'I Do': Author David Jefferson (left) and his new spouse Jeff Bechtloff on their wedding day

An excerpt from the David Jefferson Newsweek Article:
Despite my unanswered questions about my own motives, I leapt into wedding planning with the ferocity of the fiancées on "Bridezillas." After the unfortunate incident with the homophobic restaurant patron, we settled for a banquet hall at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank that specializes in one-stop-shop weddings. What surprised us most was just how unfazed and supportive all the vendors seemed to be about our pending nuptials, even though some of them had never worked at a gay wedding before. The bakery we chose, Hansen's Cakes in Los Angeles, was a particular surprise: they were already carrying same-sex cake toppers, with mixed-race gay and lesbian couples. This is what I love most about American capitalism: smart business people don't discriminate as long as your money's green.
We'd like to thank author David Jefferson for choosing Hansen's Cakes to create his wedding cake. A graduate of Grant High School, David was a classmate and friend of Donna Babbin Feinstein (sister of decorator and Grant Grad Suzi.)
