DESCRIPTION: (from TLC's press release, June 2013) TLC makes destination wedding dreams come true in WEDDING ISLAND, a new series following wedding planner extraordinaire, Sandy Malone and her team of experts as they navigate the logistical challenges of coordinating nuptials on Vieques Island, a tiny rock in the Caribbean. WEDDING ISLAND premieres with a full episode sneak peek on Wednesday, July 17 at 10 PM ET/PT with the second episode airing the following evening in its regularly scheduled timeslot of Thursdays at 10 PM ET/PT. Vieques Island is known for its beautiful beaches, breathtaking views, and unfortunately, limited resources and supplies. For couples in love, it is the perfect romantic destination, but for Sandy, the only wedding planner on this remote island seven miles off the coast of Puerto Rico, it's all business as she manages strict schedules, large crews, and endlessly complex details. A wedding planner with a feisty personality and a "get it done" attitude, she is a bride's only hope to having the perfect dream wedding. With the inherent obstacles of this tropical paradise, Sandy and her small "Weddings in Vieques" team, including her husband, SWAT team commander-turned-wedding-staffer Bill, must rely on vendors who set their watches to the unpredictable and usually lackadaisical "Island Time," while praying for the mercy of not only Mother Nature, but often her demanding brides-to-be, who will stop at nothing to see their dream day become reality.
