Prop 8 Plaintiffs Paul Katami And Jeff Zarrillo Renew Their Wedding Vows In Style (PHOTOS)

Prop 8 plantiffs Paul Katami and Jeff Zarillo marked the end of LGBT Pride Month with a stylish wedding.

Although already legally married, the couple nonetheless shared their love and commitment once again on June 28 at the iconic Beverly Hilton Hotel in front of family members and Hollywood friends, including Rob Reiner, Jamie Lee Curtis and Lance Bass. On hand to perform during the ceremony was “Glee” star Darren Criss, who crooned a tender song for the couple’s first dance.

As The Los Angeles Times pointed out, the vow renewals came exactly one year after their actual marriage, as the couple were the first same-sex pair to tie the knot in a low-key Los Angeles ceremony in 2013, hours after a federal appeals court cleared the way for same-sex marriages to begin again.

“This wasn’t something we were trying to win for ourselves,” Zarrillo told ABC 7. “We were trying to win the right to marry and the right for full federal recognition for thousands of thousands of gay and lesbian couples.”

Lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies, who led the couple to their U.S. Supreme Court victory last year, officiated the ceremony.

Take a look at some photos of the July 28 nuptials below.

The field researchers working on this study, who do HIV testing and research in commercial sex venues and public bath houses in NYC, said the low perception of risk suggest people need to be educated about their risk of infection and how to prevent it.
