It was an animal-themed wedding for former Survivor contestant J’Tia Taylor.

Taylor, 32, a nuclear engineer who competed on Survivor: Cagayan, married fiancé Graeme Ross Hart on Friday. The ceremony took place on the veranda of the Nyami Nyami River Lodge at the Brevard Zoo in Rockledge, Florida.

More than 125 guests attended the ceremony, including Survivor contestants Kass McQuillen, Tasha Fox, Brice Johnston and Spencer Bledsoe.

Taylor wore a silk sheath gown with a low-cut back designed by Winnie Couture. Her shoes were calf-hair heels in a zebra pattern. The venue had gold decorations with zebra-print accents. While waiting for the ceremony to begin, guests encountered exotic animals, including snakes and a chinchilla.

For the reception, guests dined on crab-stuffed barramundi, lobster macaroni and cheese, and chicken with lemon caper sauce. Appetizers included conch fritters with stone-ground mustard, pulled pork sliders, and salmon crostini.

The couple danced a salsa to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” followed by a father-daughter dance to “Be My Baby” by the Ronettes and a mother-son waltz to “Edelweiss.”

The following day, guests remained for a daylong party on Cocoa Beach. The couple will honeymoon in Panama.

“Graeme and I are giddy to finally be Mr. & Mrs.,” Taylor tells PEOPLE. “We look forward to many more adventures together.”
