Someone has to say something!

Did anyone see Mrs. Nearlywed's premier episode of "Whose Wedding is it Anyway?" last night???? Mr. Bowie and I set ourselves up on the couch and very much enjoyed the show! Honestly? I think Mrs. Nearlywed did a phenomenal job with the obstacles that she was faced with.

Having just "survived" my own wedding and planning and with my experiences doing event photography, the challenge of making a "perfect" day when you've only got one shot and challenges that you would never expect or even think of to begin with is tough! It takes a very special individual to be in the wedding and event planning industry. And surely, even though the television cameras were there catching things moment-to-moment, certainly there were things that didn't even make it off the cutting room floor and we probably just as challenging as what did make the episode.

I give Mrs. Nearlywed a standing ovation for her accomplishment with Sundonia and Jerome's wedding. Knowing how much of a challenge my own wedding was to pull off, she's a one-of-a-kind-incredible original who I think breaks the mold.

I watched it! I thought the wedding turned out great and Sundonia is GORGEOUS! I just want to know how Mrs. Nearlywed got those flowers and table linens for so cheap (and so last minute)! Did the show help out with that? There must have been some discount involved...

Hi! Thanks everyone!! What a wild ride! The show didn't help out with the flowers or the linens. I had to use some pretty heavy duty and creative wheeling and dealing to strike a deal and get items we needed within budget. We weren't able to get chair covers, but I think everything still turned out terrific. I was really pleased!

Mrs. Nearlywed, we can't thank you enough for all you did for our wedding day. While True Entertainment took a bit of dramatic license in their editing of the bride, your fabulous efforts came across like a God sent. From our first conversation, we were thrilled and relieved to have a trust-worthy and experienced wedding planner to turn over the reigns. We wish we could've have met you sooner! However, if we had to do it all over again, we would have traded the cameras for more intimacy on our special day. Reality television is often a stretch from true reality.
