Kitty Lambert, 54, and Cheryle Rudd, 53, from Buffalo, New York became the state’s first legally-wed same-sex couples on Saturday, with traditional honeymoon at Niagara Falls as the backdrop for the historic event.
Both the ladies are grandmothers with five grown children from previous marriages. They were joined by several hundred friends, family members, supporters and even a group of tourists for the first same-sex marriage since New York became the sixth, and largest US state to legalize gay marriage, said a Reuters report.
Lambert, an art gallery manager, wore a blue satin dress she sewed herself, while Rudd, who works in a food processing plant, opted for a white tuxedo with tails. The grandmothers have been a couple for over a decade.
Earlier, the women said their marriage represented a major step for gay rights in the United States, with Lambert calling it an amazing moment.
We're achieving that real American Dream to be treated like everybody else and be protected under all those laws” was the feeling of the in–love granny during the course of their solemnization into a legally wed same–sex couple, reports said.
