'Bachelor in Paradise' Couple Jared Haibon & Ashley Iaconetti Weds!
Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconetti are married!
People magazine reports exclusively that the couple wed in an "over-the-top romantic" ceremony in Rhode Island Sunday evening.
Iaconetti, 31, and Haibon, 30, were reportedly overcome with emotion as they exchanged vows and Neil Lane wedding bands before 180 guests at a small church in a ceremony officiated, fittingly, by "The Bachelor" producer Elan Gale — the lovebirds met on "Bachelor in Paradise."
TMZ obtained photos of the couple outside the church.
Iaconetti dazzled in an Ines Di Santo gown from Lovella in Glendale, and in sparkling jewels from Brooke Rayn Jewelry. Haibon was clad in a Black Tux tuxedo. Iaconetti's bridesmaids wore emerald-green Tarik Ediz dresses, while Haibon's groomsmen were in Mattarazi Uomo tuxes. The ring bearer? Haibon's pooch, Clark.
Guests included Bachelor Nation figures Kaitlyn Bristowe, Jason Tartick, Ben Higgins, Evan Bass, Carly Waddell, Becca Tilley, Olivia Caridi, JJ Lane, Dean Unglert, Chris Strandburg and Nick Viall. (Somebody should have filmed the reception as a reality show of its own!)
"American Idol's" David Cook sang "Ever the Same" for their first dance as man and wife, making the already love-soaked evening ooze romance.
Iaconetti told People, "Jared and I, from the very beginning, have been saying we don't want our wedding to be a party. We want it to be a romantic experience!"
