VIDEO: First Ever Same-Sex Ceremony at Fort Bragg

Share |

This sweet video shows Maj. Daniel Toven and his parter Johnathan Taylor exiting Fort Bragg's Main Post Chapel in Fayetteville, N.C., following a blessing ceremony in front of around 100 family members and friends Dec. 21, 2013.

The couples actually married in Washington D.C., where they live, in August — the military repealed its "don't ask, don't tell" policy in 2011, though same-sex marriage still is banned by the state of North Carolina — but exchanged vows and received a blessing in the short Episcopal service, which is believed to be the first at the chapel, according to the Fayetteville Observer
