Bros are forever, as evidenced by Sean Lowe’s ever-lasting bromance with Season 8 Bachelorette pal Tony Pieper. Just because they all vied for Emily Maynard’s southern, well-manicured hand during season 8 of The Bachelorette doesn’t mean the former contestants aren’t still close.

Since hitting it off during filming, the two have remained pals even though they rarely get to chill (Tony lives in Portland while Sean’s been splitting his time between LA and Dallas). So, now that Sean has announced his January 26, 2014 wedding date to winner Catherine Giudici on Good Morning America, Tony couldn’t wait a moment to congratulate his good friend.

“I was texting with him after the announcement,” Tony exclusively tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “He sounded really, really happy.” Well, obvi. Can you even imagine how gorgeous these two are going to look on their wedding day?!

“It couldn’t happen to a better guy,” Tony continues. “Since the day I met Sean, I could tell he really wanted to settle down and start a family. More than anyone else, I knew his heart was in the right place.”

Tony continues. “He’s a romantic. He didn’t go on the show for any other reason than to find love. I couldn’t be happier he found Catherine. I wish nothing but happiness for them. And for them to push through happiness while in this crazy spotlight, it shows they’ve got something special and real.”

Our thoughts exactly. Well, happiness and an invitation in the mail to us right this very moment...
