Boone, Oakley exchange wedding vows

Boone1The holidays are becoming distinctly gay-themed in the ad world. First we got the TBWA\Chiat\Day party invite. Now, we’ve stumbled upon footage from John Boone and David Oakley’s wedding (click on “About” and then “The Wedding” to see the videos). Yes, the creative directors at Boone/Oakley in Charlotte, N.C., have tied the knot to celebrate five years in business together. “Oakley looked stunning in his formal gown, which his wife, Claire, helped him pick out and get fitted,” says the press release. “Says David Oakley, now David Oakley-Boone, ‘Today, with sadness, I close one chapter in my life. And I begin this new one with my beloved partner John, humbled by a deep sense of joy and wonder.’ ” We’re humbled, if that’s the word, by the video that shows Oakley, on a bathroom break, navigating his way around his wedding dress at the urinal.
