Well this sounds like it was a great time:
Kelsey Grammer’s bride (his fourth) wore white — on the Great White Way! The actor’s rep tells UsMagazine.com that Grammer, 56, wed girlfriend Kayte Walsh Friday at NYC’s Longacre Theater. Grammer and British flight attendant Walsh, 29, exchanged vows on the stage — covered with white candles — where the actor just wrapped his Tony-nominated run in the Broadway musical La Cage Aux Folles. First-time bride Walsh wore a long, satin and chiffon gown by Peter Langer for Mark Ingram, according to Access Hollywood.
Who married the couple? A drag queen! The New York Post reports that actor Terry Lavell, who performed with Grammer in La Cage, has a license to officiate weddings. Among also those joining the pair on stage were Grammer’s grown daughter, actress Spencer Grammer, who read a poem, Kayte’s brother, who sang a song, and Grammer’s 5-year-old son Jude (whose mom is Kelsey’s ex-wife Camille Grammer). Kelsey and Camille’s daughter Mason, 8, reportedly didn’t attend the bash.
After taking their bridal vows and bows, the newly hitched couple, shielded by the day’s rain with umbrellas, boarded a white Mercedes. They will greet their guests later on Friday evening at a luxe reception held at the Plaza Hotel’s famed Grand Ballroom.
On the menu, obtained by TMZ: Ginger prawns, filet mignon au poivre, slow-roasted turkey breast with chorizo stuffing, and braised short-ribs. And when it’s time for dessert, the bride and groom will feast on a custom-made concoction by famed wedding cake designer Sylvia Weinstock.
“They’re going to have a delicious carrot cake,” Weinstock told UsMagazine.com. “It’s about 55 inches tall. A grand cake, decorated with sugar flowers, in shades of white and cream.” Weinstock added that the cake is filled with cream cheese, caramel, and coconut. “It’s going to be a fantastic showpiece,” said Weinstock, who met with Walsh, Grammer and Walsh’s mother to design the cake.
“She wants everything to be perfect and look gorgeous and wonderful,” she said of Walsh. “She’s thrilled…They’re a great couple and I see them having a great life together.” Just two weeks ago, Grammer finalized his divorce from third wife Camille after pushing to quickly expedite the split in order to marry Kayte. The disintegration of Kelsey and Camille’s 13-year marriage played out on the first season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Camille, 42, nearly quit the Bravo show mid-season because of the marital strife, she told Us.
Indeed, on the season finale, the former Playboy model wept to a friend about discovering her husband’s other woman while visiting him in NYC Malibu, Calif. The Frasier star first filed for divorce in July — and stepped out with Walsh, whom he met in NYC while performing La Cage, soon thereafter. (Walsh sadly suffered a miscarriage in September, a rep confirmed to Us.)
Grammer’s rep confirmed their engagement to Us on Dec. 6, noting the duo had “been engaged for a while. I’m doing great,” Grammer gushed of his newest love on Live with Regis and Kelly on Jan. 27. “This year’s journey is about enhancing love in my life, and Kayte is responsible for a great deal of that.”
