Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer. For New York Giants middle linebacker Antonio Pierce and his lady love, Mets Weekly host Jocelyn Maldonado, the holiday also marked the start of their new life together as husband and wife. On May 24, 2008, as the sun began to descend on south Maui, the bride clutched a bouquet of white orchids and peach-petaled roses and began her walk down the aisle.
According to InStyle Weddings, the bride chose a white chiffon gown designed with an intricately detailed bodice and a plunging neckline, its pristine beauty enhanced with the addition of the white flowers that adorned her upswept hair, while the groom opted for a beige suit paired with a white shirt sporting a stand up collar. The couple’s happiness was captured for posterity by photographer Eric Lamph, who also immortalized the I do’s of National Geographic Explorer host Lisa Ling and Paul Song in 2007.
