The Lochtes locked it down… again. Olympian Ryan Lochte and his wife, Kayla Rae Reid, enjoyed a second wedding ceremony in Palm Springs on Sunday, September 9.

The intimate affair was held outdoors at the Monroe Estate in the desert oasis town, where 100 of their closest loved ones witnessed the pair exchange vows. Lochte and Reid, who got engaged in October 2017, married in a civil wedding ceremony in early 2018.

However, they wanted their adorable son, Caiden Zane, now 15 months old, to be a part of the ceremony itself. “Since we had Caiden, we both wanted him to be a part of [our wedding] in some way,” Lochte told People. “We wanted Caiden to be old enough to walk down the aisle. One of our visions was to have him be able to be the ring bearer, so it’s perfect timing!”

Reid, a former Playmate, looked beautiful in a gown by Galia Lahav. The groom and his groomsmen, along with little Caiden, wore custom tuxedoes by Giorgio Verdi, according to the magazine.

A large portion of the ceremony was food. The couple served their favorite Mexican dishes by The Grand along with pizza. They served their own respective signature cocktails, along with three different types of cakes by their pastry chef based in L.A.

“No matter what has happened, Kayla’s been there to pick me up,” Lochte told People of his wife. “She’s just been there 100 percent and I owe everything to her.”

Prior to the weekend, Reid enjoyed a pajama party-themed bachelorette party in South Beach, Miami, in late August.

The pair first met in Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows. The swimmer ultimately proposed over a sunset helicopter ride just in time for proposal season.
