The Bachelor franchise has introduced the world to a handful of couples that fans were proud to see have happy endings. But not all of the show's contestants have found their soulmates on-camera in front of millions. As reported by Us Weekly, former Bachelorette Britt Nilsson got married on Saturday, Sept. 9 to her beau of almost two years, Jeremy Byrne, who she met outside of the show.
Accoring to Us Weekly, the couple exchanged vows on Saturday during an intimate ceremony officiated by Byrne's grandfather at Green Oak Ranch in Vista, California. The bride wore an off-the-shoulder gown designed by Matthew Christopher, and accessorized with an embroidered veil. As of right now, neither Nilsson nor Byrne have shared any photos from their wedding, but we're sure the images will come along later on. So far the only photo that Nilsson has shared from the day of the wedding is of an adorable gift she received from her roommate, a bedazzled pair of white Converse sneakers that she apparently wore for the reception.
According the Us Weekly, over 160 of both Byrne and Nilsson's closets friends and family members were in attendance at the wedding, but unfortunately, Bachelor franchise alums Kaitlyn Bristowe, Jillian Anderson, and Megan Bell had to RSVP no. "They weren't able to make it timing wise, but I still keep in contact with them," Nilsson told Us Weekly.
The magazine also reports that the wedding's attendees enjoyed mocktails after the ceremony, while the children present spent time at the ranch's petting zoo.
Nilsson appeared on Season 19 of The Bachelor, which saw Chris Soules as its star. After being eliminated from the show, Nilsson appeared on Season 11 of The Bachelorette, but was ultimately bested by fellow Bachelor 19 alum Kaitlyn Bristowe to become the show's leading lady. During her brief stint on the show, she developed a romantic relationship with contestant Brady Toops, who left the show to pursue a relationship with her. The couple dated for five months before calling it quits in July 2015.
A few months after her breakup with Toops, Nilsson and Byrne began dating and announced their engagement in May, shortly after Byrne seemed to have confirmed their relationship via an Instagram post. According to a video that the couple posted to YouTube, Byrne's sweet proposal to the reality star included candles and a trail of white rose petals that he set up all over her L.A. apartment.
The night before tying the knot, Nilsson took to Instagram to share a photo of herself and her now-husband alongside a sweet caption that read,
"It is after midnight. Which means it's officially the 8th. Which means it's wedding eve!!!! Which means my heart is exploding with excitement!!!!!!! wooooooo! Praise God! It's time!!!! I can't wait to marry you, Jeremy Joe!!!"
It's nice to see that Britt was able to find her happy ending after all. Congratulations to the happy couple!
