According to UsWeekly, DeAnna, 29, wed Stephen on Saturday in the Serenbe community of Palmetto, GA.
“We’re so ecstatic to be husband and wife and we’re thrilled to be sharing this day with all our family and friends,” the couple told UsWeekly.
Stephen, a high school teacher, proposed to DeAnna back in May 2010 with a 2.12-carat white-gold ring.
DeAnna starred on the Bachelorette season 4 back in 2008. She and Stephen met in 2009 months after DeAnna called off her engagement to her then fiance/winner of her Bachelorette season Jesse Csincsak. Congrats to the happy couple!
For those of you who have been waiting patiently for the wedding of former Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky and super-hot fiancé, Roberto Martinez you may be waiting a long time. A very long time.
A new report states the couple, who met on The Bachelorette, aren’t quite the lovebirds they pretend to be! The televised wedding between Ali and Roberto was planned for this summer, but Ali postponed the ceremony after a kickboxing injury left her on crutches; stating she didn’t want to “limp down the aisle.”
Ali’s injuries have since healed, but her relationship? Well, it seems pretty broken. “Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one,” a friend tells US Weekly, claiming Ali, 27, and Roberto, 28, “bring out the worst in each other.”
“They’re either extremely happy or they can’t stand each other,” the friend explains of their off-TV dynamic. Ali is “miserable in the relationship and he is too,” the friend continues.
As for what is causing the misery in their relationship, the source cites jealousy on Roberto’s end, “big-time fights” and long work hours as part of the reason the couple is so unhappy. The couple is still living together in San Diego, but have yet to announce a new date for their nuptials.
Well, I guess we’ll all have to hope that Ashley and JP at least make it. As of now they are supposedly walking down the aisle in a Made-For-TV wedding.

Are you surprised Ali and Roberto aren’t happy? Do you think they will work out their differences and tie the knot or not?
If you can believe this, it appears The Bachelorette has actually made another “til death do us part” match! Former Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert and fiancé, JP Rosenbaum are allegedly headed down the aisle for reals! I’m shocked!
A former Bachelor contestant (no word on who) told Life & Style: “Ashley and JP will get married on TV, it’s guaranteed.” The wedding is slated to take place next spring after Ben Flajnik’s season of The Bachelor concludes.
Ashley and JP are expected to wed on the west coast, likely in California, and ABC will cover the costs of the nuptials. “ABC is happy to pay for a wedding when it knows the couple are as happy and in love as Ashley and JP are,” the insider reveals. I hope her Extreme Couponing sister, Chrystie Corns is her MOH.
In other Bachelor news, Emily Maynard, former fiancé of eternal two-time loser, Bachelor Brad Womack has moved on with Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey!
“They were set up on a blind date,” a friend tells US Weekly of Emily, 25, and Jeremy, 31. “They’ve been out five times.”
As for how serious the couple is, the friend explains: “Emily thinks Jeremy is nice, but she’s just having fun!”

Do you believe Ashley and JP will make it down the aisle? Are you excited that Emily has moved on with a new and hopefully less annoying guy?
Bachelor insider Reality Steve broke the news on his blog, even stating Ben had began to film scenes for the new season.
Ben, who was the runner-up on Ashley Hebert‘s season of the Bachelorette, had been longed rumored to be in the running for the Bachelor alongside Ryan Park and Ames Brown. However following the finale episode, fans made it clear they wanted Ben to be the next Bachelor.
According to RS, the 28-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, Calif., was spotted filming some solo scenes in San Francisco on Aug. 22.
He will reportedly start filming his season (with his contestants) in mid-September with ABC likely to start airing it next January.
And speaking of Ashley, she is still going strong with her fiance J.P. Rosenbaumweeks after her season ended! That has to be equivalent to 3 years in Bachelor franchise years. In fact, Ashley was photographed moving into JP’s NYC apartment just days ago.
“@JP_Rosenbaum is going to kill me when he sees how much clothing I have!! #newyorkaptsneedmoreclosetspace.” tweeted Ashley. JP replied, “@ashhebert all I can say is thank god we r getting a bigger place!” Ashley also tweeted the photo below of the two out and about days ago. Perhaps these two might actually make it. Perhaps.
TELL US – HAPPY BEN IS THE NEW BACHELOR? DO YOU THINK ASHLEY AND JP WILL MAKE IT?
First Ben went out on a date with Jennifer Love Hewitt just days after the Bachelorette finale (she revealed her crush on him via twitter) and now a new report is stating Ben has become the front runner to be the nextBachelor! The others being considered for the gig include Ames Brown and Ryan Park.
“Everyone wants [Ben] to find the woman of his dreams,” an insider told UsWeekly. Ashley Hebert, 27, was reportedly the first woman Ben really opened up to since the death of his father in 2006. “He loved Ashley,” says a source.
Even show host Chris Harrison agrees than Ben deserves a chance to find Mrs. Right. “Our fans would love to see him as the Bachelor,” he said. “He’d be great.”
Even better for Ben, he has the fans of the show on his side! In a poll conducted by UsWeekly, 53 percent of voters wanted Ben to be the next Bachelor, while 27 percent voted for Ames and 20 percent for Ryan.
And in other Bachelor news we hope never comes to light, former/most hated Bachelor ever Jake Pavelkarevealed yesterday that he would be open to doing the Bachelor once again! Wowzers.
Jake, who’s first stint on the show ended in a pretty disastrous break up, revealed he wouldn’t mind becoming the Bachelor again though “but not right away.” The Famewhore Pilot, who is currently starring on two reality shows, adds that “the show works,” and even though his relationship with Vienna Girardi, 25, “didn’t work out,” that didn’t mean he didn’t find love.

First is a report by Star magazine which claims that Ashley slept with runner-up Ben Flajnik the night before JP’s proposal and that JP is now outraged about it.
“There have been major issues. JP can’t seem to get past Ashley’s night with Ben,” a source close to the show tellsStar magazine. “She definitely slept with him, and JP is spitting mad.”
Another source states JP and Ashley are having a hard time moving forward because Ben has been telling others about his night with Ashley. “Ben has some growing up to do,” Ashley’s pal says. “I think by talking about having sex with Ashley he is trying to appease his male ego. Ben really liked Ashley; he was completely crushed when she didn’t pick him.”
Even more shocking, former Bachelorettewinner Jesse Csincsak reveals that it’s quite common for the Bachelorette to have sex her final two contenders. “Everyone always sleeps with the finale two, and I’ve heard this season was no different,” Jesse notes. “The problem of hooking up with both finalists has been the downfall of many of the show’s engagements.” Wowzers.
Meanwhile, another report by Life & Style magazine states Ashley and JP have already experienced a break-up. The mag reports JP, who was having a hard time seeing Ashley with other guys on the show, actually ended things about a month ago.
“J.P. ended it,” a friend tells Life & Style. “It just wasn’t working out, and when JP is upset about something, he’ll just say, ‘Okay, it’s over.’” J.P. however coudn’t stay away from his fiance as “a few days later, they got back together,” says the friend.
“Since they patched things up and their engagement is out in the open now, they’ve got new hope and are looking forward to living together,” assures the source.

Following this week’s finale of the Bachelorette, many are now wondering what ever happened to that other Bachelorette, you know, Ali Fedotowsky from last season.
Well according to PEOPLE magazine, Ali has postponed her wedding to fiance Roberto Martinez. The reason? It all has to do with an injury.
“We had a date set, and that date has now passed,” Ali, 26, told PEOPLE on Tuesday. “The decision to postpone [the wedding] was very difficult. I definitely shed some tears.”
Ali, who fractured her femur back in June, underwent surgery in July and is still recovering. “I want to walk down the aisle,” she said, “I don’t want to limp down the aisle.”
Ali however assures us all is well between her and Roberto. In fact the couple spent their would be wedding day together. “It was one of the best days we’ve had, just me and him,” said Ali, adding that she feels no need to rush the nuptials.
“In my mind, Roberto is my husband,” she said. “We live together; we do everything together; we plan for the future together; we fight just like a good old married couple. The only thing that’s not saying “I’m married” is another ring on my finger and a piece of paper.”
Ali is however staying mum on whether or not a new wedding day has been set.

TELL US – THOUGHTS? DO YOU THINK ALI AND ROBERTO WILL TIE THE KNOT?
The couple appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! during which they dished on their future together as well as their wedding plans.
Though we just saw their engagement play out on Monday night, the proposal actually took place back in May. The two have had to see each other in secret in other to keep the show’s ending under wraps. Ashley, 27, and J.P., 34, revealed they had been having chaperoned dates in secret every two weeks since filming ended.
In fact J.P. reveals he became dependent on technology to keep in touch with his fiance. “We live on Skype,” he told Kimmel. “I don’t watch any TV any more. It’s work, gym, three hours of Skype, sleep.”
Ashley once again talked about her plans to move in with J.P., who is a construction manager in New York, after she finishes dental school in September.
But perhaps the biggest surprise is that the couple is already planning their wedding! “We really want to focus on our engagement, but I’m thinking fall of next year!” gushed Ashley. And when it comes to Ashley’s sister, Chrystie, who made it clear she wasn’t a fan of JP’s on the finale, J.P. reveals Chrystie feels very differently today. “She’s been nothing but sweet and supportive since we got back,” J.P. told Kimmel. “It’s as is if I didn’t even know who that person was back in Fiji.”
Meanwhile, below is a photo of Ashley’s Neil Lane engagement ring! The 3.5-carat, central cushion-cut sparkler accented with 162 small, hand-set diamonds around a platinum band is reportedly valued at around $60,000.
