Colton Underwood weds Jordan C. Brown in lavish, romantic Napa ceremony

·2 min read

Colton Underwood is a bachelor no more.

The former NFL player, who went from from wooing a wannabe wife on “The Bachelor” to coming out as gay, has found his happy ending. On Sunday he was celebrating his first day of wedded bliss with Jordan C. Brown, who he married the day before in a by-all-accounts splendid Napa wedding.

The romantic ceremony at the Carneros Resort and Spa in Napa Valley was witnessed by 200 guests, People reported in an exclusive. It was a three-day extravaganza involving a family dinner and welcome party Friday night. The Saturday nuptials were kicked off by a morning disco-themed pool party.

Both grooms donned custom Tom Ford suits — Underwood in deep green, and Brown in blue. As everyone exited the ceremony, they were treated to a pool performance by Stanford University’s artistic swimming team.

“We wanted to keep the energy going,” Brown told People. “I like to host and bring people together. It’s our wedding, but it’s also a three-day party that we are throwing for our nearest and dearest.”

Former linebacker Underwood was a contestant during the 2019 “Bachelor” season, in which he eventually — after a couple of hitches, but not the crucial one —successfully vied for Cassie Randolph’s affections after she dropped out and then took him back in a dramatic season finale.

The relationship was short-lived, though, and they broke up in 2020, just two months after he went through a bout of COVID-19. Three months later, Randolph filed a temporary restraining order against her ex, accusing him of putting a tracking device on her car. She later rescinded it after they came to a private agreement.

About a year later, in April 2021, Underwood came out as gay during an interview on “Good Morning America.” He later said he’d been blackmailed into revealing his true colors. Last year, Randolph spoke about the shock of learning about that revelation.

In March 2022, the 31-year-old Underwood announced his engagement to the 38-year-old political strategist, who he had met at a party two years earlier.

“I’ve never been more sure about something,” Underwood told People of his beloved.

“He has the biggest heart, and he’s such a good friend to all of the people in his life. He goes out of his way to take care of his friends and his family. That speaks volumes. It was one of the first things that I noticed about him.”
