Mazel tov to William Hasty III and Gregory S. Smith. The happily married couple were wed in New York recently and submitted a wedding announcement to their hometown newspaper - The State in South Carolina.
The New York law allows out of state couples to marry, so readers could see more wedding announcements for gay couples in the local paper.
The paper's policy is to run wedding announcements from local gay couples who get married in states where their marriage is recognized.
Back in 2006, The State ran an editorial supporting the state's constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. Now they're publishing our wedding announcements. Oh, how times are changing.
