Many congrats to “Pawn Stars” hero Rick Harrison on his California oceanfront wedding to DeAnna Burditt today. I would have been in Laguna Niguel with the happy couple, but I am on my annual vacation in Italy.
We reported their engagement in February 2012: “ ‘Pawn Stars’ Rick Harrison engaged to DeAnna Burditt.”
On April 30, two months after the engagement, twice-divorced Rick told me about his July 21, 2013, wedding plans to marry fiancee Deanna at The Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel in a 6 p.m. sunset ceremony.
His three sons and her three daughters will be attending. We reported the news of their 2 1/2-carat, cushion-cut diamond engagement ring in February 2012.
“She’s left me to do all the planning, and all I can say is that there’s a lot more to weddings that I ever thought,” Rick said. “What started with just 40 family and friends is now well over 100.”
Danny Koker of reality TV show “Counting Cars” is an ordained minister and is set to officiate at the ceremony. Austin “Chumlee” Russell of “Pawn Stars” will act as the ring bearer.
