“Sean and Catherine’s Wedding” (Aired: January 26, 2014 – LIVE)
Over a year after proposing to Giudici on his season of The Bachelor, Sean Lowe and his fiancée were finally married on January 26, 2014, in a live ceremony performed by Lowe’s father at the Four Seasons Resort Biltmore in Santa Barbara. Many of the Bachelor alumni were in attendance at the wedding, such as The Bachelorettes married couples Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum, Trista and Ryan Sutter, DeAnna and Stephen Stagliano, The Bachelors Jason and Molly Mesnick as well as the previous season’s Bachelorette pair, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried, who have since also gotten married.
The Lowes appeared on the first season finale of Bachelor in Paradise to speak to the final couples and assess the chances that their relationships would succeed.
Other television appearances
Giudici was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with her fiance, Sean Lowe, just before their wedding. Kimmel told them that he thought they were lying about waiting until marriage, so he hooked them up to a polygraph test to find out the truth. The couple gladly agreed and the lie detector proved that they were truly waiting.
The Lowes were featured in Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars as they worked through their marital issues.
The Lowes also made an appearance on season 3 of Billion Dollar Buyer where they won a bid to sell products in their stationery line, LoweCo.
On July 2, 2016, the Lowes had their first child, son Samuel Thomas Lowe. In November 2017, the couple announced that they were expecting their second son. On May 18, 2018 their son was born. The couple named him Isaiah Hendrix Lowe.[6
