On Friday $Bill and Katie said their “I dos” and became Mr. & Mrs. Bill Spencer. The wedding venue was a simple public park next to the Logans’ valley home. At first I thought this wedding was going to be a cheap ass wedding in a crappy park but I have to admit I was wrong. I liked the outside shooting B&B did for the wedding and the set was beautiful and very well done.
Then there were the dresses. The bridesmaids’ dresses were a bit too much for my taste. I liked the color but the flower-ish thingie was BAD. Both Brooke and Donna had their hair up, but I have to say Donna’s hairdo was so bad. Brooke’s was ok, still not her best look.
On to the bride! Since it’s a Spencer/Logan wedding and with Ridge designing the wedding dress, we thought Katie was going to walk down the aisle in one unique dress that every woman in LA would die to have. When Katie finally showed up at the wedding, with Stephen giving her away, I was shocked to see her in a very simple dress with simple hairdo. Then I realized that it makes sense because this is Katie Logan we are talking about. Katie never was much of a fashionista like her sisters, so I can understand Ridge thinking she would want her dress to be simple. Now the only thing I did NOT like about Katie’s look was the strand of pearls in her hair.
As for guests, I thought Beth and Karen both looked very beautiful. Karen was so beautiful she made me wish Johanna Johnson would join the show again and give us one new triangle with Brooke/Ridge/Karen. Wishful thinking I know!!
Even though some didn’t like Bill in the all white suit, I particularly loved it and thought he was looking hot, as usual.
Back to the wedding venue. The whole park thing wasn’t doing for it me until Katie said her vows to Bill. She showed how much the place meant to her, right outside her bedroom where she used to sit for hours alone staring at a future she was not sure about. Then I fell in love with the idea. It was Katie’s moment and she chose to enjoy her victory and prove to herself that she took her life from where she used to be all alone to now being surrounded by the people she loves and marrying the man she loves. That’s why I loved the ending of the episode with “This Is My Now” by “Jordin Sparks” playing. The song was a great choice for Katie Logan and the short shots of the young Katie were beautifully edited from Heather Tom’s early days on the sister CBS soap Y&R…
Congrats to the happy couple and best of luck to them (they are going to need it). Especially if the rumors are true about Bill having a skeleton coming out of his closet to haunt him soon… Did Katie just make the biggest mistake of her life???
