Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon—otherwise known as Ashley I. and Jared from the Bachelor franchise—got married in Rhode Island over the weekend. Plenty of members of Bachelor Nation were in attendance, including Kaitlyn Bristowe, Jason Tartick, Ben Higgins, and Nick Viall, People reports. Makes sense: The couple met, and ultimately got engaged (with a Neil Lane ring, of course), on Bachelor in Paradise.

People got the exclusive on everything relating to the latest Bachelor nuptials, from the rehearsal dinner to Iaconetti’s two wedding dresses: an Ines de Santo ballgown for the ceremony, and an Alyne by Rita Vinieris number for the reception. Here’s what we know about her bridal style.

Iaconetti’s inspiration was Kim Kardashian’s April 2014 Vogue cover. Ahead of her marriage to Kanye West, Kim Kardashian appeared on the cover of American Vogue—her first time fronting the glossy—in a strapless Lanvin by Alber Elbaz gown with a sweetheart neckline.That dress was top of mind for Iaconetti as she embarked on her bridal shopping journey, according to People. Ultimately, the look wasn’t for her, but her Ines di Santo dress still bore some similarity to the one on Kardashian’s Vogue cover, with its neckline and voluminous princess skirt.

Her first wedding dress took nearly 100 hours to make. Iaconetti customized Ines di Santo’s classic Primrose gown, from its Spring 2016 collection, to fit her “extremely classic, princess” vision. According to the brand, it’s made from over 30 yards of Alençon and Chantilly lace and took nearly 100 hours of hand-sewing and collaging to get the look. Iaconetti told People of the result: “It’s the kind of dress that you wear and you are so thankful you chose that one, because you’re going to look back on it 50 years later and be happy you went with that style. I will never regret it and I think I’ll always think it’s the prettiest dress that I’ve ever seen. It’s timeless, classic elegance.”
