Two years ago, we knew Sanya was a star! We featured her beautiful wedding in March, 2010 and today we couldn’t be more proud! Inside the Olympic Stadium, Sanya Richards-Ross along with Allyson Felix, Francena McCorory and DeeDee Trotter celebrated after winning the Gold medal in the women’s 4×400 relay yesterday. This is Sanya’s second Gold Medal. Let’s take a trip down memory lane as we remember how FABULOUS her wedding was!
Aaron Ross, who plays football for the New York Giants, recently tied the knot to his college sweetheart. They both attended the University of Texas.
Sanya on Aaron during courtship: “He was a very confident guy, and I was attracted to that. He just seemed to laugh about everything.”
Aaron on Sanya during courtship: “It didn’t matter much that she knew knew little about football. She knew a lot about most everything else. She was so intelligent.”
They were married last month by Rev. Wesley Green in front of about 500 guests at Hyde Park Baptist Church in Austin, Texas. The groomsmen included Giants teammates Ahmad Bradshaw, Corey Webster and Michael Johnson, along with Tarell Brown of the San Francisco 49ers. Other guests included Roy Williams of the Dallas Cowboys, Derrick Johnson and Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs, Carl Lewis and Ryan Leslie who serenaded the couple at the reception.
Sanya’s dress is GAWJUS!!!!!!! Check out the reception lighting! The groomscake! The personalized metallic Nikes! The….EVERYTHING! Wow! Congratulations to the BEAUTIFUL chocolate couple!

Last Sunday, TEAM USA track star Sanya Richards-Ross ran away with the gold in the 400 meters as her Chocolate Groom cheered in the stands. And to add to the sweetness of it all, it was his first time watching her compete at the Olympics! The gold-medal victory was a big win for Sanya who had to settle for the bronze in 2008. Loves it.
