Bachelor Nation’s Nick Viall is a married man after marrying Natalie Joy.

Viall, 43, and Joy, 25, tied the knot in a wedding ceremony at her family’s 300-acre farm in Georgia on Saturday, April 27, People reports.

The 170-person guest list included Bachelor Nation’s Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconetti and Ben Higgins while Victoria Fuller was Joy’s maid of honor. Other reality stars, including Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney and Jojo Siwa were also in attendance.

The newlyweds were first linked in 2019 and went public with their romance in early 2021. Weeks after news broke of their relationship, Viall revealed that he first connected with Joy after she slid into his DMs.

“It was very romantic,” he joked during a February 2021 episode of his “Viall Files” podcast. The reality TV star said Joy was ready to settle down before he was, but the thought of losing her was enough to make him commit.

“We kind of kept hanging out, and she finally got to a point where she was like, ‘I want to date,’ and I was kind of like, ‘I don’t know,’” he shared. “She just was like, ‘OK, this is what I want. It’s fine, no big deal, but I’m gonna go do my thing,’ and she did, and I was like, ‘What?!’ … She went and showed me exactly what I’d be missing.”

That June, the duo took their relationship to the next level by getting a dog together. “This right here might be a top 5 moment of my life right here,” Viall captioned an Instagram photo of Joy snoozing on a chair with their puppy, Jeff, asleep in her arms.
