After trying to find love on The Bachelor back in 2006, Erica Rose has finally found the man she was looking for.  

Another Bachelor star has found love outside of the ABC reality show. Erica Rose, a contestant on season 9, married the love of her life, Charles Sanders, in a beautiful ceremony in Houston, Texas. They had a traditional Jewish wedding that took place on Sunday at Temple Emanu El.  

The lovebirds tied the knot with many familiar faces from Bachelor Nation watching them say their I do’s. According to E! News, Prince Lorenzo Borghese was one of them who was there to help her celebrate her big day. Erica was just one of the woman who tried to win his heart 11 years ago, but she was sent home early on. Others who were in attendance included Vienna Girardi, Melissa Schreiber, Sadie Murray, AshLee Frazier Williams, and Renee Simlak. 

Wedding details

Erica Rose had her mermaid-style wedding gown designed by Ventura Bridal. She completed her wedding attire with a tiara that had a short veil attached to it. The blushing bride carried a gorgeous bouquet of red and pink flowers as well. She had her fairytale wedding to her prince charming after all. 

On her Instagram account, Erica posted a special snapshot of her and her dad right before he gave his daughter away to her new husband. She said that this was the day that he has been waiting for his whole life. E! News also mentioned that Erica’s one-year-old daughter Holland was in her arms as she walked down the aisle to marry Charles Sanders under the traditional Chuppah. 

Happily ever after

Little Holland played a big part in the engagement as well. Charles got down on one knee in September during the toddler’s first birthday party at the Houston Zoo to propose to The Bachelor star. The two have known each other since high school and finally reconnected years later. Erica was previously engaged to Holland’s father, Galen Gentry, but they later broke it off. 

She didn’t get the final rose from Lorenzo, but there were plenty of roses to be found on her special day. A wall of roses was designed especially for the couple with the name, ‘Cherica’ spelled out. The Bachelor alums all posed for a photo in front of it. 

Congratulations to Erica Rose and Charles Sanders as they begin their new life togther!
