    Both are fine-looking men. It looks like a vanilla dream and I would love to be part of a vanilla ice-cream sandwich. Who is the top?

    Seriously, one read through before you hit “submit.” That’s all we’re asking. Just one.

  • CivicMinded

    I really like the fact they wore suits and not tuxes. That’s Gavin Newsom officiating right? In what state did they marry? I thought Mr. Newsom is in CA where 2 guys aren’t allowed yet to get married and Thomas Roberts is in NY where I presume Mr. Newsom isn’t legal to perform weddings.

  • Rockindad

    That is Gavin Newsom performing the ceremony. I assume that as California Lt. Governor, he has federal interstate authority with regard to officiating at civil ceremonies. It’s kind of wonderful that this was obviously not a Sex and the City 2 showgirl wedding -but cupcakes, really?! hahah…

    @CivicMinded: In many states, as in California, you can get permission to perform weddings just by registering…sometimes even online

    I hope they find their happily ever after.

    Sigh. I’m sad that Tom is hitched now, but I’ll still gladly play Michael Wilding to his Liz Taylor. If you’ve ever seen his ass, you’ll know why I’d gladly wait it out.

    Anyway, congratulations, Thomas! Heartbreaker.
