It’s Official! ‘The Golden Bachelor’ Couple Gerry Turner And Theresa Nist Tie The Knot In Live Wedding

Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist have officially tied the knot.

“The Golden Bachelor” couple Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist, who got engaged on the November finale officially got married on Thursday evening at La Quinta Resort and Club in La Quinta, Calif. The wedding was officiated by contestant Susan Noles.

“We have that same, deep love of family. We have so much love to share and now so many more people to share it with,” Theresa Nist, 70, said in her vows.

“I promise to be your calm in a storm, to comfort you when you’re sad, laugh with you when you’re happy and to stick with you throughout it all — but most of all, to have fun and to enjoy for the rest of the time we have left on this Earth … I love you with all of my heart and I cannot wait to be your wife.”

Tearing up, the 72-year-old Gerry Turner began his vows: “When I think of all the decisions we made here to be in this position tonight, I know the hand of God and the winds of fate have ordained this moment.

From our first sip of chocolate shake to the last taste of Costa Rican coffee, I have learned that you are the woman I can’t live without. I learned that you make me calm with the touch of your hand. I’ve learned you make me laugh with the easy comfort of a long-lost friend. I’ve learned you are a strong and independent woman — and your strength gives me joy. I’ve learned that you make me a better person, a better man because of your sensitivity and soft voice.”

“You are the love that came silently and without warning. You were authentic. Theresa, you have my heart, and I have yours,” Turner finished.
