AceShowbiz - Congratulations are in order for Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham! "The Bachelor" couple, who is expecting their first child together, tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony that took place in Maui, Hawaii on Saturday, January 12. Us Weekly was first to break the news.
The stunning bride turned heads in a Haykey Paige sleeveless gown that featured delicate embellishments around the waist. She wore her hair down in an elegant wavy style while completing her look with a huge bouquet of white blooms. Meanwhile, the groom looked dapper as ever in a black tuxedo suit from Kenneth Cole.
The pair, who met while filming season 22 of the ABC dating show back in 2017, exchanged vows in front of 100 guests. Among the guest were the groom's close friends Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici with "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison officiating the ceremony. The show's producers Elan Gale and Bennett Graebner were also in attendance.
Catherine shared a slew of photos from the tropical nuptials, one of which gave a better look at Lauren's beatiful wedding dress. Some of the photos also featured the setting of the lavish beach wedding ceremony.
"CHEERS TO LOVE. Congratulations to Lauren and Arie (and Baby Girl Luyendyk) on making it official tonight! So honored to have witnessed it and to have celebrated you (Also, have you seen this stunning of a bride before?!?)," she captioned her post.
The couple arrived in Hawaii a few days before the nuptials. They enjoyed laid-back festivities which included a helicopter tour of the islands. They also had a rehearsal dinner on a sunset cruise the night before the wedding.
Arie and Lauren tied the knot 10 months after getting engaged in "After the Final Rose" special episode following the controversial "The Bachelor" finale of his season. Arie initially picked Becca Kufrin and proposed to her in the finale, only to call off the engagement a few weeks later because he realized his feelings for Lauren.
Just earlier this month, the couple took to Instagram to share the gender of their unborn baby. "IT'S A GIRL!!!" the former race car driver wrote in the caption alongside snaps of him and his now-wife blowing pink petals with pink smoke featured in the background.
"I think, to be honest, in the beginning we were both hoping that we were having a girl," Lauren shared to Us Weekly. "We actually did the early gender test online, so we took our test at 10 weeks. We got the results back from that, and it was that we were having a boy." The doctor encouraged her to do an ultrasound at 15 weeks and they then found out that the baby is actually a girl. Rhe whole process was well-documented in a gender reveal special for "The Bachelor".
