“We wanted the atmosphere of our wedding to be traditional in a sense, but also playful, fun and unique,” says JoJo. “We planned for a long time, so we wanted it to be spot on!”

In fact, JoJo and Jordan had instant chemistry during their 2016 season of the reality dating series, and he ended up proposing. They began wedding planning in 2019 (after Jordan proposed a second time on camera), but the pandemic disrupted their best plans.

“We had a date in 2020 and then we had a date in 2021,” says Jordan. “We always thought the world would go back to normal, but it didn’t!”

Now that the couple is enjoying the bliss of the newly married couple, they are both grateful for how far they’ve come. “Jordan is everything I was looking for in a man,” says JoJo. “I’m just so ready for this next chapter of our lives to begin!”
