Sometimes one wedding just won't do it: Ryan Lochte and his wife, Kayla Rae Reid, just tied the knot for a second time. On Sunday, the Olympic swimmer and his former Playboy model wife said their I dos again, this time at an intimate, outdoor wedding at Morrow Ranch, a private estate in Palm Springs, California.

The couple first wed in early January, when they had a secret ceremony together in Gainesville, Florida. The two kept their first ceremony casual, having it on a Tuesday in their shared home together. But the second time was a bit more lavish. Along with their 15-month-old son, Caiden Zane, the couple married in front of 100 of their closest family and friends, according to People.

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

The couple, who got engaged in October 2016, said that they waited to have their big ceremony together so that Caiden, who served as ring bearer, could be a part of their big day, which was planned by Pure Lavish Events.

“Since we had Caiden, we both wanted him to be a part of [our wedding] in some way,” says Lochte. Reid added, “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!”

The ceremony had a completely romantic feel to it, complete with candles and white roses scattered around the venue. The couple welcomed their guests with a celebratory tequila shot in custom wine glasses. The bride wore a stunning Galia Lahav gown for the affair, while Lochte and his son donned custom made Giorgio Verdi tuxedos.

"We’re already married on paper, but for the past 20 days I’ve been getting nervous,” says Lochte, who chose John Legend‘s “You & I” for their first dance. “We already know everything about each other, and now it’s time to celebrate!”
