Jennifer Coppola always dreamed of being a princess on her wedding day, but her vision of “royalty” isn’t exactly the same as David Tutera’s…
Jennifer Coppola always dreamed of being a princess on her wedding day, but her vision of “royalty” isn’t exactly the same as David Tutera’s. So, with less than three weeks before Jennifer says “I do” to her fiancé, Marcello, David begins a dramatic transformation of their wedding—and of Jennifer herself. Gone are her Pepto-Bismol-colored, Little Bo Peep-style bridesmaid’s dresses...her fake flower centerpieces…the exploding balloon columns…and Jennifer’s mile-wide, too-much-tulle-infused wedding gown. In their place, David arranges for Jennifer and her bridesmaids to wear awe-inspiring designer gowns from the exclusive Disney Bridal salon. He takes Jennifer to Cipriani’s on 42nd Street in Manhattan, one of the city’s most luxurious restaurants, where he gives her a five-course lesson in table etiquette. Later, he accompanies her to the Cutler Salon in SoHo where a “glam squad” gives Jennifer a complete makeover. But David saves the biggest surprise and transformation for last. On their wedding day, Jennifer and Marcello are taken not to their original venue but to the Hempstead House, a castle on the shores of Long Island, where Jennifer’s dream of becoming a true princess becomes a reality.
