WEDDING BELLE

WATCH: Straight Bride Passes Bouquet To Lesbian Sister Unable to Wed Partner

Natasha Frost decided to make a statement with the traditional flower toss at her April 20 wedding to Tony Friesen by symbolically passing the bouquet to sister Nitara Frost, Tabatha Trahan — Nitara’s partner of over 7 years — and their five children.

Nitara and Tabatha exchanged rings over seven years ago and together are raising their five kids without the legal recognition of their home state of Minnesota.

Though Minnesota made history by voting to end its ban on gay marriage, same-sex couples still cannot wed and so Natasha and Tony urged all attendees to contact their state legislators to tell them that all couples deserve the freedom to marry.

In March, the Minnesota Legislature passed the same version of the marriage bill, Senate bill SF925 and House Bill HF1054, and the House is expected to vote next week. Gov. Mark Dayton, however, has said he’d be happy to sign gay marriage into law.

It was a beautiful gesture made all the more so by Nitara and Tabatha’s adorable kids who just can’t seem to keep their excitement to themselves. Hopefully, Nitara can experience the same rights as her sister and Minnesota will take the next step towards full equality.

      “Though Minnesota made history by voting to end its ban on gay marriage…”—No, they didn’t. They voted against promoting the ban from mere law to the state constitution, but have not as yet been offered the chance to end it.
