After meeting in New York City while waiting to get into a nightclub, Randy and Sean spent 22 years building their relationship and family — including two daughters and a son — before finally marrying in front of 250 of their closest friends and family. “We tried to keep everything as timeless and classic as possible, so everyone in the wedding party wore black and white," Randy says. The reception had an elegant country flair, in keeping with its location at the couple's upstate New York home. The relaxed atmosphere started with the flowers: “I wanted whatever was in bloom that day in the Hudson Valley — peonies to poppies," Randy says.
