Now that we've watched Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney-Schwartz say "I do," we wanted to get the scoop from the newlyweds themselves about every unforgettable moment from their dreamy August nuptials. From the vibe to the wardrobe to the party, the Vanderpump Rules couple took The Daily Dish inside their California wedding. "Our wedding was everything and more than what I thought it would be," Katie shared. "I worked my ass off. I stressed out. I cried — a lot — but it was so worth it 'cause once we got to the venue and I just wanted to savor every moment."
Looking for more details? Well, pour yourself a glass of Champagne and get ready to celebrate one more time.
1. The Vibe
"I feel like it's stale saying this cause I've been telling everybody the same thing, but it really felt like a fairytale," Tom shared. "It felt like like a dream come true because we've been through so much together. We really have — highs and lows. It was like everything we'd been through was worth it and it was dreamy."
2. The Wardrobe
"I wanted a vintage, almost classic look," Katie shared about her lacey Zuhair Murad-designed gown. Meanwhile, Tom opted to go for something untraditional in the form of a dark green and black jacket that Katie called "just perfect."
3. The First Dance
The couple chose something kind of traditional for their first dance as husband and wife in the form of Nat King Cole's "L-O-V-E." And now we know why. "So like six months into our relationship, we kind of took like a mini-breakup, break for a week, and in that time I was super emotional and it started occurring to me how special he was and I think because he wanted to comfort me when I was crying and so he started singing [it] and I was like, 'Damn, you're perfect. You're the one for me.'"
From there, the couple took some lessons just so they'd look smooth on the dance floor. Tom said, "We took a lesson because we didn't want to be overly polished, but we wanted to have a few moves up our sleeve."
4. Lisa Vanderpump's Role Officiating
"I mean she was our first and only choice to officiate," Katie said. "We're not really religious people ... and knowing that Lisa was ordained and she's been a huge supporter and advice-giver for us for so many years now, it felt special and memorable and personal for us to have her be the one. There's no one else, not even Jax, that came to mind for that moment and just having it be someone that knew us personally and our journey and all that was important to us."
5. Their Vows
"You want it to be heartfelt and sentimental, but you also want to please the crowd," Tom said of penning vows. Well it worked and Katie loved what he did. "I will say his vows trump mine big time," she said. "I was like, 'I have to follow that? Everyone's already crying; I'm crying. I can't even read. I had my little notebook and I lost my place and I was still crying from his, so I started winging it."
6. The Reception
Katie recalled, "I remember during the reception just stopping and looking around and being like, 'Oh my God, this is a fairytale.' It could not have been better. We all had so much fun at our wedding. I think maybe I had the best time."
The couple and their pals will reunite again for the Season 5 reunion, kicking off Monday at 9/8c.
