Long elevator ride to love: A Look at the ladies who committed atop huge erection

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 3-188Picture 2-211We've been meaning to get to Jessica Chesnutt and Natalie Sauro, the twentysomething lesbian couple who held a commitment ceremony atop the Empire State Building on Valentine's Day (see our pre-event story here). However, in the eleven days since Hallmark's favorite holiday, we've been too busystuffing ourselves with marked-down message hearts to get around to anything else V-Day centric.

Fortunately, neither Gothamist nor WNBC are as sensitive to the power of "Be Mine"-laden pastel confectionaries as we are. The former was able to work up an interview with the happy couple, while the latter has some video from their Sapphic ceremony. Check out both a links:

The whole day was a whirlwind. We were secluded from the other couples and the tourists for the whole preparation and ceremony. Everything seemed very normal as far as weddings go, with the exception of all the news cameras and reporters. It wasn't until we went to the Observation Deck for photos that we were bombarded with curious crowds.

Now if New York State could attach some rights to this lovely ceremony, that would be fab. Isn't that right, stale but sweet message heart? ::chomp, chomp::
