Mrs & Mrs: Michael and Simone Ballack

Have to say, we’re quite pleased with Michael for taking this all the way to the altar. Not sure what finally sealed the deal for Mr. B after all this time – after all, he and Simone share three children together and have dated for many years.
Perhaps he just likes to take things slow and be sure of his emotions. He looks like that kind of gentle, sensitive guy.
Wait, sorry. We had a few too many champagne cocktails with breakfast and have no idea what we’re talking about.
Anyhoo, we send our best wishes and big congrats to the happy couple. They look rather sweet in these pics, no? Last we saw Michael, he was looking a tad worse for wear – who knew he had such pretty peepers?
The wedding deets: They were married in a ceremony at the castle of Kempfenhasen at Lake Stamberg yesterday afternoon. The reception was held at the Bavarian Yacht Club.
Btw, Michael met Simone ten years ago, when she was working as a waitress in Kaiserslautern. He says it was “love at first sight.“
UPDATE: new pics added.
