Olympic Gold Medalist, Tara Lipinski, beautifully graces the cover of our 2018 Winter/Spring current issue and her dreamy wedding has a gorgeous editorial feature inside the pages. From her star studded guest list, to flowers that seem to go on for days, we couldn’t contain all the wonderment inside of our magazine. That’s why we’re bringing you a 6 part, in depth, exclusive look at Tara Lipinski’s dream wedding.
According to Tara, it was a complete surprise. “He (Todd Kapostasy) knows I am obsessed with anything Christmas and how much I love Christmas windows in the city,” Tara explained. So, Todd convinced The Plaza Hotel to allow him to take over a window. Not an easy task. He told Tara he knew of this special window and as they walked by this window she saw a painting of the two of them inside. He had a big painting made of him proposing to Tara in front of her home in California. “I was so shocked and by the time I turned to him he was down on one knee. One of the best days of my life!”
Surrounded by friends and family, Tara and Todd, celebrated the eve of their wedding at the beautiful Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. In a romantic outdoor setting, surrounded by South Carolina’s stunning low country. The party wined and dined then danced the night away.
Fellow Olympian and BFF, Johnny Weir took the bride for a twirl on the dance floor …

Beautiful couple. I actually met Tara Lipinski’s in Providence, Rhode Island at one of her ice skating shows. She was so sweet.
