Meet New Hopes “First Couple” Same Sex Marriage Performed in New Hope

Herb Millman and John Dwyer made history Wednesday night in New Hope’s first same-sex wedding.

The ceremony was officiated by Mayor Larry Keller in the rear yard of his West Ferry Street home. The twilight event was well-attended by the many friends garnered by the couple over their years running Cockamamie’s Art Deco shop on North Main Street, volunteering with New Hope Chamber of Commerce, and serving with the New Hope Volunteer Fire Company.

“This is a great night for us and for the town we love so much because it underscores how special New Hope is as a place where gay people can live and love,” said Millman.

In the end, the darkening sky did not give way to rain, the normally gregarious Millman fought back tears of joy, Dwyer was poised in demeanor and moving in speech, and history was quietly made in a back yard in New Hope.
