The Amazing Race winners and The Fabulous Beekman Boys stars wed at their farm in Sharon Springs, NY on Friday, Us Weekly reported.

"It could not have been a more perfect day," Ridge told Us.

Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge competed as "Life Partners and Goat Farmers" on last fall's 21st edition of The Amazing Race, which they ended up winning and claiming the $1 million grand prize.

The couple, who had their goats serve as "groomsmen," reportedly exchanged vows in front of 300 guests along with poems they had written to one another when they first began dating about 14 years ago.

"June was a really busy month. We kind of planned the whole wedding in three weeks. It was like a shotgun wedding," Ridge said, referencing how the pair had set a wedding date a few months ago.

"When Josh and I first started dating 14 years ago, I used to live at the tip of Manhattan and he lived down in the West Village, and we would spend alternating weekends with one another. And at the end of each weekend, we had journals, and we would write a poem to one another."

Ridge explained sharing the poems aloud was a pretty spontaneous, last-minute decision.  

"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," he told the magazine. "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."

The wedding guests reportedly arrived around noon, drank signature cocktails in the formal flower garden and brought an "heirloom dish" in the form of a side dish or dessert that had special meaning to their family. In addition to the heirloom dish, the main course featured barbeque pork and chicken.

The party favors were reportedly handcrafted picnic blankets on which the guests sampled all the food.

The Fabulous Beekman Boys aired on Discovery's Planet Green network in 2010 and 2011 and debuted a third season on The Cooking Channel in late 2012.
