Desiree Hartsock, Chris Siegfried, Wedding, Us Weekly

Desiree Hartsock has never looked more beautiful!

The Bachelorette star, 28, married mortgage banker Chris Siegfried, 29, in Palos Verdes, Calif., Jan. 18.  Though she's been a bridal stylist and designer for eight years, Hartsock says it "was difficult" to design just one look for her dream wedding. For the vows, the ABC reality star created a fit and flare dress that featured ivory lace over blush tulle. For the reception, Hartsock selected a silver beaded chiffon sheath. The blushing bride wore Badgley Mischka strappy heels and jewelry from her line, Desiree for KV Bijou.

"The first look was dramatic," Hartsock explains in Us Weekly's Feb. 2 issue, on newsstands Friday. "I wanted them to be unique. It came down to imagining what I would look like when I saw Chris."

Hartstock's bridesmaids (including Bachelor alum Danielle McBride) wore Donna Morgan dresses. Many other stars from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette attended the couple's nuptials, including E!'s Ali Fedotowsky, plus Brooks Forester, Michael Garofola, Jason Mesnick, Molly Mesnick and Zak Waddell.

The two exchanged rose-gold bands from Neil Lane; Siegfried says they agreed "to keep things classy and vintage." When he proposed in May 2013, he gave his bride-to-be a 4-carat Neil Lane diamond ring.

After the wedding, guests were shuttled to the nearby Redondo Beach Historic Library for the reception.

The couple's first dance was to Matt White's "Love and Affection"—and to Hartsock's surprise, he sang it live! "I contacted Matt on Twitter," Siegfried explains. "I'm patting myself on the back for that one."

"It was special," Hartsock says of the gesture. "He nailed it!"

DJ Tasos Hernandez, a fellow series alum, played hits like "Cyclone" and "Uptown Funk."

What's next for the newlyweds?

"I want three of four kids," Hartsock says. "Chris is like, 'Just wait till you have one.'"
