QCC alum Jasmine Rose Solaperto Sullivan will be featured on “Say Yes to the Dress.”
The TLC show highlights Kleinfeld Bridal, the Manhattan-based bridal salon. “Part bridal story, part fashion makeover and part family therapy session, each ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ looks at the personalities and craftsmanship that come into play,” according to the TLC website.
Jasmine was married to Brian Sullivan of Westport, CT last November in a destination wedding in Las Vegas. She graduated from Quinsigamond Community College in May 2013 and was an active member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society during her time at the college.
Her father, John Solaperto, Senior Technical Specialist in QCC's Office of Institutional Communications, said the show shot footage in New York City, at Kleinfeld Bridal, and in Las Vegas. The wedding was held at the Valley of Fire, which he said is about a 20-minute helicopter ride outside of Vegas.
“On our helicopter trip out, we flew over the Grand Canyon and saw the Hoover Dam,” said Mr. Solaperto. “It was amazing.”
He said it was just a coincidence that his daughter ended up being featured on the show. A friend of Brian's said they should shop for a dress at Kleinfeld’s and while they were there, producers for the show asked if she wanted to be on the TLC hit.
The episode is scheduled to air on April 22 at 8 p.m. on TLC.
