Season 12 "The Bachelorette" star JoJo Fletcher and that season's winner, sportscaster Jordan Rodgers, married on Saturday.
People magazine was the first to report that real estate developer Fletcher, 31, and ESPN and SEC Network football analyst Rodgers, 33, wed at the Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, California, with guests that included "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" franchise veterans Raven Gates, Adam Gottschalk and Becca Tilley.
"It sounds cliché, but I really am marrying my best friend," Fletcher, a Dallas native, told People. "Everything that's happened in our relationship has only made us stronger. And we just feel so lucky." She wore an Ines di Santo gown, the magazine said.
Following Rodgers' public proposal on the ABC reality dating competition in 2016, the couple became reengaged privately on Aug. 25, 2019. The pandemic had thwarted earlier wedding plans.
"We had a date in 2020, and then we had a date in 2021," said Jordan, who was raised in Chico, California. "We kept thinking the world would get back to normal but it didn't!"
