Joanna continues to gush about her big day saying, “I had a big smile on my face as I walked down the aisle. I was so shocked that I was not a bridezilla! But Romain—when I was walking down the aisle, the poor guy started feeling dizzy and sick. He almost fainted!”
The poolside, California ceremony is dubbed as a “million dollar wedding”, but Joanna maintains that it still had a fun, and not too serious vibe. “We didn’t want to make the wedding too serious. In my vows I said, ‘Even though most of our friends think we’re a little crazy because we can go from hot to cold in 20 seconds, the one thing they can’t deny is that it’s true love and we don’t pretend to be something we’re not,” explains Joanna.
The wedding still had it’s share of tears, though! Joanna admits that Romain choked while reading his vows and the officiant had to read them for him, because he just lost it. And after all their drama last year, as seen on RHOM, and a brief break up, it made the wedding that much more meaningful to them.
Joanna reveals, “He’s the only person in the world that I would even give a second chance to. After everything that happened last year with the emails, kind of giving him the benefit of the doubt that nothing more happened… He’s the only one. Normally I’d walk out the door.”
As for her wedding guests, sister Marta and co-star Lisa Hochstein were bridesmaids. Alexia partied the night away. Joanna says, “Usually she’s the first to go, but I guess she was having so much fun dancing her butt off that night. We weren’t done till 3, 3:30 a.m. Alexia is a person I definitely see myself getting closer with as a friend as time goes by.”
Adriana de Moura, who Joanna exchanged blows and verbal attacks with, was invited and Joanna reveals that she “shockingly” behaved at the wedding. Interesante!
After all the craziness, Joanna admits she had a happy ending! “And hopefully in the next two to three years we’ll have kids. I mean, he wants to have them sooner—so I guess that will be another challenge!” admits the model.
The new RHOM season will air in August and will of course show the wedding and all that lead up to it! Do you think Joanna and Romain are in it for the long run? Are you looking forward to seeing their journey to the altar on season three?
