Is Bachelor Nation prepared? Engaged Bachelor in Paradise couple Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon revealed their wedding officiant on Wednesday, October 17, and naturally, this person is very well-acquainted with the reality couple’s love story.

However, the officiant is not longtime franchise host Chris Harrison.

Haibon took to Instagram to post a photo of Tanner Tolbert faux-officiating his ceremony to Iaconetti in San Juan, Puerto Rico. “Dearly beloved, @tanner.tolbert is officiating our wedding in August 2019,” Haibon announced. “This is a preview of things to come.”

The couple is currently on vacation with Tolbert and his wife, Jade Roper, whose love story mimics Iaconetti and Haibon’s at least in one way: the Tolberts also met during Bachelor in Paradise filming.

The pair got engaged this summer during a brief appearance on the latest season of Paradise. Haibon proposed with a 2.4-carat ring designed by Neil Lane. They have since said that select members of the reality franchise will be invited (likely Ben Higgins and Kaitlyn Bristowe).

“I think Kaitlin and Shawn would make the invite because I would naturally invite Kaitlin; she was a big part of my experience on this franchise,” Iaconetti previously told Glamour.

The romance portion of the couple’s love story is famously long-winded. Haibon was vehemently opposed to dating Iaconetti despite her unrequited love.

“There was never nothing. We got along really well, but for me, there wasn’t that romantic, boom, fireworks,” Haibon said. “A lot of it had to do with timing. It was literally a month after I finished The Bachelorette, which I was very invested in, when Ashley crossed my path [on Paradise]. Even if it was really good, I was like, ‘No, no, no, no, it’s not going to work out.’ I never really gave that an opportunity. What’s funny, though, is that I always knew I was going to have some sort of romantic-comedy spin on my love life. I just didn’t know it would end up like this.”
