Eddie George, Tamara Johnson Wedding
Former Dallas Cowboys running back Eddie George and Tamara Johnson,
a singer in the group Sisters With Voices (SWV)
June 20, 2004
After a five-year courtship, the couple dedicated their
lives to one another with a recitation of self-penned vows at
the Rockleigh Country Club in Rockleigh, New Jersey.
The Ceremony: Although two chapels stand on the 12 acre grounds of the Rockleigh Country Club, the couple chose nature as their cathedral, declaring their devotion in the estate's garden. As the ceremony commenced a gentle breeze parted the pink curtains which separated the bride from the 400 guests in attendance, and Tamara began her walk down an aisle draped in blushing pink fabric as the sonorous voice of India.Arie singing "Beautiful Surprise" drifted in the perfumed air.
Clusters of peonies
adorned the stage where the football player presented his bride
with a wedding band to accompany a five carat engagement ring,
and before the minister pronounced the couple husband and wife
Tamara draped over the neck of the groom's young son a necklace,
upon which dangled a small ring-- a symbol of the ties that bind
this new family together.
Dress: Vera Wang, the queen of celebrity bridal attire,
created a white strapless gown embellished with beadwork across
the form-fitting bodice, which flowed into a bouffant skirt constructed
of tulle. A diaphanous veil attached to a dainty tiara completed
the sophisticated look.
Two young flower girls
in matching white dresses clutched in their tiny hands, which
were covered with white, opera-length gloves, pale pink purses
containing rose petals, while two older girls walked to the altar
in pink garments. All of the cherubic children donned crescent
headpieces in their hair, which was gathered together in loose
curls for the occasion.
The gallant groom
was decked out in an indigo silk tux designed by Eddie George's
personal tailor, Randolph Williamson.
