Non-traditional couple. (ABC)

“It’s kinda cool how it all pans out because it’s very much our characters.”

Jason and Sam’s wedding day finally arrives, but it involves a whole week’s worth of festivities, including a trip to a Chinese restaurant and a visit from Franco [James Franco]. Soaps.com recently chatted with Steve Burton and Kelly Monaco to find out what’s in store for their characters’ long awaited nuptials beginning September 19.

Steve: Hey, Lori. How are you?

Kelly: Hi Lori. How are you?

Soaps.com: Good, how are you two doing?

Steve: We’re doing great. Thank you.

Kelly: Awesome. Thank you.

Soaps.com: Thanks so much for talking with us today.

Steve: Sure.

Soaps.com: So, Sam and Jason’s wedding is next week.

Steve: It is all next week.

Kelly: All next week. [laughs] Yes.

Soaps.com: Things don’t exactly go as planned and they end up in a Chinese restaurant. How does that happen?

Steve: Oh, man. It is a long story, but I’m going to make it real short for ya. You know, the idea of them getting married, first of all, was pretty crazy. Sam really isn’t the marrying type – Until she found the right guy – but Jason kind of wanted to show Sam, ‘Hey. I love you. I want to be with you. This is what I want to do. I want to commit to you. I want to get married.’ Of course, at first she was a little gun shy, ‘No. No. No,’ but then, we decided to get married.

Kelly: Go along with everyone else’s idea of what our marriage should be.

Steve: Right and have a traditional wedding. Give Sam, or every woman, what they would want for a wedding, so we kind of go down that road. Start planning things, start picking things out.

Kelly: Lo and behold it’s a little overwhelming for both of them and I think they find a moment where they say, ‘Let’s go take a breather,’ and [they] go for a ride on the bike and end up in a Chinese restaurant where the opportunity comes up and they’re able to get hitched without anyone else there. And it worked.

Steve: And it was great. But then they have to go back to the ceremony where the friends and family are waiting. Angrily.

Kelly: At the big traditional wedding.

Steve: Yes. And Franco is looming at the ceremony. So, it’s a fun filled week for us. So you have to make sure you tune in and see what happens.

Soaps.com: Basically there are two ceremonies that they have to get through.

Kelly: Yeah, well, adjacent.

Steve: There’s a few different things they have to get through.

Kelly: There’s a couple obstacles.

Steve: He does see her in her wedding dress, but then they don’t have a traditional wedding. But then they go to the traditional ceremony.

Kelly: They go to the traditional wedding they planned with not traditional clothes.

Steve: Yes. So, it’s kinda cool how it all pans out because it’s very much our characters.

Kelly: The best of both worlds too. It gives a taste to every…

Steve: To everybody. And then we have our honeymoon. So, there you have it.

Soaps.com: So Franco does not interrupt the honeymoon. You guys still get your happy ending?

Kelly: We can’t tell you that.

Steve: Actually, I don’t know that. She knows, but I don’t know.
