After a "ring shot" (the camera does a nice little zoom on Isaac's flashy stone), Isaac explains to Wendy how he and his boyfriend of six years, Arnold Germer, made the decision to get married. After New York passed the law legalizing gay marriage this past summer, like several other male fashion designers (Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra, Michael Kors), he and Germer decided to take the plunge.
But then the reality of a wedding -- at least, a high-profile fashion wedding -- set in. Isaac said to Wendy:
"People have ideas. 'You have to have a series of parties, Vera Wang has to be called, that lady who makes the wedding cakes... Sylvia Weinstock -- like, start now!' So we were terrified and we decided to just elope to City Hall."
