Now that’s a love boat. Former View co-host Star Jones married fiance Ricardo Lugo aboard a cruise ship this weekend as the couple and their loved ones sailed their way through the Bahamas on the Royal Caribbean ship named Anthem of the Seas.

The couple exchanged vows on Sunday, March 25, in a ceremony officiated by the ship’s captain.

For the nuptials, Jones chose a figure flattering gown by Dennis Basso featuring a bow on her shoulder. The bride and groom exchanged vows before 150 guests including celebrities like Tina Knowles and her husband Richard Lawson, Holly Robinson Peete, Any Given Sunday actor Bill Bellamy, and Real Housewife Phaedra Parks.

The wedding on the high seas was documented by Charles and Jennifer Maring of Maring Visuals, the same dream team behind David Tutera’s wedding photography.

Jones and Lugo got engaged in October 2017. This is the second marriage for the journalist, who was previously married to Al Reynolds from 2004 to 2008.
