Santa Barbara, California
“The Bachelor” star Sean Lowe married Catherine Giudici on January 26, 2014 at the The Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore in Santa Barbara, CA.
Guests at the “grown sexy” themed wedding included Trista and Ryan Sutter, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum, Jason and Molly Mesnick, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried and Ali Fedotowsky.
The live televised wedding took place just after dark on the property’s Monte Vista Lawn.
Celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss transformed the space into an outdoor living room with chandeliers in the trees and eclectic furniture for guests to sit. The wedding featured a gold and neutral color palette, reminding the couple of their time in Thailand where they got engaged.
The vows took place under an altar covered with thousands of white roses by Mark’s Garden.
Catherine wore Monique Lhuillier’s Perfection, a strapless lace fit to flare gown.
The bridesmaids, including Giudici’s BFF from “The Bachelor,” Lesley Murphy, wore blush colored gowns with gold accents designed by Monique Lhuillier.
The wedding was officiated by the groom’s father, Jay. The couple recited personal vows and exchanged rose gold wedding bands by Neil Lane. “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.
The reception took place inside a ballroom where long tables were lined with pink roses.
As the couple were introduced for the first time as husband and wife, R. Kelly’s “Bump and Grind” was played. They then shared their first dance to Randy Rogers’ “One Woman.”
The dinner menu included lemon verbena scallops, grilled bone in rip eye chop and vegetable lasagna.
For dessert, Charm City Cakes created a 5-tier lemon curd wedding cake complete with a bride & groom sugar sculpted topper. The groom’s cake featured replicas of Sean’s dogs, Lola and Ellie.
Guests left at the end of the night with an elephant cookie cutter and fresh chocolate chip cookies.
The couple spent their wedding night at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara and honeymooned in Bora Bora.
