“We wanted our wedding atmosphere to be traditional in a sense, but also fun, fun and unique,” says JoJo. “We’ve been planning for a long time, so we wanted it to be just right!”
In fact, JoJo and Jordan had instant chemistry during the 2016 season of the reality dating series, and in the end, he suggested it. They began planning the wedding in 2019 (after Jordan proposed a second time, off-camera), but the pandemic interfered with their better plans.
“We had an appointment in 2020, then we had an appointment in 2021,” Jordan says. “We kept thinking the world would go back to normal but it didn’t!”
The couple say they briefly considered running away, but eventually “realized that time was really on our side and decided to get away with it so that the day would be exactly what we wanted,” Jojo notes.
Now, as the couple enjoys the bliss of the newlyweds, they are grateful for how far they have come. “Jordan is everything I’ve always looked for in a guy,” Jojo says. “I’m totally ready to start this next chapter of our lives!”
