A Buddhist-Christian Same-sex wedding ceremony celebrated on June 17, 2008

Peggy Bennington and Annette Friskopp were delighted to be married atop a San Diego Terrace hotel in June 2008 under the newly declared legal sanction of same-sex marriage. The ceremony incorporated a gathering prayer written by Annette, Buddhist wedding vows, and a special blessing recorded by a Christian minister and close friend of Annette’s family. Annette’s two young sons walked the brides down the aisle accompanied by the family pug.
