Forget the roses: Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham just exchanged wedding rings!

The Bachelor and his bride got married Saturday at Haiku Mill in Maui, Hawaii, PEOPLE confirms. Chris Harrison officiated the nuptials.

Luyendyk, 37, and Burnham, 27, exchanged vows 10 months after getting engaged on The Bachelor‘s After the Final Rose special following the controversial finale, when he proposed to final pick Becca Kufrin.

“Love is not always perfect,” the former race-car driver told PEOPLE in March. “Everyone finds each other in a different way. It’s not always a fairy tale, but as long as Lauren and I have each other, we’re happy.”

“I had my eye on mine from the beginning,” said Burnham of her 4-carat eternity band, set with over 200 round and French diamonds. “I love diamonds, what girl doesn’t?”

And Luyendyk admitted that his ring, made of platinum and rose gold, has some Bachelor history. “It’s the same one that my buddy [former Bachelor] Sean Lowe has,” he said. “I don’t mind. It’s a good omen!”
