Reality star Rick Harrison took a break from filming his hit History channel TV series, “Pawn Stars,” to marry his fiancée of several months, 37-year-old Deanna Burditt, in a Laguna Niguel, Calif., ceremony last week.
The marriage, which is the third for Burditt, as well as the longtime TV star and Las Vegas World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop owner, was performed at an outdoor venue Saturday with his “Pawn Stars” co-star Austin “Chumlee” Russell by his side. Russell served as ring bearer during the evening ceremony, while another famous face, “Counting Cars” star Danny Koker, was spotted officiating the marriage, Us Weekly reports.
Harrison, 47, and his bride exchanged their vows in front of 180 guests, while the TV stars' three sons from former marriages, Corey, Adam and Jake, all served as members of the wedding party. Burditt’s three unidentified daughters, also from prior relationships, were reportedly in attendance.
The couple’s engagement was announced in a statement to People magazine in January. “I’m the happiest guy alive,” Harrison said. “I’m living the dream.” The “Pawn Stars” lead revealed that he proposed to his now wife at Aureole restaurant in Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day. “I didn’t really ask her; I told her, ‘Girl, I’m marrying you,’ and then I gave her the ring,” Harrison said.
Harrison told the Las Vegas Review Journal in February that his new wife will not be appearing on the hit program. "You'll notice on the show none of our wives are ever on it or anything like that," he said. "It just screws with your personal life too much."
"Pawn Stars" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on the History channel.
