How exciting to watch this all unfold:


It was announced that Emmy Award Winner Mark Steines and television host and model mother and cook extraordinaire Cristina Ferrare are opening up their “Home” to fete lifestyle expert Paige Hemmis and musician Jason Short, of the Australian pop/opera music group ARIA, who will be married on a very special “Home & Family” primetime event, Monday, June 22 (8pm ET/PT, 7C).
