‘The Bachelor’ alum Krystal Nielson marries Miles Bowles in


The Bachelor alum Krystal Nielson has married her fiance, Miles Bowles, after nearly three years of dating.

Krystal, 35, and Miles, 28, tied the knot during an intimate wedding ceremony in front of their closest family and friends in La Jolla, CA, on Saturday, August 19, People reported.


The Bachelor alum took to Instagram a couple of days later and posted a slideshow of wedding photos, one of which included the couple’s two-year-old daughter, Andara Rose, as the flower girl.

“Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Bowles!!!” Krystal captioned the images.

Krystal proceeded to upload a video of footage that quickly flashed from Krystal getting ready for her wedding in a robe to kissing her handsome groom after the ceremony.

“Allow me to introduce myself… I am Mrs. Krystal Bowles!” the Bachelor in Paradise alum gushed.

She wrote in the caption of her post, “New chapter, same story, now introducing…. Mrs. Krystal Bowles!”

Krystal described her nuptials as “organic, earthy and natural” with “nods of citrus” from the orchard where the couple exchanged vows. They had a diverse assortment of live music throughout their big day — including a harp, cellist and saxophonist.

The newlyweds’ first dance was to “You Send Me” by Aretha Franklin.

And during the wedding reception, guests dined on gourmet tacos, pizza, a gelato cart, signature cocktails, and a cold brew coffee bar.

The Bachelor alum, who began dating Miles in May 2020 and accepted his marriage proposal in October 2022, told People that “commitment to family and open communication with one another” has been the foundation of their relationship. 

Krystal and Miles are now off enjoying their honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

On Tuesday, August 22,, Krystal posted a selfie with Miles at the San Diego airport and wrote, “Honeymoon bound!!!! Also been up since 2:30AM bc I was soooo excited I couldn’t sleep! Lol.”

When Krystal announced her engagement to Miles late last year, she insisted it was “for all the right reasons,” which was a nod to her past on The Bachelor franchise.

Krystal was previously married to Chris Randone, whom she met on Bachelor in Paradise’s fifth season and got engaged during the 2018 finale. They got married in June 2019 and documented the event for Bachelor in Paradise’s sixth season.

The pair announced their decision to separate in February 2020, just eight months after saying “I do,” and then Krystal confirmed in August 2020 that she and Chris were following through with a divorce. (Chris told Us Weekly at the time he was hoping to reconcile with Krystal but learned she had moved on).

“It was really scary… That was really tough because I felt like going on Paradise and getting matched up with someone, there was so much love and attention and celebration around our relationship. And I was like, ‘Wow, being in a relationship means I’m loved.’ But by myself, I was a villain,” Krystal explained on the “Talking It Out with Bachelor Nation” podcast hosted by Mike Johnson and Bryan Abasolo earlier this year.

Krystal was dubbed “the villain” of Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelor, which aired in 2018, and so her stint on Paradise was essentially an opportunity to rehab her image and have a redemption story.

Once Krystal and Chris, a villain from Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette, got together, they became a fan-favorite power couple.

“So deciding to separate and divorce, I was really afraid that outside of that relationship, I would be the villain again and I wouldn’t be loved and I wouldn’t be accepted — and I would be [seen as] a failure,” Krystal confessed.

“For a long time, we kind of battled on if we were going to split and when we were going to be ready. Because it was very scary for both of us, I would say. It was really hard.”

Krystal recalled ending her marriage to Chris on Valentine’s Day 2020, which was a couple of weeks before the coronavirus pandemic began and “everything shut down.”

“That was really tough and I think I became really — I didn’t know what to say because I wanted to be respectful of my ex and at the same time kind of honor both of our grieving of what was,” Krystal shared.

“And inviting the public in, because they were so invested in our relationship, was really challenging to navigate. I really didn’t know how because I needed privacy, but yet still felt this duty to share that with all the fans of the show.”


Krystal said navigating her divorce in the public eye was “really tricky,” adding, “I just felt like I really pulled back for a while because I wasn’t really sure what to say.”

After Krystal began dating Miles in Spring 2020, she discovered in August 2020 that she was pregnant — a “f-cking bananas” moment.

Krystal admitted during a December 2020 appearance on the “Scheananigans with Scheana Shay” podcast that “it was scary” to find out she was pregnant because she and Miles had only been dating for about four months at that point. She was also still legally wrapped up in her marriage to Chris.

“There was a divorce that happened, there was a pandemic that happened, then I found out I was going to be a mom, so there was so much going on that I really just shut down,” Krystal said.

“At the time, I stepped away from my business and there was a point when I was down to my last month of being able to pay my bills and I still had my staff running but not taking a paycheck. I was two months pregnant and there was so much stress and pressure, so I had to take a step back to reevaluate and rebuild.”

Krystal admitted she felt so much “pressure” to “perform high and do things so over the top” to prove to others that she had been “living it up.”

“But really, it was very frivolous and wasn’t for the right reasons. As I was rebuilding my life and my family coming out of this pandemic, I just found what was important to me and where I wanted to put my time, money, and energy into,” Krystal said.

When Krystal and Miles welcomed their baby girl, Andara, in March 2021, Chris actually reached out to his ex-wife to congratulate her.

Krystal said on “Talking It Out” that she wasn’t her true self on The Bachelor and it took her a while to realize that people would still love her for her imperfections, hardships and vulnerability.

Krystal and Chris’ breakup came as a shock to fans because Chris had told Us in August 2019 that Krystal had decided to stop using birth control and they wanted to start trying for a family in early 2020.

People previously reported that Chris and Krystal’s personalities didn’t mesh at all and they weren’t on the same page about what they want out of life.

The couple reportedly wasn’t ready to get married but felt “immense pressure” to give Bachelor Nation the happy ending they had been waiting for.
