A Cool Thing To Do

UPDATE: I received an email tonight, from Gregory [of Gregory and Jonathan] and thought I'd share it with you all:

Hey thank you for posting our story! We have now moved into first. You can read more about our story on Jonathan's blog at http://www.jrh456.blogspot.com/ . This whole contest has really shown us the amazing power of community! Please keep supporting us!

So, if you haven't voted, head to the bottom of this post and please vote for these two happily gay fellas!

Crate and Barrel is having an Ultimate Wedding Contest, and this is one of the couples. Now, i know, as Carte and Barrel no doubt also does, that gay marriage is not legal everywhere, but they have opened, and keep open, the voting for a gay couple on their site.

The couple, Gregory and Jonathan, tell their story:

Our love story.
Boy meets boy, boy falls for boy, and boys get engaged. The pure existence of our love is not always accepted. We had to deal with hatred from outsiders and support one another in recovery. Our love story involves the evolution of the meaning of love and the perseverance that allowed two people such as us to openly experience happiness. We knew that we were right for each other from the start, we knew that we would always be by one another’s sides and that as best friends we could truly experience our love openly.
Three important details about our Ultimate Wedding.
The three key things for our wedding are simply friends, family, and fun. We want a simple, but elegant affair at an outdoor vineyard in the DC area with our family and friends from across the country. Our family and friends are very important to us and our dream day would not be complete unless we were surrounded by all of them. And we want all of these people to be able to celebrate our love for each other and enjoy a memorable occasion.
Our everyday dream day.
Beauty, tranquility, and love characterize our perfect day. A perfect day for us is a day that is very similar to our wedding day. It is a day that we are free to spend together and to enjoy the company of our friends and family. One of our favorite weekend pastimes is venturing out to the vineyards in Virginia with a small group for a wine tasting and picnic. It gives us the opportunity to enjoy each others company, be absorbed by our surroundings and get away from the hectic lives we lead in the city.

So, if you feel the urge, take a walk over HERE and give Gregory and Jonathan a vote for their Ulitmate Wedding.

Special thanks to Dan at 41North87West for bringing this to my attention. So go, now, and vote.

Go.
Now.
