Brooklyn Decker: Marrying Young Runs in the Family

Originally posted 09/13/2010 09:30AM

By modern standards, Brooklyn Decker was on the young side when she walked down the aisle with Andy Roddick last year at age 22. But for both the bride and groom's families, there was nothing unusual about it.

"It wasn't weird for me," Decker tells the latest issue of Page Six Magazine. "My mom got married when she was 19, and my husband's parents got married young – in their 20s. And both sets of parents are still together. We're so lucky. We had that influence around us, and basically, it came down to the fact that neither of us had to get married."

Miami Heat: Which Stars Will Clamor for Courtside Seats?

With basketball big shots Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh teaming up in Miami, fans can expect the games to pack a lot of heat. But it's not just the players that are bringing the sizzle.

Like the Los Angeles Lakers games on the West coast, Miami Heat games are star-studded events, known to bring out celebs like Kim Kardashian, Celine Dion and Beyoncé Knowles to courtside seats.

Plan on attending a Heat game? You may be sitting on the sidelines with J.Lo and Marc Anthony, who own a waterfront condo in Miami. Floridian Jimmy Buffett never misses a game – or a move – and he often gets floor seats, which makes him just as fanatical as Jack Nicholson at a Lakers game.

Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick's Costa Rican honeymoon may have ended, but the happy couple are still enjoying their newlywed phase.

Being married "is great. It's amazing," Decker, 21, told PEOPLE at the Costume Institute Gala Monday night at New York's Metropolitan Musuem of Art. Still, she adds, life after tying the knot on April 17 with tennis champ Roddick, 26, "feels the same. It's the same as being engaged, it's the same as dating."

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, who was escorted to the fete by designer Derek Lam, admits she has had at least one disagreement with her new hubby: What to wear to the Met. "He told me not to wear pants," Decker said, glancing down at her sequined Derek Lam pantsuit with a laugh. "But I wore them anyway. It's cold! I wanted to be comfortable but he said, 'You can't wear pants. It's the Met!' "

The Texas skies may have poured rain all day Friday, but that didn't dampen the anticipation of Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker leading into their wedding that night, pals of the newlyweds tell PEOPLE.

And the festivities spilled over into Saturday night, where the newlyweds partied with 250 guests at Stubb's Bar-B-Que, a large restaurant boasting live music in downtown Austin. A guest tells PEOPLE that the invitation specified a "denim-only" dress code, in keeping with the down-home atmosphere – though the groom wore cargo shorts while the bride sported a long dress.

The Spazmatics played till midnight, and the entire party danced and chowed down on brisket of beef and cole slaw as they ate on satin tablecloths decorated with lanterns and flowers.
