Gay Coupled Married outside DC Ben and Jerry's

From DCist.

First Hello Cupcake, and now Ben & Jerry's joins the list of dessert purveyors helping D.C. gay couples celebrate their newly granted marriage freedoms.

Keith Spangler and Andreas Vellios plan to exchange vows inside the
Georgetown Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop on Thursday. Rev. Lance Orndorff will officiate the ceremony, but the couple will also be celebrating with the actual Jerry -- Jerry Greenfield, the co-founder of Ben & Jerry's -- who plans to be in attendance to offer a toast and say a few words about his company's history of promoting social justice.

After the wedding ceremony, Spangler and Vellios will welcome family and friends to share in their happiness, and enjoy, what else, some ice cream cake. We assume it'll be made with the
Hubby Hubby flavor.

Local marriage equality champion D.C. Council member David Catania and Freedom to Marry director Michael Crawford, who have both been attending a veritable marathon of same-sex unions this week, will also be on hand for a few congratulatory remarks.
