Sydney Hightower Finally Marries Fred Warner — Inside Their Intimate Wedding
Bachelor Nation's Sydney Hightower is finally married!
The Bachelor alum married Fred Warner a year after their engagement. Their wedding was something they planned a lot about and had been waiting to turn into a reality.
Hightower and Warner's special day wasn't just another wedding, though. There were a few special, meticulously planned details that the couple loves.
Inside Sydney Hightower’s Wedding with Fred Warner
Hightower and Warner tied the knot on June 25, 2022. Hightower, or Mrs. Warner, took to Instagram to announce the special day and a beautiful picture.
"Mr. & Mrs. Warner," she wrote in the caption, concluding it with a mention of their wedding date, "6.25.22."
Warner, too, did the same but had a few more pictures to share. He just wrote "Mrs. Warner" in the caption.
Hightower wore a form-fitting custom white Susie Bridals gown, whereas Warner wore a custom Giorgio Armani black suit.
Their wedding was held at a chapel in Vista, California. The most special part of the wedding might be the chapel they got to say their vows in.
The chapel, as Hightower put it to E! News, "was flown over from France." It was an "extremely romantic" and "very secluded and private" chapel.
Further, the chapel had been reconstructed using original materials from France, something that rang true to both of them and their experiences in life. "I think that's just kind of who we are as people. So, there was no question that had to be there," the star told E! News.
Another noticeable detail at the wedding was the flower choice — "romantic baby breath orchids and white roses."

Initially, the couple had planned to get married in Europe. However, with Warner's tight schedule as an NFL player, taking too many days off wasn't possible.
Two things follow the wedding — the reception and the honeymoon. For the former, they held a simple, candlelit reception. And for the latter, they planned on flying straight to Tahiti.
A select group of people attended their "traditional ceremony," which had been "a long time coming." Warner's younger brother, Troy Warner, and Hightower's Bachelor castmates Tammy Ky Ly, Jasmine Nguyen, Natasha Parker, Victoria Paul, etc, were present at the ceremony.
Her fellow Bachelor contestant, Kiarra Norman, was the maid of honor.
Sydney Hightower and Fred Warner’s Relationship Timeline
Hightower and Warner first met the night she filmed 'Women Tell All,' an episode from Peter Weber's season of The Bachelor in 2019. They started dating soon after and the COVID shutdowns only helped bring them closer.
It was the show that brought them together. Warner didn't watch the show at first, but after his brother and his wife insisted, he watched. They urged him to especially watch Hightower as they thought she was everything he wanted in a woman.
Further, they also asked him to find her on social media. So he did.
On May 15, 2021, the couple got engaged, and by October, they had most of their wedding details finalized, including the date and the venue. She had also chosen her wedding dress.
He let her have the driving seat with wedding planning and was fine with her choices. And, as we now know, all their plans worked out perfectly.
They were also ready for babies by the time their wedding rolled on. The two were ready to be parents, but she needed a bit of time.
