Even though neither of them made a lasting love connection on their respective seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, everything is coming up roses for Peyton Wright and Chris Lambton.

The couple, who met through mutual Bachelor pals at a 2010 golf tournament in North Carolina, currently co-host HGTV's home gardening show Going Yard. And they celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on May 5.

"I'm so glad Andy Baldwin left me standing there on that aircraft carrier," Wright tells PEOPLE of being sent home after a two-on-one date in season 10 of The Bachelor. "I'm glad it didn't go any further because it wouldn't have worked out."

Lambton says the same was true for him when The Bachelorette's Ali Fedotowsky asked him not to propose because she was in love with the other season 6 finalist, Roberto Martinez.



"We both knew we were both good friends and not husband and wife material," Lambton explains. "I love her for the fact that she didn't try to get me to propose if it wasn't true love. Every day I thank my lucky stars I was on that show because I met the woman of my dreams, my wife."
