DeAnna Pappas is a Bachelorette
The reality star, 29, married fiancé Stephen Stagliano, 27, on Saturday in her home state of Georgia.
The bride walked down the aisle in a strapless Disney Bridal wedding gown
with a birdcage veil and cowboy boots.
"They were giddy with excitement," an observer tells PEOPLE. "She looked incredibly happy."
It's been a reality romance for the pair, who were set up by Stephen's twin brother, Michael Stagliano from Jillian Harris's season of The Bachelorette
, and his then-girlfriend Holly Durst, from Matt Grant's season of The Bachelor
(Michael and Durst, who have since broken up, went on to win last season
of Bachelor Pad
, which ended shockingly when Michael was blindsided
by the on-air announcement of Durst's engagement
to a fellow contestant.)
Stephen, a high school teacher, popped the question
in August 2010.
Pappas, who was notoriously rejected
by Brad Womack on his first go-around as The Bachelor
, went on to become The Bachelorette
and got engaged to Jesse Csincsak
in July 2008. The couple broke off their engagement
later that year.
