Filmmaker Jon Armendariz spoke with Out magazine about documenting the first same-sex wedding at the Plaza Hotel in New York. (The video for Jason and Todd’s sumptuous ceremony, above, first went viral in February.)
“I really wanted to highlight this family’s joy of finally making it official,” says Armendariz. “I particularly wanted to highlight the reaction of Jason’s son during the ceremony, which was particularly moving. The sight of a little boy crying tears of joy during the wedding vows is possibly the most visceral reaction I’ve seen in any wedding film.”
Oh lord, here come the waterworks.
