Sure, there were several million people watching their wedding on live TV. But as former Bachelor Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici got ready to say their vows, “My eyes were fixed on Sean,” says Catherine, 27, who took her new husband’s last name. “[The night] was about us, about starting the next chapter of our lives.” And the self-proclaimed “goofball” couple – who famously vowed to save sex for their wedding night – didn’t let staid matrimonial traditions get in the way of a good party. From their lighthearted reception entrance (fittingly, it was R. Kelly’s “Bump and Grind”) to the playful groom’s cake – an ode to his dogs – the pair bucked formality for fun. “It was more than I even imagined,” says Sean, 30. As for their future? “I just hope for happiness, family, love and a lot of laughter.”
