“If it helps someone who is being bullied in school for their sexual orientation to see it as something normal, then that’s great,” he said. “It’s not something that should be hidden just because you belong to a particular institution.”

The guys were married at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and plan on road tripping from Seattle to San Diego for their honeymoon.

Scroll down to see photos from the wedding, and congrats to the happy couple!
