As goes Martha...

by Jeremy Hooper

Martha Stewart Weddings magazine has never featured a same-sex couple. Up until now, that is:

Martha Stewart Weddings -- Winter 2010 (15th Anniv.) issue

Andrew and I are humbled and honored to have been deemed "good thing"-y enough to grace this mass market mag's pages. It's one time you won't hear us complain about our love being turned into an issue.

Our full equality: Today Martha, tomorrow Congressional Quarterly?

Thanks, Matt. It's been hard to keep it under wraps! I've known since August.

Wow. That's just...Wow. Congrats.

From one blogger to another, congrats!!! I've just subscribed to your feed & looking forward to reading your blog this year. Peace, Joe

WOW!!! I just asked my partner if she REALLY wanted to renew her subscription to Martha Stewart, to which she has subscribed since Day One. And then I showed her THIS. We are renewing! Mazel Tov my friends---long happy, loving life. We got in during that narrow window of opportunity in California, and are now one of 18,000 couples legally married here.

Bravo to Martha for doing it first! And Jeremy---keep up the great investigative work on this blog!

That is so cool.

I can't WAIT to pick up that issue! Way to GO guys! I'm so happy for you. You had a beautiful wedding and how EXCITING this is to be featured in one of the best style magazines around.

For the times, they are a changin'...

Congratulations, Jeremy, to you and to Andrew. I noticed by the date in the article that you've been a married couple for six months already.

Happy Half-Year Anniversary to you both.

Love it.

Congratulations! What an amazing wedding!!

Posted by: Cathal | Dec 21, 2009 7:24:16 AM

As one of the first couples to get married in California I'm really trying to hold back tears here. This is so incredibly touching and sweet and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.

Posted by: Matt | Dec 21, 2009 7:31:27 AM

I know I am committing one of the 10 sins here, but I envy you both, well maybe not, I ain't you neighbor. Jeremy am so proud of you guys, really am, and a baby steps we go.......

This is so fantastic!

Posted by: Forky | Dec 21, 2009 7:46:17 AM

Hey, Fantastic!! Way to go, Jeremy & Andrew. Larry & I just celebrated our 3 month anniversary two days ago..... All the best in 2010!


P.S. I'm sure Maggie G. will send you a wedding present when she reads this article....

Posted by: David Twombley | Dec 21, 2009 7:57:07 AM

Woo hoo, and hearty congratulations to you sirs!

David: Nothing from Mags yet. But some of you will remember that Peter LaBarbera sent me a condemnation a few days prior to the day:


Posted by: G-A-Y | Dec 21, 2009 8:00:46 AM

You've got me all choked up this morning... That's awesome, Jeremy!

Posted by: Necktie Knot | Dec 21, 2009 8:06:46 AM

That's fantastic. We're an American gay couple in New Zealand, and we had our Civil Union here when it became legal a few years ago. It's a very special event. Congrats on that and congrats on the Martha bit too!

Posted by: Moon over Martinborough | Dec 21, 2009 8:28:20 AM

How wonderful! Congrats!!!

Posted by: Stacy Jill | Dec 21, 2009 8:54:09 AM

Congratulations once again to you and Andrew! Mazel Tov!

Posted by: John Ozed | Dec 21, 2009 8:58:15 AM

Wow! Your wedding made it into a Martha Stewart magazine. Congrats you guys on both your marriage and making it into her magazine.

Posted by: Sam | Dec 21, 2009 9:17:34 AM

Congrats guys.

Posted by: Vast Variety | Dec 21, 2009 9:20:18 AM

Martha Stewart could not have picked a better couple to epitomize all that is good, decent and thoroughly wonderful about marriage equality. You guys do more than put happy face on what, to our many detractors isn't, but which always should be a celebration of life. You guys are the ideal and you do inspire hope. Just don't do something cheesy with your newfound celebrity... like branding a line of MS Bath Soaps, or eye creams. Though, a line of satin sheets or maybe hemp apparel/stationery might be appropriate!

Congratulations!!! Great of Martha Stewart Inc to Publish!!
May many Blessings be on your Marriage, Jeremy & Andrew!!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to Everyone!

Posted by: Roger | Dec 21, 2009 9:53:36 AM

Many congratulations! It's so cool that Martha profiled you--and in the 15th Anniversary Edition, no less.

Posted by: Dana | Dec 21, 2009 10:28:28 AM

Congrats! You guys deserve it.

Posted by: dragon8888 | Dec 21, 2009 10:53:35 AM

Mazel Tov! (Did I get that right?) In any case, I believe we can all agree: The Best for the Best.

What a lovely couple you make.

The honeymoon is still going?
