This gorgeous 27-year-old Filipina first graced television screens on the 2013 season of The Bachelor.
The American reality television dating game show, which premiered back in 2002, received backlash over the years for its predominantly white cast. To this day, the show remains primarily white, but it has shown effort to add some diversity.
In season 17, Bachelor Sean Lowe found himself facing one of the most ethnically diverse group of girls that the show has seen yet. Among the women who stood out to us, and to Sean apparently, was Catherine Giudici.
The graphic designer eventually won Lowe’s heart, but not before bringing him home and teaching him a thing or two about the Filipino culture. As it turns out, Giudici’s mother is a trustee of the Filipino American National Historical Society so Giudici is no stranger to her roots. In fact, her full name (Catherine Ligaya Mejia Giudici) contains the word “happiness” in Tagalog. Catherine Giudici has even been found tweeting about her Filipino culture.
After waiting patiently for nearly a year, we finally get to see the adorable couple tie the knot! The wedding will be held January 26 at the Four Seasons Resort—The Biltmore Santa Barbara. Lucky for us, every detail of the wedding will be telecast live on ABC.
Their wedding planner Mindy Weiss says, “”Sean and Catherine have a very grown-up style right now. They want something sexy and romantic. They use certain words to kind of guide me with their vision.”
And if you thought the couple couldn’t get any cuter, let’s not forget that they have an absolutely adorable Save The Date.
Although the couple will be in front of camera’s once again for their lavish wedding, they swear they aren’t nervous because of all the nationwide attention. Instead, they’re excited that they finally get to start their life together.
