Before the men exchanged vows, the grooms' fathers spoke eloquently about their love for their sons.

The couple also wrote their own vows.

"You are my anchor that doesn't weigh me down but gives me something to hold on to," Sonny told Will during his vows. "Our life together is the greatest adventure of my life. I love you so much."

Will replied: "I didn't believe that I'd ever find any kind of love, let alone the love I found with you."
