Derek Jeter, 42, traded in the crack of the baseball bat for wedding bells, as he and Hannah Davis, 26 are now husband and wife! The gorgeous couple tied the knot at the incredible Meadowood Napa Valley Resort & Spa in St Helena, Calif., in front of close friends and family, in what was a very private ceremony.
It’s safe to say this was one situation where Derek wasn’t in his Yankee pinstripes. Instead, the former baseball captain donned his best suit as he and Hannah tied the knot at the picturesque hotel/golf course setting, with beautiful scenic views, on July 9.
Hannah looked elegant in a high-neck gown, which was custom-made by Vera Wang. Her hair was neat, in a tidy bun and she wore a veil while carrying a stunning bouquet of flowers. Derek went with a smart, black suit and looked very handsome indeed.
The ceremony got going at 8pm EST, and lasted 20 minutes, according to Us Weekly. “After the ceremony, they walked around holding hands and looking ecstatic,” the source told the magazine.
Security was at an all-time high for the occasion, with roads leading up to the resort closed off to anyone who wasn’t a guest. But what else would you expect from such a star couple who have kept us guessing since July 4 when their wedding was actually going to happen!
There was talk that these two lovebirds were going to kick off July with a private and intimate ceremony in Napa Valley. And they couldn’t keep the secret hidden, as Derek posed with his fellow Yankees — Jorge Posada, 44, Andruw Jones, 39, and Tino Martinez, 48 – for a picture at the Casa De Campo Resort on June 15. It seems this was baseball star’s bachelor party!
Derek began dating the Virgin Islands beauty in Aug. 2013. While Derek made his fame playing for the Yankees, Hannah is known for turning heads with her jaw-dropping gorgeous Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and Maxim magazine covers. She also is an actor, having played the DirecTV genie in television commercials. Well, it’s clear that one of Derek’s wishes was to have Hannah as his wife and she didn’t need any magic powers to grant that request. She said “yes” and started to flaunt the $300k diamond engagement ring he got her.
What’s next for Hannah and Derek? The happy new couple will reportedly embark for Europe for a three-week honeymoon, according to Page Six. After that, they might be shopping for a New York Yankees onesie, as the couple reportedly wants to start a family! But, for now, let’s celebrate this fabulous wedding and their happy matrimony!
Congratulations to Derek and Hannah! HollywoodLifers, are you happy that they tied the knot?
