“Bachelorette” Ashley Hebert ties the knot in California

Though fans of the reality TV show “The Bachelorette” will have to wait until Dec. 16 to see the televised version of it, it’s official: season seven “Bachelorette” and Madawaska native Ashley Hebert has married her fiance, J.P. Rosenbaum. The couple were wed in a ceremony in Pasadena, CA, on Saturday.

Hebert is one of a select few “Bachelorettes” and “Bachelors” to actually take the plunge; most of the couples created from the ABC reality shows have not weathered the storm.┬áHebert, a dentist, first vied for Brad Womack’s heart on “The Bachelor.” She then met Rosenbaum, a 35-year-old construction manager, on the seventh season of “The Bachelorette.” They got engaged┬áduring the show’s finale.

Hebert wore a long, strapless wedding dress, and walked down the aisle to a piano rendition of “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.” Hebert’s maid of honor was her sister, Chrystie Corns, and a bridesmaid was fellow “Bachelor” contestant Ashley Spivey. Groomsmen were Rosenbaum’s brother and Ashley’s brother. The wedding will be televised as a two-hour special set for Monday, Dec. 16 on ABC.
