Yesterday, Rick Harrison from the hit show Pawn Stars married his beautiful fiancee, DeAnna Burditt. When we interviewed Harrison a couple months ago, he told us all about his feelings for Burditt and a little about her. So, we naturally had to find out more. Here's what you should know about the wedding, Harrison, and the beautiful bride.
1. The Ring Was Not from the Pawn Shop
Many fans believe or wonder if Burditt's engagement ring came from the famous Gold & Silver Pawn shop featured on History Channel's Pawn Stars. Have no fear. Rick Harrison did not get this out of his stock room according to one of the staff members at the store. Even if he had, though, we've seen some pretty insane looking rings in the G&S Pawn store.
So, how did Mr. Harrison pop the big question? With a 2 1/2 carat, cushion-cut diamond ring on Valentine's Day. Harrison asked Burditt for her hand in marriage over dinner at Aureole, a restaurant where the couple had had their first date. Well, he didn't really ask her ... more like he commanded her.
I didn't really ask her, I told her "Girl, I'm marrying you," and then I gave her the ring.
2. Chumlee Was the Ring Bearer
Apparently, age and height had nothing to do with choosing the ring bearer for the Harrison-Burditt wedding. While Harrison's three sons Corey, Jake, and Adam were all best men to their father, Austin Russell aka Chumlee, served as ring bearer. Burditt, also has three children ... all girls. It was a Brady Bunch affair.
On another interesting note, Counting Cars' star Danny Koker served as the ceremony's ordained minister.

Not what some fans would expect, but Rick Harrison opted for an extravagant seaside wedding at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel yesterday. According to Daily Mail:
The 47-year-old businessman said 'I do' to his 36-year-old bride while surrounded by 100 of the couple's closest friends and relatives. The reality star was clad in a classic tuxedo with a single lily pinned to his lapel.
Burditt's dress was very sexy with lace cut-outs and a tight-fitted silhouette. Rick's a lucky guy, huh?
Even with all the glitz and glam, the couple still knew how to rock out, having heavy metal band Steel Panther play at the ceremony.
4. DeAnna Burditt Does Not Want to Be Famous
When I spoke with Harrison at his store in May, he told me that Burditt will not be appearing on the show and that she has no desire to be famous.
Burditt is just a low maintenance girl next door. According to the Review Journal, Harrison wanted to take his new wife to the south of France or Fiji for their honeymoon, but she just wanted to take a simple camping trip. Most men wish they had it that easy.
In fact, Burditt wasn't even doing much of the wedding planning. Reportedly, it was Harrison who was in charge.
5. This is the Third Marriage for Both Burditt & Harrison
The number three seems to be connecting the two. With three children each, the couple has come together in each's third attempt at marriage. You know what they say ... Third time's a charm.
