Chely Wright Wedding on Same Day as Kim Kardashian’s

Chely Wright married Lauren Blitzer on the same day Kim Kardashian gets hitched. The country singer and GLBT activist nixed the traditional nuptials and used a DJ instead. She’s no longer a Single White Female, as her song goes.

The ceremony was far from what KK and Kris Humphries have planned near Santa Barbara on Saturday evening. But for the couple that came out last year, the feeling of being in love is no less important.

Chely Wright BroadwayWright, 40, and Blitzer, 30, exchanged vows at the GLBT Civil Rights activist’s aunt’s home in Connecticut Saturday.

The newly-minted married couple wore white gowns, but lost the veil, saying that they “like their hair too much,” according to People.

Things were going great in terms of making plans for their wedding.

They agreed on the basics. But when it came to Chely Wright’s wedding choice in food on the menu, meat didn’t make the cut.

Obviously she’s a vegetarian, and is practicing one part of the “heart attack proof” diet even if the Shut Up and Drive singer doesn’t know it.

But to compromise, Lauren Blitzer was able to enjoy some down home barbecue with her 200 or more guests in attendance. Very nice for the carnivores on hand.

A rabbi and a pastor officiated the wedding ceremony for Wright and Blitzer due to their religious differences. Still, things seem to have gone smoothly when they said “I do” at least twice perhaps.

The wedding of Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer probably won’t litter the airwaves like the Royal Wedding did or when Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries walk down the aisle Saturday evening.

But the argument about same-sex marriage and love—true love—just got a little stronger for GLBTs.
