Congratulations are in order for former star of The Bachelor Sean Lowe and his choice lady Catherine Giudici. As promised, the happy couple officially tied the knot on national television ala Kim Kardashian. Famewhoring, a cash grab or just taking an opportunity? It doesn’t matter how you look at it, we didn’t think that they would actually take the plunge on TV. Did you? People has the scoop:
Giudici wore a Monique Lhuillier gown. “It’s gorgeous,” she told GMA’s Lara Spencer. “I’ve always felt like a cute girl, trying to be fun and playful, but this time I’m really coming out as a woman and I want to wear something very form-fitting and sexy.” Her hair was styled by Jose Eber, who created two different looks – one for the ceremony and one for the reception.
“The first time that I saw you, you were like a light to my bug. I had to find you. You mesmerize me with how brightly you shine,” Catherine told Sean at the altar. “Sometimes I feel like I’m going to explode by how much I love you … I’m completely consumed by you … I promise to love you after my heart bursts … You are my dream and my reality.”
“From the moment I met you I wanted more. You had me hooked from the beginning and I didn’t want to let you go,” Sean then said. “We met in the strangest way possible … I know that we met on The Bachelor so that I could fall in love with my best friend … Every day I am encouraged by your love and your selflessness … I’m going to love you for eternity.”
Neil Lane, who designed Guidici’s 3.15-carat platinum-and-diamond engagement ring, also designed the couple’s wedding bands.
In addition to the couple’s family and friends, there were several familiar faces from the Bachelor and Bachelorette worlds, including Trista and Ryan Sutter, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum, Jason and Molly Mesnick, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried, Juan Pablo Galavis, Arie Luyendyk, Jef Holm, John Wolfner, Charlie Grogan and Daniella McBride.
Of course the rings were Neil Lane, but did they really have to invite all of the past show contestants? It’s what you have to do when you’re on someone else’s dime, right? Did you watch the ceremony?
