Well, somehow I missed the second episode of the season and it is not on Spectrum’s On Demand. Maybe part one and part two ran on the same night and I didn’t notice? I’m irked. I also pulled photos and then cleaned out my photo files. This recap just doesn’t seem to want to happen.
Kate & Luke
Looks parents are freaking out more than the bride and groom. His mother is sobbing and the bride hasn’t even shown up yet. Kate’s father apparently isn’t coming so her brother is walking her down the aisle. She wants her groom to have a beard and three out of four of the new grooms do. Luke is one of them.
Luke recognizes Kate from one of his speed dating events. It seemed like this was going to be an issue based on the commercials but he immediately gives her a hug before the ceremony even starts and has a huge smile on his face. She doesn’t seem to recognize him.
These two seem so happy together. I can’t stop smiling watching this ceremony. Luke is definitely a hugger. He hugged her three times during the ceremony. Over champagne Kate realizes that he is the speed dating guy.
At the reception, Luke is very nervous about the first dance. Did these two kiss at the ceremony? I thought everyone did but Luke’s mom is now so all in on this idea that she is leading the charge for the couple to kiss in front of everyone. Luke is very uncomfortable. He doesn’t want to be forced into a kiss so they don’t. In the previews we see Kate tell Kristine that Luke said he felt “repulsed and dead inside” after they kissed. That would end the relationship for me. I’ve dumped people for much less. It looks like it got even worse. Lots of scenes of her crying alone and him out with another woman.
Kristine & Keith
Keith cleans up really nice and that fact is not lost on Kristine’s family and friends. Kristine’s dad is not down with any of this. Kristine’s mom likes what she sees and gives Keith a huge hug. Keith’s mom is nervous but happy for him. All the bridesmaids have to get their hugs in with Keith as well. Kristine’s dad tries to talk her out of it. He’s making her nervous.
Kristine and Keith are both thrilled with their new spouses.
At the reception these two dance well together. Kristine says it feels like they have been dating forever. Keith informs Kristine that she will be doing all the cooking. She’s not thrilled by that. This situation shows up in the previews as well. She’s not cooking three meals a day. Does anyone? Can’t he make sandwiches for lunch? Scramble an egg?
Jasmine & Will
I may have missed the ceremony, but we pick right up with these two at the reception with Jasmine helping Will with his dance moves. All the couples this season seem to have an initial spark.
Jasmine and Will seem to have great chemistry but in the commercials they are shown disagreeing about finances. It seems like he wants to split the bills and she feels like the man should pay the larger portion.
Stephanie & AJ
During their first dance AJ shared that his mother put him in tap and jazz classes as a kid because she wanted a girl. Stephanie laughs and shares that she was supposed to be a boy. AJ is a bit on the hyper side but they both seem very happy. I’ve never seen so much harmony on the wedding episodes of this show before.
In the previews Stephanie appears to be one of those people who can’t decide where to eat dinner and AJ loses patience with her. There seems to be a lot of discord coming up for these two.
