In an interview with The View in May, the race car driver said the couple’s wedding venue has a “beautiful, old-world feel, with a lot of vines and greenery,” adding that “it’s not your typical beach wedding. It’s so pretty.”
Us broke the news that Burnham, 27, and Luyendyk, 37 — who proposed during The Bachelor’s “After the Final Rose” special in March 2018 after breaking up with Becca Kufrin — are expecting their first child, a girl, together. “We weren’t trying, but we are so excited,” he told Us. “It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives.”

The couple jetted to Hawaii a few days before the wedding for laid-back festivities that included a helicopter tour of the islands and a rehearsal dinner on a sunset cruise the night before the nuptials.
“Ever since we’ve gotten together, we wanted to fast-forward to this day,” Luyendyk told Us. “It’s been a year. That’s kind of crazy ‘cause I remember a year ago we were doing ‘happy couples [weekend on The Bachelor]’ and talking about getting married and wanting to do that, even last year, so it’s awesome that the day is finally here.”
