The History Channel reality series Pawn Stars may seem like an unlikely hit, but fans have ratcheted up the rankings to the point that the show sits right behind Jersey Shore. And soon after Jersey Shore cast member JWoww has her fairy tale wedding this spring, Pawn Stars’ Rick Harrison will be marrying girlfriend Deanna Burditt!
Pawn Stars fans waited a long time before Rick Harrison proposed to Deanna Burditt. And they’ve been waiting forever to learn about the wedding details. So, of course,the show’s devotees will be thrilled to learn that a wedding date has finally been set — for July of this year! The big ceremony will take place at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Beach.
Setting the date and location of the wedding may be a big achievement for Rick, but it’s only the first step in the long process of wedding planning. After announcing the exciting news, Rick complained to People, “[Deanna's] sticking me with all the planning!” He added, “It will be a lot of friends and family. It started off with about 40 people and it’s well over 100 people now. You know how those things go.”
Rick’s not too eager to go into specifics just yet, but he’s hinting at quite a bit of wedding involvement from the rest of the Pawn Stars cast. Right now, Counting Cars’ Danny Koker is set to be the ordained minister, with Chumlee taking the position of ring bearer. Rick promises that there are more details to come, but for now, “I can’t make that up. I just had no idea there was so much involved. I just thought you got a cake, had a party, buy a keg. But we’re getting it done.”
