’s marriage to Brooke Shields. I’m sure Andy is serious, but this girl is only 21.

    Best of luck to them though.

  15. Audrey O says:

    They married in Austin Texas at his house.

  16. Trish says:

    Andy has the most AWESOME hairy chest I have ever seen! I always hated it when he shaved but lately he has let it grow in. Love it when the guy has a baby face but lots of chest hair!
