“When the moment finally came, I was terrified to see my best man standing in a wedding gown drinking a Kona Beer,” Luyendyk Jr. laughed. “I should have known just by how hard he had tapped me, but it was still a complete surprise. Lauren definitely pulled one over on me and it was hilarious. It honestly lightened the mood and helped me shake my nerves a bit.”
Ultimately, the couple, who are expecting their first child together, did get their Bachelor-perfect first look pictures and walked down the aisle with Bachelor Nation ringleader Chris Harrison as their officiant.
“He’s a true professional,” Luyendyk Jr. recalled of Harrison. “It was great to hang out with him leading up to the wedding and it really allowed us to get to know each other outside of the Bachelor world. His speech was clever, funny and touching all at the same time. He really nailed it.”
Harrison’s professionalism aside, props for the cheeky wedding day joke, Lauren.
