NASSAU, Bahamas, June 29 (UPI) -- Former tennis star Chris Evert and pro golfer Greg Norman are married after a romantic ceremony in the Bahamas, the couple has confirmed.

The sports couple said 140 close friends and family members were on hand Saturday to watch them exchange vows in a sunset ceremony in the tropical locale, People magazine reported.

Event planner Mary Fanizzi Krystoff said the two athletes, both 53, wanted a "romantic" outdoor wedding in a location that all their guests would enjoy.

"They wanted a romantic wedding," Krystoff said. "They wanted their friends and family to enjoy a wonderful weekend together."

Evert's sons -- Colton, 12, Nicky, 14, and Alex, 16 -- all took part in the ceremony, while Norman's son, Gregory Jr., 21, served as his father's best man. Norman's daughter Morgan, 23, also was at the Bahamas ceremony.

People said the couple got engaged last December while in South Africa and the wedding marks the second marriage for both.
