Its that time! Desire Hartsock’s wedding photos are here!! We are so excited that we get to share the Bachelorette wedding photos with you all! For those of you who don’t follow along with ABC’s The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried met when she was chosen to be the Bachelorette. All of Bachelor Nation watched and fell in love with this sweet and sincere couple when the Bachelor journey ended with a proposal. Little did we know that we would be the ones hired to document their wedding day!
When we first met Chris and Des to discuss their up and coming wedding, we immediately fell in love with them. We were truly blown away by their love and affection for one another. The way that they looked at one another, finished each others sentences, laughed at each others jokes, you could tell that these two were perfect for one another and just too sweet for words.
Just to show you truly how sweet they are are, I wanted to share with you what Desiree and Chris had to say about us after their wedding day.
From Desiree: ” We are so grateful to have had Brandon Kidd and his wife, Kristin, as our wedding photographers, capturing all of those special moments with such grace and beauty. A good photographer is extremely important for wedding photos and the level of kindness, professionalism, comfort and attentiveness they showed was beyond our wildest hopes and made our wedding day so relaxed and easy. From getting ready in the morning to the dance party at the reception, not a moment was missed and I can’t share enough how incredibly awesome it was to work with a couple that is so easy going with such great direction and poise. You will not be disappointed by Brandon Kidd Photography!” on Desiree’s blog she went on to say “Brandon and Kristin Kidd are the most adorable people I have ever met! They were phenomenal to work with on such a special day. I want to get married all over again just so I can have them take more photos. haha. That’s how great they are!”
Desiree and Chris’s wedding was made up of an incredible list of vendors brought together by the brilliant Leila and the whole Be Inspired PR team. The talented designers of Sinclair and Moore Events complimented the natural surroundings of the Southern California coastline with neutral colors, greenery and pops of berry that perfectly matched the color of Des’ Donna Morgan bridesmaids gowns. Steve and his team did a fantastic job and were such a delight to work with. While it makes us sad that they are based in Seattle (too far for our liking), we will greatly look forward to the next opportunity we will get to work together! Thanks for being so awesome Steve!
Desiree Hartsock Wedding
Des and Chris’ wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, California and was followed by an intimate reception at the Redondo Beach Historic Library. Desiree Hartsock’s wedding went off without a hitch- as we knew it would, being run and coordinated by the uber talented Gianna of Chic Celebrations!
Desiree and Chris Reception Details
Chis and Des’ wedding reception included a surprise serenade that Chris had set up for their first dance to “Love and Affection” performed by Matt White. Beautiful pieces from Found Rentals were placed throughout the room, a table full of Sweet and Saucy desserts displayed, and a ONEHOPE Coffee bar as well as the DJ/former Bachelorette contestant Tasos Hernandez kept the guests dancing all night.
And of course the day wouldn’t be complete without the incredibly talented cinematography captured by Perryfield Films. We couldn’t have enjoyed shooting along side their team more. Be sure to check out Chris and Des’ amazing wedding video!
As for Des herself, she donned two different Maggie Sottero gowns throughout the day- each of them custom designed by the bride herself while Chris wore a solid dark grey suit from The Black Tux. He completed his look with a Bowyer & Fletcher tie and a pocket square that was made just for him by his new bride.
What an incredible and truly amazing day Des and Chris’s wedding was! We still feel like we are on cloud nine for being given the opportunity to work with such a remarkable couple as well as some of the industry’s finest talent! Thank you again to everyone who helped pull off this epic wedding!
