It is a medieval-style fortress that was built by a wealthy couple in 1969, and Cartwright would often pass by it when she was headed to her parents’ house. The fortress was left vacant for over 30 years before it was converted into the Kentucky Castle in 2008.
The couple insisted they not see each other before the ceremony, and went out of their to make sure they didn’t slip up. “I think that’s the sweetest part of a wedding, whenever the groom sees the bride for the first time, to just watch their reaction and stuff,” Cartwright told the outlet. “That’s the thing I’m most excited for is to see him for the first time on the wedding day.”

Lance Bass was also in attendance, and he was chosen to officiate the outdoor ceremony after Vanderpump turned the position down. The former N*Sync member is a business affiliate of Taylor’s, and has grown to become one of their closest friends. “He’s become one of our really, really great friends, and he has really stepped up for us in this moment when we needed somebody,” Cartwright told People. “He stepped up and is such a nice, kind person.”
