'America's Next Top Model' Winner Elopes In A Stunning 'Game Of Thrones' Themed Wedding

When we think of celebrity weddings we imagine a lavish multi-million dollar event that everyone won't stop talking about for years, but that's not always the case.

There have been many stars, like comedian Amy Schumer, who secretly got married and didn't share the big news until after the special day.

Others, like model Adrianne Curry, went the extra mile and eloped.

Curry, the first ever winner of America's Next Top Model, revealed on her website and through social media that she married her fiance, voiceover actor Matthew Rhode, in a Game Of Thrones-inspired wedding at Glacier National Park in Montana.

"The stress and agony of wedding planning is just not for me,” the model and reality star wrote. "We wanted an intimate and meaningful wedding. People opposed our career changes, our life changes, etc. It made sense to just do the thing in a personal way and save for our future."

Their wedding photographer, Brooke Stevens-Patrick of Brooke Photography, was the only person who was present for the very private affair. In Montana, a couple can tie the knot without witnesses.

She also officiated the ceremony set against the backdrop of the majestic mountains.

“Without knowing it, we both quoted The Lord Of The Rings in our vows," Curry, who describes herself as a "Tolkien enthusiast" and "nerd queen," shared.

"Our exchange was perfectly nerdy. I also tossed in some Watchmen, Harry Potter and loads of Game Of Thrones quotes."

Curry, who got engaged to Rhode last year, enlisted the help of her close friend and owner of Castle Corsetry to create her dress, a champagne-hued gown inspired by GOT character Daenerys' Qarth dress.

The bride opted for gold accessories and a colorful bouquet of orange and red flowers that complimented the dress well.  

“I had always been obsessed with it,” Curry admitted. “The metal work looked elvish. Also, the Grecian flow of it was always something I envied and wish I had in my closet."

As for her husband, he donned khakis with a blue button-up shirt, a gray vest, and cowboy hat.

After posing for photos, the couple went on a stroll through the beautiful park, shared a candlelit dinner and had their first dance in their hotel room "between the bed and desk" using an iPod to play Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love" followed by Ben E. King's "Stand By Me."

It may not be a traditional wedding, but Curry and Rhode made sure not to skip the cake cutting part. They had a custom 'House of Rhode' confection created by Miss Patti Cakes.

Instead of jetting off on a honeymoon, the couple decided to embark on a mini adventure and spend the day after the nuptials exploring the mountains.

This is Curry's second marriage. She previously wed The Brady Bunch star Christopher Knight in 2006, but the couple divorced after five years.

She met Knight in 2004 when they both appeared on the fourth season of the VH1 show The Surreal Life.

Curry described their marriage as "fake" and admitted that she was too naive at the time.

"It took this meaningful union to realize just how absolutely f***king fake that first wedding was," she wrote. "It was a TV show, only I wasn’t privy to the fact that I was the only one that thought it was real. Everything about it wasn’t genuine and I was a young and stupid fool that truly believed I was loved."

We hope second time's the charm for Curry. Congratulations to he happy couple!
