Back in June, The Plaza, whose neoclassical Grand Ballroom is one of the most expensive, lavish, and coveted hotel wedding venues in all the land, hosted its first-ever-in-106-years gay wedding. Now, you can witness Jay & Tony's ceremony for yourself in all its fabulous -- and in many ways, quite traditional--glory (heck, it is The Plaza!).

Here's the recently released wedding video, shot by John Armendariz of NewYorkFilmworks. We love how it starts off with a chuckle as the priest awkwardly stutters, "Well, it's a little unusual for me to be the only one in white at one of these things!".

But we warn you, have a tissue in hand--this one's a tearjerker!

Also check out the storybook images by "NYC's most sought-after" wedding photog, Brian Hatton. Not only did the couples' garden-themed reception look like a blast, but that cake (baked up by Food Network star Ron Ben Israel) is to-die-for gorgeous!

You warned me

... and still I teared up! What an amazing video with an amazing family. Watching this I wonder how somebody can deny other people the happiness of getting married. I am glad I live in a country where I can marry the man of my dreams. Even as I guy I can tear up like a little girl and I will do at our wedding in August.
