DeAnna shares all of her wedding details! She’s working with a wedding planner and has a designer gown — plus she’s madly in love with Stephen!
Former Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas is super-excited to finally be walking down the aisle! After breaking off her short-lived engagement to Jesse Csincsak, DeAnna met the love of her life. She will be saying “I do” to Stephen Stagliano on Oct. 22 and she can’t wait to rock her cowboy boots under her Alfred Angelo Disney-princess inspired gown, she tells Star magazine.
“We are in full planning right now and can’t wait,” DeAnna shares. “I’ve hired wedding planner, Wendy Parker, who is handling everything.”
DeAnna has a location picked out, but is keeping it a secret. “We’ve chosen a wedding spot but haven’t told anyone where,” she says. “But we are not getting married in California.”
Her Alfred Angelo gown is also already ready for her slip on. “I just had my dress altered, so I’m ready,” DeAnna gushes.
And her cowboy boots are going to give DeAnna’s wedding attire the kick it needs. “Stephen didn’t believe I was really going to wear cowboy boots under my wedding dress,” she admits. “But I am wearing a pair of Justin Boots, and they are so cool. It’s part of my Southern heritage!”
Stephen’s twin brother Michael, who introduced the couple to each other and also competed on Jillian Harris‘ season of The Bachelorette, will be a major part of the ceremony. Michael “is going to play a song and sing while I walk down the aisle,” says DeAnna.
DeAnna’s so happy that Michael introduced her to Stephen. “When I met Michael, I knew it would never work out,” she confesses. “He introduced me to Stephen, and I know I chose the right brother.”
“Stephen says he feels lucky to be with one of the most eligible women ever, but he is the catch,” adds DeAnna. “I’m the lucky one. I’ve found a wonderful man.”
