Ashley & J.P. Share Their Wedding Day with Their Fans
The wedding special started off with a recap of Ashley and J.P.’s love story from “The Bachelorette”. It was really fun to see again, especially knowing the outcome! It was one of the best (if not the best) finales in “Bachelor” history.
Then, they showed what their life is like now living in Princeton, N.J. Ashley is doing her pediatric dental residency in Philadelphia and J.P. is still working as a construction manager in New York City. One thing is for sure; these two are clearly in love. It’s so fun to watch them together.
In Manhattan, Ashley and J.P. met up with their families to let them both know that they set a date for the wedding, and it was back on December 1st. They both love each other’s families and that is so important. Even Ashley’s sister who initially didn’t like J.P. gave a toast and officially welcomed him to the family.
Interesting side note, they had their little engagement/set the date party at the Empire Hotel, and that’s where my engagement party was! The people I work with were nice enough to throw one for me three years ago, and I think that is a good omen for them as things have worked out better than I could have ever imagined for myself!
Then they met up with their wedding planner, Mindy Weiss. She spoke with both of them about what their personal styles are and what colors they were thinking about. I love Ashley’s choices. She likes champagne and a slight dusty rose color. Oh wow, they each have nine members of their bridal party. That’s huge!
Then they went to a park and talked about how much they love each other and how they both don’t even feel an inkling of cold feet. It was funny though because it was typical “Bachelorette” style to have a picnic and drink wine in the park. J.P. brought out their wedding photo from their fake wedding in Taiwan. It was so cute, he asked her if she knew then that they would get married and she said “Yes! Why do you think you were wearing that suit?!” Her other dates that day were in the ugliest outfits!
Ashley and J.P. met with their wedding planner again to see all of the things she put together for them. There were table settings, cake, and flowers. She even had designer dresses for their dog Boo. They picked out their favors that were forget-me-nots. J.P. got choked up reading the sweet poem that was attached to them.
