JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers have finally said “I do,” nearly six years after they got engaged on “The Bachelorette.”
After postponing their nuptials twice, the two exchanged vows at the Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, Calif., on Saturday.
“It sounds cliché, but I really am marrying my best friend,” Fletcher, who wore a beautiful Ines di Santo gown, told People. “Everything that’s happened in our relationship has only made us stronger. And we just feel so lucky.
“It feels so good! It took a while to get here but it was all so worth it,” she continued. “We are FINALLY married!!! Can’t wait to start this next chapter of our life together.”
Fletcher, 31, and Jordan, 33, were surrounded by friends and family on their special day, including fellow Bachelor Nation stars Raven Gates, Adam Gottschalk and Becca Tilley, who served as a bridesmaid.
The newlyweds, who previously had wedding dates set in both 2020 and 2021, told People that they briefly considered eloping.
“We kept thinking the world would get back to normal but it didn’t,” Rodgers explained, noting that they “decided to just ride it out so the day could be exactly what we wanted it to be.”
While speaking to Page Six last month, the two said they were ecstatic that they decided to wait and do the wedding right, teasing a “whimsical” and “rustic” theme.
“The venue feels very romantic, but also it’s set in this vineyard, so it has this very organic feel to it,” Fletcher said at the time.
The lovebirds also told us that they wanted their special day to have the “classic feeling of a wedding,” by incorporating olive branches, greenery and florals.
Fletcher and Rodgers also told Page Six that they were planning a romantic honeymoon to Greece and Paris following their big day.
