The first photos of controversial beauty queen Carrie Prejean have been released.

Prejean, 23 -- who was stripped of her crown last summer -- donned a one-shouldered, mermaid-style $6,500 Ines Di Santo gown and matching veil to say "I Do" to Oakland Raiders quarterback Kyle Boller (who wore a Zegna tux), 28, Friday at The Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego, Calif., her hometown. She carried a white rose bouquet, which matched the blooms and greenery along the pews, which were also decorated with flowing white ribbons and candles.

Her six bridesmaids donned coral $175 Alfred Angelo gowns she purchased in San Diego. Her flower girl wore an Alfred Angelo frock in ivory and spice.

After the wedding guests danced and celebrated with a seven-tiered cake adorned with roses, pearls and ribbon made from frosting.

The 25-minute ceremony was "beautiful," a witness told E! News. "They had cocktails on the lawn right after. Everyone seemed really happy."

The two got engaged this past February.

Prejean made headlines in April 2009 when pageant judge Perez Hilton asked her if she supported gay marriage. "In my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman," she replied. "No offense to anybody there, but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be, between a man and a woman."

Her response outraged Hilton and others in the Miss California community. Hilton launched a crude attack against her. Organizer Keith Lewis even released a statement: "As co-director of the Miss California USA, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman."

Prejean only continued to anger her enemies when she began working for the National Organization for Marriage.

Scandal returned a short time later when semi-nude photos of her hit the web.

She almost lost her crown, but Donald Trump, who owns the Miss USA and Miss Universe organizations, allowed her to keep her title because he said "the pictures taken were fine."

On June 10, however, Prejean was fired for violating her contract and "unwillingness to make appearances on behalf" of the organization, according to pageant officials.

But in an in interview with Access Hollywood, Prejean claimed otherwise: "None of this would be happening right now if I just said, 'Yeah, gays should get married. You're right, Perez Hilton.'"

First runner-up Tami Farrell replaced her as Miss California USA.
