When Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz wed over the summer, they knew there was only one person who could handle officiating the ceremony. And that person just so happened to be the one and only Lisa Vanderpump.
"It was kind of our idea, but it was my dream," Tom recently joked to Martha Stewart Weddings about enlisting the Vanderpump Rules boss to handle the role. He also added that her role as surrogate mom to the crew also influenced their decision to include her in such a major way. "We don't have our families in the city, at least most of us. She's like our mother figure, she's our mom in L.A."
Katie noted that it was also Lisa's longtime support of the pair that made her an obvious choice. "Lisa's someone who's been close to us and supportive in our relationship," she said.
Tom noted that she also met another requirement. He said, "And you know, she's ordained, so why not?"
