Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried from The Bachelorette married last month, and fans are now receiving even more behind-the-scenes details from the couple’s special day. On Thursday, Desiree went to her own blog to share new photos and details about her wedding to Chris Siegfried.
Fans did not get to see Desiree and Chris marry on ABC like Sean Lowe and Catherine Guidici or Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum, but Desiree and Chris have made sure that they shared many details about their wedding day.
Both Desiree and Chris are active on social media, and they have both shared photos from the wedding ceremony. On Thursday, Chris shared a photo of the couple standing at the altar during their ceremony. He captioned the photo by saying, “Oh hey remember that one time @deshartsock and I got married? #NeverLookingBack.”
Desiree Hartsock spent a lot of time on her wedding dress, and she shared a short video to her Instagram on Thursday that gave fans an up-close look at the design. She even admitted that she might want to wear her dress around the house.
In her blog, Desiree shared more about the wedding ceremony and the moments that led up to it. She also revealed why she and Chris chose the location they did for the wedding.
“I first discovered Wayfarer’s Chapel while working in Los Angeles, but not until Chris and I came to visit did we instantly know this is where we wanted to get married. The glass chapel creates an intimate setting that breathes life and nature into it with an unspoken ease. The beautiful grounds and incredible architecture along with the backdrop of the ocean pulled at my bohemian heart strings, leaving Chris confident in our choice.”
Desiree revealed that her day began with friends and preparations for the big moment, but she also admitted that her nerves began to kick in once it was time for her to walk down the aisle with her father. She said in her blog that it was a special moment for both of them because she is his only daughter, but “nothing else mattered” once she saw Chris standing at the altar with his “adorable grin.”
Desiree shared more about how she felt on her wedding day.
“I was definitely relaxed, ready, organized and excited, but nothing could prepare me for the incredible amount of joy I felt as a bride on that special day. The excitement leading up to the moment I saw Chris to the warm embraces from friends and family are memories that will last a lifetime. It is the only day that everyone you love is in one place celebrating your love! That in itself is incredible. The shared moments throughout the day were quite spectacular with monumental significance that danced around like a beautiful aroma.”
Desiree shared more photos and details about the jewelry she wore during her day in another blog shared by the KV Bijou site.
After the wedding, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried headed to Hawaii for their honeymoon. It was not long after the wedding that Desiree marked her new married status by changing her name to Desiree Siegfried on her Twitter account.

From the beginning, Desiree and Chris have shown their happiness on social media. They have not hidden much about their relationship from their fans. Desiree Hartsock has often said that she was marrying her best friend, and this couple might end up being one that stands the test of time.
