Another couple from Bachelor Nation made it down the aisle recently. Former Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. and his wife Lauren Burnham had a Twilight themed wedding in Hawaii this month and get ready to see all the photos from the star-studded event. The couple first met on Arie's season of The Bachelor, which premiered last year in January 2018.
The pair tied the knot at the scenic Haiku Mill venue in Maui, Hawaii and their wedding theme was the iconic vampire book and movie Twilight: Breaking Dawn. "Almost every inspiration photo that Lauren would text to me would be from the movie," the couple's wedding planner, Kimiko Hosaki of K.H & co., told Us Weekly.
The wedding was a huge success in the bride's eyes. "Everything that I imagined, it was that and 10 times better," the 27-year-old newlywed told Us Weekly. Burnham adored the Twilight theme as well, and said, "I loved it so much; it looked like a dream in there".
New photos have now been released so you can see exactly what a Twilight themed, Bachelor Nation wedding looks like. Check out the photos from Arie and Lauren's wedding.
Several members of Bachelor Nation were in attendance. Bachelor host Chris Harrison, former Bachelor Sean Lowe and wife Catherine Giudici, former contestant Seinne Fleming were among those who celebrated in Hawaii with the newlyweds.
Not everyone is a fan of Arie and Lauren's wedding Twilight theme. Some people took to social media to roast the Bachelor Nation couple for actually doing a Twilight inspired wedding.

Not everyone is a fan of Arie and Lauren, period. The couple is one of the least liked in Bachelor history. Arie famously dumped Becca Kuffrin on national television after proposing to her in the season finale. He ended up changing his mind and instead went after runner up Lauren Burnham after already breaking up with her during the show, and fans were not all too pleased.
Despite the public backlash, it looks like the couple is going strong. They have already made it down the aisle, and will even be welcoming a baby girl into their family this year. They got engaged in March 2018 on the show and moved in together in Phoenix, Arizona in April 2018, according to US Weekly.
