Former "Bachelor" star Ben Higgins has tied the knot with his fiancée Jessica Clarke.

Higgins, 32, and Clarke, 25, exchanged "I do's" in a romantic ceremony at The Estate in Cherokee Dock near Nashville, Tennessee, Saturday, People reported.

"I am so excited," Higgins told the outlet. "We have so much to look forward to. And I know we will have a beautiful marriage."

The bride walked down the aisle in a wedding gown designed by Anne Barge, while the groom looked dapper in his tuxedo.

Higgins and Clarke wrote their own vows, while the ceremony itself featured "Winnie the Pooh" quotes hand-picked by the couple, the outlet reported. All guests were required to be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test in order to attend the event.

Several members of the "Bachelor Nation" were in attendance at their nuptials, including Nick Viall, Becca Kufrin, Thomas Jacobs, Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconnetti. Wells Adams served as one of the groomsmen.

After the intimate ceremony, the guests headed to a lakeside reception for cocktails and individually packed dinners that featured the newlyweds' favorite foods, including pizza and sliders. The Taylor Pace Orchestra played during the reception.

Higgins and Clarke's special day was planned by Sara Fried of Fete Nashville and photographed by Jordan Voth.

Clarke and Higgins met via social media in 2018 and got engaged in March last year. Before their wedding, the couple gushed about each other.

"Ben doesn't just make me want to be a better person, but he actually makes me a better person," Clarke told People of Higgins. "He assures me in all of my dreams and all of my goals. I never thought I'd have a partner that accepted every part of me."

Higgins, meanwhile, described Clarke as "incredibly empathetic and caring."

"She encourages me, and she supports me and I know she cares about who I am and where I'm going. I'm so excited that I get to love her — and be loved by her — every single day. And I am so thankful that I found her," he said.

Higgins was previously engaged to Lauren Bushnell, who captured his heart during his stint on ABC's "The Bachelor." The two starred in "Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?" which documented their relationship and wedding planning. However, they split in May 2017.

"I think mutually Lauren and I saw that life was getting more difficult," Higgins told E! News of their split. "I would say the joy that we felt toward our relationship at the beginning was — for some reason — slipping away, and we were both working very hard to bring that joy back. And it just never seemed to get there."

Bushnell is now happily married to singer Chris Lane. They welcomed their firstborn, a baby boy named Dutton Walker Lane, in June.
