RHOC’s Kelly Dodd weds Fox News correspondent Rick Leventhal in ‘intimate’ Northern California ceremony amid coronavirus pandemic

She recently faced backlash for wearing an insensitive hat and flouting social distancing rules at her bridal shower.

But Real Housewives Of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd forged ahead with her nuptials to Rick Leventhal on Saturday, in what she described as an ‘intimate’ ceremony with ‘limited guests’ in Santa Rosa, California.

Reality star Dodd, 45, and longtime Fox News correspondent Leventhal, 60, both posted lovely images to their respective Instagram accounts to mark their special day.

‘I’m so excited to be Mrs. Leventhal!!’ the Bravolebrity announced alongside a photo of the happy newlyweds, with the bride in a black dress and holding a white bouquet of roses.

Other photos on Kelly’s feed included a lovely portrait with her daughter Jolie, who was in a gorgeous dress in bridal white.

‘I lived in SF for almost 10 years .. I ❤️Napa and have lots of friends here,’ Dodd said in the caption. 

On the eve of their big day: RHOC’s Kelly Dodd got married to Rick Leventhal on Saturday, in what she described as an ‘intimate’ ceremony with ‘limited guests’ in Santa Rosa

‘They’ve been through so much with the wildfires & one big reason we still wanted to get married here was to support local businesses. Thank you! ❤️ ‘ she concluded.

Rick’s feed showed the rows of wooden chairs laid out for the outdoor wedding ceremony, in a somewhat socially distant manner.

‘Four hours till GO TIME’ he wrote in the caption, along with the hashtag #10/10/2020.

Another photo showed a stylish and sensible touch to the proceedings – black and white face masks with ‘Kelly & Rick 10/10/2020’ written on them.

The pair began dating in August of 2019, after meeting earlier that summer at Ramona Singer’s party in the Hamptons. 

In November, Leventhal popped the question with an enormous pear-shaped diamond ring, along with a speech about their love and an apartment full of flowers and champagne. 

Earlier this week, Kelly spoke to Bravo Insider about what the wedding would be like, during a time when countless others have decided to postpone their marriage celebrations to a safer time.

‘We just have limited guests, she said. ‘It’s kind of nice, though, because it’s intimate.’

Dodd also shared that daughter Jolie, whom she shares with ex-husband Michael J. Dodd, would ‘be my maid of honor.’ 

She went on to describe the affair as ‘very informal,’ also mentioning that ‘we got masks made’ in an effort to protect guests from getting ill.

In August, a wedding in Maine attended by 62 people has been traced to at least 170 COVID-19 cases.
