The Wedding Recap

Bridal Check-In

The wedding of the season is about to get started but before that, Mark and Cristina, along with the rest of the Home & Family team welcome you to the big event! Debbie Matenopoulos is at the hotel with the bride-to-be Paige Hemmis and her bridal party, where the gang can barely maintain their excitement! Paige admits that she has butterflies, but knows once she looks at Jason down the aisle, everything will feel calm. Jason of Beverly Hills is lending diamonds to the bride-to-be and she is so excited to try them on.
 


Groomsmen Check-In

Lawrence Zarian talks about getting the groom Jason ready for the big day. Debbie visits with Jason and the groomsmen, where the groom admits that he is getting nervous but can’t wait to see his beautiful bride at the end of the wedding aisle. Later on, Dr. JJ talks about her own wedding day with Mark and Cristina and how special every wedding is.


A Look Back at Flowers

The owner of Fleurish Flowers and The Hidden Garden, Amy Marella talks to Mark and Cristina about the importance of flowers for the wedding. Earlier, she and Cristina put together some beautiful arrangements. She knew that Paige loves the color of pink, so Cristina chose a variety of pinks for the chandeliers and centerpiece. It is important to remember that flowers can be magical, but shouldn’t take any attention away from the beautiful bride.


Dancing Practice

Kym Douglas and Matt Rogers team up to talk about the couple’s first dance. They decided to go to professionals Peta and Artem from “Dancing with the Stars” to teach Jason and Paige how to have the perfect first dance. The instructors admit that since the chosen first song is a fast one, the dance will be a bit challenging, but Jason and Paige are up for it!


Fabio’s in the Kitchen

Cristina visits Fabio Viviani in the kitchen to see how the wedding menu is coming along. She says the entire kitchen smells amazing and Fabio explains that it must be the marinara sauce that is simmering on the stove. After visiting Fabio, Cristina checks in with Patrick Hansen of Hansen’s Cakes to see the wedding cakes that will be served. He tells Cristina that it took him 36 hours to complete all three cakes. After the check-in, Mark shows you how the gentlemen of Home & Family made their own dance floor!

Smile Makeover

Mark and Cristina are joined by Paige’s mom and Jason’s parents. Jason’s mom was given a complete dental makeover so she could feel secure with her smile on her son’s wedding day. She went to famed celebrity dentist, William Dorfman. Jason accompanies mom, who has always been frightened of the dentist. Jason is moved to tears at his mom’s courage and her new million dollar smile.
