June is Wedding Season! If you’re a loyal America’s Next Top Model fan, you probably remember Cycle 5 contestant Kim Stolz. The androgynous beauty turned heads as the show’s first openly gay contestant during the 2005 season, and made it to the final five before being eliminated from the competition. Of course, if you’re thinking Kim looks familiar and haven’t watched her on Top Model, there’s a chance recognize her from her stint as an MTV VJ! Television career aside, Kim just reached another major life event as she married Lexi Ristch–her girlfriend of two years–in an outdoor ceremony on Saturday 6/15.

The pair exchanged vows in the backyard of Stolz parents’, and posted candid photos galore on their respective Instagram accounts. Both brides wore white dresses with sweetheart necklines and full skirts. Kim had her tresses pulled back into an up-do and rocked a simple veil while bride Lexi sported long, cascading waves. Not only is the pair a married couple, but they’re also business partners: Stolz and Ritsch (who, coincidentally is now also a Stolz) co-operate NYC eatery The Dalloway. No strangers to 24/7 togetherness!  According to Kim’s IG captions, the brides are currently honeymooning on an adventure through Hong Kong, Bali, and Malaysia. Too cute.
