Today's the day! Legal same-sex marriages began in New York at midnight, and the first to get hitched were Kitty Lambert (left) and Cheryle Rudd - who tied the knot in Niagara Falls at 12:01 am. From The Daily What:
“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."
Congratulations to Kitty (btw - best lesbian name EVAH) and Cheryle - and ALL the happy couples getting married today.
