Talk about the perfect day, perfect site & perfect pair -- the wedding on June 27th held at the hilltop castle of Dr. Danne King (aka Socialite/Philanthropist Liz Loren,) was the first all-out-full glamorous gay wedding, held the day after the announcement that the Supreme Court approved same sex weddings nationally!
