Country singer Chely Wright married her sweetheart Lauren Blitzer on Saturday in an inter-faith ceremony.
Wright is a Christian and Blitzer is Jewish so the couple had both a reverend and a rabbi presiding over the wedding nuptials.
Wright met her wife just two weeks after she came out and had said; “[I]was hiding. I was gay, and I didn’t want anyone to know that I was. Country music has been described as being about God and family and country and for some reason people think that you can’t be gay and have those beliefs. That’s why I have to do this. I have to be one to step forward.”
Congratulations on your wedding Chely and Lauren!
