Congratulations are in order for Jeff Rohrer and Joshua Ross! The former Dallas Cowboys linebacker and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Facialist married in a romantic wedding ceremony on Sunday, November 18, just four days after the NFL player came out as gay.
The grooms gathered together with their closest friends and family members on Saturday, November 17, and kicked off the festivities with a hoedown-themed soiree at Sunset Ranch in Los Angeles.
Guests danced the night away under the Hollywood sign with the live music. They enjoyed barbecued food, a s’mores bar and crafted drinks.

Of his relationship with Joshua, Jeff says, "It’s a very, very, very special love affair".
As we previously reported, on Wednesday, November 14, the sportsman opened up about her sexuality revealing that he is gay and getting married to Joshua, 36.
He told The New York Times at the time, "I’m sure there’s going to be some people out there who have a negative reaction to this", adding, "and I’m fine with it".
He also said, "People are born gay, as I was, though being gay was just something that had no place during the course of my football life".
He then continued,
But when I got divorced, I said the hell with it, I’m going to do what I’ve always wanted to do. Then I found Josh, and began to openly live the life I was born to live.
Jeff was once married. He has two children from his ex-wife.
Jeff, 59, is the first current or former NFL player to get involved a same-sex marriage. The couple began dating three years ago after meeting at a bar in West Hollywood.
