Beth Ditto Got Married!
By Samantha Henderson
We love ourselves some Beth Ditto (remember our May 2009 cover story?), so obviously we were overjoyed to hear that she recently married her longtime girlfriend Kristin Ogata on the island of Maui, in Hawaii.
Ditto wore a white tulle dress by Jean Paul Gaultier (Whose runway she walked in Spring 2011), and Ogata wore a white short suit with desert boots. They topped off their looks with white flower garlands, in true Hawaiian style.
As Ditto told us last year, the wedding had been in the works for a while, and the two have been friends for even longer than that—Ogata started as Ditto's personal assistant.
In an interview with The Advocate last year, Ditto spoke about their happy relationship:
“We just always kind of knew that we were always in love. It’s blissful, I think. It’s really sweet and perfect. I feel like it’s like so simple that it’s a miracle. I feel like Dan and Roseanne.”
And it doesn't seem like that feeling has abated, based on Ditto's post on Gossip's facebook page, saying:
“At long last, now that we have returned home and recovered from all the amazingness and had some time to bask in the afterglow, we are excited to share with you a pic or two from Beth and Kristin’s wedding. So much love and appreciation to all of our family and friends who celebrated with us! And a huge thank you to Jean Paul Gaultier for the dream-come-true dress!”
We couldn't be happier for Ditto and Ogata. We just wish there were more pictures of that gorgeous dress!
