It was a Bachelor In Paradise wedding for Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd, who met and got engaged on last season of the popular ABC reality show. According to Mail Online, the couple tied the knot in a “secret ceremony” that was officiated by none other than Bachelor/ette host Chris Harrison, and filmed by ABC. The wedding footage aired during Sunday night’s BIP premiere.
“You both came on the Bachelor and Bachelorette seeking the most important thing in the world — love. Neither of you found it, but you were each given a second chance and you both came to paradise to seek out love again and there you found it. There were ups and downs, trials and tribulations and you’ve come through to this day, back in Mexico where it all began,” Chris Harrison said during the ceremony.
The Bachelor In Paradise wedding was attended by BIP Season 2 contestants, none of whom had any idea that they’d be attending Marcus and Lacy’s nuptials after arriving in Paradise. The couple shared some intimate moments with their family and their friends — old and new — and there wasn’t a dry eye on the beach when they read their vows to one another.
“I still don’t feel I deserve you. You show me every day your strength and courage, and for that and many other reasons you are my greatest love,” Marcus told his bride.
“The love that we share can’t possibly be defined by the words that we say today. You’re so kind, caring and patient and as we embark on the sacred covenant I want you to know I’ll live every day to love you more than the one before,” Lacy told her groom.
According to People Magazine, the couple’s wedding took place on June 4. Lacy’s dress was designed by Mac Duggal, was low cut in the front, and covered in lace. Her father walked her down the aisle at the Playa Escondida in Sayulita, Mexico, as loved ones looked on.

The Bachelor In Paradise wedding was followed by a romantic honeymoon in Punta Mita, Mexico, likely a “gift” from ABC (as was the engagement ring, and the wedding itself). Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul are already talking about starting a family.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the couple had also been planning to throw a huge party back in California (where they share a home) at some point so that they could celebrate their marriage with family and friends who couldn’t make it to Mexico.
Do you think Marcus and Lacy will last?
