After getting sidetracked by a terrible accident last year, the big day is almost here for two popular former Biggest Loser contestants.

Sam Poueu and Stephanie Anderson will finally tie the knot this Saturday in San Francisco, more than seven months after he almost died after falling four stories from a building in San Francisco.

"With what has happened over the last 7 months, we've had to refocus our energy and time," the couple write on their wedding website. "Now here we are just a short time away from our BIG day and we cannot be more anxious and excited to join together as husband and wife."

Poueu has been in physical therapy in recent months, following his accident in San Francisco last Sept. 3. He was in critical condition for some time, but eventually recovered.

On her Facebook page, Anderson posted a photo of the couple's wedding bands, engraved with the words, "I Choose Us."

The couple met on season 9 of the NBC weight-loss reality show in 2009. Poueu, a former security guard, lost 134 lbs. on the show to drop to 238 lbs.

He surprised Anderson by proposing to her during the filming of a Biggest Loser special in October 2010.
