Palos Verdes, California
Former “Bachelorette” Desiree Hartsock married Chris Siegried at Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verdes, California on January 18, 2015.
The wedding took place in front of 130 guests including Ali Fedotowsky, Jason Mesnick and Molly Mesnick.
The bride wore a fit-and-flare ivory lace wedding gown over blush tulle, which she co-designed with Maggie Sottero. She carried a bouquet of ranunculus, peonies, and vines. Her bridesmaids wore cranberry silk chiffon Donna Morgan dresses.
The groom looked dapper in a charcoal tux by Black Tux and a Bowyer & Fletcher tie.
The couple exchanged rose gold wedding bands by Neil Lane during the 15 minute ceremony overlooking the ocean.
A reception followed at the Redondo Beach Historic Library. The bride changed into a silver-beaded chiffon sheath dress which she also designed.
The room was decorated with long wooden tables and centerpieces included vintage books, candles and floral arrangements of anemones and peonies.
The couple shared their first dance to “Love and Affection” by Matt White. The DJ for the evening was Tasos Hernandez from “The Bachelorette.”
The dinner menu included stuffed chicken and mushroom risotto. A dessert table, by Sweet and Saucy Shop, consisted of macarons, brownies, mini apple pies, and a wedding cake with layers of salted caramel and Oreo cake.
Favor bags were filled with the couple’s favorite candy, saltwater taffy.
Desiree and Chris honeymooned in Hawaii on the islands of Oahu and Kauai.
