“He wanted to give me the fairy tale wedding,” Kim, 35, tells PEOPLE, adding that she knew nothing more than the location, time and date. “I didn’t know the colors of my wedding or what my bouquet would look like! But I trusted his taste.”
There was a horse drawn carriage had picked up Kim for a tour around the vineyard of California’s Charles Krug Winery before her debut in front of one hundred and sixty friends and family members.
“I cried when she walked down the aisle,” says Irvine, 46. “She was jaw-dropping – this glow of beauty, wearing a dress with a long train. She looked so beautiful.”
And the surprises kept going as Chef Masaharu Morimoto serenaded the couple with a Japanese love song, and Kim enlisted the help of best man (and fellow Food Network star) Guy Fieri to cater a rehearsal dinner.
Guests were treated to an interactive experience at cocktail hour.
“Chef Morimoto made sushi,” says Irvine. “It was so fresh the octopus was alive!”
