Rachel Lindsay, the first Black Bachelorette, has married Bryan Abasolo, the winner of her series, in Mexico this past weekend.
“Rachel was the epitome of elegance and grace as she walked down the aisle towards Bryan. The ceremony was filled with so much joy, love and laughter,” wedding planner Michael Russo told PEOPLE.
“As they exchanged their personal handwritten vows, you could feel the unbridled emotion and powerful connection between them.”
Bryan proposed to Rachel two years ago.
“It was like an out-of-body experience to hear the words that he was saying to me,” Lindsay previously told PEOPLE. “I blanked out on what I was saying — I meant it and it was from the heart, but it was just so surreal that it was happening. I mean we’re in Spain, we’re on top of this castle. I’m standing in front of the man of my dreams, and now he’s about to get down on one knee. And so the moment he did it, it was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is happening!’ I couldn’t do anything but scream. Like that’s all I could do, I was so happy.”
