Former 'Survivor' castaway J'Tia Taylor ties the knot at a zoo

Former Survivor castaway J'Tia Taylor has gotten married.
The 32-year-old nuclear engineer from Chicago, IL, who competed on Survivor: Cagayan -- Brawn vs Brains vs Beauty wed fiance Graeme Ross Hart on Friday in Rockledge, FL, People reported.
"Graeme and I are giddy to finally be Mr. & Mrs.," Taylor told People. "We look forward to many more adventures together."
The couple reportedly exchanged vows in front of more than 125 guests on the veranda of the Nyami Nyami River Lodge at the Brevard Zoo.
Among the attendees were former Survivorcontestants Kass McQuillen, Tasha Fox, Brice Johnston and Spencer Bledsoe as well as some snakes and a chinchilla.
Taylor donned a silk sheath gown with a low-cut back designed by Winnie Couture at the animal-themed wedding, according to the magazine, and her calf-hair shoes featured a zebra pattern on them.
The guests ate lobster macaroni and cheese, chicken with lemon caper sauce or crab-stuffed barramundi at the reception, where Taylor and Hart danced a salsa to "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran for their first dance as man and wife.
Everyone reportedly enjoyed a party the next day on Cocoa Beach before the couple took off on their honeymoon in Panama.
Taylor was voted out of her Brains tribe at the season's fourth Tribal Council session. She was voted out of the game after her alliance members McQuillen and Fox turned on her and sided with Bledsoe instead in the hopes of winning future Immunity Challenges.
Taylor was best remembered for making a dramatic exit in which she spilled most of her tribe's rice before heading to Tribal Council.
