… Yep, one HUNDRED and one gay weddings! Way to go, Guy Fieri.

Everyone’s favorite Food Network TV host officiated a mass same-sex wedding in The Sunshine State last weekend, shortly after the ban on same-sex marriages was lifted in January.

Congratulations and best wishes to all the lovely couples! We support you. :)
