"WEDDINGS OF A LIFETIME" Ceres Argent and John Ruzich: Ceres, a Greek, and John, a Catholic, met and fell in love at law school. When they decided to marry in Hempstead, New York, their families argued over everything from the ceremony (a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony was accepted as the compromise) to what sort of music would be played at the reception (the music would be divided evenly between traditional Greek and popular American). Fernanda Gonzalez and Sam Hurwitz: A wedding in Fernanda's native Mexico sounded heavenly. Guests from Jason's native America joined Fernanda's family in a town just outside Puerto Vallarta for a five-day destination affair. Then Mother Nature struck when a level five hurricane decimated the town, destroying their plans. Both families and friends joined together to create a beautiful wedding. Sharda Aswani and Kirk Fabrizio: Sharda's parents had an arranged Indian wedding and wanted the same for their daughter, which made dating, let alone finding a husband, a challenge. For many years, Sharda tried convincing her parents she wanted to find her own true love. In the end, she persevered and landed a blond beach boy from Malibu -- for a traditional Hindu wedding in Los Angeles. Geri Ann Baptista and Jason Allan: Marriage took a roundabout route until this couple finally exchanged their vows in a traditional Phillipino (Geri Ann's heritage) wedding in Honolulu. After a whirlwind romance in their native Seattle, Jason took a job in Portland he couldn't refuse. Unfortunately, Geri Ann's job was in Seattle and she couldn't follow. After September 11, Geri Ann re-thought her priorities and hurried to Portland. "WEDDINGS OF A LIFETIME" SEGMENTS In "Celebrity Look Back," Holly Robinson-Peete relives what obstacles she overcame to meet her husband, NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, as she takes a look back at their fairytale wedding.
