As guests shot firecrackers into the air, the ceremony featured a Buddhist priest, Native American wedding bands, a Japanese Koto harp and a bagpipe procession. Several of his Star Trek costars were in attendance including Nichelle Nichols (Uhura), who was maid of honor, and Walter Koenig (Chekhov), who was the best man.

George Takei To Marry Brad Altman

Openly gay actor George Takei (Star Trek, Heroes) has announced that he will marry his longtime love, Brad Altman, this summer. This comes shortly after California announced its same-sex marriage ruling.

Takei, 71, said on his official blog, “Our California dream is reality. Brad Altman and I can now marry. We are overjoyed! At long last, the barrier to full marriage rights for same-sex couples has been torn down. We are equal with all citizens of our state!

“The California Supreme Court has ruled that all Californians have a fundamental right to marry the person he or she loves. Brad and I have shared our lives together for over 21 years. We’ve worked in partnership; he manages the business side of my career and I do the performing. We’ve traveled the world together from Europe to Asia to Australia. We’ve shared the good times as well as struggled through the bad. He helped me care for my ailing mother who lived with us for the last years of her life. He is my love and I can’t imagine life without him. Now, we can have the dignity, as well as all the responsibilities, of marriage. We embrace it all heartily.

“With time, I know the opposition to same sex marriage, too, will be seen as an antique and discreditable part of our history. As U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy remarked on same sex marriage, ‘Times can blind us to certain truths and later generations can see that laws once thought necessary and proper, in fact, serve only to oppress.’

“For now, Brad and I are enjoying the delicious dilemma of deciding where, when, and how we will be married. Marriage equality took a long time, but, like fine wine, its bouquet is simply exquisite.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
