Former The Biggest Loser 2 contestants and subsequent real-life couple Matt Hoover and Suzy Preston have gotten married, wedding in a beachside ceremony conducted in Jamaica on Tuesday afternoon.

According to People, only immediate family attended the intimate ceremony, which began at 3PM local time. Suzy's sister Sandy was the maid of honor, and Matt's brother Timmy served as his best man. Suzy wore a Renée Strauss white beach wedding dress that included a sash and a Tacori crystal broach. Matt wore khaki linen pants and white dress shirt that was rolled up at the sleeves. Both Matt and Suzy, who also wore her grandmother's diamond earrings and pendant necklace, were barefoot during the ceremony.

Rather than a traditional wedding cake, the reception featured homemade cupcakes baked by Suzy and one of her friends. After the reception, Matt and Suzy, who began dating after The Biggest Loser 2's filming concluded, remained in Jamaica for their honeymoon.

Although the couple got engaged when Matt proposed to Suzy on live TV back in March, Suzy had previously stated that she didn't plan on having any TV cameras at her wedding. "My dream wedding would be small and private," she told People after Matt's proposal. "I don't want a mic under my wedding gown."

Matt, a 30-year-old former NCAA wrestling champion who began The Biggest Loser 2 weighing 339 pounds, lost 109 pounds during the show's production. He lost another 48 pounds after returning home, giving him a total weight loss of 157 pounds and a finale weigh-in weight of 182 pounds -- a 46.31% weight loss percentage that made him the second season's $250,000 grand prize winner.

Suzy, another of The Biggest Loser 2's three finalists, began the competition weighing 227 pounds and lost 66 pounds during filming. She lost another 29 pounds after returning home, giving her a total weight loss of 95 pounds and a finale weigh-in of 132 pounds -- a 41.85% weight loss percentage that placed her just behind The Biggest Loser 2 runner-up Seth Word.

Matt has worked as a full-time motivational speaker since last November's The Biggest Loser 2 finale while Suzy, a 30-year-old hairdresser, has continued to style hair.
