What started off as a "showmance" on CBS' "Big Brother" has led to marriage for Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas. The couple married in Los Angeles, with several former cast members attending the nuptials.
Celebrity wedding planner David Tutera put together an amazing ceremony befitting Reilly's outrageous personality and need for attention. She arrived at the wedding site via helicopter.
"She wanted to arrive like a big celebrity," Tutera told People magazine. "The guests watched her arrive on live camera before she walked down the aisle, which to me is one of the most over-the-top processionals ever."
The couple met while on the reality series "Big Brother" in 2010. They were immediately branded a couple and a "showmance" ensued. Fans later merged their names into "Brenchel," and their popularity continued to grow. The two also competed on a second "All-Star" season of the show, and Reilly managed to win that second season.
Reilly was known for her outrageous and at times extreme personality on the show and was attached at the hip to Villegas. He was able to help keep her calm during the stress of the show, often reminding her that it was "just a game." The two have maintained a constant connection to the "Big Brother" producers, and Reilly was featured in a surprise Pandora's Box on last night's episode.
As many viewers may know, Reilly is not shy about her love and adoration of Villegas and can certainly talk, which is what she did on the most recent episode. After Ian opened Pandora's Box, he was able to listen to an extended message featuring Reilly speaking about her success on "Big Brother," which she said was dependent upon Villegas.
It was clear that Ian was not pleased by Reilly's speech, at one point even saying he "felt ill" and "was going to throw up" if it continued.
Yet several other "Big Brother" stars appeared at the wedding to witness the happy couple exchange vows. Chelsea Hart served as a bridesmaid, while Matt Hoffman actually officiated the wedding. One of the other most well-known "Big Brother" couples was also in attendance: Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd.
Fans will get to watch Reilly and Villegas exchange vows on the season finale of "My Fair Wedding: Unveiled," which will air on Dec. 15 on WEtv.
