four weddings tomorrow!

well tomorrow is the big day! the episode of four weddings that we're featured on will be airing at 10pm EST on TLC.


those are just a few of the emotions i've had over the last few weeks especially in anticipation of this day. being on a reality show has been so interesting. the fact that i just typed that sentence is SO WEIRD. i'm gonna be on tv y'all. this is insane.

the whole experience was a lot of fun, but way more time demanding than i ever thought it would be. i also never realized how exhausting it would be to have a camera in your face for 6+ hours in a day. your filter has to be on point. you can't even chew your food without it being captured on film. umm awkward.

i will say that the way that i view tv, especially reality tv, is forever changed. i now have this insider's perspective on what goes on behind the scenes and it's actually pretty cool.

i'm rambling, i know. do you guys have tons of questions yet? haha.

seriously though, there are some things that i'd love to share with you (especially after the episode airs). and i'm sure once you see it there will be questions. so i want to open up the platform for you to ask away in the comment section. i'll do my best to answer what i can in a future post or vlog or something.

maybe you want to know how i got on the show in the first place? what was the audition process like? did i actually like the other girls? was it stressful having cameras and a bunch of TLC crew people at my wedding? is your brain spinning now? cause mine is.

alright i'm gonna keep this brief. but i do want to say thank you thank you thank you for all the love and support you have all shown throughout this process. i know you're rooting me on and will still love me no how crazy i look. you will, right? but seriously, all of YOU are one of the main reasons i did this show. to share another part of my life with you that otherwise you might not have gotten to see. to let you into one of the most special days of my life. so smooches to all of you.

also, i'm gonna do my best to livetweet during the episode if i can manage it. if you don't follow me then go request me (cause i'm private): thelifeofsusan

i've heard that if you tweet with the hashtag #fourweddings then you might have a chance of getting your tweet featured on the show. how cool would that be? so say something about how awesome i am. haha! i kid i kid. but seriously, be nice ok? and just for fun let's make another hashtag #susanfourweddings to use on twitter and IG so i can go back and see what you all said/photographed, etc.


ok, i'm really done now. i love you all!

grace and peace,

I am so excited for this! Four Weddings is one of the few shows that I never miss, so I'm excited to see the wedding of someone I've been reading about for years! I loved your dress and your pictures were so beautiful! Can't wait to see everything in action and can't wait to see the weddings of the other girls too.

I'm so excited! I don't have a DVR so I'll be watching when it comes on. I know I'm going to cry at your beautifulness! Love ya girl!

Michelle said...

I have been WAITING for this to air! I have had it as a reminder on my phone since you first told us when it would air. You looked absolutley stunning in your wedding pictures on instagram and i can't wait to see the footage on the show. I sincerely hope they show when you washed each others feet. My cousin and her husband did that at their wedding and it had me in tears. I am so glad you used this opportunity to show Christs love to everyone who watches this show. I can't wait to see it!!

Is there any way for us non-cable folk to tune in or watch online? I just found your blog, but have been hearing from your sister all the excitement. I am excited to hear more behind-the-scenes work of a reality tv star. Can't wait and CONGRATS!

I might have missed it somewhere along the line, but how did you initially get involved with the show? I actually hadn't heard of it before, but it looks really fun. The dvr is set and I've even convinced my husband to watch. Can't wait!

Congratulations Susan! I think this was my favorite episode of Four Weddings EVER!!!! Your ceremony was so special, heartfelt and the washing of the feet blessed my socks off. If you two weren't ordained to be together by God then I don't know who is. Here are my questions...
1. Do they put you up in a hotel if the weddings you attend aren't near your home?
2. Did you go on a honeymoon after the wedding even though you were waiting to find out who won?
3. If so, where did you go?
4. Do you still keep in touch with the girls you were on the show with?
You were such a testimony on the show and your love of the Lord just shines through your smile. It was a pleasure to watch. Best wishes on your first year as husband and wife and may you celebrate MANY more.

Taped it last night- watching now! Your wedding was gorgeous- loved your dress and the Willow Tree cake topper:)

Shannon Dew said...

I just finished watching and OMG you are adorable! Totally think you should have won though, for real. Umm it seemed like you got the most interview time, no? Probably b/c they loved you!! I'm so happy I got to watch and "share" your big day!!! You were a gorgeous bride and you radiate happiness!

I'm dying! I'm on vacation and couldn't watch live! Must watch as soon as I get home!

Susan, I'm watching right now! I was at work when it aired initially and it's been waiting on my dvr since then. I just watched you and Jeff take your vows and it makes me so happy to see you so joyful after the painful experiences of your past. Your beautiful spirit shines through throughut the episode.

I'm sure I have the same logistical questions as everyone else. How did you get on the show in the first place. Did you actually enjoy the other girls and hanging out with them at one another's weddings, how close were the weddings together time and distance wise, did the show pay for you to attend the other weddings, was it hard to watch the other girls criticize parts of your wedding?...all of that good stuff. But, I was surprised by an additional question as the episode previews started. You had so many cute dresses. WHere did you get them all? (Particularly the black polka dot sleeves and the green with stripes.

Ha! I love that they made your wedding out to be a saintly affair! I had a traditional church wedding too (ours was also about an hour because we wanted to serve communion) and yours didn't feel overly pious-just genuinely reflecting your love for one another and your faith-a personal, traditional wedding. I loved it. It was definitely the most like what I would want, but I LOVE how kind you were in the feedback you gave.

First off you should have won. not just because i "know" you. Everything was so beautiful.

Question: was anything scripted? Were you told to say anything to the camera?

Did you like the other girls?

Tell us about the "getting on the show' part
