“Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe opens up about her fiancé, her BFF, and how to celebrate Galentine’s Day

You may have fallen in love with her as the spicy Canadian Bachelor contestant who told Chris Soules, a farmer by trade, that he could “plow the f*** out of [her] field any day.” Or perhaps she stole your heart as the Bachelorette who rejected Nick Viall, ABC’s current Bachelor bro. But after speaking to Bachelorette Season 11 star Kaitlyn Bristowe about her real-life relationship with her TV love, Shawn Booth, and the female friends who shaped her life, we love her more than ever.

We had a chance to sit down with Kaitlyn at an intimate Galentine’s Day event hosted recently by Wedding Paper Divas and celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss. Below, discover the super sweet way Kaitlyn and her friends celebrate Galentine’s Day (it’s today!) and learn what surprised her most about getting to know Shawn after the ~final rose.~
