It seems like just yesterday Ashley Ianconetti was sobbing on Bachelor in Paradise unable to get Jared Haibon’s affection. Who knew as time passed he would realize she was everything he wanted and more. Then, fans saw her fairytale become reality when they become engaged. Finally, in August 2019, she married her prince charming. Now, they are still happily in love and celebrated their one year wedding anniversary.
Ashley and Jared married for one year
They have been one of the most loved, cheered for couples in Bachelor history. The two documented their special day with Instagram stories and posts. In one story they drove by the location where they were married, reminiscing about that magical day. And, many of their closest friends also shared social media posts honoring their special day.
Ashley went to Instagram to share moving photos of her and Jared from their wedding. Of course, the first one shows Ashley crying. She said, “I’ve never cried less than I have this year!! Before Jared, at the end of every day, I’d think, “I’m one day closer to being with my person.” Now every night I think another precious day has gone by with my love. I don’t think personally life can get any better than it is now for us and I’m grateful for it every day.”
Jared responded, “Love you.”
Jared shares heartfelt message to his wife
He also went to Instagram to share a gorgeous wedding video and message to his bride of one year. Jared said, “One year ago today. Happy one year anniversary my love. You are undoubtedly the best thing to ever happen to me. I am forever grateful you are the person I get to share my life with.”
Ashley replied saying, “This video will never get old.”

Tons of other friends and alums shared well wishes on their special day. Nick Viall shared a photo of himself in his tux. He said, “Celebrating 1 year of me in this tux. Ashley and Jared also have their 1st anniversary today.”
Elan Gale also shared a photo and had plenty to say. He officiated their wedding and Ashley and Jared think highly of him. He talked about their wedding day then concluded saying, “Love is weird and hard and always worth it. And if that isn’t the lesson of the life of Ashley I and Jared H, I don’t know what is.”
Ashley and Jared both expressed their love and appreciation for Elan.

Happy 1 Year Anniversary! I figured since we didn’t attend your wedding, the least I could do is post an anniversary picture for you (plus I needed some IG content)… but seriously you guys are the best and can’t believe it’s been a year already. So excited to see what comes next for you!
Tanner Tolbert also shared a pretty awesome post to the happy couple. He shared a photo from their wedding in which he and Jade Roper were on screen. They were unable to attend due to having a baby. So, Tanner said, “Happy 1 Year Anniversary! I figured since we didn’t attend your wedding, the least I could do is post an anniversary picture for you (plus I needed some IG content)… but seriously you guys are the best and can’t believe it’s been a year already. So excited to see what comes next for you!”
Jared responded saying, “You guys will just have to be there the next time we get married. Oh wait…” Tanner responded jokingly again saying, “we will probably be having another kid then too… sorry in advance.”
Other alums who wished them well are Evan Bass, Olivia Caridi and Becca Tilley.
