Here comes the bride! The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is officially off the market after saying “I do” this afternoon to her partner of three years, Eddie Judge.
The nuptials took place at the stunning St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, Calif., in front of more than 100 guests, including RHOC cast members Gretchen Rossi, Vicki Gunvalson and Alexis Bellino.
The 45-year-old bride, who has been married twice before, chose three different dresses for her big day, all by Mark Zunino.
“It’s going to be a big wedding, so I am doing three different dresses for three different stages of the wedding,” Tamra told Life & Style exclusively last month. “A bridal one, a reception one and a party one.”
The wedding party included her Housewives co-star Heather Dubrow, who also sang at the reception, as well as Marcos Prolo, who introduced the couple and acted as Eddie’s best man.
“The ceremony was elegant and beautiful,” an eyewitness says. “At the altar was an upside-down gold bicycle and gold chandeliers with crystal and white flowers draping down.”
As for the reception, which took place in the Monarch Ballroom, Tamra and Eddie made sure their guests had a good time.
“There will be lots of booze,” she told Life & Style. “There will be an open bar.”
The ballroom was decorated by wedding planner Diane Valentine in romantic shades of pink. “The tables were covered with a nude-colored tablecloth and decorated with tall branches topped with pink and white flowers, and the gold chairs were decorated with white tulle and crystal accents,” the eyewitness says.
The entire day was filmed by Bravo for a three-part wedding special called Tamra’s OC Wedding, which will air on Mondays starting on Sept. 2.
The show will document their joint Las Vegas bachelor and bachelorette party, Tamra’s dress fittings as well as other aspects of the planning for the big day.
"I wouldn't have it any other way,” Tamra said of having her wedding filmed for the show. “My fans have seen me go through so much that of course I'd want to share that."
The couple will jet off on their honeymoon in July once filming for the wedding spin-off is complete.
“All she wanted was this big, fairy-tale wedding, and now it’s come true,” a friend of the couple shared.
Eddie proposed to Tamra during their vacation to Bora Bora in February 2012.
