Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Drew Wedding Inspiration from the Most Unexpected Place

ICYMI: Bachelor alums Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham officially tied the knot in Hawaii over the weekend.

But despite the lush greenery and cool ocean breeze, the couple didn’t go with a Hawaiian-themed wedding. As they told Us Weekly, their nuptials were predominantly inspired by the most unexpected thing ever: the movie Twilight: Breaking Dawn. (Take a moment to process.)

How—and more importantly—why? Well, as Luyendyk Jr. told the mag, “Almost every inspiration photo that Lauren would text to me would be from the movie. I loved it so much. It looked like a dream in there.”

We can’t say we noticed the vampire vibes in their wedding pics, but one thing’s for sure: Our money’s on them naming baby girl Luyendyk-Burnham Bella.
