Smith—who married his partner in 2010—used social media to pick the 101 couples to be married in the ceremony. The first 101 couples who tweeted at him with the hashtag #101GayWeddings were entered into the contest. Selected couples were invited to bring two family members.
Following the wedding, newlyweds will dine on dishes from a handful of South Florida chefs and get down at a dance party featuring DJ Chi Chi Larue.
