“Challenge” host and BMX badass TJ Lavin tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Roxanne Siordia this weekend in Las Vegas on the eight-year anniversary of their meeting. Lavin, who told People he knew he wanted to marry Siordia from the second he met her, said a nasty bike accident that left him in a coma two years ago complicated the process, but is thrilled to have finally locked down the relationship now that he’s completely recovered.
“We always knew we wanted to get married on November 2 because that’s when we met,” Lavin told the magazine of his Sin City ceremony. “We thought about doing it at the drive-thru but we couldn’t go through with it, so I said I was down for City Hall. Fancy weddings aren’t our thing.”
Teej added that his accident shed some light on what was most important in his life. “It opened my eyes, and we had to work on our relationship more and make it more of a priority,” he said. “We had to find ourselves, [then] everything was cool.”
As for the honeymoon? Well, that’s the bride’s choice, TJ says, noting he’s ready to go anywhere Siordia chooses. Hmm, how does Reykjavic sound…?
