Rick Harrison, the ringleader of “Pawn Stars,” is getting ready to walk down the aisle as we speak. The reality star has confirmed for People magazine that he and fiancée will be walking down the aisle this summer.The announcement comes after “months of going back and forth,” the celebrity publication writes, with Harrison involved in every step of the planning process.
Contrary to what he initially expected, the wedding will be a big deal because fiancée Deanna Burditt wills it so.
“She sticking me with all the planning!” Harrison tells People.
They were initially thinking of getting a quickie wedding in Sin City (Las Vegas) but, apparently, Deanna has had a major change of heart: the reception will take place at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Beach, Southern California.
Obviously, it will be a pretty crowded affair.
“It will be a lot of friends and family. It started off with about 40 people and it's well over 100 people now. You know how those things go,” Harrison reveals for the aforementioned e-zine.
“I can't make that up. I just had no idea there was so much involved. I just thought you got a cake, had a party, buy a keg. But we're getting it done,” he says laughing.
Danny Koker of “Counting Cars” on History Channel will marry Rick and Deanne after he gets ordained as a minister, the star explains. Moreover, Chumlee, Rick’s co-star on “Pawning Stars,” will be the ring bearer.
The guestlist isn’t complete just yet, Rick adds.
As these things go, one might assume that the nuptials will be documented on camera for some sort of wedding special or at least to be included in the show.
Harrison isn’t saying anything in this sense yet but, after all, we’ve seen it happen many times before, most notably on Kim Kardashian’s E! reality series: a most profitable business deal, indeed.
