“I do” …round two. Vanderpump Rules personalities Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney-Schwartz had a second wedding celebration this week in Las Vegas… and this time, it’s legal.
E! News previously reported that the reality couple obtained a second marriage license in Sin City. The news came after singer Lance Bass claimed the two might not actually be legally married because their initial paperwork was filled out incorrectly.
The newlyweds were joined by close friends and Pump Rules co-stars Stassi Schroeder, Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval, Brittany Cartwright, Jax Taylor, and Lala Kent for their second celebration, which was documented on Instagram.
Schroeder’s boyfriend Beau Clark posted an Instagram Story video from Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas with what appeared to be pink rose petals covering an aisle. Schroder also shared an Instagram Story sitting between Schwartz and Maloney-Schwartz saying, “I’m in-between newlyweds!”
The crew also shared photos of themselves lounging by the pool and getting ready for a night out dressed in cowboy and cowgirl attire. Maloney-Schwartz was also seen blowing out candles on a cake that read “Congratulations! Again!”
According to People, the couple’s second wedding will be featured on the upcoming eighth season of the Bravo show. “It’s all being filmed for next season of Vanderpump Rules, it’s a huge chunk of Tom and Katie’s storyline,” a source said. “They never had their marriage paperwork properly filled out, so they figured a trip to Las Vegas with their friends would be a great way to fix that.”
Pump Rules chronicled the duo’s relationship since the first season, including Schwartz’s proposal and their romantic outdoor wedding, which was officiated by Lisa Vanderpump. “[She] was amazing by the way,” Schwartz previously told The Knot of his boss and series co-star. “She was so good.”

The couple did not have a designated maid of honor or best man, though Schwartz had a groomsmaid, his castmate Ariana Madix.
While their nuptials did take place in their home state of California, it was a destination wedding of sorts. “It wasn’t local where we were married,” Maloney-Schwartz told The Knot of their venue set in the middle of the woods. “We sourced everything locally. We used local florists and caterers.”
In addition to their unique location, the couple opted to avoid tradition with their reception, too. “Sitting down and doing a seating arrangement, we didn’t do that,” Maloney noted. “[We tried] to cut corners where we could. Also, we wanted to feel inclusive. People to sit where they wanted to sit with [whomever] they wanted to sit [beside].”
When reflecting on the day, Schwartz gushed about his wife. “She was glowing… She really was,” he told us. “I was like, ‘Oh man, she’s beautiful and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.’”
Schwartz and Maloney-Schwartz aren’t the only Pump Rules couple to walk down the aisle this year. In June, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor tied the knot in a fairytale-themed ceremony in Kentucky, which is also rumored to be featured on the show’s upcoming season.
