Bachelorette Alum Ali Fedotowsky's Beachside Wedding Will Give You Major Inspiration
Get all of the details!
She may not have found love on her season of The Bachelorette, but Ali Fedotowsky is no longer a single. The popular franchise alum married radio-host Kevin Manno this past weekend, on March 3rd, in a stunning beachside wedding, Us Weekly reports. For you ladies planning a summer or beach destination wedding, look no further than this couple's romantic nuptials for inspiration.
Fedotowsky and Manno, who got engaged September 2015, were originally planning a destination wedding in Mexico. But with Fedotowsky's pregnancy and the spread of Zika, the pair cancelled and decided to marry in Los Angeles. The new venue, Terranea Resort, overlooks the Pacific Ocean-which is exactly where the ceremony was held. Under a gorgeous arch decorated with silk drapery, white roses and greenery, which matched the bride's loose bouquet of roses and ranunculus, the couple exchanged vows. Their 7-month-old daughter, Molly, served as an adorable flower girl.
As for the big-day fashion, the bride wore two dresses. The first, her ceremony gown, was a strapless lace Alvina Valenta design. For the reception, Fedotowsky changed into a Val Stefani spaghetti strapped A-line gown, since she "didn't want to feel sucked in," she told Us Weekly. The bridesmaids wore different colored dresses (grey and lavender) by Jenny Yoo, since Fedotowsky revealed she "didn't want them to match." Manno wore a traditional black tuxedo.
As a former Bachelorette, Fedotowsky had some famous friends attend the event: Kaley Cuoco, Haylie Duff, Lacey Chabert and fellow Bachelorette Andi Dorfman. In total, 90 guests were escorted to their seats with a calligraphed seating chart. For the reception, guests were seated banquet style. The tablescape was neutral, with pops of color from centerpieces filled with greenery and anemones. Guests enjoyed not one, but three different wedding cakes, since that was the one disagreement the couple had while planning. To end the wedding with a bang, the couple had a handmade s'mores bar-and who wouldn't love that!
"The day was more magical than I could have imagined," Fedotowsky said. "I just truly couldn't be happier." Congrats to the happy couple!
