‘Dating Naked’ contestants Ashley Fonda & Alika Medeiros tied the knot in a non-traditional, yet not surprising way — in the buff! I guess it’s true what they say, a couple that gets naked together, stays together!
Ashley Fonda, 27, married her Dating Naked costar Alika Medeiros, 36, on Aug 6 in a non-traditional wedding at the botanical gardens in Los Angeles. As for the blushing bride’s white dress… well it wasn’t what you would expect. The couple opted to strip down for their intimate ceremony.
‘Dating Naked’ Wedding: Ashley Fonda & Alika Medeiros Marry At Botanical Gardens
Who needs to spend an extravagant amount of money on a wedding dress or tux, when in fact you can just go naked! That’s what Dating Naked stars Ashley Fonda and Alika Medeiros did for their wedding on Aug 6.
It seemed only natural in the botanical gardens for the pair to exchange vows the way they met, naked. The cute couple were paired up on the new VH1 reality show and hit it off right away. After a naked surfing date in May, the two love birds connected instantly. It seems the show’s premise worked!
Ashley is an artist, while Alika is a yoga instructor and a self-proclaimed “sexual healer.” Well, it’s apparent he did more than sexually heal his now wife.
“We really deeply connected and he taught me things,” Ashley told PEOPLE. “We realized we both have the flower of life tattoo. I told one of the producers, ‘I’m going to marry this man.’ ”
Wedding To Air On ‘Dating Naked’
The question is, was it for show? The wedding will in fact air on September 18 on VH1 and that does seem a bit weird, seeing as Alika admitted to PEOPLE, that his family still doesn’t know about the nuptials. In fact, Ashley’s family was not present at the ceremony as well. Interesting. But, she did tell the news outlet that all are invited to watch the wild wedding when it airs this fall.
The artist wasn’t shy about expressing her feelings to all those who doubt her love, “I’m truly in love with Alika… I’m so excited to see where our relationship goes and grows.”
Hopefully, the couple did truly fall in love and want to spend the rest of their lies together and are not just looking for ratings. If so, a big congratulations and good luck!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers, do you believe that Ashley and Alika are truly in love? Or do you think this was all for show? Let us know!
