A Song for Christmas (starring Kevin McGarry and Becca Tobin)
“Pop superstar Adelaide Kay is so fed up with her controlling manager that she sneaks off the tour bus after their latest squabble. Though exhilarated to be free, she finds herself stranded in the freezing cold of a Pennsylvania winter, with no money and no plan. A local family, the Lapps, take her in. They know the true meaning of the season, even if they’re close to losing their dairy farm. No one in the family recognizes Adelaide except Dillon, the oldest son. He figures she’s the ticket to fast cash and plots to snap photos of Adelaide around the farm and sell them to the tabs. What he doesn’t plan, however, is their mutual attraction. As they get to know each other, Dillon has two realizations: profiteering from invading Adelaide’s privacy is wrong and his uptight girlfriend is not the one for him. When Adelaide performs a song, which Dillon’s kid sister wrote, a lot of money is earned which aids the Lapps and other strapped farmers.”
The star and her beau got hitched in the mountains—complete with a totally personal ceremony officiated by Jane Lynch!
As soon as Glee star and LadyGang podcast host Becca Tobin said “yes” to Zach Martin’s proposal, the two hopped on a plane for a weekend getaway to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. “It was a bucket-list trip. Zach loves it there, and we’d always wanted to go together,” says Becca of the unpretentious ski town. “And as soon as we got to Amangani, we knew it was where we wanted to get married.” They didn’t waste any time, and decided to get married at the property on December 3rd, 2016—just two months away. While most brides would shy away from such a short time to plan, Becca and Zach embraced it. “Zach plans events for a living. He’s so organized and has great taste, so it was great to pass the baton to him!” the bride reveals. “And a short timeframe meant we made decisions quickly.”
Amangani’s size meant limiting the guest list, but the timing didn’t: “We were worried people wouldn’t be able to make it on such short notice, but nearly everyone we wanted to have there was able to come, which was really amazing,” says Becca. 80 guests joined the couple in the mountains of Jackson Hole for a cozy and intimate snow-covered celebration. The party was simple and fuss-free, but a hotel buy-out meant it also lasted all night. And with Jane Lynch officiating, Becca’s Glee cast-mates in tow, and the LadyGang co-hosts on the dance floor, it was a party you’ll wish you’d been invited to! Carrie Patterson’s stunning photos give us a peek into Zach and Becca’s romantic mountaintop celebration.
Becca almost wore her mother’s wedding dress, but the garden-casual style wasn’t quite right for the bride’s wintery plans. “I visited a few boutiques, but everything I tried felt like ‘insert bride here’—until I went to LOHO,” she says. Becca fell in love with designs by Odylyne: The Ceremony, but still couldn’t quite find The One. “Christy, the owner of LOHO, asked if I’d considered a custom gown. I worked with her and Stephanie, the designer, to pick what I liked from each dress and put together something one-of-a-kind.” The finished result was an off-the-shoulder gown with floral beading, lace, and sheer bell sleeves. “Seeing the ideas come off the paper and come to life was crazy. It was the most beautiful dress I’d ever seen!” says the happy bride, who paired her gown with a sleek chignon and dramatic emerald earrings.
The ceremony took place looking out of the hotel’s floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests sat on wooden benches topped with white sheepskin rugs, and fresh blooms served as a makeshift altar. “I loved the way the greenery crept up the stone column,” says Becca.
Pals like Lea Michele, Keltie Knight, and Jenna Ushkowitz were among the guests. Says Becca, “It was actually Lea’s idea to ask Jane Lynch to officiate. I’ve always really looked up to her, and we have gotten so close over the years. When I texted her to ask if she would do it, she immediately sent back a screenshot of her being ordained online!”
Zach was the next one down the aisle, and the guests erupted in cheers. “I’ve never seen anything like it, but everyone stood up and cheered, laughed, and screamed for the groom!” says Becca.
