Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum’s wedding was picture perfect.
Hebert, 28, and Rosenbaum, 35, say that even though their wedding was filmed for TV (it will air Dec. 16 as a two-hour special on ABC) their love is as genuine as it comes.
“The ceremony was simple, sweet and personal,” Hebert tells PEOPLE in its new issue, on newsstands Friday. Adds Rosenbaum, “We didn’t want it to be a circus.”
On the day they exchanged vows, Hebert reiterated their commitment to keeping their relationship focused on the important things in life.
“Today is all about our friends and family,” Hebert said. “It’s about standing with J.P., looking around at all the people we love in the same room there to celebrate our love.”
The wedding was attended by family, friends and fellow Bachelor and Bachelorette alumni, including Ali Fedotowsky, Emily Maynard, Jason and Molly Mesnick and Ryan and Trista Sutter. The franchise’s on-air host, Chris Harrison, officiated the ceremony.
