A couple months ago, I started adding some of the workouts from Insanity into my workout routine. In case you aren’t familiar with it, it’s basically the new P90X but better in my opinion. The trainer leading the workouts in the videos is Shaun T, a very handsome and ripped 34-year-old fitness trainer and choreographer.
Shaun T started out as a dancer for Mariah Carey back in the day and was also a trainer at Equinox. He was approached by reps of Beachbody, LLC. that asked him to submit a video for a workout video, and then came Insanity. The trainer recently came out and announced that he and his longtime partner, Scott Blokker (who’s also gorgeous and ripped) got married. They make such a cute couple – wait till you see some of their photos below.
The wedding celebration was done by sa company called Sounds To Go Entertainment and they have detailed what took place in what sounds like a beautiful and very unforgettable evening.
“The evening—hosted by internationally known drag queen, Flava, at the Edison Ballroom, and dubbed “Midnight Love” with a 1930?s Chicago/Boardwalk Empire-esque theme—began with Shaun and a team of dancers performing routines to Katy Perry’s “Firework,” Rihanna’s “Where Have you Been,” and Bruno Mars’ “Marry You.” The ceremony also showcased a Broadway style musical performance, with live renditions of classics from “Wicked,” as an aerialist mesmerized the crowd, high above the ballroom. All of the performances were intermixed with video footage of Shaun & Scott talking about love, relationships, and sex (“sometimes you just gotta get it in”). The montage included a particularly heart wrenching segment where Scott describes growing up gay, and feeling out of place. Scott details the pain and uncertainty he felt throughout much of his adult life, that all seemed to dissolve upon meeting Shaun. This was one of the most poignant moments we have ever experienced at a wedding—as human beings we all subsist on love as if it were food or oxygen, and the marriage of Scott & Shaun reminded us all how important it is to be true what’s inside of us, and love deeply and completely.
The wedding itself was over the top, and extraordinary. The room was dressed up with thick, rich colors, and lighting. Upon arrival, all guests had their photo snapped in front of a movie premiere style step and repeat by STG owner, Mike Hernandez, and photographer extraordinaire, Melissa Dilger. The guests all went above, and beyond, dressing to fit the theme, and a common energy of excitement was present throughout. The atmosphere at the Edison Ballroom could only be described as “electric.” The house was packed with 250 guests all laughing, crying and cheering for Shaun as he presented this incredible show to Scott. Backstage Shaun told the crew that all he wanted to do that night was dance and look at his future husband. The entire crew was on board, and Shaun and his dancers shut it down from the beginning to the very end. After the ceremony, guests all relaxed and enjoyed the vibe in the Blokker Lavender Lounge, created by Sounds To Go.”
