Sometimes couples who meet in paradise don't always have a happily ever after! ABC gives lonely contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette one more shot at finding love with the spin-off series Bachelor in Paradise — and even though the series ends with engagements, some of the couples never even make it down the aisle.
Most of the couples will leave paradise engaged and seemingly in love, but it's hard for them to maintain that once they get back into the real world. But there is one couple who is beating the odds and proving that the process does work! Evan Bass and Carly Waddell met during Season 3 of BiP and they are living proof that love does exist, and it can be found in paradise — and last month, the couple returned to where they met in Puerto Vallarta to tie the knot!
"Evan and I had a dream wedding on Saturday. It was truly the perfect day with friends and family in Mexico. There was no better way to celebrate the start of our forever journey together," Carly wrote in her touching Instagram tribute to her wedding day. "The setting, in a garden overlooking the ocean, created a stunning visual that I don't think anyone will forget. Evan's children delivered heartfelt and hysterical speeches that had everyone laughing and crying simultaneously. The love from Bachelor Nation has been overwhelming and we are so grateful to all who helped make this day amazing. I'm so happy and so in love with this man."
On their wedding day, Carly not only became a wife, she also became a stepmom to Evan's three sons — and the newlyweds didn't wait very long before making a new addition to their family because Carly is currently pregnant with their first child together. "Evan and I are so excited to announce we are having a baby!!!" she wrote in her Instagram announcement. "What a beautiful, wonderful, wild year it has been and the adventure continues Feb 2018!"
