The picturesque mountains of Meredith, Colorado, were the backdrop for the heartwarming nuptials of "Bachelor in Paradise" stars Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert. The enchanting ceremony took place this past Saturday, creating memories to last a lifetime.

Uniting their lives under the banner of "Camp Bell," the wedding celebrated two poignant memories. The name reflects Miller-Keyes' cherished summer camp experiences and a tribute to Unglert's late mother, Debbie Bell. The couple plans to adopt the last name "Bell," commemorating Unglert's mother who tragically lost her life to breast cancer in 2006.

Their love story ignited on the set of "Bachelor in Paradise" in 2019, leading to their much-awaited engagement announcement last October. The couple's shared admiration for Colorado heightened the emotional significance of their mountain wedding.

The 28-year-old Miller-Keyes, a native of Fredericksburg, Virginia, and an accomplished model and TV figure, revealed the couple's aspiration for an immersive experience for their 75 attendees. The retreat's cabin accommodations ensured guests could relish the celebrations all weekend.

Miller-Keyes shared her excitement about the unique, non-traditional wedding plans. Highlights included a vibrant welcome dinner reminiscent of their shared love for Italy. In an ode to their "Camp Bell" theme, activities throughout the weekend channelled the fun and camaraderie of summer camps.

Prioritizing elegance, the ceremony was adorned in minimalist white and green tones, aptly representing the couple's personalities. Their beloved canine, Alastor, enjoyed the sprawling venue's expansive grounds throughout the festivities.

For the occasion, Miller-Keyes wore an exquisite Lihi Hod gown, later transitioning into a Katherine Tash ensemble for the reception. Walking to the tunes of Sixpence's "Kiss Me" and Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry Be Happy," Miller-Keyes and Unglert, respectively, approached the altar.

The union was officiated by Unglert's close friend, Jackson, with the couple exchanging heartfelt vows. Miller-Keyes eagerly awaited Unglert's vows, praising his eloquence and wit. Post-wedding, the newlyweds intend to cherish intimate moments in Aspen, followed by a honeymoon to South Africa in December.

As they look ahead, Miller-Keyes gleefully anticipates their life journey, hinting at the possibility of a growing family in the future.
