Colton Underwood is a married man.
The former Bachelor education star married political strategist Jordan Brown on Saturday at the Carneros Resort and Spa in Napa Valley, California, according to People.
Underwood told the media outlet that the event included a “disco-themed pool party,” while Brown noted that it was important for the couple to get married outdoors: “We wanted trees nearby and sunshine.” In addition, Stanford University’s artistic swim team performed in the pool as guests exited the ceremony.
“We wanted to break some of the traditional norms about what a ceremony and a wedding look like,” Underwood said People. “And for the entire weekend, we recognize that many of the people who are in attendance, both from our families and some of our friends, this will be their first same-sex wedding. We really want to make something special out of it.”
The couple wore custom Tom Ford suits: Underwood’s was green and Ford’s was blue, matching the natural environment of their surroundings.
The ceremony also included a photo display inspired by a coffee table book called Lovingly, which consists of “images of men in love throughout history,” Underwood said. The exhibit also featured love letters written by queer people in the 18th and 19th centuries that were banned or had to be sent secretly, he said.
Brown added: “It helps us pay tribute to the people who paved the way for all same-sex couples to be able to marry now.”
The couple met in April 2021 at a party in Los Angeles and got engaged in February 2022 in Big Sur, California.
In addition to starring on ABC’s The Bachelor, Underwood also appeared on The Bachelorette And Bachelor in Paradise before revealing he is gay in a 2021 interview with Good morning America. He continued with his story Colton is coming, a Netflix series about his experience to be released later that year.
