Check your DMs, people. Because you never know when you might get a message request from a Bachelor! That’s how it happened for Jessica Clarke when season 20 Bachelor Ben Higgins slid into her DMs. Ben proposed in March 2020 and now, it’s time to celebrate a wedding in Bachelor Nation! Ben Higgins and Jessica Clarke married on November 13th in Nashville — and we’ve got the stunning photos to prove it.
The wedding took place at The Estate at Cherokee Dock, aka the former home of Reba McEntire, no big deal. Jessica chose deep forest green, light green, and white colors to reflect the ambiance of the location and natural surroundings. Guests included Bachelor alums Nick Viall, Becca Kufrin, Jared Jared Haibon, and Ashley Iaconnetti, and Wells Adams – who also served as a groomsman!
We’ve got plenty more details below — including intel on Jessica’s dress! Let’s take a look at Ben + Jessica’s gorgeous fall wedding day planned by Fête Nashville Luxury Weddings and captured by Jordan Voth!
Jessica’s Custom Anne Barge Gown
Jessica looked beautiful in a timeless gown designed by Anne Barge. Shawne Jacobs, the Creative Director at Anne Barge who designed the dress, shared inspiration and details about the custom dress with us:
“Jessica’s custom wedding dress has a sophisticated elegance. It is a chic column wedding dress made of Spanish crepe with an arched, pleated cuff at the front neckline that extends into a low V at the back. The column-shaped skirt skims the hips into a very soft narrow A-line and a sweep train. Crepe fabric-covered buttons line the top of the back neckline to the end of the hem. Shawne custom-designed the illusion tulle detachable bishop sleeves to enhance Jessica’s bohemian style and give her a ‘wow factor.'”
“To make the dress even more special and unique to Jessica, the sleeves were accented with a French Chantilly Lace and added French Alençon lace sewn with freshwater pearls from Jessica’s mother’s very own wedding dress sleeves. To complete Jessica’s wedding day look, Shawne selected a complimentary French Chantilly floral lace two-tiered chapel-length veil.”
