They do! Bachelor alum Nikki Ferrell married her fiancé, Tyler Vanloo, in a romantic ceremony on Saturday, October 8, Us Weekly can confirm.

The couple tied the knot in an afternoon celebration in front of family and friends, including former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, who appeared on season 18 of The Bachelor with the bride and posted a Snachat video on Saturday with Ferrell from the wedding reception.

Ferrell, 29, who memorably won the final rose but no proposal from Juan Pablo Galavis, announced her engagement to Vanloo in January of this year.

The pediatric nurse shared a happy pic on Instagram on Thursday, October 6, that showed her and her soon-to-be husband holding their marriage license outside the Jackson County Court House in Missouri. "We gon git mawwied y'all," she captioned the snap.

The sales exec proposed on bended knee when the pair were on vacation in Colorado and the reality star shared photos of the snowy moment on Instagram, writing, "And on the last day of vacation this happened! I can't wait to marry my best friend. Over the moon happy right now!"

Ferrell and Galavis dated for seven months and appeared on VH1's Couples Therapy before splitting in October 2014.

"I tried really hard, and he tried too," she later said.

The newlyweds were friends for several years before they began dating. A year ago Ferrell shared some sweet PDA pics on Instagram, writing, "Sneaking in a #tbt from a couple of years ago to when this guy was my best friend and I wouldn't really admit to anything more…but we all knew."
