Whitehall couple first to wed

A Whitehall couple was one of the first to say “I do” early Tuesday as Vermont officially started performing same-sex marriages.

 

 

Bill Slimback, 38, and Bob Sullivan, 41, exchanged vows at the Moose Meadow Lodge in Duxbury, Vt., just after midnight on Sept. 1, in what has been considered the first same-sex marriage performed in the state of Vermont.

“It’s feels wonderful,” Slimback told reporters after the marriage.

Vermont became the fifth state to allow same-sex marriages to be performed, along with Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Iowa. While New York does not perform same-sex marriages, the state does recognize civil unions and marriages that are performed in other states.
