Here Come The Brides! A Trip Down the Aisle with Rachel and Christine

  • Long Island couple Christine Tulley and Rachel Baker traveled to downtown Manhattan at dawn on Sunday morning for reasons more sentimental than practical.  Ms. Baker, a TriBeCa native, and Ms. Tulley showed up at the courthouse to be married on July 24, 2011, the first day New York State’s Marriage Equality Law went into effect. Sporting white sundresses and matching chignons, the couple allowed The Observer to witness one of the most intimate days of their lives. Yes, we took pictures. Yes, we cried.

    Salut au Président Obama de mettre fin a l’homosexualité et de
    l’interdire sur le sol américain aujourd’hui pour éviter un fort séisme
    un volcan ou un tsunami surtout en Californie et New york dans le passé
    en temps de Prophète Abraham ALLAH a donner l’ordre a l’ange Gabriel a
    exterminer une population homosexuel par un volcan l’homosexualité est
    un crime qui provoque la colère d’ALLAH le sida punition divine pour ces
    homosexuels et lesbiennes au Président Obama aux homosexuels en 2011
    ALLAH n’a pas donner la retraite a l’ange Gabriel la preuve le tsunami
    de Japon cette crise économique punition divine a cause d’usurpation
