From Bachelor brush-off to blushing bride!
, who competed on Sean Lowe
's season of The Bachelor
, is spilling details about her "dream come true" wedding to Patrick Daniels last week
and why she has "zero regrets" about her trip down the aisle.
"I never thought I would be saying this because it's so cliche, but it truly was the happiest day of my life," Alameri reveals exclusively to ET.
"It was so intimate and it was all about Patrick and I. Not a party, not the guests, not family -- just him and I -- which is what I think it should truly be about, after all," she says.
Alameri and her now-husband, tied the knot on Dec. 29 in an intimate city hall wedding ceremony in San Diego, California.
"Everyone told me I would regret doing it City Hall style, but I have zero regrets and even more happy with the choice than I imagined I would be," the 29-year-old real estate developer gushes. "We have been celebrating everyday with friends and family, allowing the focus to be on one person at a time, so there is no lack of celebration."
Alameri, who tied the knot with a bouquet of red roses, competed against 25 other love hopefuls during season 17 of The Bachelor and made headlines when she shockingly refused to make out with Lowe during their one-on-one date in the desert. Lowe later sent Alameri home due to her "unwillingness to compromise."
Now, Alameri reveals that she is thrilled to start 2017 as a newlywed and love Daniels "forever and ever."
"It's been my dream come true," she says, "Especially the amazing man that I married! I'm the happiest I've ever been!"
