West Point on Saturday hosted the wedding of two men, a first for the military academy.

The men are West Point graduates Larry Choate III, class of 2009, and Daniel Lennox, class of 2007.

The couple married at the U.S. Military Academy's Cadet Chapel in New York.

Chaplain Cynthia Lindenmeyer officiated the ceremony before roughly 20 guests.

Last December, Brenda Sue Fulton and Penelope Gnesis became the first gay couple to marry at the Cadet Chapel. Fulton, a West Point graduate, serves as a presidential appointee to the West Point Board of Visitors and played a prominent role in the repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell.” A second lesbian couple also exchanged vows in the chapel last year. But Saturday's wedding was the first time two men wed at West Point.

“It's maybe one more barrier that's pushed over a little bit, or maybe one more glass ceiling that's shattered that makes it easier for the next couple,” Choate was quoted as saying by the AP on Friday.

Choate, 27, and Lennox, 28, met after leaving the academy through a mutual friend.
