Congratulations are in order! The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise alum Ashley Salter married her college sweetheart Austin Brannen on Saturday, September 10.

The happy couple, who recently welcomed their first child, tied the knot at a romantic wedding ceremony by the ocean at the Atlantis Hotel & Casino in the Bahamas in front of their closest family members and friends.

The 26-year-old reality star and the commercial real estate broker first dated while attending Auburn University. They later rekindled their romance when Salter returned to Georgia after filming season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise. They got engaged in September 2015.

Earlier this year, the pair welcomed a son, Brooks, just two months after Us Weekly exclusively revealed they were expecting. “Long stormy night brings a beautiful angel this morning. Brooks Hartman Brannen 7lbs 2oz 4/7/16,” Salter captioned an Instagram photo of her newborn son in April.

Leading up to Saturday night’s nuptials, the former hairstylist shared her excitement about tying the knot. “My last day as a single woman #saltertothealter #brannengotthefinalrose,” she captioned a black-and-white Instagram shot of herself in a bikini on the beach.

Salter previously dated season 19 Bachelor Chris Soules and Paradise castmates Dan Cox and Nick Peterson.
