Still so happy together! Twelve months after their January 2014 wedding, former Bachelor Sean Lowe and wife Catherine Giudici are still in the honeymoon phase of their marriage. To celebrate their upcoming one-year anniversary on Monday, Jan. 26, they set off on a romantic getaway to beautiful Santa Barbara, Calif.
Both Lowe, 31, and his bride, 28, have been sharing pictures from their trip via Twitter and Instagram. On Wednesday, Jan. 21, Giudici posted a photo of her suitcase, which contained at least two pairs of fancy heels. "Pack it up, pack it in, let me begin," she captioned the shot, adding a "#oneyear" hashtag.
One day later, she Instagrammed a pic of them in a car. "Let the anniversary adventure begin!" she wrote.
Subsequent photos show her goofing off on the beach at the Four Seasons Resort – The Biltmore Santa Barbara, and enjoying a picturesque sunset at the hotel's Bella Vista restaurant.
"Romantic Evening No. 1," she captioned the sunset shot.
Lowe, meanwhile, posted a pic of the two by the water, sunlight streaming onto their smiling faces. "1 year down, 73 to go," he wrote alongside the sweet snap.
As fans already know, the lovebirds met on season 17 of The Bachelor, after Lowe was eliminated by Emily Maynard from season eight of The Bachelorette. He proposed to Seattle native Giudici on the March 11, 2013 finale, choosing her over runner-up Lindsay Yenter. They wed in a live TV special on Jan. 26 of last year.
Earlier this week, the Dancing With the Stars alum reflected on his marriage in a post on his Patheos blog, sharing 10 things he'd learned since his wedding. No. 4 on the list? "Life is better when you can share it with someone else," he wrote. "This may seem cliche but it's true. Sharing life with Catherine has made my life seem fuller."
