She may not have been The Biggest Loser, but Tara Costa was definitely the biggest winner on her wedding day.
E! News can confirm the season seven contender, who finished in third place behind winner Helen Phillips, said “I Do” to fiancé John Baranowski Saturday afternoon in New York.
“The bride and groom with the @BiggestLoserNBC family,” former contestant Jackson Whitt wrote on Instagram while posing with Mark Pinhasovich and Pamela Geil who competed on other seasons. “#BLFam @Tara_Costa @PamelaGeil @BL10Mark.”
The wedding guests would later pose in a Fourth of July inspired photo booth after watching the couple exchange vows.

According to Us Weekly, who first broke the news, Costa wore a stunning Victor Harper dress as she celebrated in front of 185 guests.
“I am not the person who has dreamt of this day since I was little girl and to be honest I never thought I would be the one to find that special person,” she told the publication. “But today is a HUGE day for me and probably one of the most important days of my entire life. I get to marry my best friend, John.”
She added, “He’s the reason for so much happiness in my life. We’ve chosen to live this life together, because there’s no one else in the entire world we’d rather do it with.”

Whether documenting her bridal shower or working out with friends, the fitness enthusiast and physical education teacher couldn’t stop smiling as she eagerly waited for her big day.
“I am feeling very grateful and blessed as I start this new chapter in my life!” she wrote on Facebook. “The Future Mrs. XoXo.”
