Who Is Kim Hildalgo? New Details On 'Pretty Little Liars' Star Brant Daugherty's Wife And Their Wedding

Meeting Mr. or Ms. Right is never easy. Sure, sure we all know all the things that people say to singles: It happens when you aren't looking, you've got to love yourself first, go on a lot of bad first dates. While this advice is all super true, it's not exactly a roadmap, and that's because finding love is hard! Even celebs these days have a hard time meeting their soulmate. 

Like so many of us, Brant Daughtery and his now-bride Kim Hidalgo were feeling super unlucky in love. Then they both made a decision that you've probably made yourself, and now they are happily married. Find out what brought them together and you'll see that fame doesn't always guarantee happy endings. Who is Kim Hidlago?

1. How They Met

The name Brant Daugherty might not mean anything to you, but I'm pretty sure you've heard of the show that helped him become an almost overnight sucess. For years, Brant starred on the CW's hit drama, Pretty Little Liars, playing the handsome but mysterious Noel Kahn. His new bride Kim Hidalgo is a successful actress in her own right, known for her role in the film How To Save A Life

You would think given both of their impressive resumes that chances are they met each other at some fancy premeire event, or perhaps during the audition process for another big TV hit, but the truth is they met like so many other people out there do today: on a dating app! Three years ago they laid their eyes on each other's profiles and the rest, as they say, is history!

2. Guest List 

As you might imagine, this was a wedding with a pretty tremendous guest list, and that's before you even factor in all of the famous faces who were included in the bridal party. Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Samantha Droke, along with Kim and Brant's own sisters, were all in bridesmaids and Kim didn't make them wear frumpy clothes, either. They shone in stunning gray gowns. 

“I was a bridesmaid in Ashley [Tisdale]’s wedding. Shelley [Buckner] and Vanessa [Hudgens] were bridesmaids in her wedding,” says Hidalgo, who chose grey beaded Adrianna Papell dresses for her bridal party. “I was a bridesmaid in Samantha [Droke]’s wedding with Shelley and Ashley. We’re all a close-knit group of girlfriends," shared Kim. Not to outshone, Brant made sure he had seven groomsman to Kim's 10 bridesmaids.

3. Surprises

While the couple worked together with professionals to plan their weddings, there were still some surprises that even they didn't expect. The biggest one to take their breath away was when it came time for the couple to share the vows that they wrote for each other. It became clear pretty quickly that they wrote nearly identical vows! More proof their love was meant to be. 

Even though the couple was tickled pink to discover this surprise, that didn't meant they didn't have some other surprises of their own cooked up for their guests. Like the facts that their dogs Knuckles and Lola were all dressed up and walked down the aisle together as the ring bearers! This couples' love for their dogs is just another thing they bond over.

4. Ashley Tisdale's Role

Five years ago when Ashley Tisdale tied the knot, Kim Hidalgo was one of her bridesmaids and Ashley couldn't wait to return the favor when the time came for her friend to walk down the aisle. In fact, Ashley got involved even earlier, working with Brant to help plan the surprise proposal which took place on a trip the couple took to Amsterdam. 

"Ashley took me out for dinner the night before we left [for Europe], and I said, ‘You know, I have this feeling,’ and she said, ‘Kim, I talked to him...I don’t think it’s going to happen for a while. I just don’t want you to get your hopes up and be disappointed.’ She left and called Brant and said, ‘She’s on to you!’," shared Ashley.

5. DIY Affair 

Although these two celebs are more than comfortable when it comes to their finances, that didn't meant they wanted an extravagant wedding that didn't feel like them. In order to give the affair a personal touch, family and friends took on different roles. They had a friend serve as their officiant, and two others serve as the musicians who played the music that  couple walked up and down the aisle to on the big day. 

Now that the wedding is over, the couple must now face the serious question of what comes next. It's one they are both eager to tackle, and that goes double now that they are officially by each other's side. “I think we could keep making movies, and working on television shows, and start a family, that would be a pretty good life," shared Brant.
