Ahh, Bachelor in Paradise 2018.
That simple time when Keira Maguire met Jarrod Woodgate, Sam Cochrane proposed to Tara Pavlovic, Jake Ellis and Megan Marx got together, and Ali Oetjen fell in love with Grant Kemp - only for every single one of these romances to end in complete and utter disaster.
While none of the Aussie contingent found their happily ever after in Fiji, it seems one cast member has certainly found his - "American Jared", Jared Haibon.
The BIP alum, who hailed from US Bachelor-nation, found his way to our shores after travelling over 15,000kms to see if he could find true love here.
After failing to win over any of the ladies presented to him, he returned back home only to find love with an old flame - Ashley Iaconetti - with the two getting hitched in a gorgeous ceremony in the US on Sunday.
Taking to his Instagram on Monday, Jared captioned a gorgeous photo of the pair saying:
"How to even begin this caption? There's so many emotions running through my body right now. I woke up yesterday morning, the day of my wedding, crying. Not from sadness, or fear. I was crying because I was so overwhelmed with happiness, excitement, gratefulness and humbleness.
"I was about to have the honour of marrying my favourite person on this earth. Ashley is my best friend, my person, my soulmate and now my wife. I love this woman more than words will ever allow me to express."
Naww, how divine!
Of course, his Aussie BIP cast mates were there to congratulate their friend on his nuptials.
"Big congrats from Oz mate ☺️👍🏼💫," Luke Mcleod wrote, while Jarrod (Woodgate) wrote: "Congratulations guys! Truely amazing what you've both achieved to get to this very moment xx [sic]."
Keira also shared some very excited sentiments: "Omg ... Congratulations you beautiful soul ✨✨✨✨ So happy for you ✨✨" with Jake Ellis also sending love.
"Congratulations brother! You both look amazing, I hope it was the perfect day for you both. Much love 💕"
And finally, Tara's former flame Sam, wrote: "Congratulations my brother!! I'll crack a bottle when I see you next. So happy for you both ✨💖👑"
While we couldn't attend the wedding (our invite must have gotten lost in the mail), one very lucky American named Marina DeLeonibus shared the following post on Facebook!
And a Bachie wedding wouldn't be complete without a million and one Insta stories:
Congratulations Jared and Ashley!
