"Live tweeting from my wedding... should be a first I'm assuming, music is playing, can't see my guest right now but they're here... #nervous," tweeted the NFL star, who plays for the Miami Dolphins.

He then sent out several more tweets, including one saying he had "butterflies in his stomach" and another expressing concerns that Lozada might be a "runaway bride."

"I'm breathing like a pregnant lady in lamaze class right now... I was hoping continuing to tweet with y'all support would calm me down," he added.

Keeping to his word, Ochocinco continued to tweet throughout the ceremony.
