Congrats are in order for Real Housewives of Potomac star Candiace Dillard and her restaurateur beau Chris Bassett!
The longterm couple exchanged wedding vows on Saturday at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
PEOPLE got the exclusive shots and details from the bride and groom’s big day. The reality star looked stunning in a custom-made gown by designer Karen Sabag.
They had about 260 guests in attendance, including some of her RHOP costars. The theme for the major occasion was “cosmopolitan sophistication with a touch of southern class”. “Candiace’s wedding reminded me of a Parisian fairy tale overflowing in gold and white. When she walked down the aisle you forgot about the beauty of the room because she was absolutely radiant,” a source at the wedding tells PEOPLE.
Candiace, who became a new cast member for season three of RHOP, met Chris while they were working at a restaurant together in Washington D.C. (he was the manager, she was the server). He then proposed in May of 2017, where Chris surprised her with all their friends and family.
It’s the first marriage for Candiace and the second for Chris (he has three children from two previous relationships). Their wedding planning, and the drama that came along with it, was a big part of her storyline this season on RHOP. Some of those hurdles they dealt with included her mother Dorothy’s strong opinion about her wedding dress and her father’s refusal to give her more funds for the festivities. Looks like it all worked out in the end for them as they are now officially husband and wife.
