When we last saw Jon Misch and Jaclyn Schultz, they were competing on Survivor: San Juan del Sur. They both did well – he ended up in sixth place, and she was the season’s runner-up. (It was a Blood vs. Water season, so Misch and Schultz were already dating when they competed.)

Their love clearly survived Survivor: Misch and Schultz were wed in a traditional ceremony in Detroit on Sunday.

They exchanged their vows at the Shrine Chapel in the suburb of Orchard Lake, and Schultz tells PEOPLE that she found the perfect dress for her big day. “It’s a Pnina Tornai from Kleinfeld,” she says. “It has long lace sleeves fitted to my body with a train. It’s a mixture of lace and silk.”

Misch opted for a black tux with black bow tie. “We decided to go really traditional,” he tells PEOPLE. “My groomsmen are wearing the same tuxes. The only difference is that my boutonniere is bigger than theirs.”

Speaking of the wedding attendants, the couple decided to go big for the event, which was photographed by Manstrom Photography. There were 10 bridesmaids and 11 groomsmen. (One bridesmaid walked down the aisle with two groomsmen.) The bridesmaids wore blush pink dresses.

The reception was held at the Colony Club in Detroit, an ornate 1930s building that was one of the women’s clubs in the area.

The couple even chose a traditional menu. “Guests had an option of either filet, salmon or an eggplant parmesan,” Schultz says.

The five-tiered cake had a draping of real flowers. “The top level is red velvet,” says Misch. “And the other layers are chocolate or vanilla. Our monogram is on the top of the cake.”

Misch also presented his new wife with a surprise on the wedding day. He had originally bought her diamond earrings, but gave them to her early. (“She was having a bad day,” he says, “so I gave the earrings to her.”)

With the diamond earrings gone, he bought a Tiffany necklace with interlocking rings to give her on the morning of their nuptials.

Many of the couple’s Survivor castmates attended the ceremony, including the season’s winner, Natalie Anderson. “Our cast has become really close,” Schultz told PEOPLE the week before the wedding.

Misch and Schultz are spending a tw-week honeymoon in Greece before returning to their lives in Michigan. Misch is studying to be a dentist, and Schultz is preparing to take the Law School Admissions Test.

“We’re really looking forward to starting our life together,” says Misch. “This is a great beginning.”
