Renowned openly radio personality Elvis Duran officially became a married man on 14th September 2019. He tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Alex Carr in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
By all means, the wedding between Elvis and now-husband Alex was a grand affair. Held at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, the ceremony featured a Mirarchi band, food trucks, and several market stalls.
Tasked with organizing the wedding, Mark Russo revealed the theme of the bash as very Day of the Dead-like. Admittedly, the event was the most exciting thing that he ever did.

Z100 New York – Elvis’ network – later officially broke the news of the radio personality and his partner zookeeper being engaged.
When Did Openly Gay Elvis Duran Came Out?
Before meeting Alex Carr, Elvis rarely opened about his gay identity. In 2015 PEOPLE interview, he explained,
“I just never talked about it. I was there to bring the fun and push the buttons. I never wanted it to become the ‘Elvis Is Gay’ show.”
Over time, Elvis had a change of heart. Feeling the need to share his personal experience, he eventually began talking about his dating life.
Elvis officially came out as a gay man in 2010. As far as the veteran RJ is concerned, he was “never in the closest.” Thus, he didn’t feel the pressure to come out from one.
