Congratulations to AshLee Frazier!

The former Bachelor contestant has found her happily ever after with longtime friend Aaron Williams, ET confirms. The Houston-based real estate developer popped the question during a trip to New York City on Saturday.

The couple was walking along the Brooklyn Bridge when Williams stopped at the very top, got down on one knee and asked Frazier to marry him. The romantic moment was witnessed by a crowd of tourists who cheered for the newly engaged pair.

Frazier tells ET that she was "in a fairy-tale daze until the entire bridge of people around us roared with cheers."

"I was so surprised and trying to hug him all while he was still putting the ring on my shaky finger on the bridge over the water," she gushes. "Can you imagine how he must have felt?"

"After a 10-year friendship and 11-month courtship, I am marrying my best friend," Frazier adds. "It was all very romantic."

Williams and Frazier later dined at New York City restaurant Scarpetta to celebrate the happy news.

While the 36-year-old blogger -- who competed for Sean Lowe's heart on Season 16 of The Bachelor and later appeared on season one of Bachelor in Paradise -- has yet to post a photo of the ring, she did commemorate the special moment on Instagram.

"💙 Best walk. Best view. Forever in my heart!," she captioned a video of herself walking across the Brooklyn Bridge.

While Frazier enjoys her recent engagement, other Bachelor alums are gearing up for their own wedding.

ET recently caught up with former Bachelor Ben Higgins and his fiancée, Lauren Bushnell, who revealed that they'd love to have a televised wedding.

"When it comes to the wedding, if that's an opportunity or possibility, it's a really great one for us," Higgins said. "It would almost be stupid not to. And you're going to have cameras at your wedding anyway. There's going to be people following you around no matter what, so why not add a whole production crew?"
