It looks like these two have stopped to smell the roses! When Bachelor alum Jade Roper met Bachelorette alum Tanner Tolbert, on the love infused Bachelor in Paradise island, the rest was history. After announcing their engagement at the show's end, it's only fitting that this reality couple one-up their modern age love story with an exciting announcement!
Following the successful engagement/marriage track record of Bachelor in Paradise's season one lovebirds Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul, it's only fitting that the Bachelor's latest forever couple tie the knot where it all began, on national television. The adoring couple announced the exciting news to Bachelor host, Chris Harrison, on last night's episode of Bachelor Live, confirming the news that they would say their "I do's," in front of millions on ABC "within the next few weeks," Entertainment Weekly reports.
While chatting with the famous Bachelor host, the almost newlyweds snuck in a very important question on live TV. Calling in via Skype, the reality show twosome genuinely asked Harrison if he would officiate the televised nuptials, with an honored Harrison answering "yes!"

After successfully making it through season two of Bachelor in Paradise's island of drama, tears, and newfound love, it's safe to say that this adorable pair can handle anything. "I've never felt like this for anybody," the bride-to-be told People after the show's finale, "I tell Tanner all the time, what we have is very rare. It's very special." Roper's doting groom-to-be saw their connection on day one noting how, "Jade was number one on my list, but I didn't think I had a chance!"
It wasn't until the third night, when the pair got a chance to pair up in the same room that the conversations really started to flow. "That was my favorite part," Roper told People, "Every morning we would wake up and before the [producers] would come mic us, we would be able to be really open with each other and talk about anything. That brought us a lot closer really quickly."

Tolbert, who got down on bended knee just three weeks after he met his future bride, was quick to defend his television love story. "It does seem crazy," the groom-to-be admits, "and I thought there was zero chance of this. But when you're there and you spend so much time together from the get-go, three weeks is like nine months of real dating."
Before making the official announcement of a TV wedding, the future Mrs. Tolbert dished her wedding planning process, and how she chose to incorporate her new fiancé! "I've been looking at wedding ideas on Pinterest and sending them to Tanner." The groom-to-be couldn't help but share his insight into the wedding process by adding, "Happy wife, happy life!"
