July 16, 2007 12:01 AM by Joe Blackmon

Jennifer, a 29-year-old bride and Jim, a 35-year-old groom from Erie,
PA, will undergo a life-changing experience together as their lives and
looks are transformed by a team of plastic surgeons and top hair and
makeup artists, stylists and personal trainers before they are then
revealed to each other among families and friends in their fairy tale
wedding, on "Extreme Makeover," MONDAY, JULY 16 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET),
