Rick Harrison from ‘Pawn Stars’ Got Married + ‘Counting Cars’ Star Danny Koker Officiated
In a ceremony made in reality television heaven, 47-year-old Rick Harrison from the series ‘Pawn Stars’ married his girlfriend DeAnna Burditt — and surprisingly, it wasn’t just a special for the History Channel.
The duo exchanged vows in front of 180 guests at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, Calif., with Harrison’s ‘Pawn Stars’ co-star Austin “Chumlee” Russell (who is a grown man, even if he rarely acts like it) serving as ring-bearer. Rick’s three sons — Corey, Adam, and Jake — shared best man duties, and of course the Harrison patriarch, known to ‘Pawn Stars’ viewers as “the Old Man,” was there too.
Burditt, 36, wore a long white form-fitting gown with strategically-placed cutouts and a thigh-high split up the side. (Eh, everyone involved here is from Vegas. Maybe she was just doing the latest in “showgirl chic.”)
The ceremony was officiated by Danny Koker, who runs an auto customization/restoration shop on the ‘Pawn Stars’ spin-off ‘Counting Cars.’
Guests were then treated to a musical performance by rock band Steel Panther, and later sent home with a unique wedding favor: a bobble-head version of the newlyweds.
“I just had no idea there was so much [planning] involved. I just thought you got a cake, had a party, buy a keg,” explained a confused Harrison to People, not really understanding how weddings work. Although he did admit he has never been happier.
Honeymoon plans include camping “somewhere in the West.” But that was DeAnna’s choice.
“I wanted to take her to the south of France. Or Fiji,” Rick told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “She said, ‘Let’s just go camping.’”
This is the third marriage for both Harrison and Burditt. Maybe this one will finally take.
