The Los Angeles Times carried two stories about a gay couple I actually know: first their pre-wedding plans and emotions, and then the actual wedding day shared with many of their friends. 

Below are the links for both stories, and for a very sweet slideshow complete with music and narration by the happy grooms.  Note: you'll need a Flash Player to view the slideshow.

Congratulations, Kevin and Paul!  And congratulations to all couples united in committed love.

What a lovely story. How wonderful for your friends. Thanks for sharing this. I only wish the rest of the country would step up to the plate and do the right thing.

(Delayed reply due to brain sprain!)

It's been over a month since the ceremony and they are still together - Here in California that counts for something *snicker*

Thanks for checking out their story!

Wow - I'm a little misty after seeing that slideshow. I'm happy for them and everyone who have found their partner!

Yah, I was a bit misty myself after viewing it. A non-gay, non-political friend told me that she registered to vote after reading the articles so that she can have a voice in the California election in Nov. (which has yet another initiative trying to do away with same-sex marriage.) I don't know that she is all that pro-gay-marriage, but she surely doesn't want the hate-monger control freaks to win on this issue! (Oops, I let my opinions show *blush*)

It was amazing that I actually know these fellows - one partner has a very bawdy sense of humor and wears t-shirts I hate. The other is very much a host and schmoozer - in the good sense! In so many ways they are just every day people that want to live their lives with whatever love they can share. Seems like everyone aught to have a chance at that!
