Finding a soul mate on the small screen may have turned out to be only a fantasy for Amber Alchalabi, a former contestant on The Bachelor in 2007, but her dream of true love became a reality when she met businessman Brian Reynolds. Vying each week for one of the coveted roses bestowed by U.S. Navy Lieutenant Andy Baldwin during the 10th season of the reality series, the fourth grade teacher came close to claiming the heart of the officer and gentleman before her elimination in week six. Although saddened by her loss, the Texas beauty soon discovered that she was destined to say “I do” to another resident from the Lone Star state.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the happy couple are currently making plans to exchange vows in an outdoor ceremony in the East Texas city of Conroe. A number of fellow former contestants from the ABC reality show will receive invitations emblazoned with an August 30, 2008 wedding date.
