Wow, a lot of athlete marriages this summer! Â Yesterday we reported Steelers Big Ben got married and Dahntay Jones did as well!
Congrats to Dahntay Jones & Valeisha Butterfield! Â The Indiana Pacers star and Valeisha got engaged earlier this month and are now married!
Valeisha’s parents are both government honchos–her father isÂ U.S. Congressman ButterfieldÂ of North Carolina.Â And her mother is a part of the state Congress.Â So the couple hosted weddng festivities at both the Duke University chapel (Dahntay’s alma mater) and at her fabulous family home Saturday evening.
Valeisha’s bestieÂ Emily B.Â of “Love & Hip Hop” was there of course, as well as Emily’s sonÂ JohanÂ ho served as ring-bearer, since Valeisha is his Godmother.
Other guests were Valeisha’s good friendsÂ Rocsi Diaz, Letoya Luckett, Mashonda, Alesha ReneeÂ and more.
D-NiceÂ DJ’d andÂ Lil’ MoÂ sang for the couple.
After the ceremony, Valeisha tweeted: “I’m officially Mrs. Dahntay L. Jones. God is a wonderful God.”
