Wedding

Rezayazdi and Wendland

MIchael T. Rezayazdi and Milton W. Wendland were married at eight o’clock in the evening on Saturday, August 29th, 2015. The sunset ceremony was held poolside at Dante’s Key West resort in the Historic Seaport on the island of Key West, Florida. Susan Kent, friend of the grooms, officiated. The grooms entered in tuxedos from around the pool to greet family and friends, were united during the wedding ceremony they co-wrote, and immediately after they were pronounced married shed their tuxedos and took a “plunge into marriage” in the resort pool. Following the ceremony, their one hundred and thirty guests enjoyed the six-tiered candy-filled rainbow-themed cake, light fare food, drinks, dancing under the stars, and a special guest appearance by Key West drag queen Inga of Aqua Nightclub. The couple welcomed their guests to the island the night before the wedding at a private invitation-only show at the 801 Drag Cabaret on world-famous Duval Street in Key West.
