Getting married was apparently so nice, they decided to do it twice! Despite the fact that they only just got hitched in January, Bachelor stars Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham got married again — this time in Las Vegas. Luyendyk announced the couple’s second wedding on social media, sharing a sneak peek at the photos of the unmistakably Sin City–style nuptials.
As you may well remember, Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham originally got married in January, 10 months after she said yes and he put a ring on it during The Bachelor’s After the Final Rose special. The dreamy wedding took place at Haiku Mill in Maui, with none other than Bachelor master of ceremonies Chris Harrison officiating. For their second time tying the knot, the couple had a different special guest: their daughter, Alessi Ren, who Burnham was pregnant with at the time of their first ceremony.
“We got married on Saturday (again) in the back of a pink caddy in Vegas,” Luyendyk revealed via Instagram. “Our new friend and legend @mrjordan1911 officiated (Elvis sat this one out). Can’t wait to show you guys more, we’ll post on YouTube tomorrow. #thisishowwedoit #wedid it #again.” In the admittedly epic photos from their (second) big day, Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham pose on the pink Cadillac with their daughter.

Still wondering why they renewed their vows so close to their first wedding? Burnham offered a bit more backstory when she shared the photos. “We always joked about ditching our plans for the first wedding and eloping in Vegas so we thought, what the heck, why not have both? Best decision we ever made as this day will be a hilarious memory we will cherish forever,” she wrote.
And, hey, the couple has made it clear in the past that they don’t care what people think of them, as long as they have each other. After the controversial end to Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelor — in which he broke off his engagement to Becca Kufrin to beg Burnham for a second chance — Luyendyk Jr. said their relationship is stronger than ever.
“I know it’s easy to sit at home and judge, but no love story is perfect. I took that risk because I know she was worth it,” he said during the after-Bachelor special. “She’s sitting next to me, I have her heart, she has my heart, and that’s all that matters to me.”
