“Imagine you’re heading to a friend’s party to enjoy an afternoon with friends — and then the unthinkable happens — a surprise wedding occurs! Welp, that’s exactly what happened on Saturday, August 20 in Los Angeles when a casual Saturday afternoon turned into a surprise wedding for Mark Steines and Julie Freyermuth.

The backstory: about 100 people headed to TV personality Mark Steines’ home, where they thought they were attending an anniversary party for his show Home and Family. The Hallmark Channel show had just celebrated its fifth year on air, so it was an easy ploy for the two to hide their nuptials before the big reveal, Us Weekly confirmed. His beautiful bride, Julie Freyermuth, 36, is the author of the children’s book series Norbert the Dog, who is based upon her real-life dog Norbert, a 3-lb mixed breed therapy dog (with the cutest little wiggly tongue and floppy ears). Of course, he played a role in the nuptials.


In a flowy, off-white BHLDN gown with a strapped sweetheart bodice and flute-shaped train, the elegant bride walked down the aisle to the surprise of all their guests to one of the couple’s favorite songs, “100 Years” by Five for Fighting. The beautiful brunette wore her hair back with just a few tendrils left forward, adding to her romantic look, while holding white peonies in a tight bouquet. A thin silver necklace grazed her neck, and her nails were polished a pinkish beige color. The only real jewelry on her hands was her engagement ring and a Neil Lane French antique wedding band, created circa 1910 — worn by both the bride and the groom.” Full Article
