A “jeans and T-shirt kind of gal” who loves watching NASCAR, Amanda Becvar holds strong to her Irish roots and wants her wedding day to reflect that. Vivid green bridesmaid dresses…shamrocks everywhere…a pub with reception tables named after Irish whiskeys. The only thing missing is a leprechaun ring bearer. But David Tutera has a different vision in mind, and a somewhat daunting task: how does he turn this St. Patty’s Day happy hour into a stately and elegant event? And how does he transform a Long Island tomboy into an enchanting Irish maiden? With less than two weeks before her wedding, Amanda suddenly finds herself on a horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park where David introduces her to some Irish customs to bring her luck. He later escorts her to the luxurious Waterford Crystal showroom on Madison Avenue to pick out gifts for her bridal party and to provide her with an astonishing gift of his own. But Amanda’s best surprise awaits her at the Maximus Salon where David treats her to a complete makeover. By the time she walks down the aisle, Amanda is every bit the beautiful Irish maiden David envisioned…and her wedding—complete with bagpipers, spectacular floral displays and a cake topped with a specially designed family crest—couldn’t be more memorable if it took place on the Emerald Isle.
