Vanessa Minnillo - Nick Lachey wedding special to air on TLC - see sneak peek video
TLC has released a sneak peek video of its two-hour special of the recent wedding of Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo.
The program, called "Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding," will debut on Saturday, July 30 at 9 p.m. ET, the cable network said in a weekend statement.
The special captures "the excitement and anticipation as Nick Lachey & Vanessa Minnillo plans their ceremony with their family and friends," TLC's statement said. "In this exclusive television event, viewers are invited along to the actual wedding to help celebrate as the couple becomes husband and wife."
The 37-year-old pop singer and host of NBC show "The Sing Off" and Minnillo, who is 30 and is the new co-host of ABC's "Wipeout," married on Friday, July 15.
The ceremony took place before some 35 guests on Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson's private island paradise in the British Virgin Islands, People magazine reported on Tuesday.
The bride wore a two-piece Monique Lhuillier gown and the groom donned a Dolce & Gabanna suit.
A TLC special of their wedding was confirmed previously but the air date had not yet been announced.
Lachey and Minnillo became engaged in November 2010 after dating on and off for at least three years. They went public with their relationship soon after she appeared in his music video "What's Left of Me," which was released in 2006. The clip depicts Lachey's marriage and divorce to fellow pop singer Jessica Simpson, who is played by Minnillo.
Lachey and Simpson were married between 2002 and 2006 and have no children together. The two starred on the MTV reality show "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica," which documented their married life together. The wedding of Lachey and Minnillo will also be televised - as part of a TLC network special.
Minnillo had told OnTheRedCarpet.com that the two wanted to get married before 2012. Both she and Lachey have said they want to have children.
"We want to have a family and we're very excited about that, so I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't take too long," Lachey had told OnTheRedCarpet.com in mid-June. "At least that's my hope. I'm getting up there. I gotta start pumping them out."
