They do! They do! Christie MurphyAnd Jamie MartinThey got engaged in Paris and then tied the knot in Tulum in Mexico.
Martin, 28, and Murphy celebrated their nuptials Saturday, April 23 at Itzik Wedding Venue.
“Our plan to have a Tulum wedding was talked about literally on our 7th date … in Tulum,” the brides exclusively told Us Weekly. “We came here together super early on in our relationship and we joked about just eloping while we were there. We didn’t, but we said, ‘This is where we’ll do it one day.’”
In December 2021, the couple held an intimate ceremony together with their immediate families to obtain a New Jersey marriage certificate. Murphy and Martin wanted to host a destination wedding in honor of their shared love for travel and their mutual history in Tulum.
“It was the most special day of both our lives,” they told Use. “We can’t stop talking about it and looking at the photos in awe! It was the culmination of months of planning and meticulously selecting every detail. It was perfect! We both continue to say that it was the best night in our lives. Such a blast and so connective.”
The women added: “We’re just incredibly grateful for how seamless the wedding week has been! We loved having our friends and family there to experience the biggest day of our lives — the only thing missing was our pups [Ruffles and Beans], but we head home tomorrow to see them!”
The Big Brother alum — who competed during 2019’s season 21 — wore a glamorous gown from Rue De Seine Bridal and Lovely Bride in Philadelphia with coordinating shoes from Bella Belle. Lux Art Wedding Studio captured Murphy’s complete look in a series.
Murphy and Martin were affectionately joined by their bridal party on Saturday, who wore outfits by Birdy Grey, and several of the New Jersey native’s fellow reality TV stars. Analyse Talavera, Nick Maccarone, Holly AllenAnd Tommy Bracco — who appeared on Murphy’s season — attended alongside Big Brother Season 19 alum Elena DaviesAnd The Real World’s Marie Roda.
The newlyweds planned a serene affair with invitations crafted by Minted & Paper Doll Calligraphy and venue setups brought in by Planner 1 Events & Archive Events.
The twosome’s wedding ceremony came eight months after the boutique owner gushed over the pair’s Parisian engagement.
“Haven’t yet woken up from this dream. Engaged to LOVE MY LIFE in Paris 💍,” Murphy captioned Instagram snaps from their proposal in front of the Eiffel Tower in August 2021.
Soon after her return from reality TV, the Mystic Earth entrepreneur fell in love with her.
“I don’t know, I just [had] a very strange feeling … that something bigger is coming and if I was away in Iceland [filming The Challenge], it wouldn’t have happened,” Murphy recalled during a January 2021 episode of the “Hello, Friends” podcast, noting her decision to bow out of the MTV series. “I was like, ‘I’m telling you, I think I’m gonna, like, meet my soulmate this week or something,’ like, kind of joking. … Three days later, I met Jamie.”
She added at the time: “When the universe wants you to meet the person it’s gonna happen when you’re not really looking. She’s awesome, she’s actually moving to Jersey, she’s moving in with me this weekend, it’s official. … I live in Jersey, the house that I was just talking about that I bought, that’s where I still live. She’s from Brooklyn and now she moved two bridges over to me. … We’ve been slowly moving her in.”
