Lisa Vanderpump Officiates Her First Gay Wedding!
The ordained minister calls the affair an "emotional, exquisite day."
Last month, Lisa Vanderpump got to play a very important part in a special couple's lives. As an ordained minister, Lisa got to pronounce Magno and Dominic Salva as husband and husband!
The ceremony, which was kept under wraps until yesterday, took place in the garden of Lisa's new restaurant PUMP, with Lisa dressed in a regal pink and gray ceremonial robe. The grooms wore matching white tuxes and exchanged white gold rings co-designed by Lisa herself along with Sam Street and Jonathan Tack of Proposition Love Jewelry.
"Today I had the honour of officiating my first wedding at PUMP, beautiful couple entitled to equal rights. An emotional exquisite day!" Lisa tweeted on the day of the wedding. "Congratulations to Dominic and Magno who were married today, life is so much finer if you find someone to play with."
Lisa also exclusively told The Dish that the ceremony was "amazing." Jewelry designer Sam Street added that "Lisa Vanderpump was the icing on the 'wedding' cake. She is such a great advocate for our community."
As for the couple, they were ecstatic to have Lisa take part in their big day. "We were thrilled with Lisa’s generosity and invitation to have our wedding be her first official duty as a newly ordained Minister," the couple tells the Dish. "The ceremony in the PUMP garden was absolutely enchanting and these are memories that will last our lifetime.”
Lisa has long been an outspoken champion of LGBT rights. This year she received a star on the Palm Spring Walk of Stars to honor her advocacy and was also crowned Queen of the Halloween Carnaval. This weekend, she will also serve as the Celebrity Grand Marshal of the Palm Springs Festival of Lights.
