It's been a crazy year for The Bachelor's Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham: The couple tied the knot in January, and then, just a few weeks ago, they announced the birth of their first daughter, Alessi Ren Luyendyk. Now, it seems like they finally have some time to catch up and process all of the major milestones they've been through lately, and they started this week off by posting their official wedding video on YouTube.
Ten minutes of footage capture all of the big moments from their celebration in Maui. In the video, you can see the couple spending time together and celebrating with friends and family. Toward the end, there's even footage of the two of them exchanging vows—and it's all pretty emotional. Both of them try to hold back tears as they promise to spend the rest of their lives together.
“For the past year, I have dreamt of this day. I pictured you walking toward me down that aisle. And you’re even more beautiful standing here than I ever could have imagined. This has been an incredible, life-changing year, and you’ve been the difference. You have the most gentle heart, and I can honestly say that you have made me a better man. I am the best version of myself because I’m with you,” Luyendyk Jr. tells Burnham.
Burnham, who was pregnant at the wedding, got choked up talking about having a child with Luyendyk Jr. "I can’t wait to meet our daughter and see your bond with her grow," she said. "I promise to always support you and encourage you to chase your passions. I promise to help share the weight of our challenges because together, there’s nothing that we cannot face if we stand together. I promise to always love you, inspire you, trust you, and respect you."
It's heartfelt, especially to fans who have been following the couple's relationship. They met on season 22 of The Bachelor, but at the end of the series, Luyendyk Jr. sent Burnham home and asked contestant Becca Kufrin to marry him. Then, he shocked viewers when he called things off with Kufrin and rekindled his romance with Burnham. Despite the wild origin story, their lives are pretty tame now. The couple has been happily enjoying married life, making sure to post lots of pictures of their new daughter on Instagram.
