Congratulations to Larry Choate III and Daniel Lennox, who were married on November 2, 2013 in the cadet chapel at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. Choate, class of 2009, and Lennox, class of 2007, were the first male couple to be married at West Point, though two female couples married there in late 2012. Choate and Lennox announced after the wedding that they will hyphenate their last names and henceforth be known as Larry and Daniel Lennox-Choate.

Both men have fulfilled their military obligations and currently live in Boston. Lennox is finishing a master's degree in business administration at Harvard, while Choate works at the Harvard Business School and has applied to Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

The men and their relationship, including their wedding, are the subject of a photo essay in the New York Times, "At West Point: Duty, Honor, Gay Marriage," which features text by Kerri MacDonald and photos by Jill Knight.

MacDonald writes that the two started dating after they met in Seattle last December, when Daniel, who had been deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan, was on rest leave.

"They were engaged months later, one night in bed, when an 'abstract' discussion of marriage became a down-on-one-knee proposal. 'I just laid in bed with a big dumb smile staring at the ceiling imagining all of the wonderful things a life with Danny is sure to bring,' Larry wrote on his blog, where he chronicled their wedding preparations."
