"We gon git mawwied y'all," she wrote on Instagram shortly before the big day, which took place at St. John's UMC in Kansas City.
After the wedding, she posted a beautiful photo of the 'just married' duo walking down the aisle which was captioned, "This gives me all the feels. I cannot begin to describe how amazing this weekend was. I wish I could go back and relive every single moment a thousand times over. Thank you to everyone who was a part of the best day of our lives, from our wedding party, down to the very last guest. Tyler and I appreciate every single one of you."
And those appreciated include former Bachelorette bestie Andi Dorfman, who was on bridesmaid duty during the wedding weekend (and slayed with a smoldering look in her pink-hued dress) as well as other fellow contestants Kelly Travis and Christy Hansen on the guest list. See all the gorgeous photos from their wedding day below.
The pair got engaged last January on New Year's Eve in Colorado — with the reality star announcing the news on Instagram, according to E! Online. "And on the last day of vacation this happened! I can't wait to marry my best friend. Over the moon happy right now!" she had captioned the photo of VanLoo on one knee.
Since then, the Midwestern bride-to-be has been enjoying #engagedlife (and sharing it with the rest of the world) on her Instagram — including some fun ring selfies of her gorgeous pear-shaped sparkler with a white gold pave band. Over Labor Day weekend, Ferrell celebrated with all of her girls at a beachy bachelorette, sharing some adorable selfies and photos of the booze and babes-filled weekend.
We're happy that Ferrell is in a better place, as in the not-too-distant past, the reality star was sitting on a couch next to infamous Bachelor Juan Pablo — who proceeded to refuse to tell her he loved her and didn't propose at the end of the season. But as luck would have it, alls well that ends well for this nurse — and now she's happily married and most likely jetting off to her honeymoon in style.
