Candiace Dillard - RHOP

Candiace Dillard and Chris Bassett tied the knot on Saturday!

The Real Housewives of Potomac couple wed at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. and held their reception there as well.

The wedding theme was “cosmopolitan sophistication with a touch of southern class.” Among their 260 guests, some of their RHOP cast members attended.

The newly married love birds met while working at a restaurant and were engaged in May 2017. 

The 31-year-old bride serenaded the groom at the reception. Press play to watch the video below.


This is the first marriage for the reality star and the second for her husband, who has three children from previous relationships.

“Once I knew that I was in love with Chris, I just loved his kids; it was just sort of automatic. They’re an extension of him, and because they’re an extension of him, they’re an extension of me,” Dillard opened up about becoming a step-mom to The Daily Dish. “And when, if and when, [I have] a child, I want for my biological children and my ‘bonus children’ to have a special bond and a relationship, so I feel like it just kind of worked out. It worked out for the best.”

Check out the happy couple cut the wedding cake in the video below.
