Who needs a rose ceremony?
Former Bachelor contestant Kacie Boguskie has scored a rosy happy ending of her own – away from the TV spotlight: The Nashville beauty is engaged!
Boguskie is set to wed her music-producer beau, Rusty Gaston.
“I really didn’t know I could feel love like this. I always dreamed of being married but I never dreamed it could feel this perfect,” she tells PEOPLE of her engagement.
Boguskie took to Instagram to share the happy news, posting a photo of her and Gaston holding a monogrammed pillow that read “Mr. & Mrs.”
The Bachelor fans will remember Boguskie from her twofer stint on the show: She unsuccessfully vied for the affections of Ben Flajnik on season 16, and then did an encore the following season to make a go for Sean Lowe.
She’s already getting a jump start on the big day: Boguskie has been Tweeting and Instagramming about the wedding prep, posting a snapshot of her flipping through a wedding magazine and revealing that she and her man have already settled on bridal registries.
“Cheers to white lace, [tulle], and a lifetime of happiness and love!!! #futuremrsgaston #weddingbliss,” she wrote on Instagram.
