After eight months of planning and a lot of logistical drama, Million Dollar Listing New York star Fredrik Eklund's wedding to beau Derek Kaplan is finally happening! And we've got a sneak peek at the island —yes, island—the real estate maven rented out for his posh nuptials in the Florida Keys.
"For my wedding, I'm going big. And when I say big, I mean huge," Eklund gushes. "I rented an entire island. No, an entire island!"
So just how much cash is Eklund shelling out for the lush affair? "All in all I'm spending around half-a-million dollars," he says. But he says he knows the cost is well worth it: "This is going to be the best week of my life. And there's no price tag for that—I'll have memories forever."
In the clip below, watch as the couple (and their adorable dogs) set off to explore the Woodpecker Suites where they'll be staying during their affair—an event that's all the more special now that the Supreme Court has struck down the Defense of Marriage Act.
Last month, Eklund was elated when DOMA fell, meaning he and Kaplan now have access to federal benefits in states where same-sex marriage is legal. "I high-kicked so hard, I feel on my back!" he told the Dish.
