CBS "Early Show” covers Kunkel triple wedding

It seems that getting married in a rare triple wedding at Old St. Joseph Church on Oct. 9 isn’t enough excitement for Katie, Claire and Helen Kunkel.

The women, three of four daughters of St. Norbert president Thomas Kunkel and his wife, Deb, also will appear on “The Early Show” on CBS just two days before their joint nuptials to talk about the wedding. Their fiancés and youngest sister, Grace – maid of honor three times over – will join them in the Oct. 7 spot, for which all are traveling to New York.

“The Early Show” also plans to have cameras at the wedding in order to air a report the following week on the ceremony itself.

“I’m going to be a rock, because that’s just me, I’m steady,” Kunkel says of the impending triple wedding, tongue firmly in cheek. “But it is a little anxiety-inducing, that’s true.”

“There will be a box of Kleenex under our seats just in case,” Deb says. “We’re going to try to hold it together, but I don’t know that either one of us is going to make it. Even now, just talking about it, I get emotional.”

The Kunkels say they’re really looking forward to the wedding day – one they know their family, some 350 guests and a national television audience will never forget.
