Chanel Iman's Wedding Photos and Details

Once the 2023-2024 NFL season came to a close, Chanel Iman and Davon Godchaux could finally focus their attention on their nuptials. Per Vogue, the former Victoria's Secret Angel planned the elopement by herself, though she did have design help from Katherine Nuna of KBelle's Design along the way. "We had always dreamed of this moment, talking about marriage and our future together," Iman told the publication.

In order to properly swap vows at sea, Iman sought out Katie Macpherson at IYC Yachts to source the perfect charter boat for the weekend. "We planned the wedding the way we desired—doing something together that we love with our kids and our blended family," the bride told the outlet. "This was our ideal, dream day."

The festivities began as the yacht sailed around the tropical islands dotting the Caribbean Sea. Iman donned Bronx and Banco's feathered Geisha Blanc dress to get ready with her daughters, before changing into an off-the-shoulder gown by Zuhair Murad. Chanel Iman's wedding dress featured standout details like an embellished bodice and a romantic tulle skirt, which billowed elegantly off the side of the yacht.

The couple exchanged custom wedding bands by Brilliant Earth, which were engraved with their wedding date. After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests disembarked for a day of sightseeing around Anguilla. "There were a lot of emotions on the day of the wedding," Iman told Vogue. "We laughed, we cried, we danced—and made incredible memories together. The trip actually moved us and inspired us to do this annually with our family."

Once the wedding day came to a close, the newlyweds set sail for more adventures in St. Barts. "We celebrated for three days on our charter—island hopping and making stops at beach clubs, where it all started," the bride said of the sentimental itinerary.
