Gay Marriage Featured in MS Weddings

Bloggers Jeremy Hooper and Andrew Shulman tied the knot in Litchfield Hills, Connecticut on June 13 this year, and received a full page dedicated to their nuptials in Martha Stewart Wedding’s 15th anniversary Winter 2010 edition -- the first gay couple to ever have been featured in Weddings.

"We’re humbled and honored to have been deemed ’good thing’-y enough to grace this mass market mag’s pages," the couple wrote on their Web site, http://www.goodasyou.org/

"It’s one time you won’t hear us complain about our love being turned into an issue."


Not once in the short description of the ceremony and reception, nor in the captions accompanying six beautiful snapshots, does the magazine mention the obvious: Hooper and Shulman are gay. The focus, instead, is on their menu choices and themed tables. The couple’s wedding stood out because of their use of recycled found objects in their d├ęcor, and not because of their sexuality.
