Congratulations are in order for Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon!

The Bachelor Nation couple tied the knot in Newport in the groom's home state of Rhode Island on Sunday, PEOPLE reports. "It was a beautiful, stunning, gorgeous celebration filled with so much love," a source tells E! News of the couple's big day.

Additionally, the wedding decor, florals and design were by Birch Event Design. Of course, several members from their franchise family were there, including Nick Viall, Dean Unglert, Becca Tilly, Amanda Stanton, couple Jason Tartick and Kaitlyn Bristowe and Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone.

Iaconetti and Haibon celebrated with their friends at a rehearsal dinner and party the night before the wedding. Guests posted a slew of pics on Instagram.

The dynamic duo's road to the altar has been a long one. Fans met Iaconetti on Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor and then met Haibon on Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette.

While neither snagged the final rose, they continued to look for love on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise. While the two went on a date, Haibon ended up dumping Iaconetti. Still, they remained friends and even had a few flings.

"I never felt like it was over between us after Paradise, which is why I said we're still going to be friends," he said during their The Story of Us YouTube video. "Like, it just didn't feel over."

They then reunited on season three of Bachelor of Paradise. After experiencing their fair share of drama, they decided to date other people. Haibon went on to appear on Bachelor in Paradise Australia, and Iaconetti starred on Bachelor Winter Games, where she developed a relationship with Kevin Wendt

Before Bachelor Winter Games aired, Iaconetti and Haibon went on a trip to St. Lucia with Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert. At the airport, Haibon confessed his feelings to Iaconetti and kissed her. Ultimately, she decided to continue dating Wendt. However, she made it clear on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast that "there was no crossover" and that she "never cheated on Kevin or anything like that." 

Iaconetti later broke up with Wendt, and Haibon decided to pursue her one more time—this time with a love letter.

"In a way, he was harboring feelings for a while, but he didn't want to come out with them until he was 100 percent," Iaconetti told Ben Higgins on their podcast. "Honestly, he kind of said he needed an earthquake, and, like, he got his earthquake. Then, he told me, and then he's been, like, super happy and amazing. Like, he was in such this dark place for a while and now he's just like a mush ball in the best way, and he's, like, so full of love."

The two moved in together and got engaged during a season five appearance on Bachelor in Paradise. The couple kept fans updated throughout the wedding planning process, too. From sharing pictures of herself dress shopping to featuring footage from her bachelorette bash, the bride posted it all. 

"He is my person," she said on the iHeartRadio podcast. "He is my soul mate."
