First In The Eyes Of God, Then In The Eyes Of New York And Now By The Law Of The Land!!!

The news flashed across phone screens and computers at 10:03am the ruling had been made and only seconds later everywhere we could celebrate, we did, in emails and posts, over cubicle walls and by office doors...

...and at some point,  in the women's bathroom stall, quietly weeping in joy for all those who now could, and in sorrow for all those who never got the chance.

But until new bridesmaids dresses are chosen and china patterns picked, an encore celebration for those who did!!!

Doug and Shawn got married.

Friends asked if they could play music for the party.

We all couldn't stop hugging them...

and hugging them...

...and hugging them...

It was a celebration of what America was and could be.

For where else, Rev. Sparks asked us, could a Baptist preacher marry two Jewish men in a bar on the Lower East Side of New York.

And after they cut the cake....

...all that remained at the end of the night was love, honored by friends and family and now, finally, protected by the laws of the land. THEN in New York State.


Thank you, Supreme Court!
