'The Bachelorette' alum Ames Brown marries Allison Palm in untraditional New York wedding

Former The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad suitor Ames Brown is now a married man.

Brown, who competed on Ashley Hebert's season of The Bachelorette and then appeared on Season 2 of Bachelor Pad, exchanged vows with his longtime girlfriend Allison Palm on July 30 in New York, The New York Times reported

Brown reportedly tied the knot with Palm at the Church of the Heavenly Rest in an "old-fashioned morning" wedding at 10AM.

Brown, 36, wore gray slacks and a double-breasted navy blazer, while Palm, 26, chose an untraditional Dolce & Gabbana three-quarter-length flowery dress.

The reception, for which the couple atypically changed into comfortable hiking outfits and boots, followed at the James Burden Mansion nearby for their 211 guests, according to The Times.

Palm and Brown -- a Yale graduate who has two Master's Degrees from Columbia and currently serves as the chief investment officer at Capital Counsel in Manhattan -- then headed to the airport and took off to do a month of trekking in Nepal for their honeymoon.

After appearing on only a few episodes of The Bachelorette's seventh season in 2011 and then failing to find love with Jackie Gordon on Bachelor Pad, Brown embarked on a three-week sailing expedition in Mexico as an escape from all the media hype and fan scrutiny.

Brown met Palm on that trip after she had just graduated from Brown University and was looking to do something out of her comfort zone. She at first thought Brown was overly formal, but after spending more time with him, she learned he was funny and also a great storyteller.

"We were definitely the two most nerdy people on the trip," Brown told The Times. "She may even take the cake in this regard."

After the trip, the pair remained in touch but didn't apply pressure to labels or commitment. She reportedly returned home to Fayetteville, NY, while Brown went back to Brooklyn.

However, over the next several years, they enjoyed many more adventures together. And then in Fall 2014, Palm began a graduate program at Columbia, so she moved into Brown's New York apartment.

Brown ultimately proposed on Christmas morning 2015 at a Rite Aid pharmacy in Syracuse, NY. Palm's father had tipped Brown off that Palm would be picking up a prescription, so he stood by the counter, waited for her and completely surprised her.

"The first thing I said was, 'What are you doing here?'" Palm revealed to the newspaper. "He said, 'I'm here to propose to you.'"

Brown's odd proposal apparently reflects the couple's philosophy about traveling, in that they find beauty in unexpected places.

"Really special things don't have to happen on top of mountains. They can happen in a pharmacy," Palm explained.
