Chris Harrison isn’t just a host- he also officiates weddings!
Producers Cassie Lambert and Pete Scalettar met while working on Matt Grant’s season of The Bachelor in 2008. The two tied the knot in Malibu on Saturday with host Chris Harrison as officiator! Says Harrison:
“It might be a new job for me,” Harrison said of getting ordained to officiate the couple’s wedding. “They asked me in Prague this season [of The Bachelorette] when we were there if I would do it for them. … I love them to death and I’ve seen then grow as a couple and I love them as a couple and as individuals. I’m taking [officiating] very seriously…we went over everything for the ceremony and I’m really honored. I’m honored they would ask and I’m honored they would allow me to be such a huge part of their day.”
Neil Lane, who has done the rings for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette proposals, designed their engagement and wedding rings, and newest Bachelorette Emily Maynard was in attendance! Talk about a star-studded wedding…a reality star-studded wedding! And that’s not where it stops. Says People:
The guest list looked like a who’s who of Bachelor couples, that included Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik, newlyweds DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano as well as Rosenbaum and Hebert and Maynard and Holm (who, according to an eyewitness, were constantly whispering to each other and being affectionate during the ceremony). Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, who split with Roberto Martinez last year, also attended.
Talk about life reflecting art…er, television!
