Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman tied the knot with her fiancé Blaine Hart on Wednesday. The wedding comes a year after he popped the question.
Following her intimate wedding, which was held in Sorrento, Italy, she told People, “Getting to spend my life with Blaine and being in love with him as much as I am is something that’s like a dream come true to me.”
The 36-year-old reality TV star spoke of her “dreamy” three-day wedding ceremony which took place on “the most beautiful day” despite a “weather scare earlier in the week.”
“It was all so beautiful. We had a weather scare earlier in the week, and we didn’t know if the ceremony we always wanted was gonna happen, and then it turned out to be the most beautiful day. I couldn’t have dreamt of a more perfect day. Being able walk around and call Blaine my husband is already so much fun!” she added.
The bride and groom said their “I do’s” in front of 75 friends and family members at the Conca del Sogno Beach Club.
Speaking of her journey to select her wedding dress, she revealed, “I'm getting married, obviously, for love and for Blaine, but I'm having a wedding for the dresses. I just could not be stopped. My stylist, Liza Lieberman, and I, just every time we see a new dress we're like, 'Can we fit this in the timeframe?' So we have a total of four dresses over two days.”
The newlyweds first met more than a decade ago. However, they only began their romantic relationship in the summer of 2021.
Speaking of meeting for the first time, Dorfman explained, “It's kind of a crazy story. We actually met at a party when we were both in college. Blaine was playing baseball at Furman University and one of my friends was his teammate. We met and then I never heard from him again until 15 years later in Italy.”
She went on to explain why they chose Italy as their wedding destination, “Blaine started DMing me and asked if I wanted to go for drinks. I told him, 'I'm in Italy, so no.' And he was like, 'Well obviously. I saw your Instagram story, I'm here too and I want to take you out for drinks.'"
“I’m so excited for all the adventures we have to look forward to, everything with Andi is just so much fun and more special,” Hart added.
