The happy couple dressed up for the occasion, Colton wearing a dark green Tom Ford suit, while Jordan looked dapper in a navy suit, also from the brand.
Regarding choosing Napa Valley as the location for their nuptials, Brown told People that “we wanted trees around and sunshine,” while stressing that “it was really important to us to get married in the outside”.
The newlyweds are outdoor enthusiasts and got engaged last year in the nudist strip of land known as Big Sur, located near California’s central coast.
The set-up for the ceremony was romantic, with an orchestra leading guests to where the nuptials were to take place, as well as a photo exhibit by Colton and Jordan themselves.
The reality TV star explained that a coffee table book titled, Loving, was the inspiration for creating a collection of images.
He said the book contains “images of men in love throughout history.” We blew them up and put them on webs and set them up around the station.
“Alongside them will be love letters from gay people in the 18th and 19th centuries that were either banned or had to be sent in secret,” he added to the publication.
Jordan also chimed in to say, “That’s really cool. It helps us honor the people who paved the way for all same-sex couples to be married now.

The Coming Out Colton star said: “We wanted to break some of the traditional norms of what a ceremony and a wedding looks like.”
He added that he and Jordan “recognize that many of the people present, both our families and some of our friends, this will be their first same-sex marriage.” We really want to make it special.
And the couple pursued that goal and revealed they even had Stanford University’s artistic swimming team perform in an on-site pool to memorably close the ceremony.
“I like to welcome and bring people together. It’s our wedding, but it’s also a three-day celebration that we’re having for our loved ones,” Jordan said.
The reception was a fun gathering with delicious food and tasty cake. The newlyweds danced to the track, The Good Ones, by Gabby Barrett, with Colton telling People, “It’s just one of those songs that reminds us of each other and is special to us.”
Taking the next step in their relationship and officially tying the knot with Jordan came naturally to Underwood. I have never been so sure of anything. He has the biggest heart and is such a good friend to everyone in his life.
The media personality gushed: “He goes out of his way to take care of his friends and family. That says a lot. It was one of the first things I noticed about him.

Two months after Colton and Cassie broke up, Randolph filed a restraining order against the former sports star and claimed he was stalking her and placed a tracking device in her vehicle.
The order was granted and the issue was privately resolved later that same year in November 2020. In April 2021, Underwood revealed on hello america that he was gay.
“I have long fled from myself. I have hated myself for a long time,” he said at the time. “And I’m gay. And I accepted that earlier this year and processed it.
“And the next step in all of this was kind of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but yeah. It sure has been a trip.
He had also publicly apologized to Cassie during the GMA interview. “I’m sorry for the pain and emotional stress I’ve caused.”
“I wish it hadn’t happened like this. I wish I had been brave enough to fix myself before I broke someone else,’ the star continued.
