Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum have made it official with a big, white wedding (OMG, they're man and wife!) and the time has come to walk down memory lane and revisit the key moments in Team Cupcake's relationship. Better grab a box of tissues, because heaving sobs are a requirement of reading this list.
May 23, 2011: Ashley and J.P. Meet During The Bachelorette's Premiere J.P. swept Ashley off her feet when he showed up without any props (just his smile, guys, just his smile) and told her how beautiful she was. Sigh, memories!
June 6, 2011: Ashley and J.P. Go On Their First One-On-One Date J.P. and Ashley had a quiet date at her pad in front of a roaring fire — and yes, they made out on of terrifying animal skin rug while wearing pajamas.
June 27, 2011: Ashley and J.P. Go On Their Second One-On-One Date Team Cupcake travelled to Victoria Peak outside of Hong Kong, where they chatted about their past relationships, "ate dinner," and made out to the dulcet sounds of vaguely ethnic music.
July 18, 2011: Ashley Visits J.P.'s Hometown In Roslyn, New York Ashley and J.P. went rollerskating in a terrifying (er, romantic) abandoned rink, and then settled down for a carb-filled evening with the fam-fam. Spoiler alert: everyone loved Ashley.
August 1, 2011: J.P. Proposes to Ashley In Fiji After rejecting Ben Flajnik and his wine-loving self, Ashley accepted J.P.'s proposal while standing on a beautiful beach in Fiji. We're ugly-crying just thinking about it.

March 28, 2012: Ash and J.P. Move To New Jersey Ashley and J.P. decided to leave the Big Apple and move to Princeton, New Jersey (we know, fear) in order to get out of the city.

Celebrate the Holidays as Husband and Wife Hot off the heels of their wintery wedding (read: super sunny wedding), Ashley and J.P. jetted off to Maine to spend the holidays with Ash's sister and the rest of their family.

J.P. opened up about the taboo topic, saying "Those are their own personal beliefs and we're not going to judge them. We do our thing, they do their thing." Translation: their thing = having tons of sex.
