ABC News reporter Gio Benitez tied the knot with his fiancé Tommy DiDario in Miami on Saturday in a wedding attended by 160 guests at Walton House in Miami. The wedding comes seven months after a romantic proposal at the Eiffel Tower in Paris which went viral on social media.
DiDario is a lifestyle and menswear blogger a well as a writer and actor. Many news and media personalities attended and the couple has a large presence on Instagram (it’s how they met), so naturally it was well-documented.
Both grooms wore J.Crew tuxes and custom-made ties by David Fin for their big day, with Benitez opting for a midnight navy combination and DiDario donning a chambray charcoal ensemble.
After their first kiss as husbands, the duo got the party started with their first dance to Il Volo’s cover of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from Disney’s The Lion King.
The couple was feted by many members of Benitez’s extended news family, including Sam Champion, Shepard Smith, Martha Raddatz and Kevin Ozebek, Benitez’s best man. Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, publicist Howard Bragman and Broadway director and producer Richard Jay-Alexander were also in attendance.
From the looks of it, a good time was had by all at the beautiful wedding. A few of the photos posted publicly to Instagram, below. If you’d like to see more, just follow the hashtags.
