Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright went looking for love on The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, respectively, only to find it years later with each other.

The couple got married Saturday!

Peyton and Chris, who got engaged last year, tied the knot at Wild Dunes Resort in Charleston, S.C. The bride wore a gown by Melissa Sweet.

Their I-dos provide a happy ending for a courtship that started when a mutual Bachelor friend introduced the pair, who came up short on reality TV.

Not that the show didn't provide them other opportunities - in love and work.

The landscaper from Massachusetts and his Dallas-born bride will star in Going Yard, premiering May 12 on HGTV. Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright be traveling the U.S. designing and decorating outdoor living spaces.

Among Lambton's fellow Bachelorette alums invited to the nuptials were Craig Robinson, Tyler Vermette and even Roberto Martinez, whom Ali Fedotowsky got engaged to on the finale of her season, spurning Chris.

Let bygones be bygones, right? Congratulations, Chris and Peyton!

Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor quasi-fame are engaged, according to reports. They're engaged to each other!

The runner-up on Ali Fedotowsky's season of The Bachelorette began dating the contestant from Andy Baldwin's Bachelor season last summer.

Peyton Wright, who met Chris at a Bachelor franchise reunion event (a.k.a. hookup fest), also appeared on season one of Bachelor Pad.

Lambton was offered the opportunity to appear as The Bachelor after he lost out to Roberto Martinez for Ali's heart, but he turned down the offer.

ABC decided to give Brad Womack another chance at love. Oye.

We all know how that turned out. Anyway, Ashley Hebert is The Bachelorette now, and Chris Lambton "found the love of his life" in Peyton Wright.

“We are so incredibly happy," he says. "She was worth the wait.”

Great news from a great guy. Congratulations to the couple!

The Bachelorette runner-up Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright, a former contestant on The Bachelor herself, have found love on the reality shows after all.

Chris' followers on Twitter likely put together that he and Peyton, who vied for the love of Andy Baldwin a few seasons ago, were an item. Now it's official.

Tugging Away

"Yes, I have," he told People at a Bachelor reunion party in New York, when asked if he found love. "We met at another Bachelor function," Wright adds.

Together since August, the couple hit it off right away.

"It's one of those things where I've had a ton of serious relationships and I met this kid and he was genuine, outgoing and hilarious. We just click," she said.

At the cast reunion event, which reports say doubled as a Bachelor Pad 2 casting session, Chris Lambton had no regrets about turning down The Bachelor.

"It's just not me," he said. "Sitting at home and watching the season with my family weirded me out. I wanted to find love on my own, not in that situation."

Good answer, especially now that's found Peyton. She's a pretty great catch, we admit ... although Chantal O'Brien and Emily Maynard are too. Just saying.

Following Monday's season finale of Bachelor Pad, won by Dave Good and Natalie Getz, host-pimp Chris Harrison dished on the next star of The Bachelor. He is ...

TBA!

"We are starting production soon, and we're going to need somebody," Chris said, noting that the long-running show is still looking for Jake Pavelka's successor.

Chris Lambton fell for Ali. Will others have a chance to fall for him?

"If you know any good bachelors out there, let me know," Harrison added, while saying he remains open to bringing back an unnamed former Bachelorette star.

Reading between the lines, it's clear ABC wants Chris Lambton, who Ali Fedotowsky rejected on The Bachelorette finale and got engaged to Roberto Martinez.

It's also becoming clear that Chris will likely pass if he hasn't already.

Should Chris Lambton be The Bachelor? To 87 percent of fans (according to THG's survey) who watched him on The Bachelorette, there's no question.

The Cape Codder won the hearts of millions falling just short in pursuit of Ali Fedotowsky. If ever there were a lock for the next Bachelor, it'd be Chris.

If he wants it, that is. Reportedly he does not.

"All of our best Bachelors have been hesitant at first," says a source cited by E! Online, who says Chris told the producers of the ABC show he'll pass.

Rather than a starring role with the tables turned, Chris Lambton wants to resume "normal life." A reality star wanting to avoid the spotlight? Novel.

It's not over yet, though: The Bachelor powers that be are still wooing Chris Lambton, in hopes of changing his mind and guaranteeing record ratings for next season.

"The producers really want Chris to be the guy," says a source with knowledge of the situation. "They're hoping to convince him. This definitely isn't dead yet."

And an ABC insider adds that it's "too soon" to determine who will, or won't, be the next Bachelor, or who would star instead of Chris if he sticks to his guns.

It's worth noting that Ali Fedotowsky bailed on The Bachelor to return to her actual life, only to pull a 180 and take The Bachelorette gig shortly thereafter.

Her exit from Jake Pavelka's season reeked of a stunt, though. Chris L. genuinely seems like the type who might actually turn down such an opportunity.

What do you think? Should Chris Lambton be The Bachelor?

Cape Cod Chris. The nice, handsome 33-year-old who moved home from NYC to Dennis, Mass., to be with his ailing mother won over millions on The Bachelorette.

Unfortunately, someone else won Ali Fedotowsky over more.

Suffice it to say, while we have nothing against Ali's fiance, Chris Lambton would have been a good choice too, and a graceful exit Monday only boosted his stock.

With the possible exception of Jason Mesnick, there's never been a more popular runner-up. We guarantee a starring role on The Bachelor is his if he so chooses.

We can't see the show selecting Jake Pavelka as its star had there been interest from Kiptyn Locke ... or Reid Rosenthal. But this season, it's Chris and only Chris.

Chris and Ali hit it off in Lisbon, Portugal.

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez seem to have found genuine love and happiness on the ABC franchise. Should Chris take a shot at doing the same? Vote:
