Whitney Bischoff may not have gotten her happily ever after with ex-fiancé Chris Soules, who is currently involved in a legal battle over a hit and run accident that occurred back in April, but today, the 32-year-old got her fairy-tale ending, anyway, as she walked down the aisle to the tune of “My Old Kentucky Home” to wed now husband Ricky Angel.
Photographer Carly Michelle gave us a glimpse of the happily wedded pair over on Instagram, saying, “It’s official! These two are married… these two are currently enjoying dinner and ready to dance the night away.”
While the newlywed looked gorgeous to be sure, her stunning satin column gown was made even more special by the fact that Bischoff herself helped to design it in partnership with Audrey Grant Bridal, as People first reported.
She also carried a gorgeous bouquet by Wild Dahlia, which included a single Stargazer lily in remembrance of her late mother Carol, who is said to have loved the flower (awww!).
Sharing in the couple’s big day were fellow former Bachelor Nation stars Kaitlyn Bristowe, Shawn Booth, Carly Waddell, and Evan Bass, who attended the nuptials together, with Booth joking, “Looking for some wedding to crash on the cape.”
The reality star shared her love story with her followers back in September, captioning a sweet photo of the two by writing, “This one time, on 9/24/15, I went on a Bumble date and met a really cute guy. He actually looked just like his pics!!”
It wasn’t ALL about looks, though, with the fertility nurse continuing on to say, “He made me laugh. And he made me feel like I could be myself. He didn’t care about my past. We were just two kids living in the moment. Fast forward two years and we are ready to get hitched in a matter of days. Life is a crazy ride, thanks for hanging on with me @rickyrange16.”
Now, that day has finally come, with Bischoff telling People, “I always knew I wanted to get married,” she revealed to the outlet, “I was scared for a while that I wouldn’t be able to find that. But I have absolutely no regrets. Everything happens for a reason. And I’m so happy.”
Us too, Whitney!
Congratulations to the happy couple!
