George Takei Gets Hitched!

Photobucket
Brad Altman has finally made an honest man out of George Takei! The partners of 21 years got married on Sunday in a multicultural ceremony at the Japanese American National Museum that featured a Buddhist priest, Native American wedding bands, a Japanese Koto harp and a bagpipe procession. That sounds freakin' awesome! And guess who served as best man and best lady? None other than Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols from Star Trek of course. The watched on as the couple (donned in white dinner jackets and black pants) entered to the tune of “One Singular Sensation” from A Chorus Line. You guys! That is soooo cliche! What is not cliche though were the sincere words George spoke about finally being able to wed the love of his life: “We have a relationship that’s been stronger and longer-lived than some of our straight friends, and yet we were not equal. What this does is give us that dignity; (it’s) being part of the American system and being whole. We’re making the American system whole as well, as America is becoming more equal.” Awww! George is so freakin' adorable I almost can't stand it! I would wish these two luck, but I don't think they need it!
