by Accidental Bear

I too, hope to look as happy and handsome as they do in my life time. NY thank you for leading the game.

Happy Couple of the Day

At Midnight tonight, Kitty Lambert (left) and Cheryle Rudd became the first same-sex couple to legally marry in the state of New York.

“By the power vested in me by the laws of the state of New York I now pronounce you legally married,” said Niagara Falls Paul A Dyster, who presided over the couple’s civil ceremony, shortly after the clock’s struck midnight.

Today also happened to be the 12th anniversary of Lambert and Rudd’s first date.

“This is one of the most incredible moments of my personal life,” Lambert said before the ceremony, “but it’s also an incredible moment for New York.”
