Last night's Bachelor wedding between Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici was more than just a chance for us to catch up with the couple, it was a chance for seasons of contestants to meet up with each other. Affectionately called the Bachelor Family, previous Bachelors and Bachelorettes have bonded over their experiences on the show, often becoming close friends. Or so it appears. Perhaps it's just a well-constructed ABC scheme but I'm going to pretend they really just all like hanging out. Notable attendees included Ashley and JP Rosenbaum who were married on national television two years ago. Arie Luyendyk and Jef Holm who were contestants with Sean also showed up, and even Lesley Murphy who once vied for Sean's attention with Catherine was there and a bridesmaid no less. Many other fan favorites were attendance for the couple's nuptials, and they were more than happy to weigh in online about what they thought of the newly married duo and give us a peek into the reception. Luyendyk quipped that it was going to be a short reception because he didn't think the couple could keep their hands off each other much longer. "First dance... I can feel the tension. I'm thinking it's going to be an early night for these two," he tweeted.
He also showed off a couple of pictures of the couple's regular cake and their dog cake (of course they had a dog cake, this quirky couple.)
Bridesmaid Lesley took to Instagram to show off a photo of some sweet party favors:
Trista Sutter, one half of the Bachelor's longest lasting marriage took a more sentimental tone with her tweets, sharing a photo of the couple's ceremony and writing:
But the Bachelor Family wasn't just there for the wedding (of course not) they were there to hang out and party with each other which they documented thoroughly on social media.
