On January 26, 2014, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici will get married in the most anticipated wedding in The Bachelor’s history. We know it will be beautiful and fun, a big party with a traditional ceremony, and now we know where it’s going to be!

A source close to production tells Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that the ceremony will happen in Santa Barbara, California! “We aren’t confirmed yet on where the exact location for the wedding will be, but it’s 100% in Santa Barbara,” the source tells Wetpaint.

What a perfect place for Sean and Catherine to get married! With incredible ocean views, a dreamy breeze off the water, and just enough of a summer vibe to fit their laidback relationship, we don’t think there’s any better spot for the Season 17 couple to say “I do.”


Where should it be? Well our vote is the Bacara Resort & Spa. First of all, the place has a Bachelor Mansion-esque driveway — come on, it’s called the “Arrival Courtyard” for godsakes! Plus, there are sweeping staircases, majestic grounds, and it looks amazing with soft lighting: Essentially, it’s where Rose Ceremonies go to learn how to be the most dramatic and romantic ever.

If the Bacara isn’t available (as if), perhaps SeanCat should tie things up at the Casa del Herrero in Montecito. The 1920s home and gardens are rich with architectural beauty and years of interesting stories, but eclectic and wild enough to appeal to the couple’s quirky sides.

If the weather outside is frightful (again, yeah right), they could consider the Old Mission Santa Barbara. The religious couple has said they want a traditional ceremony, and getting married at a 228-year-old church could be just the thing to fulfill that need.
