NYC Couple Has Spectacular Broadway Wedding
Saturday June 7th was a spectacular day for Houston residents Brian Hampton and Keith Huckabay. The partners of 13 years, who consider NYC their second home, got married at Cop Cot in Central Park surrounded by family and friends. Some of these friends happened to double as Broadway stars, so the wedding was inevitably filled with singing, dancing, and showtunes.
At the ceremony, Anthony Wilkinson (My Big Gay Italian Wedding, My Big Gay Italian Funeral) officiated, while Kyle Dean Massey (Pippin, Next to Normal, Wicked, Xanadu) sang a special arrangement that he created of "Till There Was You" from The Music Man.
Following the service, Brian, Keith, and their guests had dinner at Joe Allen Restaurant before heading over to 54 Below for the reception. Alice Ripley (Sunset Boulevard, Side Show, Next to Normal) surprised the newlyweds with a special version of "Empire State of Mind" that was adapted exclusively for the party. Keith also performed a song with The Skivvies, which everyone raved about.
To top off the perfect Broadway wedding, Brian and Keith attended the Tony Awards and Gala on Sunday for their honeymoon. Thanks to all the incredible people that were involved, the couple considers their wedding weekend "the most memorable and wonderful weekend of [their] lives!"
