We spoke with Steve and Kelly about the wedding and the future of soaps in a recent exclusive interview. The actors described the big day and revealed that they made preparations for a typical celebration. Steve said that once Jason proposed and realized Sam wasn't going to runaway, "We start planning a pretty traditional wedding, every woman's dream wedding — family, dress, church, the whole nine yards."
But the unconventional couple could not go through with the traditional pomp and circumstance and ended up tying the knot in a Chinese restaurant. Kelly remarked, "Little did we know there was a minister there that owned the restaurant."
Watch the clip below to hear the details.
And even though people are comparing Sam and Jason's wedding to that of Luke and Laura, the actors are humbled by the association. Steve responded, "Luke and Laura — they’re idols. They’re legends. I'm not even going to put myself in that category." And Kelly added, "It's like 'Here's the new Elvis.' There's only one Elvis.
