Remember Damien and Nicole? They were one of the pairs who took part in The Biggest Loser: Couples earlier this year, although they were booted out in the early stages of the competition, before the competition shifted to individual mode. (Or you might remember Nicole for returning in a twist in the last weeks, and surprisingly gaining weight during the weigh-in.)
Nonetheless I remember them for being one of the more likeable couples that season, amidst arguing best friends and tearful families. Now, the couple, who were engaged before joining the competition, finally tied the knot.
Us Weekly reports that the wedding was held at the Renaissance of Astoria Hall in New York City last August 16--I think they originally pegged it for June, if I remember Nicole's catch-up video package on the show correctly. They exchanged vows in front of 125 guests, which include fellow contestants Carla Triplett, and Jerry and Estella Hayes.
The competition saw Damien lose 136 pounds, clocking in at 245 pounds; Nicole lost 123, clocking in at 146. Nicole's quite proud that she can fit in a smaller wedding dress, which highlighted her new figure: she says she feels "absolutely beautiful" in the outfit. But something else excites her more: the bathing suit she'll be wearing during their honeymoon in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
"I want it to be a red two-piece," she told the magazine. "I can't wait!"
And to that, I say, their story just got an even happier ending, as schmaltzy as it may sound.
