So, you’ve all heard so much about the upcoming Lumi Green Wedding! It was so much fun to shoot even though it was so complicated. There were so many different people involved with making the wedding so beautiful and special. The dresses Monique Lhullier sent over for me to try were gorgeous – it was so hard to select which one to wear. I’ve never seen St. Luke’s look so beautiful with all the gorgeous flowers by The Hidden Garden Floral Designs. The place was literally overflowing with blooms. Shooting weddings are always time consuming and complicated… and believe me I know! This will be Sami’s 10th!!! But this one was made even more complicated due to Bryan getting extremely ill on the day of shooting. While many grooms may look a little green around the gills, that isn’t really the story Days is going for. Lol. So, we had to re-schedule the wedding to give Bry a couple days to recover. It was so brutal too – Bryan is such a trooper, he came to work and was trying to do the scenes without any complaint. But he couldn’t hide it for long, and was eventually taken to the Doctors. When I spoke to him later, he was so drained… he needed to sleep it off. So after a few days delay, we got the scenes done, and everything from there went off without a hitch. Well, there’s always a ‘hitch’ or two in a Sami wedding! But, as far as production went, it was a really long day, but the scenes went according to plan. I just got a sneak peak at one part of a show, scheduled to air at the end of next week that got me choked up a little… I can’t wait to read what you all think when you see it. Well, anyway, while we were shooting the scenes of Sami getting ready to walk down the aisle, the nbc.com cameras were close at hand to shoot some behind-the-scenes footage - XO ali
