Trista Sutter and Ryan Sutter had two best buds by their side for this occasion.

The original Bachelorette couple and their kids Maxwell, 16, and Blakesley, 14, were among the Bachelor Nation stars who went all out to celebrate Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist's televised wedding on Jan. 4.

For the special occasion, Trista stunned in an off-the-shoulder black full-length gown, while her firefighter husband Ryan sported a navy-blue tuxedo. As for Max, the 16-year-old coordinated with his dad by also wearing a dark blue suit, while his sister stepped out in a light pink strapless dress.

The family of four's rare appearance comes more than twenty years after the couple tied the knot in their own on-camera ceremony, setting a precedent for couples to come.

In fact, prior to Gerry and Theresa tying the knot, Trista reflected on the advice she shared with the Golden Bachelor star amid his journey to find love again.

"He was struggling a little bit, just 'I don't know what to do,'" Trista previously told E! News. "And I said, 'You need to find the person not necessarily that you can live with—of course you want to find somebody that you can live with—but you need to find the person that you can't live without."

Wise words that Gerry took to heart—and made sure to share during his proposal to Theresa.

"I came to the realization that you're not the right person for me to live with," the 72-year-old told his now-wife seconds before popping the question during the finale, "You're the person that I can't live without."

But Ryan and Trista weren't the only Bachelor Nation members that attended the nuptials. Keep reading to see all the stars that made an appearance.
