Tiny Tim Khaury and Miss Victoria (Vicki) May Budinger, 17, will be married by the Reverend William Glenesk, a Presbyterian Minister, in a non-denominational service on NBC Television Network's colorcast of "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson," Wednesday, Dec. 17, 1969. The program will be taped at 6:30 P.M. and telecast on the NBC Television Network from 11:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. NYT.
The groom will not see the bride on the day of the wedding until the service takes place. Tiny Tim's best man will be Joseph Cappelluzzo, his manager. Joseph's brother, James, and brother-in-law, Santo Scupelliti, will be ushers.
Three of the bride's sisters will be in the wedding party-- Mrs. Gene Bramlett will be matron of honor, and Allene and Tracy Budinger will be bridesmaids. The bride's father, Allan Budinger will give his daughter away.
Miss Budinger will wear a hand-made Victorian-style, off-white gown of peau de soie with collar and sleeves of lace valued at about $2,500. She will wear a borrowed antique cameo, carry a new Bible and wear a blue garter.
The groom has selected a black silk velvet walking length frock coat reflecting the Victorian period of dress. The coat's satin lapels frame a ribbed satin vest. His black cape, turn-of-the-century top hat and hand-carved walking stick complete the outfit.
The ten-thousand tulips decorating the wedding set were imported from Holland. Tulips are maintained there at a low temperature and then forced to bloom at the desired time.
The studio audience of 268 will be made up of friends and members of the families of the bride and groom.
The Reverend Glenesk is minister of the Spencer Memorial Church of Brooklyn Heights, N.Y.

What is the back story of why they got married on the Tonight Show of all places, and why Johnny Carson wanted the event on his show? Just wondering...

creepy as hell
I know Miss Vicki in real life! She was my first and continued customer of the jewelry that I make. I had no idea that this is who she is! I absolutely love her. She is such a sweet heart :) She lives really close to me and I've been inside her house and everything <3 She is absolutely amazing.

Joseph cappelluzzo, his manager and best man, is my grandfather.. we have at jacket with a jewel encrusted ukulele on the back that belonged to tiny Tim at our house, and my grandfather has his original sheet music hanging up on the walls. so cool to see this video.. I just showed it to my grandpa.. he had a stroke a few months ago, and has since been bedridden, this made him smile for the first time since he's been back from the hospital. 💜 I remember my grandfather and grandmother were part of an interview after tiny Tim passed away. I was trying to find that interview when I found this video.. so glad I found it :)
Nothing this kewl ever happens on late night TV anymore. ☺

All we get to see is the back of their heads.  Someone at NBC didn't know how to film a wedding.

I cant believe she was 17 and he was 37!!! They freaking met at a department store 6 months prior to this.
