Okay, now I want to prepare you. Go get a tissue. Make sure you're sitting in a comfortable place with people who will not be disturbed by your sighs and tear wiping. 

We begin with first looks between the couples and we hear their vows. They sound like the same words any couple would say at their wedding.

"My sweet, my kind, my cherished beloved darling ..."

"This is a beautiful start of a lifelong love letter ..."

But then you hear a man's voice, breaking:

And there is the magic of this moment. All couples who marry are alike in their hopes and passion. But for a few, there is a thrilling sweetness to realize what once resided only in dreams. Imagine your heart's deepest desire, denied. Now imagine the barriers torn down.

I think most of us, at this point, have friends or family who identify as gay. And we wish them to enjoy the fullness of life just like anyone else. What a thrill to live in a time when we see that happen, when the tent of celebration grows to include everyone.
