Bachelor Nation's many couples understand better than most that every rose has its thorn.
And though Tartick spoke about "tidal waves of depression" following his and Bristowe's August split announcement, he had a far rosier outlook after running into the onetime Bachelorette at former host Chris Harrison's Nov. 4 wedding to Lauren Zima.
"Before we went into that weekend, I had not seen her once and the last time I saw her was when I moved out," Tartick explained on his Trading Secrets podcast. "And I would describe it that there was a lot of energy that we were both holding and it wasn't maybe the best energy. And then when we saw each other, didn't know what to expect, but it was great. It was friendly, it was cordial, it was respectful."
It may have even left him wanting to kick his heels up and shout.
"I didn't dance with her, but there were times I would dance and she was at the table. Like, 'Shout' came on," he recalled. "I started dancing and at that point, I felt like such a friendly, healthy place from our conversation that I looked at her and pointed at her like…'This is my song, but you know it.' I was like, 'You gotta get out here.'"
And while the Harrison-Zima union may have drawn the biggest Bachelor Nation crowd, with everyone from Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham to Sean and Catherine Lowe to JoJo Fletcher, Trista Sutter and Wells Adams throwing their hands up at the Austin bash, it was hardly the only wedding to feature the stars of the franchise.
