Vanderpump Rules couple Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright tied the knot on Saturday and guests were treated to a star-studded celebration that featured unmistakable personal touches from the reality TV couple.

Brittany, 30, looked gorgeous in a strapless white mermaid gown and the couple couldn’t have looked happier as they entered the reception ready for their first dance as a married couple.

The Bravo stars let loose with guests enjoying a feast of filet mignon, wedding cake, a firepit with s’mores and a bevy of Hooters girls joining in on the party fun.

As well as being attended by a host of Bravo stars such as Lisa Vanderpump, Southern Charm’s Shep Rose and Summer House’s Lauren Wirkus and Stephen McGee, the wedding was officiated by NSYNC boy-bander Lance Bass. 

At the reception, held on the grounds of the Southern castle, guests mingled, drank and danced in a separate building decorated with vines and flowers. 

Cartwright held her bridal bouquet aloft in triumph as she and her husband entered the space to cheers.  

The bride’s convertible dress featured a detachable overskirt, sleeves and veil, giving her a strapless mermaid style to move around in for the reception.

Party time! Although the official reception ended at midnight, an after party raged on in the castle, complete with Hooters girls greeting guests and hitting the dance floor

It was complete with a garter made from her mom’s wedding dress, serving as her something old and something borrowed, while her shoes from her recent Paris trip served as her something new and something blue.  

The newlyweds were bombarded with selfie requests from every corner of the room, and seemed to oblige, based on the stream of social media content pouring in from the reception. 

They were the perfect hosts, spending the evening mingling with friends and family.

Guests feasted on wedge salads, smothered in ranch dressing and crispy bacon, with entree options of filet mignon and chicken, followed by wedding cake for dessert.

There was also a fire pit outside with all the fixings for s’mores. 

Although the official reception ended at midnight, an after party raged on in the castle, complete with Hooters girls greeting guests and hitting the dance floor.

The bride is a former waitress of the risque establishment.

One guest told DailyMail.com: ‘This was the wedding of the year. Everyone had a blast, and Jax and Brittany pulled out all the stops to make it a really special night for everyone.’

The happy couple made their grand exit under a sea of lit sparklers, carrying their dogs Kingsley and Monroe.

The Vanderpump Rules stars tied the knot at the majestic Kentucky Castle, in the bride’s home state. 

Before the ceremony, guests mingled at cocktail hour while enjoying crab cakes with Heineken and Vanderpump Rose.

Although temperatures reached the 90s for the outdoor ceremony, guests kept cool with frozen margaritas as they took their seats. 

In a video recorded by a guest at the wedding, 30-year-old Cartwright looked angelic in her Netta BenShabu white dress with a four-foot train, as she and her new husband tied the knot.

One seat in the front row was left vacant for Taylor’s late father, adorned with a framed photo of the proud dad.

‘Let’s party!’ shouted the 39-year-old groom after exchanging vows, looking dapper in his tuxedo.

Guests cheered and applauded as the newlyweds walked down the aisle, ready to begin their new life together.

The pre-wedding festivities also featured a Bravo crossover of sorts, with Southern Charm’s Shep Rose joining the Vanderpump Rules crew.

In a host of Instagram Stories, the 39-year-old could be seen getting cozy with VR’s Scheanna Shay.

Also in the snaps were Lala Kent and her fiance Randall Emmett, best known for his feud with 50 Cent in which he begged the rapper to take mercy on him after he failed to pay back a loan.  

Also at the star-studded gathering was Stephen McGee, star of another Bravo show, Summer House.

Bass also shared a snap on his Instagram story of himself with Vanderpump trying on some of the giant Kentucky hats before the wedding.

Wearing an extravagant hat that matched his blue shirt, the NSYNC singer captioned the amusing snap ‘I THINK THIS IS THE ONE!’ 

Though Jax and Brittany and their guests were on top of the world at the wedding, it hasn’t always been smooth sailing for the couple.

The two first began dating in 2015, but in 2017 Jax admitted to cheating on Brittany, something he had repeatedly denied previously.

The revelation was broadcast on season six of Vanderpump Rules in 2018, yet she found a way to forgive him, and the couple got engaged in June 2018 in Malibu.

Now their relationship seems to be stronger than ever following their walk down the aisle.
