ashley j.p. weddingJust a couple of weeks after Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum exchanged vows in front of their friends, family, and The Bachelor and Bachelorette community, ABC aired the wedding special we've all been waiting for! We got to see the whole lead-up, planning process, dress shopping, and even Ashley and J.P.'s "premarital counseling" with Chris Harrison before the big ceremony and party at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, California.

And surprise! For an overproduced reality show that we've all grown rather skeptical about, there were actually quite a few non-contrived, legit teary, heartfelt moments (the gift J.P. gave Ashley! the processional to "Can't Help Falling in Love"! the vows! the kissing! awwwww!). Here, snapshots of some of the most memorable moments from the night ...

    Now, that's a wedding dress! And how 'bout that chuppah! Oofa!

    During the vows they wrote for one another, Ashley and J.P. struggled to hold back tears. There was some much-needed and totally sweet comic relief when J.P. stopped short at one point in the middle of his vows to say to his bride, "You gotta keep it together or I'm not going to be able to!" Too cute.

    As promised, Emily showed up date-less to the event, wearing a cute Myne velvet maxi dress to celebrate her Bachelorette BFF’s nuptials. Though she has now struggled with two reality show-based relationships, Em had nothing but love for the happy newlyweds.
