Now that the season finale is behind them, The Bachelorette’s DeAnna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak can finally step out together as a happy couple.
A happy, engaged couple.
The pair revealed some of the first details of their wedding planning (save the date, 5/9/09!) in a recent interview with People magazine.
“It’s like this weight off your chest,” Csincsak said night at the Dodgers game in Los Angeles, where DeAnna Pappas threw out the first pitch.
“[During The Bachelorette] she was able to go out and do all the press, but I was just locked in a house, losing my mind [and] wanting to tell all my friends that I was engaged to the hottest woman alive!”
The first time they ventured out together as a couple, DeAnna and Jesse dined at a restaurant where they were immediately recognized.
A star-struck waitress jokingly said they had ruined The Bachelorette's season finale for her since she hadn’t watched it yet.
“I would have never have thought random people would know me,” Jesse Csincsak said of getting recognized by strangers. “It’s a trip and it’s awesome and there’s no one I would rather share it with than [DeAnna Pappas.]”
Another public outing came Tuesday when the couple attended a taping of MTV’s Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew.
The couple has not jumped into planning out the entire wedding just yet but do have a few specifics in mind:
- She wants a brown theme
- He wants a “huge” cheesecake (or ‘groom’s cake,’)
- The men will wear suits instead of tuxedos.
- Contestants on this season’s The Bachelorette, as well as Pappas’ friends from the 11th season of The Bachelor, will be invited as guests!
Two other people who will probably be in attendance: Trista and Ryan Sutter. “They’re great friends,” Jesse Csincsak said about the former Bachelorette stars, who live 20 minutes down the road from him in Breckenridge, Colo.
Trista and Ryan have an adorable baby son, Max. As for starting a family on their own, “We want to have kids before we’re 30,” Jesse Csincsak, “but we’re working on getting married ... then we’ll work on the bambinos!”
