Celebrity chef Guy Fieri, host of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, on Saturday officiated over a group of weddings for gay couples during the annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival.

The event, titled 101 Gay Weddings, was hosted by out Chicago chef Art Smith and took place at Miami Beach's James Royal Palm Hotel.

Smith told the AP that he decided on 101 couples after the movie 101 Dalmatians to highlight Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi's ardent opposition to marriage equality.

“We have our own Curella De Vil, Pam Bondi,” Smith said. “She was determined that she was going to prevent equality from coming to Florida.”

Florida became the 36th state where gay couples can marry in January.

“For a state known for sunshine, it was living in the darkness when it came to LGBT rights and it was important to acknowledge that,” Smith said.

After the ceremony, the couples were treated to a gourmet meal finished off by a seven-tier gold and silver cake from Duff Goldman, star of Food Network's Ace of Cakes.
