Some people spend years planning their dream weddings, but for Chanel Iman a few weeks was enough. The model officially tied the knot with NFL player Sterling Shepard, just 3 months after getting engaged.
Shepard proposed to his new wife over the holiday season, sharing an adorable snap of the candlelit moment to his Instagram.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that three months would barely see you have time to order a dress, but the pair got hitched in a beautifully lavish ceremony the day before the Oscars, once again taking to Instagram to show off their Los Angeles nuptials. "Couldn't imagine a more magical night. #Mr&MrsShepard," Sterling captioned a picture of himself and his new bride.
27-year-old Chanel started modeling at the tender age of 12, working with Ford Models. In 2006, she won third place in the agency's Supermodel of the World contest. The competition scored her a contract with the agency, and she went on to appear in several high profile publications such as Allure, Harpers Bazaar, V, I-D and several international Vogues. As well as in print, the Atlanta native is a runway staple, walking for Burberry, Tom Ford, Gucci, Balenciaga, Moschino, and Oscar de la Renta to name a few. The 5 ' 11" beauty has had several A-list romances, having dated rapper ASAP Rocky from April 2013 - October 2014, then Lakers basketball player Jordan Clarkson in 2015. The relationship ended after heavy rumors of cheating surfaced.
Thankfully, it all came up trumps for the model when she met the New York Giants wide receiver Shepard, who truly swept her off of her feet. The couple join the long list of celebrities that have gotten hitched over the past few months, including Kevin McKidd of Grey's Anatomy and actress Amy Schumer who married her chef boyfriend in Malibu last month after only a few months of dating.
Congratulations to the happy couple - now, who's next?
