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.
