LeeAnne Locken, the explosive personality on Bravo's Real Housewives of Dallas, is married. She wed longtime partner Rich Emberlin on April 27 in Dallas.
Locken wasn't available for interviews yet, but according to Instagram photos and People magazine, the wedding was studded with Dallas socialites and Real Housewives cast members.
Locken wore a custom white wedding dress made by Texas designer Nardos Imam of Nardos Design, People reports. Emberlin wore a black custom tux by Don Morphy Prive Clothiers, according to the magazine. They were married at the Cathedral of Hope.
Photos show Locken walking into the reception wearing a white pantsuit with an attached skirt and train.
Some of the celebrities at the event included Kellie Raspberry, co-host of the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show, and plenty of Real Housewives of Dallas cast members, old and new, including Stephanie Hollman, Kameron Westcott, Cary Deuber and Tiffany Hendra.
Wedding guest Dawn Mellon posted to Instagram that Locken is "truly a 'real housewife' now." She was the only unmarried member of the cast last season.
In Season 3 of the Real Housewives of Dallas, Locken could be seen planning her wedding — all while being grilled by some cast members, who wondered if the wedding would happen. Locken, 51, had said over the years that she was not in a hurry to get married.
After nearly a decade of dating, Emberlin proposed during the State Fair of Texas, a fitting setting since Locken grew up as a "carnie," as she explains it: working with family members at a traveling carnival.
Bravo won't say yet whether the latest season of Real Housewives of Dallas is a go, but film crews have been spotted around Dallas. And were those film crews at the Cathedral of Hope on Saturday? A publicist hasn't answered that question.
Locken says she picked April for her wedding date because "it signifies rebirth," she told People.
"It's when spring comes and all of the flowers are blooming. It's when all the dogwoods are in bloom. ... April's a month that's always been precious to me," she told People.
