Another final rose was handed out this weekend. Bachelorette contestant JJ Lane, who appeared on JoJo Fletcher’s season of ABC’s reality series, married Kayla Hughes in Denver, Colorado, on Saturday, February 29.

“We are thrilled to be husband and wife and officially start this next, and best, chapter in life together,” the couple tells The Knot in their joint statement. “We look forward to starting our own family and continuing to love and watch Gemma grow and blossom.”

Photographer Alyssa Reinhold, who’s based in the couple’s home state of Colorado, captured sweet portraits of the pair inside their venue in Denver.

The couple first connected after Lane, who works in finance, sent Hughes a message via LinkedIn. Lane—a dad to daughter Gemma—proposed to Hughes just as the sun was setting during a family vacation in Kauai, Hawaii.
