We started week four with Sean and Catherine’s wedding. I love this part of The Bachelor, mostly because it doesn’t happen that often. I love watching the event come together and I am just a sucker for romance and weddings. This wedding was a little different from all of the other ones because it was live, something they’ve never done before.
The wedding was held at The Four Seasons Biltmore Resort in Santa Barbara.
The backdrop, set design and flowers were so beautiful!
I didn’t really get the whole “Grown Sexy” theme. I would have described it more as feminine and elegant, but to each their own. The ceremony was incredible, Sean’s dad was the perfect officiant. I give props to everyone for saying their own vows, I don’t think I could have done that, I was so emotional on my wedding day, so I have to respect anyone that can get the words out.

Catherine wore a strapless lace fit-and-flare gown from Monique Lhuiller’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Her 12 bridesmaids also wore pink dresses from Monique Lhuillier. Sean wore a tuxedo from Dolce & Gabbana:
The bridesmaids wore heels from Sole Society. I did some research and found that they got to pick from a few different Sole Society heels, the Kella, Dar, Kasha or Kelly designs from Sole Society. My favorites are the sold-out Kella cap toe pump. I found a similar pair from Victoria’s Secret ($39.99):
Catherine received a pair of Swarovski crystal-encrusted custom flats by Yosi Samra for the reception. These Footzyfolds Crystal Ballet Flats ($115) from QVC are similar. You could also get the plain bronze crackled Yosi Samra flats for $66:
The bridesmaids also received monogrammed LeSportsac totes filled with lots of goodies including Minimergency kits from Pinch Provisions ($16), custom created, white Bri Seeley scarves, mini boom boxes from Kinivo (&18.99), Modify watches ($45), Bel Fiore Cupcake Frosting Hair Ties ($10) , Joey New York Quick Result Beauty Kit ($36) and Kixies thigh highs.
The bride used the Je T’AIME Heart Card from Sugar Paper Stationary ($6) to write thank you notes to all of the bridesmaids:
On November 13th, Catherine posted on Twitter that she was getting her bridesmaids The Stella & Dot Together Forever Necklace ($59). This necklace totally reminds of the Girl Scouts Make New Friends song, where it says “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other’s gold.” This is such a perfect gift for bridesmaids!
