The Fosters of ABC Family makes history Monday when lesbian mothers Lena (Sherri Saum) and Stef (Teri Polo) get hitched in television’s first gay marriage since the demise of DOMA. The event was going to take place with or without the landmark ruling of the Supreme Court on gay marriage.
According to producers Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige, the wedding ceremony was designed from the get-go, though the TV series is set in California where same sex weddings were not recognized as legal till June this year.
Peter Paige told that they knew the Supreme Court would likely make its decision before they shot the episode. If they had ruled the other way; they would have still gone ahead. But as the Supreme Court did rule the way it did, it was an even more resonant celebration.
The wedding ceremony was being shot on the Warner Bros. Bredeweg told that the timing was real crazy. All of the people behind the cameras were in tears celebrating two magnificent moments. It was really a beautiful day.
Lena and Stef will be joined at the weddings by their raucous brood of adopted, biological and foster kids, and Stef’s mother Sharon (Annie Potts), who attempts to strong arm Stef’s father Frank (Sam McMurray). Also on hand are Lena’s parents Stewart (Stephen Collins) and Dana (Lorraine Toussaint), with the first officiating the wedding ceremony.
Bredeweg told that they were very grateful that their young viewers are passionately investing in this non-traditional family. They were the ones who would bring about the real change in this world.
