The Bachelor season 12's Holly Durst wed the The Bachelorette season seven's Blake Julian on Saturday at The Cliffs country club in South Carolina. One hundred and fifteen guests attended the nuptials, which were planned by Atlanta-based wedding coordinator Lindsay Pitt, founder of Toast Signature Celebrations.

Holly wore an Alfred Angelo wedding dress featuring a dramatic sweetheart neckline, fitted, draped bodice, and tufted skirt with a sweep train. The dress, based on the best-selling gown below, was customized for Holly. "We personalized her gown by removing the beading at the neckline and adding a crystal encrusted sash to emphasize her tiny waistline," says the dress's designer, Michael Shettel. "Initially, she was drawn to a traditional ball gown with lots of sparkle. Next, she tried a few fit and flare styles... Then, for her final try, she found the perfect combination of both." Holly knew she had found the dress the instant she tried it on, he says.

Though many (if not most) couples paired off on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette don't make it down the aisle, castmates who meet after the fact boast an impressive success rate. Holly and Blake's nuptials fall on the heels of Bachelor and Bachelorette alums Peyton and Chris's wedding, also held in South Carolina. Holly and Blake met on season two of The Bachelor Pad, which Holly won alongside former flame Michael Stagliano.
