Chanel Iman and Davon Godchaux wasted no time making things official. The couple officially tied the knot in January 2024, just months after they got engaged.

“We planned the wedding the way we desired — doing something together that we love with our kids and our blended family,” Chanel told the publication.

“This was our ideal, dream day. A handful of people attended the wedding — including my best friend and soul sister, Heidy De la Rosa.” Chanel and Iman chartered the yacht for the entire day and sailed around from island to island.

For the ceremony, Chanel and Davon decided to keep things small. The former Victoria’s Secret model wore a Zuhair Murad gown while her beau rocked a custom black-and-white suit. Chanel and Davon had an intimate wedding that was attended only by their children — Chanel has two kids from a previous relationship — and their immediate families. After the ceremony, the group sailed to Anguilla, St. Barts, and Cap Juluca.
