No rose ceremony necessary!
Over the weekend, Jackie tied the knot with Marcus in a beautiful New York ceremony. The bride looked stunning a strapless lace mermaid gown.
Jackie, who met her now hubby on leap day, Feb. 29, 2012, at a NYC bar during a Bachelor-related event, says she knew he was special from the moment she laid eyes on him.
“[Marcus] was my type. He was tall, strong looking, and very handsome, with a genuine smile. How could I pass up meeting THAT guy?” Jackie has said. “And just like that, I walked up to them and reintroduced myself. The rest is history."
Although Jackie didn’t find her Prince Charming within the Bachelor crew (she's also previously dated Bachelor Pad’s Ames Brown and Craig Robinson), she doesn’t regret going on the show. In fact, she thought it was an integral part on her journey to finally finding “the one.”
"It's always amazing for me to think that while The Bachelor didn't work out in my favor, it ultimately lead me to 'the one,'" says Jackie. "If I hadn't been on The Bachelor, I wouldn't have been at the bar that night, and I wouldn't have met Marcus. It constantly reminds me how important each 'little' event in our lives can be."
Congrats to the happy couple!
