City hosts first gay weddings
As soon as the first two couples picked up their licenses Tuesday morning from D.C. Superior Court, they ran out of the marriage bureau and headed off to become the first to marry under a new District law legalizing same-sex marriages.
Dressed in matching black tuxedos, Jeremy Moon, 31, and his fiancé, Bryan Legaspi, rushed to the fifth floor to Judge Brook Hedge's courtroom.
Hedge, a friend of the couple, performed the private ceremony in front of her staff. Within 15 minutes, Hedge pronounced them legally married.
The couple, who have been together for nearly seven years, then rushed out of the courtroom with their license back to the marriage bureau to file their license. Then they planned to return to the White House where they work in the executive office.
"I'm just so excited," Moon said.
