Also, we have learned something happened unexpectedly after the wedding. Wednesday, we mentioned that the reception cost the TODAY Show about $100,000. But the total package of everything involving the wedding party and the couple's lengthy stay in New York was actually was worth about $500.000. All of this is money that the couple will need to claim on their tax return next April. So after the reception, the TODAY Show handed Leigh and Nick a check in the amount of $300,000 to cover all the taxes related to the wedding.
