The Fourth of July is a special holiday to celebrate America’s independence. It typically consists of fireworks, good food and gatherings with family and friends.  However, Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada decided to change it up a bit for their Fourth of July by GETTING MARRIED!

The wedding took place in Miami and was filmed for their new show, Ev and Ocho set to air on VH1 in September.

Ochocinco even tweeted during their wedding: “Live tweeting from my wedding … should be a first I’m assuming, music is playing, can’t see my guest right now, but they’re here…#nervous.”

It took the couple a while to find a hotel for the reception -- some of the pricier hotels in the city did not want to be affiliated with their show and drama.

We want to wish the two newly weds the best and congratulations!
