One of my favorite movies of all time is “Father of The Bride,” particularly because of Martin Short’s memorable performance as an over-the-top wedding planner. Little did I know that Short’s character, Franck Eggelhoffer, was based on Korean American celebrity florist Kevin Lee.
Set to debut tonight (Oct. 28), Lee has teamed up with TLC and Renée Strauss, the no-nonsense owner of the eponymous Beverly Hills salon, for a new reality show called “The Brides of Beverly Hills.”
“The Brides of Beverly Hills” is yet another matrimonial-themed show TLC has decided to take down its programming aisle. The unscripted series is set in Strauss’ Beverly Hills salon that serves all sorts of high-end clients from the Los Angeles area.
Lee is also no stranger to celebrity clientele, as he has previously done floral arrangements for Jennifer Aniston, Kendra Wilkinson, and Michael Jackson.
“TLC is the destination for wedding programming, and ‘The Brides of Beverly Hills’ builds on the popularity of ‘Say Yes to the Dress,’ ‘Four Weddings,’ and our other successful series,” said Amy Winter, TLC general manager, in a statement. “These brides and Renee’s business can only be found in one of the most talked-about towns in the country, and we know our audience will love this insider’s look at this premier wedding boutique.”
Check out a teaser video of the show here.
