Looks like the fourth time is the charm for Emily Maynard.
The North Carolina single mom and former Bachelor and Bachelorette star wed Tyler Johnson in a surprise ceremony Saturday night in Sharon, S.C.
"God brought us together. He's given me such peace about everything. I'm so grateful I met him," says the former Emily Maynard, now Emily Johnson.
The duo, who got engaged in January, invited 200 family and friends to Tyler's family farm for an engagement party ... and their secret wedding.
Her daughter Ricki, 8, was her mom's maid of honor.
"It's just as much her day as it is mine because it's a big change for her," the bride says of Ricki, whose father is Emily's late fiance Ricky Hendrick.
"She just adores Tyler and he is so good with her. He loves her as if she was his own daughter. It's been so great to see their relationship grow."
Emily found many fans on ABC. But not The One.
"For so long I felt so embarrassed and ashamed about that TV stuff," says the new Mrs. Johnson, but "Tyler truly lives out God's grace every day."
"The grace that my faith has given me to wipe that all away and not find worth in that and find it through God, Tyler has been a great example of that for me."
