This comes just four months after getting engaged on the season two finale of Bachelor In Paradise. The ceremony was held at the St. Regis Resort on Monarch Beach.

Of course, Jade and Tanner's wedding won't be the first Bachelor-related wedding to be televised. That said, while this in itself is a better batting average that the main show, it's worth remembering that Paradise is, in theory, about matching multiple couples in love and tropical roses, and so with only two of what's basically hundreds of possibilities going the distance, that's not a good batting average either.

Not to mention, Jade and Tanner's special day was filmed so that it could be aired on Valentine's Day on ABC.

"Coming into Paradise, I really didn't have any expectations about meeting somebody or falling in love with somebody", Tolbert, who appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette, told Roper during his on-air proposal in September 2015.

Of course, considering the couple met on last summer's Bachelor spinoff Bachelor in Paradise, it's no surprise that their wedding guest list was full of Bachelor and Bachelorette alums.

There were a wide array of "Bachelor" contestants past and present also at the ceremony: Not only was Ben Higgins present, but so were former series stars Chris Soules, Bob Guiney, and Andrew Firestone, plus former Bachelorettes Ali Fedotowsky, Trista Sutter, and Andi Dorfman. In addition, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum's nuptials aired on ABC in 2012, while Sean and Catherine Giudici's 2014 "grown sexy" wedding was the franchise's first-ever wedding to air on live TV.
