Watch Raven Gates & Adam Gottschalk Tie the Knot in Gorgeous Wedding Video
One month after tying the knot, Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk are giving Bachelor Nation a better look inside their special day.
The beloved franchise couple — who first fell in love while filming “Bachelor in Paradise” Season 4 in 2017 — shared their official wedding video this weekend via YouTube, which features romantic moments from their gorgeous ceremony at The Olana, a luxe estate outside of Dallas, Texas.
Most notably, the clip unveils portions of Raven and Adam’s touching self-penned vows.
“Finally. That is the word we’ve been using today and for the last year-and-a-half of our wedding planning,” said Adam, choking up. “Today also marks the happiest day of my life.”
He continued, “Who would imagine a reality TV show would bring two people — a small-town girl from Hoxie, Arkansas, and a Southern California city slicker — [to] collide into one imperfect, perfect world.”
Meanwhile, Raven — resplendent in a stunning white lace gown — told Adam, “My dad would say, ‘Life is hard already, but you need someone that’s easy to love.’ And I thought I’d known what that meant a time or two, but I had no idea until I met you.
“We are really uncertain for what is to come. And, so far, it’s been such bliss to hold your hand,” added Raven, holding back tears. “But today, I promise to also hold your hand when it’s hard. I love you, Adam, and I promise to always be by your side — no matter what is to come — always holding your hand.”
According to the duo, exchanging vows was their favorite part of the intimate event — which was canceled and replanned multiple times due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“That was my favorite part,” Raven previously told People. “Adam did such a beautiful job writing his vows. It was so special. And to have just the people there who will be with us for everything was so intimate and spiritual.”
Adam gushed, “Raven looked so beautiful. I was an absolute mess, sobbing and crying.”
