Shawntel Newton just tied the knot with her hot orthodontist fiance in a romantic ceremony on May 19... and now the new Mr. and Mrs. Paolo Poidmore are off in Hawaii to celebrate!

The former Bachelor 15 beauty, who Brad Womack sent home after a hometown date, is now honeymooning on the Hawaiian island of Maui, and she’s posting plenty of photos from her fun-filled vacay.

Since arriving, Shawntel and her new hubby have been relaxing, reading, drinking Hawaiian coffee, going to the beach, and enjoying as much of their island trip as possible. “Cheers!” she wrote on May 21, along with a pic of she and Paolo soaking up the sun poolside.

She’s posted plenty of cute couple photos, and the lovebirds even took a break from working on their tans to try out the pool slide at the Grand Wailea resort.

On May 22, Season 4 Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas Stagliano — who is also married now, and like Shawntel, not to anyone from the Bachelor franchise — tweeted, “Congratulations on your wedding!! May God bless you with a loving family and many many years of happiness!  Xoxo”

Shawntel replied, “@DeAnnaPappas Thank you! We truly are blessed with each other. Hope all is well with you guys ☺”
