UPDATE 10/15/13: Although gorgeous Canadian Bachelor alum Jessie Sulidis planned originally to marry hockey pro fiancé in August, it seems the cute couple just can't wait! On October 12, Jessie tweeted "Can't wait to marry my bestfriend @jhank86 on Dec 22, 2013." We can't wait, either! Especially now that we know we'll get two Bachelor weddings within a month. Sean and Catherine announced their January 26, 2014 wedding date just two days after Jessie's update!
Original Story 6/21/13: It seems like just yesterday The Bachelor Season 14 and Bachelor Pad 1’s Jessie Sulidis got a big surprise when professional hockey player boyfriend Jordan Henry proposed. The two were off on a romantic vacation in Jamaica a few weeks before their one-year anniversary, having dinner on a beach, when she got the surprise of a lifetime.
“He reserved the Candlelight Dinner table for us with a private table on a beach, and our own butler,” Jessie told Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively about the couple’s trip to paradise. “There was a rose on the table, a special menu... It was almost like a Bachelor date. In fact, I was like ‘Is this a 1-on-1 date? Am I getting sent home?’” the Canadian gal joked.
But although it’s been only a month since the gorgeous gal said “yes” to her man, the two have already set a date for their wedding!
Jessie tweeted on June 21, “So excited to get the official word that our wedding date is confirmed! Friends and family , @jhank86 and I will be married on Aug 2, 2014!” We’re hugely biased since we fondly remember Jessie as the hottest summer girl on Bachelor Pad, so an August wedding seems perfect for her.
The pair first met on St. Patrick’s Day in 2012, when Jordan’s hockey team was playing in Toronto. He and his team happened to be in the same bar as Jessie and a girlfriend, and it’s been a fairytale ever since. Well, sort of. They’ve certainly had a lot of obstacles to getting where they are. Between his hockey travel schedule and her family ties, it’s been more difficult for Jessie and Jordan to in the same place at the same time than they’d like. We’re stoked the couple is on the road to their perfect ending / beginning.
Where will they get married? What will she wear? Inquiring minds want to know...
