Residents and merchants of a San Diego suburb have banded together to throw a dream wedding for a gay couple whose wedding was disrupted by anti-gay slurs.

Arizona residents Oscar de las Salas and Gary Jackson's August 17 wedding in Coronado was repeatedly interrupted by a heckler believed to be hiding in a nearby luxury residential building screaming “homos” and “go home, fags.”

According to San Diego's Union-Tribune, a do-over for the couple is planned for Saturday, October 11.

“The people of Coronado, who said they wouldn't tolerate what happened to us, have crated a happy ending,” de las Salas told the paper. “We never expected this. It's incredible.”

What started out as a small reception for the couple mushroomed into a fully catered wedding to be held at one of the city most exclusive hotels as donations poured in.

“It's insane how much they're donating,” said attorney Alisa Kerr, one of the four young women behind the effort. “I mean a Loews [Coronado Bay Resort] wedding on a Saturday – I have no idea how much that would cost.”

Mayor Casey Tanaka will officiate the ceremony.
