'Bachelorette' Alum Zak Waddell Is Married! (PHOTO)

He wasn't lucky in love on season nine of the Bachelorette, when he failed to capture Desiree Hartsock's heart and finished in fourth place. But everything happens for a reason because Zak Waddell found the woman of his dreams and married her in a magical ceremony that took place in Ireland.


Waddell, a drilling fluid engineer from Dallas, married fiancée Elizabeth Coulon on June 13 at the Gougane Barra Hotel in Cork, Ireland — and the photos of their nuptials prove their union was worth the wait.

Waddell appeared on the Bachelorette in 2013 and outlasted even Juan Pablo Galavis, but was ultimately eliminated in week 8. Hartsock went on to choose mortgage broker Chris Siegfried, whom she married in California in January.

But no hard feelings here. Waddell proposed to Coulon last year in Ireland and is now a happily married man:

Fellow Bachelorette contestant Ben Scott, whom Hartsock said farewell to in week 5, attended the wedding with his fiancé Lindsay Brooke Higgins:

And, proving Bachelorettes and their Bachelors can remain friendly long after the final rose ceremony, Hartscock (who is now officially Desiree Siegfried) tweeted a sweet congratulatory note to the newlyweds:

Aww. It's sweet to see these three contestants find love and continue to think so highly of each other after their appearances on the reality show. Congrats to Zak and Elizabeth!
