More Details from Evan Bass and Carly Waddell's "Bachelor in Paradise" Wedding
Another Bachelor in Paradise wedding has come and gone! Although we already knew that Evan Bass and Carly Waddell tied the knot, we finally got to see inside their celebration, which aired on TV last night. The Bachelor Nation alums threw a colorful, seasonal destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Full of festive textiles, a tasseled ceremony arch, and a pepper boutonniere, the televised event was one to remember.
"We had a dream wedding. It was truly the perfect day with friends and family in Mexico," they told People. "There was no better way to celebrate the start of our forever journey together. The setting, in a garden overlooking the ocean, created a stunning visual that I don't think anyone will forget. Evan's children delivered heartfelt and hysterical speeches that had everyone laughing and crying simultaneously. The love from Bachelor Nation has been overwhelming and we are so grateful to all who helped make this day amazing," they added.
The wedding featured a vibrant aisle runner and a lively arch made of wood, flowers, and hanging décor. Tables were covered in bohemian-inspired fabric, and even the vases used throughout the party were bright and cheerful. Mexican banners hung above the seating area and petals were sprinkled over the space's grass. Waddell wore a nude embroidered wedding dress by designer Idan Cohen and carried a 15-pound (yes, you read that right!) bridal bouquet. Bass looked sharp in a gray suit, which he accented with a unique boutonniere.
Plenty of Bachelor Nation faces were spotted at the wedding, including Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi. Chris Harrison officiated the ceremony.
