Bachelor in Paradise Alums Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon Are Married
We have another Bachelor Nation wedding in the books! Bachelor in Paradise alums Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon tied the knot during a romantic Rhode Island ceremony on Sunday.
Officiated by Bachelor producer Elan Gale, the couple exchanged both traditional and personal vows in front of several Bachelor Nation stars including Kaitlyn Bristowe, Jason Tartick, Ben Higgins, Carly Waddell, Evan Bass, Becca Tilley and Nick Viall. The romantic and elegant occasion was planned and designed by Simply Troy Lifestyle + Events with floral design by Birch Event Design.
According to People, Iaconetti wore two wedding gowns throughout the dayâsomething she never thought she'd do. âI never thought I would be a two-dress kind of girl, but I found my reception dress first and couldnât say no,â she told the publication. For the ceremony, Iaconetti chose a strapless lace princess ballgown by Ines Di Santo. The couple's wedding photographer, Rebecca Yale, shared a photo of the pair on Instagram with the caption, "Congratulations to @ashley_iaconetti and @jaredhaibon who tied the knot this weekend in the most beautiful 3 day affair."
The bride later changed into a satin number by Rita Vanieris for the reception. The designer took to Instagram to share a series of photos of the bride at her wedding reception, writing, "Congratulation to @ashley_iaconetti and @jaredhaibonâ¨đ #whenjaredmetashley @ashleyiaconetti looked absolutely GORGEOUS in her #RitaVinierisâCrawfordâ reception gown đâ¤ď¸! The #BachelorinParadise couple tied the knot in Rhode Island this weekend surrounded by family, friends and lots of love!"
People also shared that guests were served New England-inspired hors dâoeuvres and sipped on three signature drinks at cocktail hour: âAshleyâs Tears,â âJack and Roseâ and âThe Brady Punch." The couple danced to a live rendition of "Ever the Same" sung by American Idol alum David Cook.
âJared and I from the very beginning have been saying we donât want our wedding to be a party," Iaconetti told People. "We want it to be a romantic experience! We freakishly agreed on everything. Growing up we had the exact same vision of our wedding, [doing] it as grandiose as it has become."
Iaconetti and Haibon first met in 2015 while filming Bachelor in Paradise. Although Iaconetti professed her feelings for Haibon early on, he didn't reciprocate just yet. However, Haibon finally proposed to Iaconetti in June 2018, which was documented on the fifth season of the series. âThereâs just this undeniable, magnetic force between the two of us that just is indescribable,â Haibon shared with People at the time. âLove conquered.â
