Bland, 23, married Jared Hines in the chapel at Campbellsville University in Kentucky in front of about 275 guests. "I wasn't a bridezilla," she tells the magazine. "I was pretty easy to please. All that mattered to me was that I was getting married."
Bland, a former Miss Kentucky Teen USA, wore an off-the-rack strapless grown from Oleg Cassini. The outdoor reception took place on her aunt's farm, where guests noshed on spinach-stuffed pork, Hawaiian chicken, garlic mashed potatoes and string beans.
Although the 23-year-old admitted she had "some butterflies" before the ceremony, everything went off without a hitch. "Once I got to the church, we did a first look where Jared and I could be together and have a quiet moment alone. It was very emotional," she says. "At that moment, I knew that everything was going to be perfect. And it was."
Bland, who was part of the beauty tribe as per Survivor: Cagayan's "brains vs. brawn vs. beauty" theme, was the 11th person voted out on the CBS reality competition.
