Want to know a bit more about the man who inspired Martin Short? Here are five fun facts about him below:

He's the Real-Life Franck Eggelhoffer
Yes, that Franck: Martin Short's indelible character from Father of the Bride was fully based on the real-life Kevin Lee. In fact, the actor even interviewed Kevin face-to-face to get inspiration for the character.

He's an A-List Wedding Planner...
Long before Angelina Jolie or Justin Theroux came into the picture, Kevin planned Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s fabulous Malibu wedding. He’s also oversaw the nuptials of Drew Barrymore and Tom Green, Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman, as well as Adam Sandler’s engagement party.

...and a Go-To for Major Events
Kevin’s specialty has always been flowers. Dubbed "the King of Floral Productions," Kevin and his company, LA Premier, have done arrangements for the Grammys, the Oscars, and the Emmys.

He's Far from Frugal
During RHOBH Season 2, Kevin and Lisa often butted heads over whether or not the wedding of Lisa's daughter Pandora would top the million-dollar price tag. And although Kevin confessed that the most expensive wedding he’s ever planned cost a whopping $8 million, he has said that if he were ever to get married, he would spend more than that.

He's Planned Send-Offs for Hollywood Royalty
While he’s famous for throwing extraordinary weddings, Kevin has also brought his fabulous touch to some high-profile funerals, including those of music legends Michael Jackson and Frank Sinatra.
