Emily Maynard has finally found true love (maybe), but not on national television with a revolving door of beefcake suitors. The former The Bachelor winner and The Bachelorette star married fiancé Tyler Johnson on Saturday night in a secret ceremony at Johnson's family farm in South Carolina, reports People.
The couple, who got engaged in January, invited 200 friends and family members to the farm for an engagement party, but had secretly been planning a surprise wedding for the past three months.
"God brought us together," Maynard told People. "He's given me such peace about everything. I'm so grateful I met him."
Johnson, 28, is an automotive management consultant. Maynard's 8-year-old daughter Ricki served as the maid of honor. The trio plans to move into a home in Charlotte.
Maynard has been one of the Bachelor franchise's biggest catches. The blonde from North Carolina won the fifteenth season of The Bachelor and got engaged to Brad Womack on television, but the couple split in June of 2011. Maynard was chosen as the prize for Season 8 of The Bachelorette and got engaged to Jef Holm, but they broke up a few months later.
