Santa Teresa, Costa Rica (AFP) – The second time's a charm for top supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who late Saturday celebrated anew her recent marriage to American football star Tom Brady at a posh Costa Rican resort.
The celebrity couple, who secretly tied the knot February 26 in California, according to People magazine, enlisted a rigid security team to keep swarms of paparazzi at bay in this seaside resort where the Brazilian bombshell has a home, about 120 kilometers (75 miles) from the capital San Jose.
The renewal of the nuptials capped a three-day celebration in Santa Teresa, where some 40 relatives and friends gathered in hotels and at the luxurious villa with Bundchen, 28, and Brady, 31, the New England Patriots quarterback who steered his team to three National Football League championships.
Among the guests, according to family friends, were Bundchen's five sisters and Brady's 18-month-old son from a previous relationship.
The bride, 28, wore a long designer gown with a 10-foot-long veil and carried a bouquet of white orchids. The groom, 31, wore a gray jacket and vest with white pants.
The ceremony capped off a three-day pre-wedding celebration, which included dinners, surfing and soaking in the Central American sun.
The sunset ceremony took place at Bundchen's luxurious villa fronting the Pacific ocean, built three years ago as a promised million-dollar gift by her then-boyfriend, the Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
