The big day is finally here! Bachelor in Paradise couple, Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk finally walked down the aisle on Friday, April 16. The duo tied the knot at The Olana in Dallas, Texas, surrounded by 20 guests, many of whom took to social media to show a more intimate look at the wedding.
The couple first met in 2017 while filming season 4 of Bachelor In Paradise, and though their love survived through the finale, Gottschalk purposely did not propose during the show. At the time they were living in different cities and felt they needed more time together for their relationship to flourish.
A Bachelor Nation success story! Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk are one of the rare duos to endure life after Bachelor in Paradise — and they’re finally tying the knot after numerous pandemic-related obstacles. The wedding was set to take place in April 2021 after being originally scheduled for May 2020. Gates mentioned to fans that she’s had to replan the wedding a total of three times and that at one point she “totally stopped” planning because of the coronavirus crisis. She even mentioned that if the wedding wasn’t possible by December 2021, they would just elope by themselves.
Here’s a closer look into the moments leading up to the couple’s very intimate wedding in Dallas, Texas, and their honeymoon in Hawaii.
