In a beautiful gesture for marriage equality, Natasha Frost gave up tossing her bouquet to instead give the flowers to her gay sister, Nitara Frost, in hopes that her marriage to wife, Tabatha Trahan, will one day be federally recognized.
“What I wanted to do was give them the bouquet in the hopes that Minnesota lawmakers will actually recognize the right for everyone to marry in Minnesota,” the bride, who's one of three sisters, told the crowd at her wedding. “We’re hoping that happens this year, so we can celebrate the final sister's wedding.”
Frost posted a video of the moment to her Facebook account, adding:
“On April 20, 2013, I was able to marry my best friend. As part of our glorious ceremony, we gave the bridal bouquet to my sister Nitara Frost, her partner Tabatha, and their five children. We hope that we will be able to celebrate a legal recognition of the vows they took to one another more than seven years ago. Please contact your lawmakers to pass SF925/HF1054 this year and extend the freedom to marry to same-sex couples.”
The video has garnered more than 13,000 views since it was published on Monday.
