THE WEDDING: The couple had a secret wedding at the Sandals Ochi Beach Resort in Jamaica on May 17. Arlene said they didn’t want to make a fuss and Facetimed the family back home to tell them after they were married.

THANKS: Arlene would like to thank Cameron for being able to keep the wedding a secret!
