Tennis star Mardy Fish, who said goodbye to his single status back in April with a Las Vegas bachelor party attended by Andy Roddick, said hello to life as a married man on September 28, 2008. Taking place on the grounds of the Four Season’s Hotel in Beverly Hills, People magazine reported that six bridesmaids clad in stylish black dresses walked down the red rose petal-lined aisle ahead of Deal or No Deal model Stacey Gardner, whose body-conscious, mermaid-style silhouette showcased her sleek physique as she clutched her bouquet from Mark’s Garden and strolled past the 150 guests who stood in her honor.
Eighth ranked tennis ace James Blake, fulfilling his role as a groomsman, and Boston Celtics’ power forward Kevin Garnett were among those to bear witness to the half-hour Jewish ceremony (Andy Roddick, battling for victory in the finals of the China Open, was unable to attend). Their vows complete, the music of U2’s “Beautiful Day” captured to joy of the moment.
The engagement ring which Deal or No Deal model Stacey Gardner has worn since November 2007 can be seen in the following photo, which was taken just weeks before the wedding as she watched her fiance at the U.S. Open on September 1, 2008.
