|Mike's sister Amanda said our Marriage Equality statement AND walked her brother down the aisle.... awwww!|
Our officiant said, "Now the groom's sister would like to make a statement on the couples' behalf." Amanda then stepped forward and read the following:
Mike and Britt want to acknowledge that the joy they feel today is contrasted with empathy for those families whose unions the state refuses to recognize out of bigotry. As Brittany will readily attest to - not every marriage is about biological procreation. And, as we can see from their antics this evening, a couple’s heterosexuality is no indicator of their responsibility for young children. It is time for this injustice to end.
And then the greatest thing happened. Everyone clapped and cheered! Which was so wonderful... on so many levels.
Are you planning on making a marriage equality statement during your ceremony? And if you've done so at your wedding already, how did it go over with the crowd?
