Mazel Tov, Felicitaciones, Til Lykke. This will be a short diary but the good news must be shared:
One bride wore a knee-length lace dress and pearls. The other bride wore a yellow shirt and white suit. And when a pastor pronounced them "partners in life this day and for always" Tuesday, they hugged and smiled in front of wedding guests and nearly a dozen TV cameras and reporters.
Congratulations to Angelisa Young and Sinjoyla Townsend, who today became the first same sex couple to wed in our nation's capitol. G'head and tell me it's not much of a diary. Well it isn't. But it is a heck of a moment and a beautiful thing that should be celebrated!
The happy and beautiful couple:
met in a constitutional law class at the University of the District of Columbia. They wed at the office of the Human Rights Campaign, along with two other couples.

Happy marriages begin when we marry the one we love, and they blossom when we love the one we married.
