It’s official, y’all: Season 15 (and 16) Bachelor alumna Shawntel Newton is off the market! The gorgeous Chico, California native got hitched on May 19 to fiance Paolo Poidmore, and it looks like it was a breathtaking wedding.
Orchestrated by Alpha Lee Events, the wedding took place on a picturesque estate, complete with a lake, ranch house, and vintage candlesticks and mason jars on the tables.
Shawntel tweeted days before the wedding as she headed to pick up her gown, but we didn’t get to see it until now. Her long (past her feet) strapless, sweetheart-neckline dress with lace overlay showed off her dark hair, which was tied up in a low bun and accentuated with white flowers.
Her new hubby, Dr. Poidmore, sported a grey vest and pants, along with a white shirt with sleeves casually rolled up, and a white boutonniere.
Shawntel kept her jewelry simple with a strand of pearls — and even shared the pearl wealth by gifting her bridesmaids with their own fun strands! The bridesmaids wore short strapless dresses in either pearl grey or pale pink.
So, how was Shawntel feeling as she went into her vows? “anxious, excited, and blessed,” she told her wedding planners.
Though we’re still bummed we didn’t get an invite, the wedding looks like the perfect combination of old and new, modern kitsch and vintage elegance. Congratulations to the happy couple!
