Bachelorette Star Ali Fedotowsky’s First Wedding Day Snaps Are Here to Make You Swoon
Ali Fedotowsky is a “Bachelorette” no more! The reality show alum-turned-blogger and television host tied the knot with her longtime sweetheart, Kevin Manno (who made her smoothies every day of her pregnancy) yesterday at the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, California.
The beachside ceremony gathered together roughly 85-90 of the couple’s closest friends (including Kaley Cuoco, Haylie Duff, Andi Dorfman, and Mean Girls’ Lacey Chabert) and family. Manno and Fedotowsky, who share daughter Molly Sullivan together, have been dating since 2013. They were originally due to wed in Mexico, but cancelled the event after reports of Zika became a concern for traveling guests.
Instead, they gathered stateside for Fedotowsky (now Manno)’s walk down the aisle in a breathtaking Alina Valenta gown to the Lumineers’ “Ho Hey.” The event included appearances from the family dog, Owen, and baby Molly as well: The seven-month-old was the picture-perfect flower girl (pulled in a vintage wagon, natch).

Photographer Brandon Kidd also gave us a sneak peek at the couple’s wedding shots, which will be exclusively revealed in the March 8 issue of US Weekly.
As we eagerly wait to see the rest of beautiful snaps, Manno is no doubt celebrating her new relationship status, telling the magazine, “Kevin is Kevin Manno. Molly is Molly Manno. Owen, our dog, is Owen Manno. I wanted to be Ali Manno. It’s time!”
