Co-star Carly Waddell sang a special song that she wrote for the two. She met Jade on Soules season of The Bachelor and Tanner on BiP.
Jade and Tanner wrote and delivered heartfelt vows to one another. Tolbert told Roper:
“Jade, from the moment we met, it was over for me. My heart loved you even when my head told me it was way too early. You went from a girl I thought was cute on TV to my best friend in the entire world, and I wouldn’t spend my life with anyone but you.
And I promise to go through the ups and downs of life alongside you because the downs with you are even better than the ups without. I promise to remember that you are always right, and I’m always wrong.
Jade, you are the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I feel like the luckiest man in the world to be marrying you. I love you today, I will love you tomorrow and I can’t wait to love you for the rest of my life.”
“there came a point in my life where I never thought I was going to get married. I had seen marriages in my family give their best and failed, and I became afraid to fully open myself up to somebody – and that is until I met you, until I experienced the love that you provide.
Tanner, you are the love of my life. And we both know that I am not perfect, but I promise to always give you my best. And I promise to love you all of my life, for loving you will never grow old. On this special day, I choose in faith to join my life with yours, to become one family: Pippa [our Boston terrier], the cats and all. I love you.”
Then they both professed,
“You are more special to me today than yesterday. You will be more cherished tomorrow. Please wear this ring and see it as a symbol of my love for you – a love that transcends all of our yesterdays, all of our todays and all our tomorrows.”
As all Bachelor weddings, the event was just stunning and it was clear that these two genuinely loved one another. I have to confess Jade was the last person on BiP that I thought would find a future husband only because I felt certain she was headed to West Hollywood to star on Vanderpump Rules, but I was wrong. This connection appears to be legit.
By the way, thankfully ABC did spring for an open bar (unlike at JP and Ashley’s wedding).
Bachelor Ben Higgins who met Tanner on Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette was there and wished the two well.
“Any time somebody gets married, you see the beauty in life – the love that we all wish for and hope for.”
Ben also let us in on a bombshell that he literally fell in love with not one but two women on his season (and that aligns with spoilers that suggest that we could actually have our second ever “Mesnick” on the finale).
In regards to what other Bachelor alumni were in attendance….
