Ed Swiderski is ready for his happily ever after!
The Bachelorette star, who won the heart of Jillian Harris back in 2009, married Fox 32 TV anchor Natalie Bomke in Chicago this weekend.
“One magical night!” the new bride wrote on Instagram Sunday afternoon after wearing a stunning Monique Lhuillier wedding dress. “#Chicago @eswiderski.”
According to People, who first broke the wedding news, the sunset ceremony was held at the open-air veranda of The Crown on the 25th floor of the iconic Tribune Tower.
Close to 100 guests watched the couple say “I Do” and have their first dance to John Legend‘s “All of Me.” “I feel like the luckiest man on Earth,” Swiderski told the publication after the perfect evening.
Fans first became familiar with Swiderski when he appeared on season 5 of The Bachelorette. He proposed to Harris on the show’s finale but they would ultimately break off their engagement a year later.
“We’re both pretty sad,” the technology consultant told E! News at the time. “There’s no scandal, just little bit of heartbreak.”
At Saturday night’s wedding ceremony, however, it was all about happiness and humor as the couple poked fun at the groom’s past on reality TV.
“My favorite part of the ceremony was a playful surprise by the groom,” Big City Bride wedding planner Susan Cordogan shared with People. “He presented each mother with a long-stem red rose and popped the famous Bachelor question, ‘Will you accept this rose?'”
Where is Chris Harrison when you need him? Congratulations to the happy couple!
