Gay Wedding Video of the Day: Eli and Dave


Eli Puterman writes us:

"I just got married to the love of my life, Dave Shortt, this past Sunday in Rigaud, Quebec. On the wedding day, Dave featured the following 6 minute animated video about our families and our life together as a couple for the first time. I had never seen it before, and it was a total surprise and gift to me at our wedding in front of 100 and some people."

Check out the STUNNING clip which follows the ancestry of Dave and Eli (sometimes in split screen) to their meeting. This obviously took a ton of work. Congrats guys!

  3. Too bad there's no family heritage to pass on for Eli and Dave. I never understood the appeal of the totally bald. Is her undergoing chemo?

  10. How beautiful !.......this vid, beautifully produced, just makes me feel so joyous for the two men in love, Eli and David, and for all of us.......after such years of suppression of our nature to be able now to share such happiness is truly remarkable...

  12. I don't even know how most of those effects were done. So, so impressive. Good luck to Dave and Eli!

  13. WOW!!!!

  14. That was amazing and beautiful, but one question: has ANYBODY ever sung "Higher Love" so the listener can understand the lyrics? I still have no idea what the lyrics are.

  15. Congrats Boys! That video is ridonculous. How do you do it? It was so trixie and I wish I had the tools, know-how, and ability to do it myself. So powerful, interesting, and fun to watch. My husband and I of 17 years wish you all the very best. Cheers Boys!

  16. Lovely, moving, but please just call them "Wedding Video of the Day". I don't recall ever going to a "Straight Wedding", do you? Besides we all know that Towleroad is a "gay" website.

  17. Utterly so dear as to terrorize one in the caring. Terrific and thanks so much.

    Posted by: Peter Haan | Oct 13, 2012 10:47:45 PM

  18. yeah, you got me to cry. thanks, seriously.

    and congrats!!!

  19. Wow. Speechless and teary-eyed I am. Even in ancient Greece it's called the "higher love," no offense to straights.

  20. Very moving, thanks for sharing your love with us!

  21. The video was so beautiful (he writes, tears streaming down his cheeks).

    May they have 1,000 X 1,000 years of happiness together.

  22. Great! I never thought I'd see this in my lifetime.

    And do, please, keep emphasizing the gay in the title. As long as bigotry and hatred keep us from celebrating our marriages in every state and country and city and burg; as long as we're treated as non-citizens; as long as we're fired from our jobs, kicked out of our homes, beaten and murdered just for being ourselves, it's absolutely imperative that we claim every incremental progressive step we make, and claim it loudly that yes, we're gay, and we're married.

  23. Just like everyone else, Wow. What a beautiful thing.

    Posted by: EricD. | Oct 15, 2012 11:30:10 AM

  24. Wow <3

  25. congratulations!

    Nice picture over Osoyoos BC.

    Amazing work, and I'm going to have this stuck in my head when I do our own wedding invitations soon. Way to set the bar high guys!
