The Bachelor alum Colton Underwood has married political strategist Jordan C. Brown in a romantic ceremony in California.

Colton, 31, tied the knot with Jordan, 38, in front of 200 guests at the Carneros Resort and Spa in Napa Valley on Saturday, May 13, People reported.


"I've never been more sure about something," the Season 23 The Bachelor star told People.

"[Jordan] has the biggest heart and he's such a good friend to all of the people in his life. He goes out of his way to take care of his friends and his family. That speaks volumes. It was one of the first things that I noticed about him."

Colton and Jordan exchanged vows and said, "I do," in a three-day wedding celebration that included a family dinner and welcome party on Friday night as well as a disco-themed pool party ahead of the ceremony on Saturday.

"It's going to be a fun wedding," Colton teased before his nuptials, adding, "I'll say that!"

Both men wore Tom Ford suits for their big day, with Colton wearing forest green and Jordan sporting blue.

The couple chose an outdoor wedding so they would be surrounded by trees and sunshine, which was "really important" to them both, according to Jordan.

When guests entered for the ceremony, they gazed at a big photo display designed by the couple.

"One thing that's really important to both of us is that we've created this, we're calling it 'our loving walk,'" Colton explained.

"It's inspired from a coffee table book that I was gifted after I came out called Loving and it's images of men in love throughout history. We blew them up and put them on canvases and set them around the resort. Next to them will be love letters from queer people in the 18th and 19th century that were forbidden or they had to send in secret."

Jordan also thought the "tribute" to same-sex couples before them -- who were in love and "paved the way" for others to get married -- was "really cool" to add to their wedding.

Colton and Jordan walked down the aisle hand-in-hand and said they broke away from some "traditional norms" for their wedding.

"And for the entire weekend, we recognize that a lot of people attending, both of our families and some of our friends, this will be their first queer wedding. We really want to make it special," Colton said.


Following the ceremony, Colton and Jordan planned a performance by Stanford University's Artistic Swimmers to "keep the energy going," according to Jordan.

"I like to host and bring people together. It's our wedding, but it's also a three-day party that we are throwing for our nearest and dearest," Jordan said.

At the reception, guests dined on steak, fish, pasta, salad and vegetables, and tequila cocktails were served honoring the couple's two dogs, Scout and Zooka. For dessert, mini cakes, pies and chocolate chip cookies were served.

And Colton and Jordan swayed to "The Good Ones" by Gabby Barrett for their first dance as spouses.

"I love the family that we've created already," Colton gushed. "Having our two dogs and our home and this wedding, we've really created a life that feels so compatible and in sync."

Colton said he and Jordan are now looking forward to what comes next, and he wrote Monday on Instagram how a "wild few years" led to "the most perfect weekend" with Jordan and their family and friends. He also thanked everyone for all "the love and support."

Colton revealed in January that he and his fiance would be getting married soon.

"I have good news," Colton wrote on Instagram. "The next wedding we attend will be our own."

Colton announced his engagement to Jordan in February 2022 after the pair had been dating for less than one year.

Colton took to Instagram at the time and teased the big announcement by posting a photo with Jordan and writing, "Life is going to be fun with you."

Jordan also posted a picture of Colton popping a champagne bottle and wrote, "The only time in my life I'm ok with wasting a bottle of champagne. I love you babe."

Colton, who starred on The Bachelor's 23rd season and publicly declared he's gay on Good Morning America in April 2021, told People after accepting Jordan's marriage proposal that he was "extremely happy!"

Colton added, "2021 was the most transformative year of my life. Starting 2022 off with my best friend, teammate and now fiance is something I never thought was going to be possible."

Colton revealed that his engagement took place in Big Sur, CA, following his big and "unforgettable" 30th birthday celebration in late January 2022 with his loved ones.

"After my birthday, Jordan and I went to Big Sur for a weekend getaway to decompress and relax in nature," Colton shared. "I couldn't have pictured a more beautiful place to celebrate an amazing milestone in my life and relationship."


Colton and Jordan went Instagram official in early December 2021.

One day after Colton's docu-reality series Coming Out Colton premiered December 3, 2021 on Netflix, Colton posted photos of the pair on his Instagram Story and wrote to Jordan, "Happy birthday to my dog-loving, family man, corn-fed love."

"I wasn't really pursuing dating at first. But since then I found somebody and I am very much in love," Colton told People at the time.

Colton called Jordan a "great support" and added, "I'm the luckiest person to have him in my life." They had already met each other's family at that point.

Within a month of making their relationship public, Colton and Jordan purchased a $3 million home together in Sherman Oaks, CA.

"I was struggling with my sexuality but I had such a level of fear over being gay," Colton previously shared.

"Now that I've been out to myself for a year, it's the healthiest and happiest I've ever felt. And there is nothing I would ever want to be but gay."

Colton, however, decided against featuring Jordan in his Netflix docu-reality series.

"I have been through that. I have done that. Even going into the show, that was one of the conversations with the production company," Colton explained to Us Weekly in late 2021.

"I'm not in a space right now to really, like, put myself out there like that," he said. "I had a lot of self-discovery to do."

Colton assured Us, however, that he was "not hiding" his relationship and just wanted some privacy for the start of his first gay romance.

Before officially posting photos with one another, Colton made his attraction to Jordan known by commenting fire and heart emojis on a picture of Jordan wearing a suit to the Baby 2 Baby gala in November 2021.

Colton and Jordan were first linked in September 2021, when they were photographed kissing and flirting during a romantic getaway to a Four Seasons resort in Maui, HI.

According to an eyewitness, the Season 23 The Bachelor star was "making out and snuggling" with Jordan by the hotel pool, Us reported at the time.

"They were tanning and swimming. They were very out in the open and not hiding their PDA!" the eyewitness added.

Colton publicly declared he's gay following his devastating breakup from The Bachelor 23 winner Cassie Randolph in May 2020 after 18 months of dating.

The former pro football player shared on GMA in April 2021 how he had never experienced an "emotional connection" with a person of the same sex before.

"I'm looking for someone who can push me and challenge me in all the right ways. I still have a long ways to go. I'm still learning," Colton said at the time.

Cassie said she had no idea Colton was gay during the course of their relationship and was also never given a heads-up that he'd be coming out as gay on national television.

What started out as an amicable split turned nasty in June 2020 when Colton got angry about Cassie appearing on a Bachelor special after they had agreed to handle their breakup privately. Cassie thought she respected Colton's wishes and proceeded to accuse her ex of trying to "monetize" their breakup by writing about it in his The First Time memoir.

Colton allegedly put a tracking device on Cassie's car, sent her "unsettling" text messages, and would stand outside her apartment or her parents' house very late at night, which resulted in a restraining order against Colton that was ultimately dropped once a private agreement was reached in November 2020.

The Bachelor is now in Colton and Cassie's rearview mirror. She's been happily dating a family friend, musician Brighton Reinhardt, since May 2021.

The former football player told GMA in 2021 that he realized he was different at the age of six and came to the conclusion he's gay when he was a freshman in high school.

Colton said he hated himself "for a long time" and was "a miserable person living as a shell of a human being" while pretending to be straight for well over a decade.

In addition to having starred on The Bachelor, Colton also appeared on The Bachelorette 14 starring Becca Kufrin and Bachelor in Paradise 5 when he dated Tia Booth.

Colton has said in the press he thought being the Bachelor and dating Cassie could make him straight but he was ultimately lying to himself and he feels badly for having hurt so many women on his season.
