The Bachelorette'sGarrett Yrigoyen has talked about his ex-wife Kayla Cunningham repeatedly on the show -- sparking interest in their relationship and what happened between them. And now, the former couple's wedding video has surfaced online.
Garrett, a 29-year-old medical sales representative from Reno, NV, is currently a frontrunner for Becca Kufrin's heart on The Bachelorette's fourteenth season.
If Garrett ends up engaged to Becca; however, it obviously won't be his first time putting a ring on a woman's finger.
Garrett got engaged to Kayla in 2014 and they wed about a year and a half later on September 19, 2015.
In the five-minute wedding highlights video released by Jensen Films, an award-winning wedding cinematography company based in Sacramento, Garrett and Kayla are shown getting married at the beautiful Newcastle Wedding Gardens in Placer County, CA and then enjoying their reception afterwards.
Garrett and Kayla exchanged romantic and personal vows during the ceremony, with Garrett getting choked up and nearly crying the entire time.
"I hope you realize I love you with every ounce of my being and your importance to me and how lucky I am to have you in my life," Garrett told Kayla, adding there's no one else with whom he'd want to watch reality shows like Total Divas and Naked and Afraid.
However, the bachelor told Becca on a recent episode of The Bachelorette that he filed for divorce after only two months of marriage. And according to Nevada court documents, the divorce was finalized a few months later.
"What she was doing, which I didn't realize, was driving a wedge between me and my family and a lot of my close friends."
Becca then asked Garrett if he had noticed such behavior early on, given the couple was together for three years before tying the knot.
"I did notice it. There were some red flags like that, but I was so in love and it was so hard to let go. I wanted to fight and try to make it work out," Garrett said. "I was embarrassed because nobody in my entire bloodline had been divorced before."
Becca sensed "loyalty and commitment" from Garrett, and she said that's exactly what she wants in a partner. However, she worried Garrett wouldn't be ready to get married again so soon.
"I've had two years to heal and go through the process and everything. I'm looking for a partner in life, just like you said -- 50/50. We share the same values... And I'm here to build a true, strong connection," Garrett insisted to Becca, adding that he wouldn't stay on the show unless he felt she was the right person for him.
