Rycroft, who married insurance agent Tye Strickland, said that their Isla Mujeres, Mexico, wedding was nothing short of breathtaking. Talking with In Touch exclusively, Rycroft says that emotionally, she "was fine until 'Here Comes the Bride' started." That's when the waterworks kicked in.
"I think everything hit me at once. My dad started to walk down the aisle, and I just stopped him. I grabbed his arm, and I was like, 'Hold on,' and I started crying. And I saw Tye, and bless his heart, he had these big tears in his eyes, too. It was very emotional," Rycroft explains.
Tye was equally awestruck, saying: "When I saw her, I just lost my breath - like I was in a football game and had the wind knocked out of me ... I've never felt that way in my whole life, and I just couldn't help it. She was the most gorgeous bride I've ever seen in my life, and it was amazing. It was absolutely perfect."
Rycroft shot to fame when she was famously ousted from 'The Bachelor' by Jason Mesnick after she had already been proposed to. Her heartbreak paid off though, landing her a spot on 'Dancing With the Stars' shortly after, where she placed third. She's now a correspondent for 'Good Morning America.'
