It’s not every day you get married in front of the Great Pyramids of Egypt! Bilt Rewards founder Ankur Jain and former WWE Diva Erika Hammond tied the knot on Friday in front of the Great Sphinx with the pyramids in the background. 

The couple had their stunning nuptials in front of 150 close friends and family. Their ceremony was officiated by Dr. Zahi Hawass, a leading Egyptologist. 

Singer and violinist Lindsey Stirling and singer Robin Thicke performed at the reception at the pyramids while guests ate dinner. Griffin DJ’d the event and guest Lance Bass of N’SYNC fame jumped up onstage to sing the boy band’s hit, “Bye Bye Bye,” with Hammond onstage with real estate broker Ryan Serhant joining in. 

“This truly was the wedding of the century,” a wedding guest tells ET. “Ankur and Erika work so hard, so it was amazing to be able to celebrate their marriage with them under one of the most iconic wonders of the world.”

For the after-party, Hammond changed into a custom mini-dress by Grete Henriette with gold tassel beading. 

The epic wedding weekend began with a safari dinner in a South African jungle before the bride and groom and guests were flown via private jets to Egypt. They then had a “Modern Cairo”-themed welcome reception at the Muhammed Ali Palace in Cairo. The next day, the couple had a private tour of the Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx for their guests. 

The couple initially met at Hammond’s Rumble Boxing gym, People reports, and got engaged in November 2022. 

“11/15/2022 ❤️💍 BEST night of my life!!!” Hammond captioned a series of pics from the grand occasion. “To my love, @ankurjain, from our first date w/ truffle fries & martinis (and me in sweat pants😅) to now, you continue to make me the happiest woman in the world. I cannot wait to marry you and continue making unforgettable memories together. I LOVE YOU FOREVER… my fiancé 😜 To our families & friends- Having all of our favorite people there to celebrate our love was so incredibly special.
