After marrying Oula Palve, Haley Ferguson is seeing the world through rose-colored glasses!
On June 11, the Bachelor Nation star, 29, and her Finnish hockey player fiancé, 30, were married in a gorgeous ceremony in her hometown of Las Vegas.
A source confirmed to E! News that the wedding took place at Resorts World Las Vegas.
Emily Ferguson, Haley’s twin sister, was her maid of honor and posted videos from the wedding reception to her Instagram Story.
According to Us Weekly, the bride donned a sleeveless, semi-sheer bridal gown with flowery lace appliqués, while the groom wore a black suit. The wedding and guests numbered around 75 people, including Bachelor Nation alumnae Amanda Stanton and Lauren Bushnell Lane.
The gang had gotten together for a rehearsal dinner the night before. Emily captioned an Instagram image, “Hey, Soul Sister.” It’s finally the day of your wedding. I’m in love with you. “
The dinner was held at the Italian restaurant Brezza. The bride-to-be wore a sheer couture dress with white rhinestones, and her fiance wore a polished red and black suit, which Haley filmed for her Instagram Story.
Emily, who is also engaged, shared on her Instagram Story the same day that being a maid of honor isn’t as easy as she anticipated it would be. She said in a video footage of herself munching chips, “Maid of Honor duties are hard labor.” “I can’t believe my sister is going to be the most gorgeous bride tomorrow.”
Emily and Haley had a shared bachelorette party at the Crockfords in Las Vegas in February in preparation for their forthcoming marriages.
“It was the epitome of a Vegas bachelorette celebration. We had a blast singing karaoke, and the food was incredible throughout the weekend. At the time, Emily told E! News in an exclusive interview. “It was a once-in-a-lifetime weekend for me.”
After making their relationship on Instagram public in January 2020, Oula proposed to Haley in May 2021 while they were inspecting a potential wedding venue, after they had previously discussed the possibility of getting married.
“I had no idea he’d propose this early, so he really caught me off guard when he did!”
At the time, Haley told E! News in an exclusive interview. “He also had a secret dinner planned for me with all of my close family and friends. That spot has a very important place in my heart now!
Haley and Emily were initially introduced to fans of The Bachelor when they competed for Ben Higgins’ heart in Season 20 of the show in 2016. After several appearances on Bachelor in Paradise and a 2017 Freeform special called The Twins: Happily Ever After?, the twins met their future husbands outside of the show.
In reality, it was Emily who “forced” Haley to reach out to her now-fiance by sneaking into his direct messages.
She told E! News, “I think Haley and Oula make a terrific fit because they balance each other out.” “Oula is a kind and sweet young lady. He always prioritizes Haley, and I know he takes extra care of her when I’m not around. I’m ecstatic for them, and I’m delighted my matching efforts paid off! “
Haley also mentioned that the ring Oula used to propose to her had a special value for her. “Oula also had ‘ikuisesti,’ which means forever in Finnish, etched on the inside of the band,” she continued. “It has a personal touch to it, which I like!”
