Burke’s longtime pal Remini helmed the festivities, which included karaoke (“I cannot sing!” says Burke with a laugh), scrapbooking and toilet paper wedding gown design.

“It is so clever,” says Burke of the TP gowns. “And the dresses are actually really good. I was shocked!”

Guests like former Dancing pro Kym Herjavec enjoyed a brunch spread of bagels and lox, waffles and croissants, as well as a sprinkle explosion cake as they toasted the bride-to-be.

“Leah is a perfectionist and pays such close attention to detail,” says Burke. “That’s why we get along! She put so much work into it because she wanted it to be special and for me to have a good time.”
