Alfredo and Monica Hernandez celebrated the New Year as the official “First Couple of 2016,” as the winners of the search by George Zimmer’s Generation Tux. The couple received the most votes to tie the knot on the main stage in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, with Zimmer as their officiant and the world as their wedding guests.

Generation Tux CEO and founder George Zimmer officiated the marriage of both the First Couple and the runner up couple live in Times Square. The First Couple signed their marriage certificate and shared their first kiss as husband and wife at the stroke of midnight.

“At Generation Tux, we believe that weddings and New Year’s Eve are two of the most magical moments in people’s lives,” said Zimmer. “With the search for the First Couple of 2016, we wanted to bring together both of these moments in one magical evening, and to kick off a new American tradition that we hope will last for years to come. We are so happy for both sets of newlyweds and to partake in this historical New Year’s moment.”
