Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson became engaged in February 2018, less than a year after meeting and falling in love on Big Brother 19. Then last month they announced that they’re having their first child together. It has been an eventful year for the happy pair. Now they just had their ultimate moment, their wedding.
For the last couple of days, Jessica and Cody have been prepping and caelebrating their big day. They had a bridal shower in Beverly Hills, the guests started to arrive, and details for the wedding were finalized. Much of Saturday involved Jessica celebrating her wedding day with the bridal party and family. The days prior revolved around getting the rings and wedding band, writing the vows, and getting all the guests, including Cody’s daughter and flower girl Paisley.
Some noticeable wedding guests include fellow Big Brother 19 houseguests Mark Jansen, Elena Davies, and Big Brother 18’s Corey Brooks, and fellow Amazing Race contestants Alexander Rossi, Conor Daly, Kristi Leskinen, and Jen Hudak. Danielle Maltby and Vanessa Grimaldi from the Bachelor were also be in attendance. Celebrity Big Brother winner Marissa Jaret Winokur and her fellow housemate James Maslow were among the reality show guests.
The wedding took place on Sunday, October 14, 2018 in Malibu, CA with over a hundred close friends and family. Big Brother casting director Robyn Kass officiated the wedding, while Jessica and Cody’s dog Bear also had a role in the couple’s special day. Prior to the wedding, the couple set up a registry on The Knot. Anything purchased on there gives a portion of the profit to the couple’s favorite charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. All the guests wore black, so that Jessica really popped in her gorgeous white gown.
Cody wanted to bring some Texas to the wedding so the couple had Texas Roadhouse Grill cater the wedding.
Congrats to Jessica and Cody Nickson. May the future bring more exciting things.
