One less bachelor is looking for love. Michael Stagliano, who competed for Jillian Harris' heart during the fifth season of "The Bachelorette" before winning the franchise spin off "Bachelor Pad 2," married girlfriend Emily Tuchscherer on May 24, according to a May 25 report by People.

Stagliano and Tuchscherer, who met on Memorial Day in 2012, married during an outdoor ceremony in downtown Chicago. The happy groom shared parts of his big day with Instagram followers by posting a selection of images from the event, including one especially adorable snapshot of him standing with his bride and clenching his fist in excitement just after the ceremony concluded.

The guest list included a healthy helping of former "Bachelor" personalities. Included in the mix were "The Bachelorette" season four headliner DeAnna Pappas, who is married to and has a baby girl with Stagliano's twin brother Stephen; "The Bachelor" season 14 runner up Tenley Molzahn and boyfriend Kiptyn Locke, who was the runner up during Harris' season as "The Bachelorette;" and former "Bachelorette" contestants Graham Bunn and William Holman.

Still others offered up their well wishes via Twitter. Included was Leslie Hughes, who competed for Sean Lowe's affections during "The Bachelor" season 17. She tweeted "#CONGRATS you two beautiful people!!!! @emilytuch @MichaelStag pray you guys have an amazing blessed full of joy life together."

Stagliano's nuptials are the most recent in a long line of life-changing events for alums of the popular ABC franchise, which currently features 27-year old attorney Andi Dorfman as its romantic lead. In the wedding department, Lowe married Catherine Giudici during a Jan. 26 ceremony that was televised live to millions across the nation. March 15 was the big day for "Bachelorette" season six's Ty Brown and "Bachelor" season 14's Elizabeth Kitt, who made it official in front of a small gathering of immediate family members.

"The Bachelorette" featuring Dorfman and her group of suitors airs Monday nights on ABC. Tune in to catch the drama and find out if she finds the man of her dreams.
