What better way to celebrate the overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act than with a gay TV wedding? With lots of them!
The United States Supreme Court dismissed a defense of Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure in California that outlawed same-sex marriage, and determined that DOMA, signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996, is unconstitutional. To this we say: Yay gay!
In honor of this historic day, we pulled together a list of gay TV couples whose weddings we want to see (and attend!) come the fall season, so break out your formalwear and start dusting off your dancing shoes, 'cause we're heading to the chapel...
Glee's Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss): "If that's an engagement ring, my answer's yes." Hey, Kurt's already said he'd be willing to swap vows with his well-gelled other half…even if they aren't technically a couple at the moment. But we have a feeling these two will eventually say "I do" by series' end, with one of them walking down the aisle to an instrumental version of "Teenage Dream," obviously.
Glee's Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany (Heather Morris): We can't to see these two ladies say "I do" mostly because it would probably be the most insane wedding ever. Lord Tubbington as ring bearer? Yes, please!
Lost Girl's Bo (Anna Silk) and Lauren (Zoie Palmer): We can't think of a better way for the couple who won our 2013 Top TV Couple Tournament to celebrate their victory than by putting a ring on it!
Scandal's Cyrus (Jeff Perry) and James (Dan Bucatinsky): Though they are already married, we'd love to see these two recommit after all their drama in a renewal ceremony…that is, if Cyrus could manage to get through the planning process without having a heart attack over Fitz's (Tony Goldwyn) re-election campaign.
Modern Family's Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson): Yep, we're already crying just thinking about how touching and sweet this ceremony would be.
Pretty Little Liars' Emily (Shay Mitchell) and Paige (Lindsay Shaw)*: Hm...could a wedding between one of the hit series' fan-favorite couples go down without a murder or "A" ruining one of the gals' dresses? We don't know, but we'd love to find out! (*That is, if Paige isn't actually on the "A" Team!)
Degrassi's Fiona (Annie Clark) and Imogen (Cristine Prosperi): Sure, the couple technically split in the TeenNick show's recent graduation special, but this is a teen drama; they'll be back together in five minutes! Plus, it's been far too long since we've had a Degrassi wedding. (Now if we could get the old cast to return for Marco and Dylan's wedding? We'd die from an overdose of nostalgia and awesomeness.)
The Following's Jacob (Nico Tortorella) and Paul (Adan Canto): While both are dead, we'd like to think Jacob will now have to courage to come out and take part in heaven's first gay wedding.
True Blood's Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Tara (Rutina Wesley): If you had told us back in season one that these two would become our favorite couple, we would have suggested you quit day-drinking. Yet here we are, loving every scene these two vamps share together. Also: Pam's wedding shoes would be epic.
