Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon have officially gone from paradise to perpetual bliss.
So the semi-famous couple hopes, at least.
The Bachelor in Paradise alums exchanged vows on Sunday evening in Rhode Island, People Magazine and other outlets have now confirmed, with Iaconetti speaking to this publication about the occasion and saying the following:
“We freakishly agreed on everything. Growing up we had the exact same vision of our wedding, [doing] it as grandiose as it has become.”
Added Haibon, whose dog Clark served as the precious and beyond adorable ring bearer:
“We’re so accustomed to being together, and living together, that marriage is the obvious next step!”
Among other beloved/well-known members of Bachelor Nation, People writes that Nick Viall, Dean Unglert and couple Jason Tartick and Kaitlyn Bristowe were in attendance at the event.
It’s certainly been quite the journey for these two reality stars.
Viewers met Iaconetti on Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor … and then were introduced to Haibon on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette.
Both suitors advanced pretty far in their quest at those times to find a soulmate, but neither earned the final rose.
However, they refused to give up on love and/or fame, appearing on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise.
They did go on a date during this run of episode, only for Haibon to dump Iaconetti. who made it very clear during their initial time together that she was totally smitten with Jared.
Still, the pair remained friends and even had a few romantic flings in the months that followed.
Finally, in May of 2018, Haibon admitted that seeing Ashley with another man served as a “kick in the [rear end]” for him; it made him realize that he truly did want to be with Iaconetti.
“I never felt like it was over between us after Paradise,” Jared said in a video the two filmed about a year and a half ago, adding back then:
“I’m not gonna lie and say that I was in love with Ashley during BiP. It was a slow build for me.”
About a month after this footage was shot, Jared proposed to Ashley — on a Season 5 episode of Bachelor in Paradise!
“There’s just this undeniable, magnetic force between the two of us that just is indescribable,” Haibon told People at the 2018 Nylon Young Hollywood Party, continuing at the time:
Later, Iaconetti said the following to Bachelor alum Higgins during iHeartRadio’s The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast:
“He is my person. He is my soul mate.”
How very sweet, right?
