Former Bachelorette Emily Maynard Is Married!


One of the most popular Bachelor contestants of all time has finally found her happily ever after! Emily Maynard, who won Brad Womack's second season of The Bachelor and later went on to become the Bachelorette herself, married fiancé Tyler Johnson in a pink-infused cowboy princess wedding at his family's farm in North Carolina this weekend.

Emily, who's mom to 8-year-old daughter Ricki from a previous relationship, wore a strapless white ball gown with a pale pink bodice and satin sash. She also rocked a half-up hairstyle and, of course, cowboy boots on her feet. The stylish Southern belle is the latest famous face to wear a non-white wedding dress.

The reality TV star's wedding touched on another major wedding trend: surprise nuptials. The couple sent playful View-Master invitations to their guests asking them to attend their engagement party, but guests quickly realized a wedding was in the works once the planner and her staff suddenly began arranging chairs.

Other highlights include Ricki serving as maid of honor and having a sweet dance with her new stepfather, plus the cotton candy-colored four-tier wedding cake.

Emily and Tyler got engaged in January after he proposed with five diamond-studded bands. In May, Emily had a "White Trash Bash" bachelorette party in Nashville to celebrate the end of singledom.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
