‘Bachelor in Paradise’ alums Joe Amabile, Serena Pitt get married

Joe Amabile — AKA “Grocery Store Joe” — and Serena Pitt got married Thursday at New York City’s City Hall.

The “Bachelor in Paradise” couple stunned fans when they posted an Instagram video of their nuptials nearly one year before their original wedding day next September.

“JUST MARRIED !!” Pitt and Amabile captioned their joint announcement on Thursday. “We are still having a wedding this September but who doesn’t want to get married twice!”

The lovebirds also shared a full one-minute and fifty-second video of the ceremony — which Natasha Parker, who co-hosts the podcast “Click Bait” with Amabile, filmed as their witness — on their YouTube channel.

In the video, fans could see the legal presider asking them to say “I do” as they held hands and wore face masks.

After they were pronounced legally married, the couple tore off their masks and embraced each other with a hug and several kisses.

Neither Pitt, 25, nor Amabile, 26, went with traditional wedding attire. The bride wore a cream long-sleeve top with black leather pants and black boots, while the groom wore a navy quarter zip sweater, black pants and white sneakers.

“We have always known marriage was in our future, it just looked a little bit different than we expected,” the couple told People on Thursday.

Pitt and Amabile added that they’re “already planning” their wedding next year, but they wanted a “private moment just the two of us” that “felt so special and intimate.”

Bachelor Nation immediately flooded the couple’s post with sweet comments.

“Congrats you two!!!! (For the record I’m ALL about getting married 2x)❤️❤️❤️,” host Jesse Palmer, who had a second wedding to Emely Fardo in France two years after eloping in Connecticut, commented.
