Caleb Reynolds is a married man.

The 28-year-old Army veteran and Big Brother star, who recently competed on Survivor, tied the knot with fiance Ashley Jay on April 30 in Cadiz, Kentucky. About 150 guests attended the rustic barn-style wedding.

Ashley wore a strapless, floor length Priscilla of Boston gown, paired with traditional jewelry and a veil. Reynolds wore a light blue shirt with a vest and matching tie.

The ceremony was performed by Reynolds’ brother, Blake, who serves as the pastor of his church.

Reynolds tells PEOPLE that it was a “small, private wedding.” The guests included family, close friends and church members. Jay’s daughter, Kylie, was part of the day’s festivities – and wore cowboy boots with her white dress.

Also among the guests: Reynolds’ Survivor cast mates Tai Trang and Anna Khait. (Reynolds, who lasted for 90 days on Big Brother, was medically evacuated from Survivor: Kaoh Rong on day 9.)

Reynolds grew close to several of his Survivor cast mates during his short tenure on the show. He tells PEOPLE that he was thrilled to have some fellow castaways at the wedding.

Reynolds, who has worked as a hunting guide and a personal trainer, tells PEOPLE that he’s excited to share his life with Ashley.

This has been one of the best moments of my life,” he says. “The love that we share is more that any words given by man could explain. The coolest part is the fact that we are just getting started. If our love grows from this point on, then I can promise you she will become more of a priority than breathing. So get ready world here we come!”

“Marrying a man who demonstrates such a selfless love is a dream come true,” adds Ashley. “Every day with my husband has been and will continue to be an adventure – a journey of constant discovery of who we are as we conquer life together.”

“Each moment together is a reminder of how beautiful and endless our love is and will forever be,” she continues. “The world has never seen a love like ours – they will remember it even long after we’re gone. It’s a love so powerful that it truly will never die.”
