Every TV Wedding on 'The Bachelor' Series

Gerry Turner and Theresa Nester may be blazing their own trail as the first Prime couple. But when it came to their highly anticipated TV wedding, they followed a long-standing franchise tradition.

Ahead of Gerry and Theresa's ceremony on January 4, eight Bachelor Nation weddings have been televised, including couples from The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise.

Of course, inviting a camera crew (and millions of viewers) to your wedding may not be on everyone's wedding mood board. But these couples met on TV, so it makes sense to continue their love story with a full-fledged wedding — even if it means making some compromises along the way. For example, change your "I do" schedule. As Teresa recently told Bustle, she and Gerry would have waited "six to nine months" if ABC hadn't moved forward with the ceremony.

But before their big day, who else is tying the knot in front of Bachelor Nation? Here's a recap of every televised Bachelor wedding in the series so far.

Trista Lane & Ryan Sutter

Trista and Ryan's first engagement on The Bachelorette season aired in 2003 (yes, they're still together.) The couple's wedding special went off the air in December of that year, Entertainment Weekly reported. For the privilege of sharing their special day with America, they received $1 million.

Gerry has embraced Trista's advice throughout "The Bachelor" to "find the woman he can't live without," so it's especially fitting that he follows in her footsteps and has a televised wedding of his own.

Trista also gave him a tip on how to prepare for the day: "Just have fun," she told him via E! "Weddings are stressful, and weddings on TV are even more stressful. So as long as you're focused on each other and intentional, they can be great."

Molly was originally Jason's runner-up on Season 13 of The Bachelor , but they started dating after filming and eventually got married in early 2010.

She became a stepparent to Jason's son Ty, and three years later the couple welcomed daughter Riley. They recently celebrated their "lucky" 13th anniversary.

The wedding of "The Bachelorette" season 7 couple Ashley and JP aired in December 2012. Highlights of the big day included dancing the Hora and Chris Harrison (Master of Ceremonies!) making a Limbo stick from a set of ties.

They later welcomed two children, Ford and Essie, but eventually announced their separation in 2020.

Sean and Catherine's 2014 wedding marked a major milestone for Bachelor Nation: it was the first live-streamed wedding, just like Gerry and Theresa's.

In the ten years since they said "I do," Sean and Katherine have welcomed three children: Samuel, Isaiah, and Mia.

Markus Groder and Lacey Fadul

ABC

The 2014 debut of Bachelor in Paradise opened the door for more Bachelor Nation weddings, starting with Marcus and Lacey. They got engaged in season one and got married in season two - well, sort of.

In 2016, Marcus told Life & Style that he and Lacey were never officially married and eventually went their separate ways. "When we got back, we were supposed to start the paperwork. But she stalled," he told the magazine.

Tanner and Jade married in 2016 after meeting on the second season of "Bachelor in Paradise ," and shared their wedding in the Valentine's Day special "The Bachelor: A Celebration of Love."

They had three children: Emerson, Brooks and Reed.

Evan and Carly met on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise and got married the following year.

Although they split in 2020, they co-parent their children Bella and Charlie. Karlie told Us Weekly in 2023 that their situation was "very easy" — and that even though their divorce was "terrible," she would still do the same thing today. "In the long run, it's the right choice."

Kenny Brash and Mary Pepin

Before Gerry and Teresa, Kenny and Mary were the latest Bachelor couple to say "I do." Two years after meeting on Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 , Kenny and Marie got married on the same beach, with Jesse Palmer officiating.

"It's so special to be back on the beach where we first met over two years ago," Marie wrote on Instagram.
