Bachelor in Paradise Couple Wed, David Cook Performs First Dance Song

The Bachelor in Paradise alums Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon said “I do” during a ceremony in Rhode Island on Sunday evening (Aug 11), reports People.

Tons of the couples reality friends attended the wedding, including Bachelor and Bachelorette alums Kaitlyn Bristowe, Jason Tartick, Ben Higgins, Evan Bass, Carly Waddell, Becca Tilley, Olivia Caridi, JJ Lane, Dean Unglert, Chris Strandburg, Nick Viall and more. Nick and Dean served as groomsman. Eleven bridesmaids served as attendants.

One more reality star took part in the festivities. American Idol season 7 winner, David Cook, performed the Rob Thomas song “Ever The Same” for the couple’s first dance at the reception.

“He is one of my favorite artists ever and I mean, my favorite American Idol ever, so it’s really cool that he is going to perform at our wedding,” Ashley told Entertainment Tonight at the iHeartRadio’s 102.7 KIIS-FM Wango Tango concert back in June. “He has like, the warmest voice ever,” Ashley added, “He just can like, warm up an entire room, so we love that romanticism.”

The couple exchanged both traditional and personalized vows in a ceremony officiated by Bachelor producer Elan Gale at an intimate church, before heading to their wedding reception.

The bridesmaids wore emerald-green gowns by Tarik Ediz, while Ashley donned an Ines Di Santo ball gown she purchased from Lovella in Glendale and jewels from Brooke Rayn Jewelry. Later, she changed into an Alyne by Rita Vinieris gown from Kinsley James Bridal in West Hollywood for the reception. Jared chose a tuxedo from Black Tux, while his groomsmen also wore tuxes from the brand and Mattarazi Uomo. Naturally, the couple exchanged Neil Lane wedding bands.

“Jared and I from the very beginning have been saying we don’t want our wedding to be a party,” Ashley told People, “We want it to be a romantic experience!”
