Season 5, Episode 5
“Jerrica & Joe”
Old-fashioned Hollywood glamour meets the pomp and circumstance of the military in this Central California wedding. Bride Jerrica and groom, Army Reservist Joe, fell in love over the movies, so when it came time to plan their wedding, they decided to combine their love of classic films with the pageantry of the armed forces.
Then the bride found her wedding gown, and quickly realized that it was too grand for their first wedding site, so they moved the event to a larger church, so the gown would have a proper setting. One dress would not be enough for a silver-screen type celebration, so Jerrica assembled three wedding day looks, and a personal jewelry consultant helped her complete her ensembles with almost $150,000 worth of gems. To honor her groom's Asian heritage, one of the bride’s outfits is an heirloom gown from his grandmother, to be worn during a traditional tea ceremony on their wedding day.
Wardrobe isn't the only thing that comes in threes in this wedding. There will be three different cakes, as well. In addition to a massive six-tier high main cake, there will be a groom's cake, and an entire room filled with mini-cakes for the children who will be attending the wedding.
The wedding planner pulls out all the stops, putting together a red carpet complete with paparazzi to make the guests feel like Hollywood royalty as they arrive. At the reception, lively entertainment and theatre-style seating will make every guest feel like they have a front row seat.
The décor shines like a movie premiere with hundreds of flowers, ostrich plumes and crystal-draped candles highlighted by the regal dark blue colors that reflect the groom's military background.
