Do over for gay couple heckled during 1st wedding

Posted: Updated:

CORONADO, Calif. (AP) — The first wedding of Oscar de Las Salas and Gary Jackson was interrupted by a heckler yelling homophobic slurs.

The do-over ceremony was attended by about 300 strangers at a waterfront hotel near San Diego.

The renewal of vows — held Saturday, two months after the couple from Phoenix were married — was the idea of a resident of Coronado, who heard about the first ceremony and felt moved to do something.

On Saturday, de Las Salas and Jackson came to a hotel in Coronado not really knowing what to expect.

U-T San Diego reports that they found several hundred attendees on a terrace — and not a heckler in sight. Most of the guests either donated a gift or service, or offered to help.
