Boda Número Dos

We took a break from this weekend's San Diego Pride Festival to attended our second wedding of this still-young same-sex marriage season here in California.
Bob (center right) and John (center left) took their vows in front of a small group of friends and family on the deck of a La Jolla hotel overlooking the ocean. Joining them in the wedding party were best maids of honor Katie (far left) and Stephanie (far right).
Back in La Jolla, John's mom led the wedding party with a shower of rose petals. She came all the way from New Mexico to watch her son get hitched.
Kathy officiated the ceremony. She got some help putting on her corsage from her man Dave.
Bob and John have been together for four years.
Here's hoping for many more years of togetherness. For more wedding photos check out Rex's blog post here.
Meanwhile, my friends David and Greg are finishing plans for their Hawaiian-themed marriage ceremony being held 500 miles to the north in Oakland next weekend. David is a fellow journalist and the incoming president of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association. He and Greg have been together for 21 years.

That should do it for this month, but we have at least three more weddings scheduled in August.

And who knows how many more will pop up between now and November, when voters will decide on a state constitutional amendment that would take away the right of marriage that was granted to gay and lesbian couples by the state Supreme Court in May.
