  2. Congratulations to the couple and a thank you to Ellen, a champion of LGBT equality. Can't wait to see how the FEW gay Ellen haters, who post comments on this site, spin this one.

  13. I was always an Ellen fan, even when I was anti-equality. She'a a class act, and the gay community is lucky to have her. And Ellen and Portia seem to compliment each other nicely. Wish I could have attended their wedding!

    Nice to read a positive story about someone HELPING a gay couple instead of excluding them from someplace or bashing one of them in the face.

  15. You know the money isn't going to a wedding, but that's beside the point.

  16. Fantastic! Congratulations!
    That's so beautiful!
    I love Ellen!

  17. Kudos to Ellen for everything she does, including the way she normalizes gay relationships. I know that she plays an important part in changing attitudes.
    My suggestion to the couple - you can have a wonderful wedding without spending $20,000. My husband and I had a very special, intimate wedding with some close friends, for just about $200. That was five years ago, and we're still thrilled that we did it that way. If I had 20 grand, I'd still do the $200 wedding, I'd donate a bunch to gay marriage organizations, and I'd sock the rest away. But, I would totally enjoy Fiji - perfect place for a honeymoon!

  18. Good for Ellen!
    I agree with the previous comment though. You don't need $20k to have a beautiful wedding!

  19. This made my day! Something like this would never have happened a few years ago. We are living in some pretty amazing times, friends. Not only am I happy for this adorable couple, I'm happy for the state of America. Talk about progress...
