Holly Durst and Blake Julian shocked the cast of ABC's Bachelor Pad by getting together - and engaged - last season. But there love was undeniably real.

On Saturday, the Bachelor and Bachelorette cast members got married!

Durst and Julian tied the knot in front of 115 guests, including former reality TV co-stars Erica Rose, Ella Nolan, Justin "Rated R" Rego and West Lee.

We're guessing Michael Stagliano, who was actively trying to win Holly back on the show when she got engaged to Blake, was probably not on hand.

The newlyweds wore this to mark the occasion:

Just kidding. These are promotional pics from Bachelor Pad 2.

"I couldn't be happier," Durst said. "Blake is my best friend and now my husband. I have a beautiful future ahead of me ... I love him with all my heart!"

The Ohio-bred children's author said "I do" to Blake at The Cliffs country club in South Carolina, walking down the aisle in an Alfred Angelo wedding gown.

"I'm really excited and really happy about the rest of my life," the newlywed said prior to the big day. "I can't wait for that to begin. I'm not nervous at all."

Congratulations to the couple and good luck!

Talk about mixed emotions.

Minutes before triumphing on the Bachelor Pad season finale, Michael Stagliano learned ON TV that his ex-fiancee, Holly Durst, was now engaged to someone else.

In the audience.

Mike and Holly with their friend and former pimp. His name's Chris.

Yup, despite partnering with Michael on the show, Holly was involved with Blake Julian, who she dated (and apparently got engaged to) after filming ended.

That was news to Michael, who found out on the taping of the season finale. Fortunately, he and Holly won the votes of their peers and $125,000 a piece.

Not the worst silver lining in the world. Nevertheless ...

On the season finale of Bachelor Pad, old wounds were reopened, a romantic bombshell was dropped, and a STAGGERING prize of $250,000 was awarded.

There were tears shed. There were some extremely awkward moments.

By the end, two couples from The Bachelor and Bachelorette were left standing. Read about it all below in THG's official +/- Bachelor Pad finale recap:

Jake, Vienna and Kasey

"I'm trying to act strong, 'cause I don't want Michelle to worry, but I am literally pissing down my leg." - Graham on the set of Cirque du Soleil. Literally. Plus 5.

Kasey and Vienna, of course, guaranteed they'd win this task and earn a spot in the finals. And, of course, they failed to do so. And, of course, she wept. Minus 6.

Mike and Holly took home the #1 spot thanks in no small part to his performing arts / dance background, but hey, guy needed a bone thrown his way, so Plus 8.

The judges - Jason Mesnick, Ali Fedotowsky and Trista Sutter - eliminated Ella and Kirk. Boo, but seeing those three was kind of fun, so that's kind of a Wash.

Four couples remain on Bachelor Pad heading into tonight's finale.

Who will take home the $250,000 prize? That will hinge on who makes the final two and wins the votes of their peers (they stole this from Big Brother).

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl are by far the douchiest couple in the house, and possibly in all of civilization. But they've been in command throughout.

The budding romance between Michelle Money and Graham Bunn, not to mention their strategy and success in competitions, could propel those two.

Bachelor Pad 2 Cast

Previously engaged Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano seem like the long shots, given the instability of their relationship (i.e. she just got engaged to Blake Julian).

Ella Nolan and Kirk DeWindt are the only tandem without romantic undertones, but she's a single mom and he's a mold poisoning survivor, and both are kinda cute.

So ... yeah. That about sums up the field right here.

Somebody had better go check on Mike Stagliano right about now.

Holly Durst and Blake Julian, whose chemistry on Bachelor Pad was palpable but led to his elimination on this week's episode, have since gotten engaged!

He clearly had a thing for her, but wow. Anyone see that coming?

Monday on Bachelor Pad, Holly handed Blake a note at the rose ceremony – right as he was about to get the boot - saying that it wasn't the end for them.

That turned out to be rather telling.

The pair, both 28, flirted all season long, but their courtship was always complicated, given that Durst's former fiancé Stagliano was also on the program.

And wanted her back desperately.

Meanwhile, Blake (a castoff from Ashley Hebert's season of The Bachelorette) also got with psycho Melissa Schreiber and was wooed by nut job Erica Rose.

Freed from the confines of that wild and crazy mansion, however, Holly and Blake's love was allowed to shine. Congratulations to the engaged couple!

In a STUNNING twist that makes absolutely no difference except to Erica and Blake, Bachelor Pad made its pairings officially "couple" up on Monday night.

As a result, Blake found himself further ostracized from the house.

By the end, the two castoffs from The Bachelor and Bachelorette were fighting not to be castoffs again, while a new love connection began to blossom.

Read about it below in THG's official +/- Bachelor Pad recap:

Graham Bunn and Michelle Money

Blake, awkwardly, must pair with Erica because he has no choice. She feels he should express a little bit more excitement. "I'm a lot smarter than Holly is," Erica says. "And in my opinion I am a lot prettier." No and no. Minus 8.

Venerable BP host-pimp Chris Harrison told the partners to "get to know" each other before the competition. Advantage ... who the heck knows! Plus 3.

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, as always, are overconfident. And moronic. Minus 12.
