Pink married motocross racer Carey Hart on a beach in Costa Rica on Saturday in front of 100 guests. According to People magazine, the couple were married at sunset by a local officiant in a non-denominational ceremony at the Four Seasons hotel.
“We just love the beach, so we knew we wanted it to be at the beach,” Pink, 26, told People. Hart, 30, who recently appeared on VH1’s “The Surreal Life,” said, “We wanted it very fun and non-traditional. We’re spiritual, but we’re not religious. It was about being with our closest friends and family and having a very fun and loose party.” Among the reported guests was singer Lisa Marie Presley.
Us Weekly described the setting as an isolated beach cove near the hotel on the country’s scenic Papagayo peninsula. It reported that during the exchange of vows, a weepy Pink told Hart, “I love you because I let you hold my heart, and you haven’t broken it.”
Pink, who told MTV in December that she was “going to be a girl, and I’m going to wear a dress” for her wedding, wore a cream gown and pink highlights in her blond hair, which was topped with a black ribbon, according to Us. She walked barefoot down the aisle to Billy Joel’s “She’s Always a Woman.”
The singer (born Alecia Moore), met Hart at the 2001 X Games in Las Vegas, and, in keeping with her outspoken nature, proposed to him last summer during one of his races in Mammoth Lakes, California, by holding up a sign that read “Will you marry me?,” followed by one that said, “I’m serious!” Hart bailed on the race to say yes (see “Pink Gets Engaged To Motocross Champion Carey Hart” ). It is the first marriage for both.
“I knew within the first few weeks after meeting her that I wanted to be with her for the rest of my life,” Hart said to People. The couple plan to go snowboarding on their honeymoon with their four dogs. Wedding planner Kara Keaney told People, “They’re so in love, and they’re best friends. They’re perfect for each other.”
The singer, who stars in the upcoming horror movie “Catacombs,” is slated to release the first single from her upcoming album, I’m Not Dead (due in March or April), this month. She said the record is the most personal one she’s ever written, but that it also delves into politics on songs such as one she described as an open letter to George Bush entitled, “Dear Mr. President” (see “Pink Pens An Open Letter To President Bush On New Album” ).
