As the Official Tuxedo of Times Square New Year’s Eve, Generation Tux was on hand as the Ball dropped in New York City, helping revelers – and the two finalist couples – kick off 2016 in style. Generation Tux CEO and Founder George Zimmer, whose decades of experience in the tuxedo and suit business have played a role in thousands of weddings worldwide, 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.
