Time flies when you're in love.

It's hard to believe that Saturday officially marked the one-year anniversary since Ben Higgins first laid eyes on Lauren Bushnell during The Bachelor. But 12 months after their very first rose ceremony, the pair decided to celebrate the milestone in Las Vegas.

As cameras rolled for their new Freeform reality show titled Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, the happy couple headed to the iHeartRadio Music Festival where they enjoyed the sounds of Sam Hunt, Drake and Twenty One Pilots.

They also ran into a few familiar faces including some of Ben's exes. But don't worry, this is Bachelor Nation we're talking about here.

Former contestants JoJo Fletcher, Becca Tilley, Haley Ferguson and Emily Ferguson were all spotted hanging out with the duo at some point during the two-day festival. And no, it wasn't the most dramatic festival in Vegas history.

"I heart @laurenbushnell #iheartfestival," Ben wrote outside the Bellagio Resort as fellow Bachelorette contestant Wells Adams photobombed the snap. Lauren added, "iHeart @higgins.ben #iheartradio."

During the weekend, the happily engaged couple was able to get away any enjoy some family time. The pair enjoyed a group dinner at Scarpetta inside The Cosmopolitan before kissing on the red carpet and meeting celebs including Team USA gymnast Laurie Hernandez.

"One year ago today my life completely changed. So incredibly blessed to have met this amazing human," Lauren gushed on Instagram. Ben added, "Happy one year from meeting you babe! No better way to celebrate than #iheartfestival."

With another reality show planned for the couple, some fans may be worried that more cameras could mean more problems for the happy pair. But both Lauren and Ben assure followers that their love is strong enough. 

"Regardless of what we do, whether it's a TV show or it comes to our jobs, our relationship has to come first," Lauren previously shared with E! News. "We've both agreed upon that since the beginning and with this it's no different. Nothing is going to get in the way, and it if does, we're going to have to reevaluate at that time."

Congrats you two! Here's to many years of love and friendship.
