Fans could tell from the start that Big Brother stars Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson's romance was way more than just a reality-TV fling. After getting engaged in February, the couple finally made things official at The Chateau Le Dome at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu on Sunday, October 14. Scroll through for more on all their glamorous wedding details.
Cody, 33, and Graf, 27, gave each other wedding bands by Joey from Hamra Diamonds and read their own handwritten vows in front of less than 100 guests. Some familiar names to attend their big day were Big Brother alums Mark Jansen and Elena Davies and Amazing Race costar Conor Daly.
“Our wildest dreams came true today — we’re married!” the reality stars told People. “Being surrounded by our closest family and friends and sharing this special day with them was all we ever wanted. We are so lucky to have found each other in the most unconventional of ways but we did. We found our forever in each other and can’t wait to begin this new chapter of our lives.”
“Fall in L.A. is just so gorgeous out, so I wanted to be dancing under the stars all night long,” Jessica said. “I wanted for it to be dripping in flowers, and string lights and lots and lots of candles. I wanted it to look just very romantic. Like a daydream.” The couple, who have both lost love ones (Cody's brother Dylan and Jessica's late father) left two seats empty at the ceremony.
The pair is getting a head start on their new life together and announced their very first pregnancy on September 24. Jessica said in her Instagram caption, "I’m over the moon! I’m so excited to bring our first child into this life we have created together! "
For their first dance, the couple waltzed to “Shut Up and Dance” by Aaron Watson. “He sang it to me when we were in the Big Brother house, and we danced to it, and, it just always sat in the back of my mind as one of our special moments,” Jessica explained.
