Former Bachelor and Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano, the twin brother of Bachelor Pad winner Michael Stagliano, are married!

The couple wed Saturday in her home state of Georgia.

DeAnna Pappas, 29, walked down the aisle in a strapless Disney Bridal wedding gown with a birdcage veil and cowboy boots. "They were giddy with excitement," an observer at the unforgettable affair said. "She looked incredibly happy."

Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst, his then-fiance and also a contestant on The Bachelor, originally set the couple up. Stephen proposed in August 2010.

Durst and Michael Stagliano went on to win Bachelor Pad this summer, but he was caught off guard by her engagement to cast member Blake Julian.

Pappas, who was rejected by Brad Womack the first time he starred on The Bachelor, became The Bachelorette and got engaged to Jesse Csincsak.

That did not last long. But this one's gonna be forever!

DeAnna Pappas didn't find love on The Bachelor. Or as the star of The Bachelorette. But the twin brother of a Bachelorette castoff appears to have done the trick.

Reports of DeAnna and Stephen Stagliano - brother of Michael Stagliano - getting engaged and planning a wedding last month were premature, but now it's legit.

According to an inside source, DeAnna and Stephen are hoping to star in a new reality show with Michael and Michael’s fiancée, fellow Bachelor alum Holly Durst.

“They’re pitching their show all around town,” the insider says of the Stagliano Bros. “They want a double wedding and are hoping that it all gets aired on TV.”

DeAnna was rejected by Brad Womack on The Bachelor season finale, then chose Jesse Csincsak on The Bachelorette, only to break up with him shortly after.

“I need someone who makes me laugh,” she said back then. “I realized the relationship was coming to an end when we stopped laughing with each other.”

Jesse also dated Holly Durst after breaking up with DeAnna. The whole Bachelor universe is so incestuous ... and this was long before Bachelor Pad existed.

In any case, congratulations to the happy couple(s)!

DeAnna Pappas, the former star of The Bachelorette, is not only dating Stephen Stagliano, the brother of a former contestant on the show, they are engaged.

Supposedly. And planning to wed. Like soon.

DeAnna and Stephen, whose brother Michael pined for Jillian Harris on her season of The Bachelorette, were fixed up by his twin and his girlfriend, Holly Durst.

Holly was let go by Matt Grant when she was a contestant on The Bachelor, and also dated Jesse Csincsak, who got engaged to DeAnna on her season finale.

We know, it's really confusing.

As for DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano's wedding, it's supposedly imminent, although specifics aren't exactly available, courtesy of anonymous sources.

Take it with a grain of salt is all we're saying.

Hopefully, hosting her Lifetime series Get Married, where she offers wedding advice and tips to brides-to-be, will help prepare DeAnna for her own big day.

Yes, DeAnna Pappas hosts a show about weddings, despite two failed attempts at marriage proposals on national TV ... is this a great country or what?!

The lovely D is currently back home in Georgia where plans for the quickie wedding "is all they're talking about." Congratulations if this is in any way true!

The Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak, her fiancé, are getting married next year — and in a twist only appropriate for their reality TV romance, former Bachelor star Andy Baldwin will perform the ceremony!

“Andy Baldwin is a certified minister,” an insider explains to celeb gossip tabloid InTouch Weekly, noting that the rose ceremony veterans met on MySpace (really) - then grew so close that Andy was asked to officiate at the wedding.

“I’m so happy for DeAnna and Jesse. I am really honored that they’ve asked me and I can’t wait to be a part of their big day,” Andy said.

No word on whether Matt Grant will serve as Best Man or Shayne Lamas, Chelsea Wanstrath and Tessa Horst will be DeAnna's bridesmaids.

Andy Baldwin was on The Bachelor a year before DeAnna Pappas lost as a contestant, being rejected by that jackass Brad Womack on the finale. The Georgia beauty got the last laugh when she went on to star as The Bachelorette.

DeAnna Pappas [on Trista Rehn]: She’s like the poster child for The Bachelorette. She gave me some pretty good advice: Follow my heart and be true to myself. I can only hope to have a successful relationship like she has.

I’m thankful that he didn’t propose to me. Everything happens for a reason and I’m where I am today because of all of that and I’m very happy for that.
