The newlyweds made their entrance at the altar to a love song written by Vaughan and exchanged their own vows before placing matching diamond-encrusted rings on each other’s fingers.
“When you’re part of the LGBTQ+ fam, not everything in the wedding space is for you yet,” said Vaughan. “The whole purpose of our wedding is to come together and join the two of us together, join our families together and start a new family.”
“And all that, as we were going through this process, we realized that our wedding is really also more than just about us,” added Bennett. “It’s about the entire community.”
The pair reportedly opted for “gender-neutral” black and white tuxedos for the wedding party, while the other guests and floral arrangements stuck to a white theme in honour of Bennett’s late mother.
RuPaul’s Drag Race star Jackie Cox emceed at the reception, where the guests were seated at a round table to enjoy a Mexican feast and a firework display synchronised to music from The Greatest Showman.
“It was honestly a dream wedding!” gushed Bennet. “We kept having to stop and remind ourselves that we weren’t on a movie set, but this was actually our real life. If you had told me this was one of my Hallmark movie sets, I would have believed it. It was that perfect.”
Bennett and Vaughan announced their engagement back in November 2020. They were the first gay couple to feature on the cover of The Knot.
