Jared Haibon & Ashley Iaconetti Celebrate 2-Year Engagement Anniversary
It’s another year down in the books for Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconetti.
On Thursday, Jared and Ashley celebrated the two-year anniversary of their engagement. Jared popped the question June 18, 2018, on the beach in Sayulita, Mexico, during Season 5 of "Bachelor in Paradise."
He marked the occasion by posting a photo of his proposal with the caption, "Two years ago today ❤️"
The couple has been quarantining on the East Coast and celebrated their engagement anniversary by having a romantic dinner outside by the water.

In just under two months, Jared and Ashley will ring in their one-year wedding anniversary. They tied the knot August 11, 2019, at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island. Several of their Bachelor Nation friends attended the nuptials, including Ben Higgins and his now-fiancée Jess Clarke, Nick Viall, Dean Unglert, Carly Waddell and Evan Bass, Krystal Nielson, Chris Randone, Jason Tartick and Kaitlyn Bristowe, and more.
Fans of Ashley and Jared’s love story could finally breathe a sigh of relief after he popped the question in 2018. After years of will-they-or-won’t-they filled with Ashley’s tears, Jared admitted he had "been such a fool refusing to admit what I knew for so long — that my soul mate, my person, has always been right in front of my eyes."
In March, Ashley and Jared joined Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin on "Bachelor Happy Hour" and chatted about the oft-discussed topic.
The first step in that process will likely involve moving back to the East Coast where both of their families live. Ashley joked on the podcast, "Rhode Island is like his second girlfriend."
Jared said, "I know why we have to work out here [in Los Angeles]. I miss home. I miss my family. I miss the routine of things. I miss the convenience of things. There’s a different dynamic of being on the West Coast versus the East Coast."
Ashley added, "When we first got together two years ago, we said five years. That would give us another three years here, but I think it’ll be another two years. I think that’s just because the kid thing. I don’t want to have a newborn and then not have family in the area."
