Brazilian model Lisalla Montenegro wed Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher C.J. Wilson on Sunday in Laguna Beach, Calif.

The couple exchanged vows in front of about 175 guests, including Montenegro’s best friend, sports anchor Molly Querim, and Wilson’s Angels teammates.

“I’m so blessed and excited,” said the bride, who took Wilson’s last name.

The bride stunned in a custom Inbal Dror gown, and Wilson wore a custom Elevee tuxedo. Montenegro changed into another Inbal Dror gown for the reception, where she showed off her traditional Brazilian dance moves. The wedding was planned by Mindy Weiss.

Montenegro and Wilson met through mutual friends two years ago while she was filming a Maybelline commercial. They are spending their honeymoon in her home country, Brazil.

“Love to me now means pure magic, endless possibilities,” she said. “I can’t wait to start my life as Mrs. Wilson.”
