Preparations Continue for ‘Bachelor’ Wedding in Santa Barbara

Sean Lowe will marry Catherine Giudici in a live televised show from the Four Seasons Biltmore

Preparations were continuing Friday for the latest celebrity wedding in Santa Barbara — this one televised live to millions of viewers.

Sean Lowe, from the 2012 season of the ABC's The Bachelor reality show, will wed the woman who captured his heart on the show, Catherine Giudici, on Sunday at the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore.

The couple became engaged in Thailand during the finale of the popular show's 17th season.
Television satellite and production trucks crowded the grounds of the posh beach-side hotel late this week, as crews prepared for the televised nuptials, which will be broadcast live from 8 to 10 p.m. on the East Coast.

Portions of the show are being pre-recorded, but the ceremony itself is expected to be live, according to ABC officials.

Viewers in Santa Barbara and on the West Coast will see a recorded version of the show. It will be on KEYT Channel 3 locally.

Tourism officials have said they believe the show will shine a very positive spotlight on Santa Barbara as a wedding and vacation spot.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
