East Grand Forks Couple Gets Married on ‘The Bachelor’
An East Grand Forks couple had planned a quick, low key wedding in Las Vegas. That all changed when they were asked to exchange vows on ABC's popular reality show, 'The Bachelor.'
According to the Grand Forks Herald, before heading to Vegas for what was supposed to be a 'quickie' wedding, Leah Starr and Travis Foster were shocked to receive a phone call asking if they would tie the knot on national television.
Travis and Leah had originally booked their wedding for October 8, but the show called and asked if they would change it to October 7 so they could film it.
The couple, who are not big fans of 'The Bachelor,' knew the show was very popular.
When we found out it was this big, popular show, we thought, 'How does this happen? How did they pick us? This is too crazy.'
The couple is still unaware why they were chosen as there were many other couples getting married that day, too.
The episode aired on Monday, January 25. Bachelor Ben Higgins and his date Becca attended the ceremony. Ben even had a one-on-one conversation with the groom.
ABC made sure the Fosters were taken care of. They were given a limousine for transportation and Leah had many dresses to choose from. She even had her hair and makeup done by the show's staff. The show did not put any sort of script together so they were able to exchange their own vows.
The Fosters definitely had a wedding we will all remember!
We didn't have a fancy wedding. But we had an unforgettable one.
You can see Leah and Travis tie the knot on ABC's website. Congratulations to the happy couple!
