Hampstead couple featured on TLC wedding show


PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Hampstead newlyweds Paul and Suzanne Sweeney are still wrapping their heads around the fact that their wedding will soon be aired on televisions around the country.

Suzanne applied and got selected to be featured on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress before the couple’s New Year’s Eve wedding. As a bonus, TLC decided to also film the wedding at Poplar Grove Plantation, which the couple said has a special meaning to them.

“When we came to visit it made me feel like I was kind of back home,” Paul Said. And Suzanne said she loves how much Poplar Grove does for the community.

Poplar Grove’s wedding specialist Christina Fennel said it’s been a great opportunity to showcase the historic location.

“It really is a very unique venue, the bride can get dressed in this beautiful bridal suite, you have the ceremony spots under the gazebo or the tree and then you have the reception area all in the same compound,” Fennel said.

The episode will air February 19 at 9:30 p.m. on TLC.
