Local Reporter Very Happy For Her!
For those of you who missed it this morning, Molly Mouchka, a Sacramento native, and her fiancÚ, Jason Waggoner (pictured), have won a dream wedding on the "Today" show. (Read my earlier Q&A with them.)
The couple beat out six other couples in a very entertaining series of competitions that involved Molly and Jason dressing up as Sonny and Cher to sing a rousing rendition of "I Got You Babe," learning to salsa dance and actually taking it public, playing a version of "The Newlywed Game," modeling first-date attire in a fashion show, tearing through a wedding-themed obstacle course and decorating a wedding cake.
The two garnered enough votes to win the big prize, and starting Monday, will appear on the show every day as viewers vote on the tiny, inconsequential details of their big day like, oh, the dress, the cake and the honeymoon. No biggie.
Molly, who gave the most adorable little shriek when Matt Lauer pronounced them winners, called me from the airport tarmac on her way back to Playa Del Rey, where she and Jason will have just a couple days to pack and get ready for the events leading to their wedding on Oct. 6. She was elated and says the fact that they've won hadn't sunk in yet, although she wanted to thank everyone here in Sacramento for voting for them over the last several weeks.
Tune in to the show on Monday morning for the first of the big decisions - Molly's dress. And check back here at 21Q - I'll be blogging as things progress 'cause, well, who doesn't love a wedding?
