This is one wedding made in reality-TV heaven.
Jaime Dugan and Erik Huffman, who met on Survivor: China, married Saturday evening in Charleston, S.C., in front of 150 family and friends, including other reality cast members.
Dugan, 23, and Huffman, 28, married shortly after 6 p.m. on the croquet lawn overlooking the beach at The Wild Dunes Resort.
“She took your breath away, she was so beautiful,” says a guest following the 30-minute ceremony. “There was an ocean breeze over the wedding. It was a very romantic wedding.”
The bride wore an Ulla-Maija Couture dress. She had 15 fittings at Charleston’s Maddison Row to make sure the dress was just right.
Dugan’s bridesmaids were Marisa Axelrod and Brooke Jackson from last season’s Amazing Race.
The pair, who grew up just 25 miles apart before meeting across the world in China, won an $80,000 dream wedding courtesy of the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
An Asian and tropical-themed reception, inspired by their time in China, immediately followed. Guests dined on an Asian buffet as well as a low-country menu, which featured shrimp and grits and mac and cheese with lobster.
The couple’s wedding cake designed by Ashley Bakery was decorated in a black-and-white wrought iron pattern traditional to Charleston.
