Mrs Carter: Two Idol weddings this year already – who’s next?
It’s not even February yet and we’ve already seen two ‘American Idol’ alum say their ‘I do’s’ this year.
First there was James Durbin and his wife Heidi Lowe who got married on New Year’s Eve in a private ceremony near the edge of the Redwood forest in California and now Danny Gokey has tied the knot with model Leyicet Peralta.
Danny and Leyicet exchanged their wedding vows on Sunday in a small ceremony in Florida. Gokey posted a short, but excited message about his wedding yesterday on his Twitter account that read; “Wedding day!!!!!!!!!” The couple also spoke to People Magazine about their commitment to one another and said that they are ‘thankful’ that they found each other. They said;
“We are so thankful to have found each other and now be able to spend the rest of our lives together. We pray our gratitude grows more every day because there is so much for us to do now. We wanted a smaller, more intimate wedding of just friends and family. The theme of the wedding was romance and love.”
This is the second marriage for Gokey who lost his first wife, Sophia, in 2008 after she went in for a routine surgery for congenital heart disease and passed away. In lieu of gifts the couple asked that a donation be made to Sophia’s heart, a children’s charity that Gokey founded to honor his late wife.
