“My favorite memory was probably at the end when they brought out the midnight snack fries and sliders and my shoes came off,” Dillard-Bassett tells PEOPLE. “I was so ashamed because I never take my shoes off. But I had been dancing so much they had to come off!”
The Bravo TV personality, 35, and her restaurateur husband, 44, exchanged vows at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, 直流电, 在八月 2018. Their big day — and its theme of “cosmopolitan sophistication with a touch of Southern class” — was attended by 260 客人, including a few of Dillard’s RHOP 演员.
Another memorable part of the evening came when the bride took to the dance floor at their reception.
“I performed for Chris, and he was not expecting that,” says Dillard-Bassett, who made her international concert debut in November at the SLS Baha Mar in The Bahamas. “So to see him sitting in the chair and blushing and all his guys were patting him on the back, that was a moment.”
The triple threat, who performs simply under the moniker Candiace, has been working toward a career in music ever since she first started showcasing her vocals on season 3 的 RHOP.
“塞雷娜·威廉姆斯已经为退休“准备”了十多年, 在我脑海里, been an artist. In my heart, I’ve always been a performer and I wanted that to translate to the Bravo audience, but also just to lovers of music, lovers of artistry and lovers of all things 这个 space,” 她在九月告诉人们. “So I’ve tried to be very intentional about how I roll out my music, how I roll out my music videos, how I present myself as an artist such that I’m presenting myself in a way that surpasses just being in the Housewife space.”
This is the first marriage for Dillard-Bassett, 一种 former Miss United States, and the second for Bassett, who has three children from two previous relationships.
The pair met while working at a restaurant together in D.C., where he was the manager and she a server. Bassett proposed in May 2017, surprising Dillard with all their friends and family.
“太疯狂了,” 她在节目中说. “To have everyone that I loved there was amazing. It was really special to me that he cared enough to execute my dream.”
