Ron and Jon Tie a Spectacular Knot

Posted By on Tue, Oct 23, 2007 at 11:13 AM

On Sunday night, Jon Fulton Adams and Ron Megee got married in a spectacular affair. JFA, a fashion and costume designer, and Ron, an actor who founded Late Night Theatre, are known for hosting creative theme parties in their West Bottoms loft. So it was no surprise that their big night incorporated an Edwardian-Victorian-goth theme, a touching ceremony that made most everyone cry and – of course – a stage show with drag and burlesque performances at the reception.

The ceremony -- which Ron described in his vows as a “one-night only” show -- took place at the Coterie Theater. The wedding party dressed in either black jackets with tails or corset dresses with billowing skirts, which they accessorized with pheasant feather corsages. Ron and JFA both sported top hats and tuxes; Ron had a black lace veil hanging from the front of his hat. De De Deville, who rocked the ringlet curls and a Victorian dress with a bustle, carried Atticus, the couple’s wire terrier. He served as the ring-bearer and his little stubby tail wagged excitedly as he went down the aisle.

After they were pronounced husband and husband, we headed to their loft for the reception. Some highlights of the night:
