Very few ‘Bachelor’ or ‘Bachelorette’ couples end up making it down the aisle, but Ashley and J. P. defied the odds when they wed on Dec. 1. And even then, they were faced with many threatening challenges on their big day!
Ashley Herbert and J.P. Rosenbaum are only the second couple from The Bachelorette franchise to get married, and they had their “dream wedding,” according to J.P. But their big day was not without its hiccups, as they had to deal with the threat of rain and the pressure of TV cameras. Read on for all the juicy details!
Ashley and J.P. faced many obstacles when walking down the aisle on Dec. 1, including the oncoming rain. But they didn’t let it dampen their spirits — pardon the pun! Ashley and J.P. wed in the normally sunny Pasadena, California, but dark clouds loomed over the Langham Huntington Hotel on their big day. Ashley admits that she was panicked as they were having an outdoor wedding, but it was OK in the end.
“I went outside, and I said ‘We have to take a risk’. It was amazing: it drizzled for a second, then stopped”, Ashley tells People.
Ashley and J.P.’s romance began in front of the ABC cameras, so it made sense that they’d get married in front of them, too. But, they had their concerns. “We didn’t want it to be a circus,” says J.P., while Ashley admits that “there was pressure.” However, that was another obstacle they managed to overcome, as they admit that their ceremony was “heartfelt and honest.” So sweet!
There was one problem that the happy couple didn’t expect, though, and that was the open bar closing! Once ABC stopped filming at 8pm, the drinks were no longer free, and Ashley and JP’s guests were not happy, reports the New York Daily News. A source says: “ABC would only pay for the part they were filming. As the night went on and production stopped, so did the open bar.”
Guests were apparently livid because they weren’t expecting having to pay for drinks, and many had arrived without cash. Uh-oh! The wedding, which will air on ABC on Dec. 16, was attended by Bachelor alumni Emily Maynard, Roberto Martinez and Sean Lowe. Open bar or not, it sounds like it was a great wedding!
