An Historic Day

It's an historic day in the United States. Last night, the New York State Senate passed a bill which would legalize gay marriage in the state of New York, and today, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the bill, making it state law.

New York is not the first state to legalize gay marriage, but symbolically, New York's action might be the most important because many recognize New York City's famous Stonewall Inn as the site of the beginning of the gay civil rights movement in 1969.

We'll write more about this important day later, but for now, we'll just express how much we'd like to be in the wedding planning business in New York City right now. According to the legislation, gay marriages can begin in New York in just thirty days. Yes, our desire to be gay wedding planners is exceeded only by our desire, a year later, to be gay divorce attorneys. Hey, just saying.
