Jerry—of Ben & Jerry’s fame—adds a sweet touch to a wedding in the nation’s capital

As reported by The Associated Press:

"Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s, D.C. Councilmember David Catania who introduced the District’s marriage equality legislation and Freedom to Marry's Michael Crawford were among those on hand to celebrate the occasion and toast the newlyweds with a special ice cream cake. Ben & Jerry's symbolically changed the name of its "Chubby Hubby" flavor to "Hubby Hubby" in 2009 when its home state of Vermont began recognizing same-sex marriages."
