Marriage equality: Some 'C' states still get an A+
Get ye'self to Martha Stewart country, marriage-craving gays. For Connecticut's marriage equality is now in effect:
True to recent form, we hear the Mormon church has gone ahead and booked up every hotel, catering hall, pavilion, and suitable ceremonial space in the entire state until the year 2017.
We're kidding. We think.
Are the Mormons really doing that? You serious? Do they truly believe this is making good use of their money? Is this not a form of aggression?
I love garden weddings. They're nice.

No, GT -- I was being silly. :-)
Added a line to clarify.

YES, Yes, oh yes.
NEW HAVEN — Bunches of white balloons and giant sprays of long-stemmed red roses festooned City Hall here Wednesday morning, as one of the eight couples who successfully sued the state to allow same-sex marriage became the first to obtain a marriage license as the law took effect.
The couple, Barbara and Robin Levine-Ritterman, filled out the paperwork and waited about 10 minutes for it to be processed, but they said they would not marry today because they were still working out their wedding plan. “We’re thinking about doing it May,” said Robin Levine-Ritterman, who was holding a bouquet of roses. “We really wanted to be part of this historic first.”

..oops..and real first ceremony...complete with daughter!
Among the first couples actually to be married, just before 11 a.m., was Peg Olivera, a 36-year-old yoga teacher, and Jen Vickery, a 44-year-old lawyer, who wed just outside City Hall with their 3-month-old daughter, Willow, and half a dozen friends watching. They exchanged rings, shared a story about how Ms. Olivera proposed in the aisles of IKEA, and then had a slow, tender kiss after a friend, Judge F. Herbert Gruendel of the state appellate court, pronounced them married.
