J.P. Rosenbaum & Ashley Hebert: Secrets From Their Bachelorette Wedding Special
J.P. Rosenbaum popped the question to Ashley Hebert in the summer of 2011 on “The Bachelorette,” and earlier this month they became the second couple from that show to walk down the aisle.
And fans can watch for themselves when ABC airs “The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.’s Wedding,” this Sunday on ABC.
Neither Ashley, 28, nor J.P., 35, showed any signs of nerves leading up to their December 1 wedding.
“Marrying her just feels right,” J.P. told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman on their big day.
“I know weddings bring a lot of anxieties, but I actually feel so at peace with everything,” Ashley told Laura. “And I’m excited to see everybody, to see J.P., to declare our love in front of everyone.”
The couple’s wedding prep was all captured, including practicing their first kiss as husband and wife.
But the day before the wedding, Ashley joined the most special women in her life for a bridal brunch.
“Each and every one of you has touched me in a certain way, and touched J.P. in a certain way, and I’m so happy,” Ashley said at the bridal event.
But moving forward, will Ashley change her name?
“She’s going to change her name [to] Dr. Rosenbaum,” J.P. laughed.
“Actually, I’m going to change the name right away. Yeah… like in a couple hours,” she laughed.
The couple asked “Bachelor” franchise host Chris Harrison to officiate their “I do’s” for the ABC special.
And there were plenty of former contestants from the franchise over the years in attendance, like the now-married Molly and Jason Mesnick.
“Looking back are you happy you did it on television?” Laura asked the pair, about their own wedding, which was also televised.
“Oh, 100-percent,” Molly said. “We have no regrets whatsoever, it was an amazing experience for us and, look at us now.”
Now pregnant, Molly is due this spring.
Also on hand at Ashley and J.P.’s nuptials – the first “Bachelorette” success story – Trista and Ryan Sutter.
“It was almost exactly nine years ago that you guys did this little shindig. Do you remember it like it was yesterday?” Laura asked.
“Like it was yesterday. No, I’m old and I have a mommy brain and I don’t remember it, no I’m just kidding,” Trista laughed.
“It does seem like it was yesterday, though, time has gone by pretty fast,” Ryan said.
“The Bachelorette” wedding airs this Sunday, December 16 at 9/8c on ABC.
