The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock said “I do” to Chris Siegfried in California yesterday, making it official with her final rose recipient from 2013!
According to her rep, Desiree Hartsock wed Chris in Palos Verdes, Calif., following an 18-month engagement to the man she picked on the ABC reality hit.
They currently live together in Seattle, where Des relocated to be with the former baseball player turned mortgage banker after they got engaged.
Chris Tweeted the weekend before last, “So excited for the big day! @DesHartsock and I can’t wait to share with everyone! #countdown #9days #hopingforsun.”
Fortunately for a wedding held in Southern California, that’s a pretty safe bet … as is the fact that Desiree would look stunning walking down the aisle.
A bridal stylist by trade, “once Chris and I got engaged we started talking about the wedding right away, probably before the finale even aired,” she said.
“We talked about what we would want and pieced together both of our ideas,” but in the end, “I’m most excited to walk down the aisle and see Chris.”
“And then of course to get down on the dance floor with him!”
Desiree and Chris faced many doubters early on after he appeared to be her distant second choice being Brooks Forester for much if not all of her season.
Clearly, they proved the critics wrong and then some.
The wedding comes days after The Bachelorette couple from 2014, Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray broke up after being engaged for just six months.
After yesterday, Desiree officially joins Trista Sutter and Ashley Hebert in the exclusive club of Bachelorette stars to marry their final rose recipients.
On The Bachelor side, Sean Lowe and Jason Mesnick recently wed their winners as well, so the franchise has been on a (relative) romantic tear lately.
Congratulations, Desiree and Chris!
