Lovebirds Ted and Don tied the knot after 50 years together. The grooms, who are both in their 70s, exchanged rings during a quiet ceremony outside the courthouse in Bradenton, Florida. With the legalization of same-sex marriage, Don and Ted wanted to honor those who fought for their right to marry by making their relationship official. After the ceremony the newlyweds enjoyed muffins and coffee alongside Don’s sister and their photographer at a cafe downtown.
