DESCRIPTION: (from FOX's press release) From executive producers Andy Tennant and Wink Mordaunt (“Hitch,” “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Ever After”) comes a series that captures the ups and downs of tying the knot through the eyes of the second-most important man in the room – the wedding photographer. Whether the event is the toast of the Manhattan society pages, a hush-hush ceremony for über-celebrities, or the Brooklyn bash for a mafia princess, TONY ZUTTO is the guy everyone wants to capture their big day. But just because he’s working every high-profile ceremony in town doesn’t mean he’ll be walking down the aisle himself anytime soon. Tony’s near-celebrity status on the marriage circuit – combined with his own less-than-stellar family history – has turned him into a serial bachelor and consummate playboy ... at least until Tony hires new assistant MILLA CAVENDISH, a feisty and alluring young Brit. Unlike the carefree encounters Tony’s had with his share of bridesmaids over the years, Milla and her comrades-in-arms, sassy roommate GRETCHEN and photo lab tech BRUNO, will keep Tony on his toes. Also keeping his wild ways in check are PETER, Tony’s strait-laced half-brother and a minister to boot; Tony’s gregarious father DANNY, who is always ready to dispense a helping of advice along with the liquor he serves at his neighborhood bar; and GWEN, Tony’s take-charge office manager, who often sticks her nose into situations where she doesn’t necessarily belong. From the tempestuous rehearsal dinners and unorthodox ceremonies to the wild aftermaths and poignant family disasters, THE WEDDING ALBUM points its lens at all things matrimonial. The series proves that things are definitely more interesting when every day at the “office” is the most important day of someone else’s life.
