Is it just me, or has anyone else dreamed of replicating Bella and Edward’s epic wedding from Breaking Dawn? Everything from the dress to the flowers was picture perfect, so it’s no wonder that brides everywhere started trying to achieve their own Bella look. Now, unfortunately we can’t replicate the groom, but season 22 Bachelor contestants Arlie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham were about as close to perfection as you can get.
“Everything that I imagined, it was that and 10 times better,” Burnham, 27, told Us Weekly. The wedding took place at Haiku Mill on Maui, Hawaii, with lush scenery and a spectacular view.
“Lauren’s gown was created from a very romantic and imaginative place,” said designer Hayley Paige. “I love that she’s now expecting because that, honestly, did not impact the design at all. I really wanted it to just be something that felt true to her and from her original vision. That was special.”
Yep, that’s right. Lauren is expecting a baby girl, not that you could really tell under the beautiful layers of tulle in her custom gown. Both Arlie and Lauren are in complete agreement though, they can’t wait to start their little family, and the wedding of their dreams was the perfect place to begin.
“We’ve always been on the same page about everything,” said Lauren. “I see it all – our little girl running around the house, our family together, being there for you when things get hard, getting and old gray together, even though I have the gray part already covered.”
