Susanne Eman isn’t like any other bride. She’s the only one who weighs 800 pounds and eats 30,000 calories a day.
Eman is currently on a quest to become the fattest woman ever, beating the 1200 pound mark once held by Rosalie Bradford, who died in 2006. Read the WWN article on her here.
She also has found someone who loves her just the way she is: 35-year-old chef Parker Clack. The couple met online.

For the record, Eman’s gown will have to fit around her 107-and-a-half inch waistline — that’s nine feet around.
Although it would possible for Eman to go the whole nine yards with her dress — literally and figuratively — she is taking some steps to make it so Goff doesn’t run out of fabric entirely.
“I want to go sleeveless because it’s going to be summer time,” said Eman.
