Ben & Jerry's Hosts Wedding and Provides Ice Cream to Gay Couple Who Got Married in D.C.

Last Thursday, in celebration of marriage equality finally coming to Washington, D.C., Ben & Jerry's hosted a wedding and provided ice cream to Andreas Vellios (left) and Keith Spangler-Vellios (right), who exchanged vows at the Ben & Jerry's Georgetown Scoop Shop. 
“Equal rights and treatment for all people was a founding principle of Ben & Jerry’s when we started the company over 30 years ago,” said Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s. “We are proud that the District of Columbia is recognizing the rights of gay and lesbian couples to marry and are happy to celebrate the milestone with an ice cream wedding cake and best wishes for the happy couple.”
Last September, the company renamed its "Chubby Hubby" flavor to "Hubby Hubby" in support of Vermont's decision to legalize same-sex marriage.
