Former Dancing with the Stars contestant Chad Ochocinco married fellow reality star Evelyn Lozada in a July 4 celebration Wednesday in Miami – in what might be the most exhaustively documented wedding ever.
Cameras were on hand to film the nuptials for the upcoming VH1 reality show Ev and Ocho. And the Miami Dolphins player, 34, was also live-Tweeting before, during and after the ceremony, offering a play-by-play of events.
"Live tweeting from my wedding ... should be a first I'm assuming, music is playing, can't see my guests right now but they're here," he wrote on Twitter early in the evening.

Chad Ochocinco needs a change of clothes for church.

If Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada ever seems like a handful, try two of her.
"Everyone says [my dog Pucci] is like me. She has this really strong personality," Lozada tells PEOPLE. "She's just very feisty, very playful. I thought that by now she would calm down, but no. She runs around the house at high speed and in circles."
A Mother's Day gift from fiancé Chad Ochocinco, Pucci has taken on some of the football star's traits, too.

NFL star Chad Ochocinco faced his most formidable opponent Saturday night – and it wasn't the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense.
After the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) challenged him to the standard 8-second ride at their Built Ford Tough event in Georgia Saturday night, the Cincinnati wide receiver accepted with all the cockiness fans would expect.
"The real question is not how long I can last on the bull, but how long the bull can last with me riding him," he Tweeted.
But when his 1,500-lb. foe Deja Blu bucked him off in just 1.5 seconds, Ochocinco had nothing but respect for the real cowboys.

Chad Ochocinco may have put a ring on model Evelyn Lozada's finger after just four months of dating. But don't expect their wedding to happen as quickly.
"He has four kids. I have one. We want to be engaged for at least a year and enjoy our time with our children, and then we're going to plan our wedding," Lozada told PEOPLE at Cosmopolitan's Fun Fearless Males of 2011 party in New York, where Ochocinco was honored.
And when they do start planning, they'll have to compromise on some things. "I want something small, even though he wants something big," Lozada says. "I want something intimate. I'm 35, and we have five kids together. I don't want anything over the top."
