Troy Aikman married his girlfriend of one year, Catherine ‘Capa’ Mooty, in Montecito, California over the weekend.
The 50-year-old Dallas Cowboys veteran turned Fox TV game analyst looked dapper in a white jacket and black tie as his new wife stunned in a strapless satin gown.
Troy Aikman opted for a low-key fete when he exchanged vows with his lady love, fashionista Capa Mooty, on a Santa Barbara beach Saturday.
The former Dallas Cowboys star quarterback, 50, excitedly posted about the couple’s semi-secret wedding on Instagram Sunday, captioning the shot: “Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. & Mrs. Aikman.” In the photo, taken by photographer Lily Ro Hernandez, the now-Fox sports lead NFL analyst wears a dashing white tuxedo, while his bride wears an elegant strapless gown.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Aikman’s daughters, Jordan and Alexa, and Mooty’s sons, Luke and Val, were all in attendance at the nuptials. The ceremony was short and sweet, with the reception held at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara.
The photo was from Lily Ro Hernandez, who re-posted the same photo and wrote: ‘What an honor to document this amazing couple surrounded by their family and friends ❤.’
Troy said ‘I do’ on the beach outside the hotel at the Biltmore Four Seasons. Then, the newlyweds were back in their home base of Dallas by Sunday.
That Biltmore is the same hotel where Kim Kardashian stayed with basketball star Kris Humphries after their 2011 nuptials.
Montecito is where Oprah Winfrey owns a massive estate and Gwyneth Paltrow is building a second home.
Troy said ‘I do’ on the beach outside the hotel and they had the reception inside the sprawling luxury resort that has Spanish architecture and lush gardens.

The Dallas Morning News said the wedding was small with only a few family and friends.
The two started dating in February 2016 and he proposed while they were on vacation in Lake Como, Italy in June.
Though Aikman’s wedding itself was understated, however, the former athlete hasn’t been shy about sharing his love for Mooty on his social media accounts. When he proposed to Mooty during a romantic getaway in Lake Como, Italy, he shared an engagement photo with the words, “A special day as I proposed to the love of my life.”
Aikman and Mooty have reportedly been dating since February 2016.
The pair will reside with their family in Highland Park, a suburb of Dallas, where they are nearly finished with building a rooftop home overlooking Turtle Creek.
‘June 2, 2017 – A special day as I proposed to the love of my life,’ he wrote in the caption.
This is the second time Troy has been married. His first wife was Cowboys publicist Rhonda Worthey. Together they had daughters Alexa Marie, 15, and Jordan Ashley, 16.
Mooty has two sons from a previous relationship.
Aikman has a very impressive football career. He was the number one overall draft pick in 1989 and he played twelve consecutive seasons as quarterback with the Cowboys.
During his career he was a six-time Pro Bowl selection, led the team to three Super Bowl victories, and was the Super Bowl XXVII MVP.
Aikman was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006 and to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008 in New York City.
