The Supreme Court finally ruled that states must allow same-sex marriages in a landmark decision on June 26. In honor of this momentous occasion, HollywoodLife.com is looking back at 7 same-sex TV weddings. Victory isn’t just on our TV screens anymore.
What a day! Same-sex couples across the country can now marry in every single state. The Supreme Court ruled on June 26 that states cannot ban same-sex marriage. Television has been ahead of the curve for a while, with some of our favorite couples on Glee, Modern Family and more tying the knot. Let’s take a fond trip down memory lane to remember some of TV’s best same-sex marriages!
Kurt and Blaine, Glee
This was a big moment for Klaine fans. After years of ups and downs, these two finally tied the knot alongside Brittany and Santana. Along with the rest of the Gleeks out there, we cried so many tears watching Kurt and Blaine say “I do.” Remember the first time Blaine and Kurt kissed? Tears. So many tears.
Mitchell and Cam, Modern Family
In the season five finale, our favorite Modern Family couple — sorry, Jay and Gloria and Claire and Phil — had the wedding of their dreams. It took multiple attempts, thanks to crazy shenanigans, but daddy Jay helped pull it off.
Callie and Arizona, Grey’s Anatomy
Calzona forever! For a while, it looked like Callie and Arizona might not make it. First, Arizona left Callie behind at the airport for Africa. When she returned to Seattle, Callie was pregnant with Mark’s baby. Callie also narrowly survived a car accident in season seven. Despite their strife, Callie and Arizona married, with Bailey officiating the ceremony. Love wins.
Stef and Lena, The Fosters
Kudos to Stef and Lena, they planned their wedding in less than a week. There couldn’t have been a dry eye in the house watching these two exchange vows. They were so cute when they got their rings mixed up. Plus, Jude was the ring-bearer!
Brittany and Santana, Glee
Just like Kurt and Blaine, Gleeks waited with bated breath for Brittany and Santana to tie the knot. The final season of Glee featured one of the most heartfelt TV weddings ever. Brittany and Santana wed in a double wedding with Kurt and Blaine. Their sweet vows made our hearts melt. Great, we’re crying again.
Kevin and Scotty, Brothers & Sisters
Brothers & Sisters was such an underrated show. In one of the family drama’s best moments, Kevin and Scott finally got married. Kevin’s sister, Kitty, officiated the ceremony. It wasn’t just a pivotal moment for Brothers & Sisters; it was a pivotal moment for television.
Bianca and Reese, All My Children
This was a big one. In 2009, Bianca and Reese married in daytime television’s first lesbian wedding. It was magical. Bianca and Reese were surrounded by their loved ones as they pledged themselves to each other. “I promise to love you and devote myself to you,” Reese tearfully said. “Because standing here with you, it’s where I belong.”
