By now, Real Housewives of Orange County fans all know Tamra Barney married Eddie Judge in an elegant sunset ceremony at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California this past Saturday. And, as photos have shown, the bride wore a stunning strapless gown for the ceremony, followed by another for the cocktail hour and a third ensemble for the reception, all designed by Mark Zunino.
Now, however, Wetpaint Entertainment can reveal even more details about Tamra and Eddie’s nuptials, including the couple’s first dance, the food, the cakes and the touching way they including Tamra’s children in their big day.
Tamra’s four kids — Ryan, Sidney, Spencer and Sophia — didn’t just watch their mom get married from the audience. Wetpaint has learned they were called up to altar. “Mid-ceremony, Tamra and Eddie asked the children to join them,” a wedding guest confirms to Wetpaint. “Both of them had written special vows they read to the kids promising to always be there for them. It was extremely touching. A lot of people teared up.”
After the emotional ceremony, it was time to celebrate! For Tamra and Eddie’s first dance: a cha-cha!
“It was awesome,” the guest shares. “Tamra had taken lessons and she and Eddie knocked everyone’s socks off.”
For the main meal, guests had a choice of prime rib or fish accompanied by an assortment of wines provided by the St. Regis. To polish off the feast, two wedding cakes were presented: a traditional cake and a groom’s cake Tamra had made for Eddie in the shape of a bicycle and a helmet.
And although the bash officially ended around 11 pm, guests created an after-party inside the hotel.
“No one wanted the night to end,” the guest concludes. “It was a great time, full of love, family and a lot of laughter.”
