A new reality Netflix series by the creators of "Queer Eye" debuts today (July 1) and features Queen City landmarks and businesses you may be familiar with.
"Say I Do," which was filmed last summer, introduces viewers to eight couples who receive surprise weddings planned by three celebrity designers (Jeremiah Brent, Thai Nguyen, Gabriele Bertaccini) after the couples struggled with obstacles that prevented them from carrying out their own.
All eight of the weddings were located in either the Queen City or Indianapolis area, with five taking place locally and the remaining in Indianapolis.
The series teamed up with local vendors and venues to carry out the couples' dream weddings, including local florist Emily Rose, a Northern Kentucky-based florist who has been in the industry for over a decade.
Rose worked alongside Brent, one of the designers, in order to execute his floral visions for each of the episodes.
"Every episode had a theme, so they were all very carefully planned to incorporate design elements that the couple loved! Think carnival rides and full on Gatsby-themed events," Rose said in an email interview.
According to Rose, her favorite project (and largest install she's created thus far), was an extravagant hanging piece positioned beneath a balcony at Indianapolis' Omni Hotel.
The series spans eight episodes, each covering a couple's love story and dream wedding. The episodes last roughly an hour each.
