Erica Rose has tied the knot! The Bachelor alum and her fiancé, Charles Sanders, married on Sunday in Houston, Texas. Naturally, Bachelor Nation was in full force with a handful of fellow Bachelor alums attending the wedding, including Vienna Girardi, AshLee Frazier Williams, and even—gasp!—Prince Lorenzo Borghese.

The newlyweds celebrated their nuptials with a Jewish ceremony at temple Emanu El, which they covered in plenty of colorful roses. There was even a wall of the bright flowers that spelled out “Cherica,” a combination of the couple’s names.

The bride wore a wedding dress, veil, and tiara by Ventura Bridal and later changed into a second dress for the reception, which was custom designed by her close friend Alex Martinez. According to a source at E! News, “Erica’s father walked her down the aisle, while Erica held her daughter, Holland, in her arms as they approached the chuppah.“

Following the ceremony, the couple had a formal cocktail reception at the synagogue, which featured a string quartet and harpist. The couple’s family and friends then gathered for a second reception at a vintage converted movie theater called the Majestic Metro, where other Bachelor Nation guests included Sadie Murray, Renee Simlak, and Melissa Schreiber.

The couple and guests were able to walk down a red carpet at the Studio 54–themed reception, and according to a source, the celebration was “totally nontraditional“ and “fun.“

The couple’s stunning nuptials were held just two months after they announced their engagement. Rose and Sanders are reportedly headed to Belize for their honeymoon.

Rose became a public figure and gained fame after being a contestant on Season 9 of The Bachelor, where she competed for Prince Lorenzo Borghese’s heart in 2006. She also appeared on Bachelor Pad’s second and third seasons, in 2011 and 2012, as well as VH1’s reality series You’re Cut Off!.
