The Fabulous Beekman Boys, aka Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, finally took the plunge nearly fourteen years after first meeting each other. The couple, famous for their reality series and for winning The Amazing Race, held a fabulous (like there is any other kind with them) country wedding at their farm in Sharon Springs, NY.
According to US Magazine, Martha Stewart (Ridge’s former employer) was among the estimated 300 guests in attendance. But Stewart was put to work as she broadcast the nuptials live on her Sirius XM show and provided 100 hard-boiled eggs.
The wedding day was the perfect end-result of a 14-year courtship that saw them splitting time between Manhattan and the countryside. To remember the early days together, the two wrote poems to each other.
“We hadn’t looked at these books in almost 14 years, so right before the wedding — literally like three days before the wedding — we both got out the books and we each chose three poems from the very beginning of our relationship,” Ridge told US. “Then for the ceremony we alternated reading these poems back and forth to one another to kind of capture how we felt at the very beginning of our relationship.”
