Check your local listings to see a very special two-part Wedding Special of the series, "Growing Up McGhee," on the UP TV network. Joan's Bridal Couture was featured on part one of the series and the episode airs this Thursday, March 23, at 9:30 PM EST.
In it, Mia and Ro McGhee plan a special vow renewal to take place in the Turks and Caicos. Joan Madison was truly honored to have had the opportunity to make a custom couture bridal gown for Mia. We also styled Ro in a linen suit and dressed the sextuplets in coordinating suits and flower girl dresses as well.
Working with the McGhees was a wonderful experience and everyone at Joan's Bridal Couture had a great time filming the segment. Congratulations to Mia and Ro and may God continue to bless their union! We would like to thank them for allowing Joan's Bridal Couture to be a part of your special day.
