Former 'Bachelorette' Winner Ed Swiderski Marries Gorgeous TV Anchor (PHOTO)

The second time around proved a charm for Bachelorette contestant Ed Swiderski, who fell in love and proposed to Jillian Harris in Season 5 but broke up their engagement one year later. Swiderski married Natalie Bomke, a Fox 32 TV anchor, in Chicago this weekend, and the photos prove their night was magical.

Swiderski and Bomke were married on Saturday at sunset on the 25th floor of the Crown in Chicago's Tribune Tower. The beautiful bride wore a short, lace Monique Lhuillier dress with a long train and the former reality TV star looked handsome in a gray suit. The couple invited about 100 guests and danced their first dance as husband and wife to John Legend's "All of Me."

And how's this for a cute nod to the show that made him famous? Swiderski surprised everyone by giving each mother in the room a long-stem red rose and asking them, "Will you accept this rose?"

Bomke posted this amazing photo on her Instagram:
