Every couple dreams of having the perfect wedding. For many, it's the most important and emotional day of their lives. But for some, insurmountable obstacles create barriers to making their dream day a reality.

TNT's "Wedding Day" gives deserving couples a helping hand to ensure the most important day of their lives is also the most magical. Each week, celebrity event planner and food expert Alan Dunn ("For Better or Worse") and celebrity wedding producer and designer Diann Valentine (author of "Weddings Valentine Style") host as family, friends and community come together to create a dream wedding. Along the way, viewers will learn each couple's compelling story, from their first date to their wedding day.

Burnett and the production team for "Wedding Day" reached out to hospitals, non-profits, school districts, universities, law enforcement agencies, fire departments and branches of the military to find loving couples who have dedicated their lives to helping others but for reasons beyond their control have not been able to tie the knot. They also scoured newspapers, blogs and web sites for stories of engaged couples who, even in the face of adversity, refused to give up hope of one day having a wedding. Many couples were nominated by their family and friends, the people who knew firsthand how much the couples deserved a special day.

Among the couples chosen from around the nation to participate in "Wedding Day" are Sarah & Bryan (Atlanta), who met while Bryan was struggling to cope with the untimely death of his first wife and the mother of his children; Jaénelle & Nyk (Detroit, Michigan), who had to postpone their wedding plans when it was discovered that their infant daughter would have to have one of her kidneys removed and need constant care from Jaénelle, who happens to be a neo-natal intensive care nurse; Michelle & Roy (South Los Angeles and Woodland Hills, California), a pair of community outreach workers who get a special silver screen wedding at the Park Plaza Hotel; Tyra & Rich (Imperial Beach, California), a firefighter and lifeguard who spend so much time rescuing people they haven't had time to plan their own wedding; Holli & Steve (Saginaw, Michigan), who have struggled to return to a normal life after Holli was injured in a car accident that left her in a coma for six days; and Army Capt. Shawn Fitzgerald & Capt. Christina Fanitzi (New York), whose wedding plans have been put on hold because of their duties in Iraq.

TNT's "Wedding Day" comes from producing giants Mark Burnett Productions and DreamWorks Television, with Mark Burnett ("Survivor"); DreamWorks' Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey ("Las Vegas," TNT's "Into the West"); and Janelle Fiorito ("Extreme Makeover: Home Edition") serving as executive producers.
