Hannah Godwin & Dylan Barbour's Wedding Photos and Details
Hannah and Dylan's wedding was on Wednesday, August 23, 2023—and the bride teased their non-traditional timing in our prewedding conversation. "It might not be on a weekend," she told us. "I've never said that before!"
When gathering inspiration for their French destination celebration, there was one event the couple kept returning to, hoping they could recreate the same energy. "We had an engagement party years ago, before COVID. It was about a month before the world shut down," Hannah told us. "It was literally the party of like the decade. Everybody still talks about it. So we're hopeful that with a similar crew of people, [our wedding] will be equally as awesome and fun."
Given the photos we've seen so far, we're confident that they succeeded. Here's everything we know about Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour's wedding.
The Wedding Took Place in Paris, France
Although Hannah and Dylan's relationship began in Mexico, they sealed their union in Europe. The couple invited their nearest and dearest to celebrate their marriage in Paris, France. The couple swapped vows at Chateau de Villette, a historic estate located about 40 miles outside Paris. The bride wore three Pronovias dresses throughout her wedding day, while the groom wore a classic black tuxedo. The couple's wedding party members were also dressed in classic black gowns and tuxes.
Despite being engaged since 2019, Godwin told us that the majority of their wedding planning journey took place just this year. "We fully started planning our wedding in February, so we gave ourselves less than eight months to do it," she explained. "Luckily, we have so many awesome vendors and teams around us that I've really relied on them."
When thinking ahead to the big day, there was one moment in particular that she was looking forward to most: "The most exciting thing for me is being able to get our family and friends together and just have fun making memories. I'm excited to be in full bridal mode!"
They Hosted "Next-Level" Themed Prewedding Events
The bride and groom worked with Birch Event Design to create "next-level" concepts for their entire lineup of wedding events, including the welcome party and the rehearsal dinner. "The wedding is three days of events," Godwin told us of their plans. "Each event actually has totally different colors, different wardrobe inspo and different vibes."
Hannah and Dylan's wedding began with a welcome cruise around the Seine, where guests got an up-close and personal view of the Eiffel Tower. (In a sweet Instagram Story video, the bride and her father could be seen dancing to "Sweet Home Alabama" as their boat passed the famed landmark.)
The bride's wedding wardrobe was one of the buzziest topics leading up to the big day, and her styles certainly didn't dispapoint. For the welcome party, she donned a square-neck mini dress by CINQ, paired with sheer statement gloves and a matching veil, along with diamonds from rental compnay Verstolo.
She went on to sport a rising trend for the garden party-themed rehearsal dinner. For the intiamte soiree, which took place at a table set up in a whimsical courtyard, she wore a strapless Undone by Kate dress with lace paneling and a neck scarf. (You might have seen a smiliar style on recent brides like AnnaSophia Robb and Emily Mariko.)
They Celebrated With Bachelor Nation Friends
Of course, we couldn't talk about Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour's wedding plans without asking about the guest list—and we found out that there would be a few familiar faces in the crowd. "We did send invites to about eight or ten members of Bachelor Nation," Godwin teased. "So, we'll see who can make it—hopefully all of them!"

Inside Hannah Godwin's Wedding Self-Care Routine
Given her four-year engagement, Hannah Godwin had plenty of time to envision what her big day will look like. Leading up to the big day, Godwin—who's known for sharing skincare and makeup content on her YouTube channel, partnered with Colgate as a spokesperson for the brand's Optic White ComfortFit LED Kit, which she used to enhance her smile for the wedding and her honeymoon. (In fact, she loves the kit so much that she sent one to each of her bridesmaids as a prewedding gift, too.) "I have always had a teeth whitening routine for big events, so I knew for the wedding I wanted to ramp it up a bit. If my smile looks good, it's definitely going bring everything together, especially because my dress is white." she told us—adding, with a laugh, "There's a big leak!" She continued, "You want your teeth to match that shade, or at least be brighter just so that it doesn't look dull. This kit has been one of my biggest recs for any other brides, or if you're just wanting to enhance your beauty routine."
Beyond that, Godwin told us her prewedding beauty prep was all about elevating the basics. In addition to staying hydrated, getting good sleep, and keeping her skin moisturized, she also implemented a lash serum and lymphatic drainage techniques to enhance her prewedding glow.
