Bachelorette star from Season 4, DeAnna Pappas, is getting married this weekend.  I suppose we can add this to the list of Bachelor/ette successes.  While she isn’t marrying  the man she chose during her run of the Bachelorette, DeAnna did meet her soon-to-be-husband by being on the show.

Brief side note: On the show, DeAnna originally chose Jesse Csincsak, a pro snowboarder, but that was short-lived.  Interestingly enough, Jesse married a Bachelor reject (from Season 13), Ashley Lueders.  (I should clarify: Bachelor reject meaning appeared on the show as a contestant but was given the boot.)

How they met: Ok, back to DeAnna.  DeAnna is marrying Stephen Stagliano, a high school teacher and twin brother to Michael Stagliano.  Michael Stagliano appeared on The Bachelorette Season 5.  DeAnna met his brother at a party for “The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All” special in 2009.

Apparentlythe ring is a 2.12 carat beauty from a Boston-area jeweler (woot woot) Kings Jewelers.

The Love Tweet: DeAnna tweeted a long, gushy love note to her fiance, which I have posted here for your viewing pleasure.  Commence jealousy now: @DeAnnaPappas: What a journey I have been on to find my soul mate. Through it all, I have found a man that I can trust & depend on. A man that’s leads me. And a man that loves me unconditionally. Thank u all for following me throughout my love story. In 4 days, I will marry the best man that I have ever known. Thank you @StephenStag for making me the woman I always wanted 2 be. U are the best thing that has ever happened 2 me.♥

The Wedding Plans: According to online gossip sites citing Star (I would take this with a grain of salt) DeAnna will be wearing cowboy boots down the aisle along with a Disney-inspired princess dress.  The wedding location? Georgia. (according to Stephen’s Twitter) Honeymoon spot? Belize

Again, the Bachelorette stars are picking quite a bit better than the Bachelors.  How ‘bout we change those numbers this season Ben?
