How to describe Tommy and Zach’s wedding… gah! I can’t formulate a sentence with worthy adjectives that would do this day justice… so I guess I will just start at the beginning and tell you about the whole amazing day to the best of my abilities.

First, I suppose that I should preface this blog by sharing how excited I was about this day and this couple. I met these two sweethearts in Cozumel at their friend’s Alisha and Jeff’s destination wedding (which you can check out here if you’d like!). There was a lot of drinking and dancing and fun! Then we met up again to talk about the big day and what they had envisioned…. the words ‘confetti cannon’ and ‘Gatsby’ were mentioned. Then we all hung out after their engagement session… for hours! I just knew that this was going to be a spectacular celebration of love!

We started the day out with each groom playing their own music (*NSYNC was playing at one point, and it’s been stuck in my head ever since) and hanging out with their friends, dressed up and looking glamorous. After a delicious lunch from Blues City Deli (Kyle’s favorite – he was so excited about this treat) we made our way across the casino floor to Judy’s Lounge to capture Tommy and Zach seeing each other for the first time that day. The casino, bustling with people and lights, appeared to be uninhabited as the two shared this intimate moment, their eyes locking and fixating on each other and drowning out the noise around them.

The ceremony was so moving. There were tears on stage and in the crowd, tears of joy and tears of triumph. Their officiant spoke of overcoming obstacles and of devotion and commitment. The whole thing really felt like a fairy tale. After they kissed, they both threw up their held hands in triumph and their loved ones went wild. I couldn’t stop smiling.

The reception was SO MUCH FUN. After some funny and sweet speeches from their maid of honor and best man and a VERY entertaining performance from Tommy’s father and sisters, the two had their first dance as husband and husband as confetti cannons surprised guests and ushered them all to the floor. Friends and family danced nonstop and relentlessly showered each other and the newlyweds with confetti! It felt like a wedding fit for Gatsby and the best idea of New Years Eve that I could imagine, so I feel a quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald is appropriate for wrapping this up.

“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”
The Great Gatsby

 

We wish them all the love and luck in the world and will be gushing about this day for many years to come!
