We fell in love with Bachelor 15 contestant Shawntel Newton from the moment she shimmied her way into Brad Womack's love chamber and announced that she was a funeral director. Totally weird and amazing, much like Shawnty herself.
Sadly, this gal didn't win Brad's heart (she was eliminated after her hometown date in Chico, California), but she's more than moved on with her fiance, orthodontist Paolo Poidmore.
Shawntel and Paolo are getting married this coming weekend (May 19) and Shawnty couldn't be more pumped! "Happy #weddingweekend!!!" she tweeted on May 17. "Family is starting to arrive and I'm getting so excited!!"
This happy couple met back in April 2012 after being set up through a client at Shawntel's funeral service (we can’t even touch that one). They met face-to-face on May 22 for a romantic Bachelor-themed date, and the rest is history! Paolo popped the question on October 27, 2012, during a Bible study session (OMG, God approves!), and yes — Shawntel's vintage-inspired ring is off-the-heezy beautiful.
Check back in with Wetpaint Entertainment for details about Shawntel and Paolo's wedding, and make sure to keep this happy couple in your thoughts on the 19th!
