Back in October 2012, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici visited her hometown of Seattle for their The Bachelor Season 17 Hometown Date. At the time, Sean still had three other ladies vying for his heart, but Catherine won in the end.

Now the pair lives in Los Angeles and is planning their wedding and life together. With the one-year anniversary of their first date coming up sooner than we can believe — filming on their season began on September 24, 2012 — Sean is sharing a little throwback pic of the first time they made their way to the Emerald City.

While on their date, before Sean met his future in-laws, they hit up the Pike Place Market for a little fish-throwing, some pictures with the famous pig, and a stop by the photobooth. And although the owner of their photobooth leaked some adorable shots of the pair wearing clown noses and goofing off, we’re pretty sure we haven’t seen these before.


Sean posted four frames of their sesh on Instagram on August 29, captioning itPic from the hometown date with this weirdo.@catherinegiudici #tbt.”

Although we were hoping they would tie the knot sooner than later, it now looks like they’re aiming for some time in 2014. Will they beat Sean’s ex Desiree Hartsock and her The Bachelorette Season 9 fiancé Chris Siegfried down the aisle? The couple has expressed a desire to get married in June 2014.

Maybe ABC could save some money doing a double televised wedding in Seattle — where Chris and Des are currently shacking up? Nah, there’s not enough boxed wine in the world to get us through that many tears...
