Kris and Wesley Are Officially Getting Married!!

So, an amazing thing has happened…Kris and Wesley are officially getting married!

We are in shock…we just won all-expenses paid wedding for July, 2014! Same-sex marriage was passed into law in the state of New Jersey this past Fall, 2013.   With the recent repeal of DOMA (that terrible so-called Defense of Marriage Act), this means we now can have marriage equality on both the state and Federal level.  This is huge!

Let me tell you how this all came to be…

We found out about this amazing wedding giveaway contest from a friend.   The contest was hosted by Rothweiller Event Design and there were 9 couples who were selected as finalists.  To be considered, you were asked to submit your ‘story.’  Danielle Rothweiller, owner of Rothweiller Event Design, along with 11 vendors, including the beautiful Wilshire Grand Hotel in beautiful West Orange, NJ – all read each couple’s story; they viewed a brief video that each couple was also ask to submit…and then each vendor voted on who they felt should win the amazing prize.

On January 9th, at the Wilshire Grand Hotel, the winning couple was announced.  And Wesley and I won!  We are beyond excited and now preparing for one of the biggest events of 2014!  We are submitting our story to Ellen, plus a few reality shows…big things are coming in 2014!!

Here is the story of Kris and Wesley that we submitted…

Kris and Wesley: A Journey of Love


  • What brought me here was your dad’s speech on YouTube. What an amazing man your dad is! And what a beautiful story you have!

      • Kris and Wesley we are proud parents of several puppies. How many dogs do you guys have? We have 5.I

        Thanks….Julie and Treva from Boise, Idaho

      • Hi Julie (and Treva!). Love it!! We have a couple of super sweet rescues who are brother and sister. They are half dachshund and half lab! Their names are Ebenezer and Florence, but we call them Eb and Flo!! Can’t imagine life without our 4-legged furry babies!!!

  • Your love story is amazing and it resonates with your loving and caring personality ❤️ It’s incredible to hear about your journey and you both deserved that wedding!

  • I just finished reading your story, beside thinking it would make a great movie, I think it’s a great story. My
    brother and his partner spent 27 years together but were married for only three years. My brother passed away
    Nov. 2, 2017 quite suddenly after having surgery. Ron, Johnny’s partner is very distraught, but at least they had
    a good life together. Thank you for sharing it!!!!

    With Sincerity and Wishing You Both a long Wonderful life Together.

    • Thank you so much, Barbara! We really appreciate it. So, so very sorry to hear about the passing of your brother. So sad. Love and prayers for your family, especially Ron. Much love to you!! Please stay in touch! xoxo Kris & Wesley
