By Reality TV World staff, 12/08/2003
It's official, there were no last-minute cold feet, no leaving their one million dollar wedding dowry at the altar -- Bachelorette couple Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter tied the knot this weekend.
Solters & Digney, the public relations firm for the Lodge in Rancho Mirage, the Palm Springs, California resort where the couple married, confirmed the wedding ceremony in a press conference on Sunday. The hotel reopened Sunday after being closed to the public for four days to accommodate the large-scale production.
The couple was treated to a ceremony under the hotelís famed gazebo overlooking the Coachella Valley, a glamorous reception in the stately hotel ballroom and an overnight stay in a newly redecorated honeymoon suite, named in honor of local resident, former President Gerald R. Ford.
The bride's gown was designed by Badgley Mischka, while Kenneth Cole made the men's tuxedos. Additionally 30,000 roses were imported from Ecuador for the grandiose event, which is suspected to have cost ABC well over another million dollars to produce.
