Ali Fedotowsky brought her journey full circle on the season finale of The Bachelorette. So who got her final rose? Read on to find out.
The finale of The Bachelorette was romantic and whimsical in every sense, much like Ali Fedotowsky. The Bachelorette opened with Fedotowsky's journey to meeting her final suitors, Roberto Martinez and Chris Lambton.
On one hand, going into the finale Roberto Martinez was Ali Fedotowsky's tall, dark, and handsome prince, while Chris Lambton's love snuck up on her.

The Bachelorette: Roberto meets Ali's family
When Roberto Martinez arrived to meet Ali Fedotowsky's family, the chemistry between the two was electric. They couldn't keep their hands off each other.
From the get go, the family was dazzled by the hunky contestant's charm and passion for their beloved Ali. Mother Fedotowsky got some alone time with her daughter's possible fiance and couldn't express how happy she was with his and Ali's courtship.
She likened Martinez to "what Ali needed."
When asking papa Fedotowsky for approval of his daughter's hand in marriage, Martinez assured him he loved Ali from first sight. There couldn't have been a prouder dad and it was clear Roberto Martinez was in the hearts of Ali Fedotowsky's family.
The meeting ended on a flavorful note with salsa lessons for everyone courtesy of Roberto Martinez.
The Bachelorette: Chris meets Ali's family
Chris Lambton has allowed his love for Ali Fedotowsky to blossom like a slow flower, but his ability to click with her family was much quicker.
Being from Massachusetts, as is the Fedotowsky family, immediately gave Chris major points. The family felt affection for Lambton's family values and love for his late mother.
It was clear the bond Ali's family felt for Chris was from a homegrown place. Ali felt the family saw him as one of them. But was it enough?
Ali Fedotowsky's father also gave his blessing for a union between Ali and Chris.
With the family clearly falling head over heels for both men, finding Roberto's passion refreshing and Chris's values intriguing, it wasn't going to be easy for Ali.
The Bachelorette: Ali's last dates with Roberto and Chris
Ali Fedotowsky met with Roberto for one last chance to clear her mind and figure out if he was right for her. The two enjoyed jet skiing and a beautiful beach-side picnic. The pair make a steamy couple and it's hard to deny they have something together. The two ended their magical meal with a fairy tale kiss in the rain.
Roberto carried the romance over into an evening date where he presented Ali with a picture frame containing a snapshot of the heart shaped lagoon the couple had visited in Iceland!
Chris Lambton got his turn to make a last impression on Ali Fedotowsky, but it was Ali who surprised Lambton. At the beginning of the date she informed Lambton her choice was already made and let him in on the secret. Out of respect for their time together, Ali let him down gently and said goodbye to Chris Lambton forever. Chris wished Ali nothing but the best and thanked her for being kind enough to tell him before the rose ceremony.
