“We wanted trees around and sunshine,” Brown told the outlet ahead of their wedding. “It was really important for us to get married outside.”

The wedding featured a choir and orchestra that greeted guests as they made their way to their seats. They also designed a photo mural featuring images of men in love.

Colton detailed, “One thing that’s really important to both of us is that we’ve created this, we’re calling it ‘our loving walk.’ It’s inspired from a coffee table book that I was gifted after I came out called Loving and it’s images of men in love throughout history.

“We blew them up and put them on canvases and set them around the resort. Next to them will be love letters from queer people in the 18th and 19th century that were forbidden or they had to send in secret.”

Brown added, “It’s really cool. It helps us to pay tribute to the people who paved the way for all same-sex couples who now can get married.”

Underwood further explained that they wanted to make their nuptials “special” because a lot of people attending had never been to a queer wedding.

Once married, Stanford University’s artistic swimming team performed in the pool as guests exited the ceremony.

At the reception, they served family-style plates of salads, vegetables, steak, fish and pasta. As for dessert, guests enjoyed chocolate chip cookies and mini lemon meringue pies.

Underwood and Brown danced their first dance as a married couple to “The Good Ones” by Gabby Barrett, which they explained to the outlet, “It’s just one of those songs that both remind us of each other and special to us.”

The “Bachelor in Paradise” alum later revealed they would say “I do” in a nontraditional ceremony.

“That aspect of our relationship and our engagement and even, you know, our wedding, when it comes time to plan that, we’re going to be doing it, hopefully, in a nontraditional, fun, weird way,” he said on Amazon Live. “It’s going to be authentic to us instead of trying to fit into some mold.”

Underwood — who was the “Bachelor” in 2019 during Season 23 — came out as gay in April 2021, just months before he started seeing Brown.

“I’ve ran from myself for a long time. I’ve hated myself for a long time,” he said on “Good Morning America” at the time.

“I’m gay. I came to terms with that earlier this year, and the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. … I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”
