Emily Ferguson, a former contestant on The Bachelor, wed NHL star William Karlsson on Saturday, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. Ferguson and Karlsson, who have been in a relationship since 2017, married at Resorts World Las Vegas.
Former “Bachelor” contestant Emily Ferguson and NHL star William Karlsson are married. The wedding took place over the weekend at Resorts World Las Vegas, the reality star confirmed through Instagram on Sunday. “Officially Mr. & Mrs. Karlsson,” Ferguson, 29, captioned a breathtaking wedding shot.
A source informed Page Six that the pair began off their wedding festivities on Friday night with a rehearsal dinner at Fuhu, where guests dined on Asian-inspired cuisine. They then organized a reception in the gaming bar RedTail, where they served specialized cocktails and karaoke to their guests.
On the day of their wedding, the bride and her attendants prepared in a 6,500-square-foot estate-style suite at Crockfords, while the Las Vegas Knights player, also 29 years old, and his groomsmen got ready in Eight Cigar Bar. The couple exchanged their vows on the Rose Rooftop overlooking the Strip.
The drumbeats, the official drum line of the Las Vegas Knights, welcomed guests to the Lily Ballroom to begin the festivities. According to reports, the reception included a magnificent supper and speeches from the Maid of Honor, Ferguson's twin sister Haley, and the Best Man, Mans Johansson.
“The bride, groom, and their guests danced the night away and enjoyed late-night delights such as a cotton candy cart, a grilled cheese station, and Mulberry Pizza,” a source revealed.
The bride was stunned in a ballgown-style wedding gown for the ceremony and then changed into a shimmering minidress for the reception portion of the evening. Meanwhile, her husband adhered to the convention by wearing a black tuxedo.
Emily and William had a brunch for close friends and family the day after their wedding, followed by a day at the VIP pool in private cabanas.
Emily was a contestant on the 20th season of “The Bachelor,” battling for Ben Higgins' heart with her sister until Week 7. She subsequently appeared in Seasons 3 and 4 of “The Bachelor in Paradise.”
Emily and Karlsson began dating in November of 2017 and announced their engagement on December 11, 2020. In June, her twin sister also tied the knot at Resorts World with Finnish hockey star Oula Pale.
