Sebastian and I had spoken at length before deciding to get married on the first day same sex marriages were deemed legal in NY State. Although he tends to be private and even a bit standoffish by nature, the opportunity to participate in this watershed moment outweighed his usual reluctance to be in the spotlight. And besides, we had already been engaged for over a year. We were in the midst of planning the wedding of our dreams (and we still are) when history just happened. So we decided to grab the opportunity to be part of history.
