Clare Crawley Is Married! The Former Bachelorette Ties the Knot 3 Years After Quitting the Show

It’s official: Clare Crawley is off the market.

This week, the former Bachelorette married her beau, Ryan Dawkins. According to People, the couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Sacramento, California. (Psst, her new husband isn’t affiliated with The Bachelor franchise.)

Crawley celebrated the special occasion by sharing a slideshow of photos on Instagram and writing, “Mr. And Mrs. Dawkins!”

The wedding announcement shouldn’t come as a huge surprise because Crawley has been sharing details about her planning process on social media. In a now-deleted Instagram Story, she revealed that her original wedding dress was stolen after someone broke into her car. Luckily, she found a replacement that became her “dream” gown.

“In the moment, I was like ‘Ughhhhh, what do I do?’” she said. “And I thought, ‘It’s OK. It’s about the moment and what we’re celebrating. I can wear anything, and I’ll be happy that we're getting married.’”

Crawley’s fame is a result of The Bachelor franchise, where she was a contestant on season 18 before becoming the lead of The Bachelorette season 16. Shortly after filming began, she had fallen head over heels for one of the contestants, Dale Moss—so much so that she decided to quit the show to pursue the relationship. (As a result, ABC brought in Tayshia Adams for the rest of the season.) As you can imagine, Crawley’s romance with Dale didn’t last very long.

It seems Crawley has finally found her happily ever after.
