Stanton — who walked down the aisle in a Monique Lhuillier gown as Taylor Swift's Wildest Dreams played — was a contestant on Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor in 2016 before joining the cast of Bachelor in Paradise the following year.

When it came to her nuptials, "I wanted everything to be very timeless," says Stanton. "It's an elevated modern garden wedding, very simple."
