The couple met in the summer of 2011 while filming Big Brother 13. At the time, she was a returning contestant from Season 8 and he was a newbie. Although Donato, 26, tells the magazine she "didn't like him at first," the two became friends during filming and fell in love after the finale. Briones, 26, proposed last August at the St. Louis Zoo during a carefully planned behind-the-scenes tour of the penguin habitat.
For their Bohemian ceremony, Donato wore a BHLDN dress from the wedding line of Anthropologie and Briones wore dark purple pants from the Gap, a plaid purple shirt with a cardigan, an off-white bow tie and matching Converse sneakers.
Big Brother couple Brendan and Rachel Reilly Villegas, and fellow alum April Lewis were among the 120 guests. Lewis' 5-year-old son served as the ring bearer. The couple have no immediate plans to honeymoon, but that's OK by Donato. "I don't care where we go for the honeymoon," she told the magazine. "All I care about is that I married my best friend, and we're going to share our lives together. We mesh so well. We don't like being away from each other. We love being around each other so much. That's enough for me. I couldn't be happier."
