This week's Astonishing X-Men #51 was historic for Marvel Comics for showing the publisher's first gay wedding (between Northstar and his boyfriend Kyle), but it was an even bigger milestone for real Ohio couple Scott Everhart and Jason Welker, who won Midtown Comics' contest for a free wedding in New York City to coincide with the release of the comic. The couple met online about a year ago and bonded over Everhart's comic fandom during a date on Free Comic Book Day. You can watch the couple's big day play out at Midtown Comics after the cut.
