She captioned the clip, "oh heavenly day" for good reason:

In the Emily Maynard wedding video, created by Heart Stone Films, she can be seen in a pink-hued custom Modern Trousseau strapless wedding gown.

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here this evening to marry Tyler Johnson and Emily Maynard," the officiant says in the clip, as the camera pans to Ricki.

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."

Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard is speaking out about current leading lady Andi Dorfman and how Eric Hill left the ABC show this week.

Because Hill died weeks after he departed, his somewhat contentious final exchange with Andi - while far from bitter - took on a heightened meaning.

The Bachelorette spoilers prepared us for his departure, and we knew of his tragic death, but we weren't expecting the way he exited the show.

Saying he believed Andi wasn't being fully open with him and accusing her of wearing a poker face, she suggested he leave and Eric Hill obliged.

Andi then told the rest of the guys that they can follow him out the door right now if they think the same, insisting she was being nothing but real.

Host Chris Harrison defended them, saying that Eric was just being honest, and on a different day, a less exhausted Andi might not have been as upset.

Emily Maynard tells Parade that she feels similarly about the situation:

From a matter of months to more than a decade, ABC's The Bachelorette has produced more successful relationships than its male-driven counterpart.

What's the secret to the bachelorettes' success? Well, we have no idea. 

Maybe the women are just better at picking them. Maybe the men doling out roses are just a bunch of cads (except THE Bachelor, Sean Lowe, of course). 

Whatever the reason, we tune in season after season, hoping the men are there for the right reasons, so our beautiful bachelorettes can ride off into the happily ever after sunset. 

Which of the women found love on reality TV? Who said adios during the After the Final Rose special? Let's rank the 10 Bachelorette stars in order of whose relationship lasted longest:

Andi Dorfman
Andi Dorfman hasn't yet found love on The Bachelorette. Or has she?? The Bachelorette spoilers might clue you in.

Where will the current star, Andi Dorfman, fall after this season?

The Bachelorette spoilers might give you a clue, and you can always watch The Bachelorette online on TV Fanatic see her journey to finding Mr. Right.

It's been a busy and momentous few months for a handful of famous folks in Hollywood.

Following the news yesterday that Jenny McCarthy is engaged to Donnie Wahlberg, we count 16 pairings that involve at least one well-known celebrity and one exciting piece of great news:

They're engaged!

A few are also expecting, meaning even more happy tidings are to come before the year is over.

Relive the celebrities who have already said "I Will!" in 2014 here:

Dreams do come true. At least 10-20 percent of the time.

Fans know that a final rose does not guarantee a lifetime of happiness, but The Bachelor has produced some couples that have stood the test of time. At least lately.

And with Juan Pablo Galavis' season in full swing, ABC caught us up on some of its recent success stories as part of its "Juan-uary" series of Sunday specials.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are set to tie the knot next weekend. They were one of the duos featured on The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories last night.

The others:

Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum
Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum are married. He won her heart on The Bachelorette.

  • Trista Rehn married fireman Ryan Sutter in a ceremony that was televised in 2003. Still the gold standard for the show, over a decade later.
  • Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried. The most recent Bachelorette picked Chris at the end of Season 9 last year. They're still engaged.
  • Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum. After she chose J.P. on The Bachelorette Season 7 finale, Ashley married J.P. in December 2012.
  • Molly and Jason Mesnick. Jason was engaged to Melissa Rycroft, but dumped her for runner-up (and now-wife) Molly on the After the Final Rose special. Close enough.

Will Juan Pablo end up in the success or failure column? The Bachelor spoilers shed some light on that if you're interested ... but the odds are not good.

That's like five success stories in like 27 seasons. Just saying.

Emily Maynard and Tyler Johnson are dating, and you could say things are getting pretty serious between The Bachelorette and her new boyfriend.

After two public broken engagements, Emily and Tyler, who met at church, are "very serious," according to a source close to the single mother:

"He's met her daughter, Ricki, and they're already like a little family unit... They take each other to weddings and will be spending the holidays together."

As for whether she'll be headed to the altar with Tyler following her two broken reality TV engagements to Brad Womack and Jef Holm, respectively?

Not quite yet.

Emily Maynard's personal life has been plagued with drama for years now, so she wants to keep the new romance private, and slow it down, for some time.
