'Dating Naked' Couple Married In Naked Wedding Revealed
Ashley Fonda and Alika Medeiros have finally been identified as being the first Dating Naked couple to wed in a non-traditional ceremony that will air on VH1.
Ashley Fonda And Alika Medeiros Met Dating Naked
Fonda, 27, and Medeiros, 36, met in May on the set of VH1’s controversial dating show when they went naked surfing on their date. Medeiros, a yoga instructor and “sexual healer,” won Fonda’s affections in episode 6 of the series, and Fonda says she knew right away that they were destined for marriage.
“We really deeply connected and he taught me things. We realized we both have the flower of life tattoo. I told one of the producers, ‘I’m going to marry this man,’” Fonda told People.
In keeping with how they met, Fonda and Medeiros married in a nude ceremony on Aug. 6, though Fonda admits she did walk down the aisle in a custom made white dress. The non-traditional ceremony was performed by a shaman and will be televised in a special episode of Dating Naked.
“What Alika and I are sharing with everyone during our ceremony is that this is a non-traditional marriage; it’s more of a New Age ceremony…I would call it a shamanic ceremony. A ceremony of love – of each other, of the divine feminine and the divine masculine. We’re standing as two very strong, spiritual, individual people that are coming together as a representation of the balance and harmony that we need to have a little bit more of in this world. I mean, it’s going to be naked – it’s a naked wedding,” Fonda revealed.
But that’s not the only unique thing about their marriage. Medeiros lives in Northern California, Fonda in Colorado, and the new bride admits the two have no plans to move in together, saying, “Right now we’re kind of feeling it out. I travel a lot, so I’m kind of doing that and focusing on that for myself; I have some personal goals that I’m working on.”
The naked wedding will air in a special episode of Dating Naked Thursday, Sept. 18, on VH1.
