'Bachelorette' DeAnna Pappas ties the knot

It wasn’t a “Bachelorette” match, but contestant DeAnna Pappas did have a wedding made in reality television heaven.

People reports that Pappas, 29, married high school teacher Stephen Stagliano, 27, on Saturday in her native Georgia. (She wore a strapless Disney Bridal gown and cowboy boots, FYI.)

Though Stephen is a teacher, he does have reality connections.

Stephen and DeAnna, who got engaged last summer, were introduced by Stephen's twin, Michael Stagliano, and his then-girlfriend, Holly Durst.

Michael appeared on Jillian Harris' season of “The Bachelorette,” and you may recognize Holly from Matt Grant's season of “The Bachelor.”

Phew, got that?

It gets more confusing, if you want to follow along. Michael and Holly, who have since broken up, won last season of “Bachelor Pad,” which ended with a dramatic twist: The on-air announcement of Holly’s engagement to a fellow contestant… who wasn’t Michael. Drama!

That's not all: As you may recall, Pappas was rejected by Brad Womack on his first stint as “The Bachelor.” Which led to her season as “The Bachelorette.” DeAnna was engaged to contestant Jesse Csincsak for the second half of 2008.

But DeAnna's a bachelorette no longer: An onlooker told People magazine that she and new husband Stephen "were giddy with excitement" as they tied the knot.

    I have acquired some new elements from your internet site about desktops. Another thing I've always imagined is that computer systems have become an item that each family must have for some reasons. They provide convenient ways to organize households, pay bills, search for information, study, hear music and in some cases watch tv series. An innovative method to complete many of these tasks is with a computer. These pc's are mobile, small, potent and easily transportable.
