Thank goodness for DVR.
There were tears – the groom's! – when The Bachelor's Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici tied the knot in a romantic ceremony on Sunday.
Lowe's father Jay officiated the ceremony and called their romance "an epic fairytale on display for the whole world to see."
In fact, he did most of the talking at the altar but Sean and Catherine said the most important words: "I do."
The nuptials – watched by millions on a live TV special on ABC – were a happy ending for the couple who met on the reality show and got engaged in Thailand in November of 2012.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something ... pooch?
Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's Sunday wedding has officially gone to the dogs.
Well, at least their groom's cake, which will honor the Bachelor star's two canine pals, a boxer named Lola and a chocolate lab named Ellie, ABC News reports.
While their main wedding cake will be traditional, Lowe's groom's cake, a tradition at many Southern weddings, will be an exact replica of his two best friends, created by Charm City Cakes of Los Angeles.
"Our dogs are so important to us," Lowe, 30, said. "They're the loves of my life."

It was a little hard to start writing after all that has happened during the past few days. I thank you for coming and reading my blog ...
My apology was not enough, so I guess time and my actions will let people know who I really am and my thoughts about how much I respect gay people.
On the show, at least, this was my favorite week.
Juan Pablo Galavis has issued an apology following his commentary about the idea of a gay Bachelor.
At a TCAs party on Friday, Galavis said that a gay version of The Bachelor would be a bad example for children.
"I respect [gay people], but honestly I don't think it's a good example for kids to watch that on TV," Galavis – a single dad to 4-year-old daughter Camila – told Sean Daly from The TV Page.
On Saturday, he issued a statement on his Facebook page to clarify the remarks.

I couldn't wait for this week to begin, because in all my time on The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, I had never been on a one-on-one date. Finally, the master of group dates got to have two one-on-one dates this week.
For Clare's date, we decided to create a winter wonderland, complete with snow, ice skating and sledding, even though we were in sunny Los Angeles. Before taking Clare, I decided to spend some time and surprise Camila. She hadn't seen snow since she was 10 months old, so I wanted to see her face during this experience. She loved it, and watching Camila see the snow and ice skate is something I won't forget.
I knew the winter wonderland was going to be a shock to Clare, but I love surprising people. When I'm in a relationship, I always find ways to surprise my girlfriend. Being El Bachelor, I get to surprise all these women, and this one with Clare I really believed was a good one. In the car ride over, she kept asking me a million times what we were doing, and she even got a little nauseous. I remember when I carried her on my back, and as soon as I stepped on the snow she had an idea of what it was, but it wasn't until I took the blindfold off that she was certain. Seeing her that happy and excited definitely made me smile.
