Allison Holker and Stephen "tWitch" Boss will serve as the hosts of Freeform's new Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings TV show.
Freeform has announced the happily-married Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance dancers will host Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings, a seven-episode series slated to debut in Summer 2018, as well as Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings: Holiday Magic, an hour-long holiday special which will debut next month.
Executive produced by Ann Lewis Roberts, Simon Lythgoe and Jenny Daly, the new series will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most spectacular weddings and engagements at Disney Destinations around the globe -- including a sunny holiday proposal at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii.
But first, the Holiday Magic special will air during Freeform's annual "25 Days of Christmas" event on Monday, December 11 at 8PM ET/PT.
The festive holiday special hosted by Allison and tWitch will feature incredible weddings and engagements at Disney destinations around the world during the holiday season, specifically.
Allison and tWitch will welcome viewers into a Frozen-inspired winter wedding at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida celebrating Dominique and Joseph during the holiday special. Fans will also get a front row seat when Greg and Melanie exchange vows at Disneyland Resort in California.
The new Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings series and holiday special follow the success of Freeform's prior Disney weddings special, which aired in May 2017 and was hosted by The Bachelor'sBen Higgins and Lauren Bushnell, who were engaged at the time it was filmed.
The couple, however, split about the same time the show aired. So now, Allison and tWitch -- who have been married for almost four years -- are taking over hosting duties.
"Our wedding is one of my favorite moments of my life," Allison, 29, told Us Weekly.
"It's such a special moment that I got to share with my husband. When they asked us to be a part of Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings, I was honored to be a part of someone else's moment that they'll remember forever. It's so special. It just seemed like a magical moment."
Her husband tWitch, 35, added, "You can't stress enough how once in a lifetime that day is and the memories from it, especially from a groom's perspective -- being able to see your wife literally float down the aisle in a magical place like Disney is something you'll never forget."
Below is more information about the two couples who will be starring on Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings: Holiday Magic special:
- Greg and Melanie (Wedding at Disneyland Park)
We first met Greg and Melanie in May of this year after the couple got engaged at Disney's Animal Kingdom on the Freeform special Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings.
They have been together for four years and, although it wasn't exactly love at first sight, Greg and Melanie ended up falling head over heels for each other. The single dad of a 10-year-old daughter finally popped the question and the couple will be married at Disneyland Park in Anaheim.
- Joe and Dominique (Wedding at Walt Disney World Resort)
Joe and Dominique are the quintessential New York couple. He's an officer with the NYPD, she's a part-time substitute school teacher and also helps her dad out in the family restaurant. After dating for five years, the couple is ready to tie the knot in the same location of their first official vacation as a couple, Walt Disney World Resort.
Nuptials fit for a king and queen, Joe and Dominique's large Italian family will also be treated to a surprise musical performance. It has been Dominique's dream since she was a little girl to get married at Disney's Wedding Pavilion adjacent to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and her dreams are about to come true.
