Oh yes, they did!
Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon got married on Sunday, August 11 in Rhode Island, surrounding by lots of family, friends, and loved ones.
According to People, Ashley and Jared’s dog Clark even had a role in the wedding — he was their ring bearer! Of course, Clark trotted over Neil Lane wedding bands. It wouldn’t be a true Bachelor Nation wedding without that! Ashley donned a stunning Ines Di Santo wedding gown and Jared looked handsome in a Black Tux tuxedo.
A ton of their Bachelor Nation buddies attended the beautiful nuptials, including Ben Higgins and his girlfriend Jessica Clarke, Nick Viall, Dean Unglert, Jason Tartick and Kaitlyn Bristowe, fellow “Bachelor in Paradise” success couple Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone, and many more.
Two of Jared and Ashley’s best friends, Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, did not attend because they’re fresh off welcoming their second child — a boy named Brooks Easton Tolbert. Both Jade and Tanner (and many of their friends) posted lovely tributes to their friends on Instagram. Tanner posted a picture of the four of them and their daughter Emerson. He wrote, “A love story for the ages... a romantic comedy straight from the 90’s... Jared marrying the one person he loves more than Tom Brady... Happy Wedding Day!”
The caption continued, “Part of me can’t believe Ashley and Jared are actually getting married today... and part of me feels like they have been married for years... but one thing I know for certain is that they are perfect for each other. I can’t wait to see what life has in store for you guys - congrats on your big day.”
Ashley and Jared truly do have a love story for the ages. They met in 2015 during “Paradise” Season 2, and Ashley cried many (many) a tear over Jared, who never seemed to reciprocate the feelings for Ashley at the right time. They moved in the same circles and appeared on two season of “Paradise” together, though nothing ever came to fruition.
It would take three more years for Jared to realize his feelings for Ashley. They became official in May 2018 and announced their engagement a month later. Now, they’re officially husband and wife. Love is patient, love is kind!

Congratulations, Ashley and Jared! We wish you a lifetime of happiness.
