Meg Liffick and Joe Ball of Indianapolis gave gay and lesbian couples at their wedding last weekend the first dance.

New York Times bestselling author John Green (The Fault of Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns and An Abundance of Katherines) wrote a post on his blog about the wedding.

Green said that when it came time for the traditional first dance, Ball read a short statement explaining that the couple wanted their gay friends who could not marry in Indiana the privilege of the first dance.

“This was a large and very diverse wedding in a state that doesn't even recognize same-sex civil unions, let alone marriage. And yet the ovation that these people received while dancing to The Beach Boys' Wouldn't It Be Nice was like nothing I've ever heard at any wedding,” Green wrote. “If there were dry eyes, I didn't see any.”

“Change is coming,” he added.
