Amanda Stanton, Bachelor alumni, married her fiancé Michael Fogel! On September 2, the couple exchanged vows at Kestrel Park in Santa Ynez, California.
Lauren Bushnell Lane, Emily Ferguson and Raven, Adam Gottschalk, and Andi Dorfman were also in the crowd.
Stanton appeared to be an angel as she came down the aisle. She looked stunning in a Monique Lhuillier gown, with Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams playing in the background.
Stanton competed on The Bachelor as one of several contestants a year after her divorce from Nick Buonfiglio in 2015. She didn’t get a rose from Ben Higgin’s there. The following year, she appeared on Bachelor in Paradise, where she became engaged to Josh Murray.
The next year, though, they announced their split. She returned to Bachelor in Paradise for season 4 to try her luck, but it ended in a brief relationship with Robby Hayes.
What Is the Husband’s Name?
It turns out that love was always present. Michael Fogel, 32, is the groom. Fogel is in the commercial real estate industry. Before they started dating towards the end of 2020, the pair had known one other for years. The next year, on Valentine’s Day, they made it official.
He proposed to Stanton around 9 months before the wedding. Who can say no to a three-stone emerald-cut diamond ring? Fogel proposed to her in the living room of the couple’s apartment.
The best part was that Stanton’s daughters were in on the joke as well. Fogel also gave them adorable small diamond rings.
More Information On The Wedding
The joyous celebration was a true family affair. Kinsley, 10, and Charlie, 8, Stanton’s kids, were instrumental in the process. Kinsley was the maid of honour, while Charlie was the flower girl. Stanton stated of her children, “They are both quite satisfied with their employment.”
Stanton also stated that her children were excited to refer to her spouse as “stepdad.”
The guests celebrated the union of the two lovebirds with delicious meals. They started with lobster rolls and then moved on to a fish and steak meal. For dessert, there was a crepe station. Pizza and grilled cheese were available as late-night nibbles!
Stanton desired that everything be “timeless.” “It was an upscale modern garden wedding, very basic,” she added.
When asked about marrying Fogel, she remarked, “It’s really special to make this promise,” adding that she was “so delighted and happy.”
Stanton had to try her luck at finding true love before she met Fogel, as seen by her appearances on reality shows. The pair has been dating for two years and had been friends for around two years prior. Stanton posted a few family photos from the wedding to Instagram.
Friendship is the most solid basis for love. Stanton has finally found the love she was looking for. Her two girls appear to appreciate their new stepfather, especially since they assisted him in proposing to her.
