I was so thrilled to head to Madison, Wisconsin for the site of this epic gay wedding as two grooms tied the knot. Chris & Roy said their nuptials in a formal statehouse ceremony, followed by a reception at the industrial TinSmith venue. Dressed to the nines in custom tuxes, they celebrated 10 years of dating with a beautiful ceremony that was attended by family and friends. It was a joyous occasion filled with love and laughter as the two grooms said “I do”. It was truly an unforgettable event that will be remembered for years to come!
When Roy and Chris decided to tie the knot, they wanted their wedding to be unique and special. To bring their vision to life, they chose the TinSmith, a whimsical industrial venue in downtown Madison Wisconsin and filled it with decor details that were both meaningful and charming. From blue gingham tablecloths to tin bbq trays and star wars accents, the decor was a perfect blend of modern sophistication and personal touches. These two grooms certainly had an eye for detail when it came to making sure that their special day was reflective of their style and personalities! From the decorations to the music, these grooms made sure that everything was perfect – even saving bbq bottles of their favorite sauces to use as decor!
To top it off, they added a plant photo wall (built by Chris himself!) for guests to take pictures with their friends as well as favors for them to take home as a reminder of the special day. Together these details created an unforgettable atmosphere that truly celebrated the love between two grooms.
The epic reception with Blue Water Kings Band was an unforgettable experience for the grooms and their guests. The music was lively and vibrant, creating an atmosphere of joy and celebration. As the grooms celebrated their wedding day with friends and family, the Blue Water Kings Band played a selection of their classic hits, ensuring that everyone had a fantastic time.
The band’s performance was truly remarkable and made the wedding reception one to remember. Every song they played had everyone singing along with them and dancing in delight. The band’s energy was contagious, making it an amazing experience for all those present at the wedding reception. If you’re considering live music, this is your sign to do it!
Thanks for allowing me to join in your epic celebration, Chris & Roy! And thank you to the LGBTQ+ supportive vendors that helped bring this epic gay wedding to reality!
