The love bond we made with first ever Bachelorette Trista Sutter is one that will last a lifetime, because she’s the special gal that proved juggling 25 strangers isn’t just a man’s game. And, her match-made-in-heaven with winner and now hubby Ryan Sutter gives our hearts hope every time we’re at a singles mixer, clutching our watered-down mojito like the lifeline it is. Suffice it to say, everything she does is magical to us, including posting this beyond magical photo of her decade-ago self from her wedding to Ryan.

The author and mother of two, Max, 6, and Blakesley, 5, posted this photo with the caption, “Weddings on the brain, thinking of the special weekend we're missing to celebrate @michaelstag 's wedding, so had to post a #tbt of my wedding day..naturally. ;)” What special weekend is she referring to missing? The blissful union between fellow Bachelor Nation card member Michael Stagliano and his perfect person Emily Tuchscherer, which is happening this weekend.

We miss us a little Trista from our lives and are excited to see more of her this summer when she and Ryan will appear on Marriage Boot Camp. Don’t worry! The duo isn’t appearing on the couple’s therapy show because their marriage is at threat level red, they’re just going on to strengthen their bond. Awwwwwwww. That’s fabulous, Trista. And don’t worry, your bond with us is unbreakable.     

What do you think of this photo — have you ever seen a happier pair?
