KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - A Kennett woman planned a small, intimate wedding for Valentine's Day 2014, but her fiance had other ideas.

Two months ago Jimmy French decided to surprise his fiance Camille with a wedding at the Opera House in Kennett.

"I've lied to you for three weeks. I won't lie to you again, but I've lied to you for three weeks," he told her after revealing the surprise.

Holly Maddox is Camille's hairstylist, longtime friend and Jimmy's partner in crime. "Holly, I was in her phone as Jerry, and she was in my phone as Brad," Jimmy said.

"For us to pull this off in this town is something because everybody knows everything," she said. "I'm very excited for her to see it and I know she's going to be absolutely amazed."

Maddox helped him find a caterer, a band and a decorator.

"My role was to transform this beautiful building into a Wedding Wonderland," said interior designer Shery West, who decorated two rooms for the wedding ceremony and reception in less than 24 hours.

While Camille was getting her hair and makeup done and taking photos, Jimmy was trying to contact about 100 people to invite them to the wedding.

"Everybody got called pretty well today. Your mom didn't know until 12:30 or 1," Jimmy told Camille.

"This is probably the best Valentine's Day I'll ever have," Camille said.
